    Titanic

    ★★★★★

    Titanic has always held a special place in my heart and of all my favourite movies it's the one I've had the longest history with. The first time I watched the movie, or rather parts of it, must have been in the early 2000s when I visited some relatives for Christmas and my cousin and I got bored and when we turned on the TV the ship just started to sink, which was pretty scary back then. A few years…

  • Stoker

    Stoker

    ★★★★★

    When it comes to Stoker there's a lot to talk about and to analyse, be it in relation to Park's other movies or on its own but ultimately that one thing that stood out for me the most – what makes it so special for me – among the many things I like about the movie is the piano scene.

I honestly can't imagine myself enjoying it on a rewatch because once you know the twist there isn't much left. This isn't even about already knowing what happened – there are some episodes of Midsomer Murders I've seen so many times I can quote them – it's just that the rest of…

    Suicide Squad

    Isabelle Huppert did not come all the way from France to see Suicide Squad win an Oscar.

  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    ★★★

    This is the 4th movie and Harry still doesn't know how to use any spells except expelliarmus. That's what happens when the exams get cancelled every year because Voldemort only has time to try to kill Harry during exam week.
