    The Taking of Pelham One Two Three

    ★★★★★

    Smart, fast and an absolute thrill from start to finish. Every character no matter how minor has moments to shine and a personality. Unbelievable how much fun I had with this one. 

    Robert Shaw is the ideal man. 

    Also, greatest final shot in a movie ever.

    ★★★½

    Manages to take the franchise into modern times while still keeping the old school charms. Genuinely impressed by how much consistent this franchise is.

    Sure it’s not as witty as the first two but I fail to understand the hate for this. It’s actually kinda fun. Maybe I’m a sucker for the Scream movies because there’s something weirdly nostalgic about it.

    Looks like Randy was right, sequels are inferior to their original. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t fun.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The part where Stu is more afraid of his parents being mad at him instead of being in prison or dying from his wounds is the most relatable scene in cinema.


     Great movie that gets better on rewatch.

    ★★★★½

    A tale of trauma and generational violence. Pretty bleak and sad. Nick Nolte and James Coburn are fantastic. Gotta say this is my fav Schrader so far.

    ★★★★

    This is my first Jane Campion movie and wow. Has a beautiful immersive quality to it akin to Malick. Bolstered by some truly powerful performances especially a career best from Cumberbatch.

    Honestly, appreciate Netflix for making a film 90% of its userbase will shut off 20 mins in.

    Also, Johnny Greenwood is the man.

    ★★★★½

    Love movies where people are investigating. Absolutely my kind of shit. 

    Just a brilliant picture in every way. The kind that makes you say “they don’t make it like that anymore.”  Cinema in the 70s used to go so hard.

    Paul Schrader is allowed to post rubbish on Facebook if that means he keeps giving us bangers like this

  • The Maltese Falcon

    The Maltese Falcon

    ★★★½

    A 1940s mystery with Humphrey Bogart where people are looking for a priceless treasure and where every one is a morally corrupt bastard, is hard not to like or appreciate but at the same time I would expect something like this to be more thrilling than it is. Still a pretty solid noir.

    M NIGHT SHYAMALAN 🔥🔥🔥

    Finally got to see this movie and holy shit…

    Shyamalan proves yet again that he’s one of the most interesting directors working rn. This is some of his boldest work on a thematic level and his most accomplished work in terms of technicalities (the camerawork is INSANE).

    Features some of the scariest moments in a film I’ve seen. Some of the body horror moments are absolutely terrifying. At the same time, it also features some of…
