    Fast Five

    ★★★★

    "Where's Letty, Dom? Where's Letty?"

    Yeah, 'where the fuck is she, you idiots' was also my primary concern while watching Fast Five for the first time back in 2017. At that point I hadn't seen Fast & Furious, all I knew was that they had brought back the main cast from the original in the fourth movie. Naturally I assumed Letty would be in Fast Five and I was pissed off that I didn't get to see Michelle Rodriguez.

    The reason…

  • Leaving Las Vegas

    Leaving Las Vegas

    ★★★★

    Leaving Las Vegas is typically known as the movie in which Nicolas Cage drinks himself to death, which he does. And he does it well. It's one of Cage's more subtle performances and he deserved all the accolades he received.

    So did Elisabeth Shue (though she "lost" the Oscar to Susan Sarandon). I think that her part of the story is the more interesting, actually. Sera is an even more damaged soul than Ben and I find her situation frustratingly…

  • Babylon

    Babylon

    ★★★★

    Film has always been the most corrupted of art forms. In what is the most ambitious undertaking of his still young career, writer-director Damien Chazelle juxtaposes the magic movies ideally convey with the often unsavory practices behind the scenes and the business side of filmmaking. As per Chazelle's own words, his sprawling three-hour epic is "a hate letter to Hollywood and a love letter to Cinema".

    While the trailers proclaim Babylon to be an unruly exercise in excess and debauchery,…

    The Prestige

    ★★★★★

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

    "Obsession is a young man's game."

    The Prestige was my first Christopher Nolan film, I'm pretty sure. I definitely watched Batman Begins only after The Dark Knight had blown me away back in '08, and I doubt that I even knew about his previous works at that point. Back then I still was way more into music than into movies. I don't remember much about my first time watching The Prestige, except it was with a group of friends, meaning…

    Dune

    ★★½

    Well, that wasn't very good.

    Dune collapses under its gargantuan ambition. Denis Villeneuve builds a world so stupendously large in every frame, and yet he spectacularly fails at creating space for his characters to exist in. There isn't a single character that has more to offer than mere surface level traits. Without proper introduction it feels like we are thrown right into an ongoing story. Despite being littered with clunky exposition - and dialogue so wooden it would give Christopher…

    ★★★★

    Say what you want about Top Gun, but Tony Scott was a goddamn painter with his camera.
