    Queen of Diamonds

    ★★½

    The pacing of this movie is enraging, it made me psychotic, I love slow paced movies but this actually robbed me of my sanity. And there’s so much to love about this film which is why it’s so infuriating. 

    The greatest short film ever made stuck inside a feature length film. Lots to love, and one thing to hate specifically; it’s glacial pace. It’s like if David Lynch took a whole pack of XANAX, and passed out on the couch…

    Stagecoach

    ★★★★½

    Having not seen many John Wayne westerns (the searchers might be my only one actually), and having heard high praise of Stagecoach, I was thoroughly pleased to find it a wonderful spectacle.

    The Shawshank Redemption

    ★★★★★

    Caught the second half of this when I got home from work, so it’s technically not a full watch. But my god this film just sucks you in. It’s a really really flawless film. Everything hits perfectly. It’s a perfect storm. And with all the hype, the whole “best movie ever made” schtick it gets, it’s hard not to have great expectations going into this.

     It may not be my favourite movie, it probably doesn’t even crack my top 10…
