    Tenet

    I, a lifelong, hardcore Nolan fan, just don’t know how I feel about TENET, and I don’t know if I’m ever going to.

    It’s weird, because in the five days since seeing it (and I’ve been lucky enough to see it twice already), I’ll find myself in moments thinking “oh my god I love it”, and then a minute later thinking “Chris, what the fuck”.

    And I don’t really know how to break that down.

    The scale, scope, ambition, spectacle…

    Weird that we don't talk more about how Denis Villeneuve invented cinema, right?

  • Mission: Impossible II

    Mission: Impossible II

    Seeing a car/motorbike chase through outer Sydney featuring Ford Falcons and Nissan Patrols in a massive Hollywood blockbuster added literal years to my life.

    Why did no one warn me this was set in Australia and also that it's amazing?

    Quantum of Solace

    You know that tweet about James Bond having a stroke? The "Bames Nond" one?

    Reading that tweet is how it felt to watch this movie.

    Impossible to quanitfy how much more fun this was on a rewatch now that I'm not 10 years old and actually know what the fuck is going on in the poker games

  • The Invisible Man

    The Invisible Man

    This felt like a horror movie tailor-made for me.

    Everything from the crawling camera, the reverence of wide shots, the small-scale intimacy, the geometric ingenuity, that roaring Benjamin Wallfisch score and the precision of its mind games had me locked in and leaning forward from frame one.

    Elizabeth Moss was a primal force that anchored the story with incredible empathy, and writer/director Leigh Whannell orchestrated her ongoing circumstances with that perfect mixture of dread and tension that taps into the…

    Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

    Loved it.

    Adored it.

    Pretty damn close to my new-age comic-book movie dream come true.

    Fierce and fiery and freakin' spectacular. Staggeringly creative & surprisingly purposeful. Not a shot or dollar went astray.

    I bow down to Robbie, Yan & Hodson. This was 1000% MY SHIT.

    Can't believe the sea-soaked combo of Dafoe and Pattinson farting and jacking off in black & white was that euphoric.

    That's two Will Smiths too many, thanks

    Le Samouraï

    Really, really liked this. Effortlessly cool, while also being the kinf of movie where you know that vibe wasn't easy to achieve. Some very spicy camera movement indeed.
