  • The Loved Ones

    The Loved Ones

    ★★★★½

    a flawlessly executed teen horror ! john hughes meets saw

  • Mandy

    Mandy

    ★★★★½

    this was CLASS! absolutely visually stunning and gloriously pastiche and fun and Nicolas Cage's performance also gives a really impressive amount of heart to a fairly sparse script and story

    (definitely watch high def on a big TV with proper speakers if you can i rly regret watching on a laptop and also missing it in cinemas cos reckon it would be truly transcendental, tbh it's not a great laptop movie)

  • Knives Out

    Knives Out

    ★★★★½

    was worried about watching this because of the hype but it really delivered, really simple concept executed with just absolute technical and creative excellence, the cast is GOLD. 2 hours of just solid top-quality entertainment with the perfect balance between campiness and compelling and timely underlying themes. i also loved Daniel Craig's absurd accent idc
