2023-01-30: The Fabelmans, 2022 - ★★★½ All round a not-so-bad film. Chuckled at the quick horizon shift at the end. A nice telling of the …

2023-01-17: Here’s Mabel the cat having a yawn 🐱

2023-01-11: A Man Called Otto, 2022 - ★★★★ First film of 2023! This film is a precise mashup of Gran Torino and Up. Even had the trip to the …

2022-11-12: The Silence of the Lambs, 1991 - ★★★★½ What a performance from Anthony Hopkins, genuinely terrifying. Probably a bit criminal that it took …

2022-11-02: Taxi Driver, 1976 - ★★★★ What a rollercoaster. Some great soundtracking and the shots are superb. A wild, wandering journey …

2022-10-30: The Banshees of Inisherin, 2022 - ★★★★½ So good. Bleak and funny. Great acting. The “takes two to tango” back and forth had me laughing my …

2022-10-20: Amsterdam, 2022 - ★★½ Not great, not bad. Cast is insane but the story is maybe a bit too convoluted for me. I do like …

2022-09-14: Jaws, 1975 - ★★★★★ Saw this in IMAX for a special. It’s just iconic. Animatronics are better than CGI. That classic …

2022-09-14: Flightplan, 2005 - ★★★ I don’t think Sean Bean says “bastard” in this film, which would’ve definitely bought it another …

2022-09-09: Heat, 1995 - ★★★★½ Spent the whole film thinking it looked familiar. Then “GREAT ASS” and it came flooding back. What a …

2022-08-21: Nope, 2022 - ★★★★½ Think we could have another contender for film of the year on this one. I guess when we see …

2022-04-03: Turning Red, 2022 - ★★★★ Could relax once I found the Pizza Planet truck. Animation has come on such a ridiculous length in a …

2022-03-31: The Worst Person in the World, 2021 - ★★★ I’m not sure what I was meant to leave this film thinking or feeling. Julie’s a long way from the …

2022-03-20: The Batman, 2022 - ★★★½ A beautiful film. Batman doesn’t really develop at all throughout the film though. It’s also a …

2022-03-18: Films in which Jim Broadbent says “the greater good” Hot Fuzz The Duke

2022-03-17: The Duke, 2020 - ★★★★½ A simple story of a remarkable bloke. Bonus points for getting Jim Broadbent to say “the greater …

2022-03-11: The Godfather: Part II, 1974 - ★★★★ Lacked a bit of something that the first film had for me - just a bit of the magic. Still remarkably …

2022-02-15: Dune, 2021 - ★★★★ A lot of setting up shop for movie two. And space bagpipes

2022-02-13: Us, 2019 - ★★★★ I went to watch this film on my own in the cinema when it was released. If it weren't for the comic …

2022-02-12: Se7en, 1995 - ★★★★ Great film, annoying to have forced ‘7’ into the name and make this film so much of a pain to find

2022-02-11: Nightmare Alley, 2021 - ★★★ I think maybe what was going to happen was a bit too signposted for me? Nonetheless, a good film …

2022-02-09: Jackass Forever, 2022 - ★★★★ It’s juvenile comedy, it really is. There’s something just so funny about seeing someone take a …
