    The City of Lost Children

    ★★½

    Fantastic world-building...but that’s about it, in my eyes.

    As I said, the city designed within was brilliant and definitely my type of thing. It reminded me of things from Tim Burton, and I’m a big fan of those grungy, steam-punk, cold, wet, always night-time worlds. The ones that seem magical and so other-worldly that you can’t help but wish you were there. It also reminded me of Little Nightmares, a video game that sometimes has a similar feel to the…

    Raging Bull

    ★★★★

    A gripping portrayal of not only an ugly, violent sport but an ugly, possessive, jealous, paranoid, frustrated, violent man.

    This is definitely one of the more impressive films from Scorsese, for me anyway. From the beginning, you can see just how Jake LaMotta’s insecurities shine through into his personality. He hangs on to every word, every sentence, and makes it his own. He manipulates the people around him and makes them inhabit the same animalistic qualities he possesses.

    Jake consistently…
