    Martyrs

    Throughout these past 24 hours after watching this French extreme horror I've been going back and forth about my feelings towards this film and whether or not I actually enjoyed it rather than just letting the shock value get to me.

    I feel like the cinematography and acting is great, especially the acting. The two main characters acting is great and every actor seems to fit into their roles really good. No character feels out of place during the entire…

  • The Exorcist

    The Exorcist

    After finally watching this highly controversial horror classic I can understand why it was the first in its genre to earn a Best Picture nominee.

    The Exorcist paved the way for so many movies in it genre. It even helped to revolutionaze the film industry as a whole with its mix between efficient special and practical effects. There are so many remarkable set pieces and scenes from this film that everyone has either seen or heard of. For me one of…

  • Billy Star

    This is the ”Runaway” of 2017. This is the ”Call Me By Your Name” of alternative hip-hop. This is the great short film that Kevin should be really proud of.

    Billy Star has really impressive cinematography but It felt like it went all in with beautiful shots and forgot to work on its romantic story between Helmet Boy and Summer.

    22 minutes of Brockhampton is really all I needed in my life. If you love the world’s best boyband like me, this is must watch! 

    4/5

  • It Comes at Night

    It Comes at Night

    Great cinematography. Great score. Decent story that could’ve been worked on if the movie would’ve had those extra minutes to its run-time that it so desperately needed. 

    No zombies, no monsters, no scary ghosts. The creepy feeling that you get comes from the marvelous camerawork. This film is just visual satisfaction to its fullest. 
    4/5

  • Baby Driver

    Baby Driver

    This movie has been a wild ride for me. At first I thought it was great, then after seeing some mixed reviews of it, I got convinced that I didn't like it just as much as I originally thought.
     Now in retrospect thinking back on it, I realize that I really enjoyed it and that the uniqe ”style-over-substance” (as many people call it) that Wright uses in all of his movies is perfect for me.

    As many others, I didn't…

    ★★★★

    The avrage life conversations of the people Panahi picks up and the way they feel so realisitic is what makes this a 4-STAR movie for me. The dialoges from his passengers as they told their stories sometimes made me get a picture of what the Iranian society might be like. 


    I dont know anything about iranian politics or the message this movie tries to put out, but I do understand that Panahi must have taken a huge risk making this…
