    No Time to Die

    ★★★½

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

    I was surprised at how much I enjoyed No Time To Die. It has some of the same problems as the last couple of films (too grimdark, the third entry in a row thar asks Do We Still Need A Relic Like James Bond In This Day And Age, underwhelming performance from the villain) but it has what all Bond movies should have - a climax with a Doomsday Plot being carried out by an Evil Genius on his Secret…

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    A disastrous ending to “The Skywalker Saga” as they would have you now refer to this 9 film story.

The Emperor’s death at the end of the movie is also meaningless since we’ve established that not even being thrown down a power shaft and blown up twice can kill him, so who cares?

    Shameless fan service,…

    Crazy World

    ★★★★

    A privileged moment: a thousand people gathered together to watch a deranged Wakaliwood action film with live feature length narration from Video Joker VJ Emmie. The fourth wall came crashing down at the halfway point. A potent reminder that cinema can do anything and everything, the sheer exuberance of creativity, budget be damned. Certainly one of the best TIFF screenings ever.
