  • Oppenheimer

    Oppenheimer

    ★★★★★

    Christopher Nolan is one of my favourite filmmakers of all time, and his next ambitious project would be a biopic of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the main who created the atomic bomb. It looked to be something really special, especially with the fantastic cast including Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, and Robert Downey Jr. I knew it would be great, but even I didn’t expect it to be this spectacular.

    Oppenheimer is a very dense movie; it is full of…

  • The Flash

    The Flash

    ★★½

    Saying that the timeline of The Flash movie was a rollarcoaster would be a massive understatement. It’s been in the works for nearly a decade, cycling through multiple different writers and directors. Even when they production began there were tons of setbacks and issues, whether it be with the reshoots, alterations due to regime changes at Warner Bros and DC, and even controversies (to put it mildly) involving its lead star Ezra Miller. As the years went on, my anticipation…

    Bottoms

    ★★½

    Bottoms was one of the most popular movies from last year, so I decided to check it out. I wasn’t sure what to expect from it, I hadn’t seen writer/director’s Emma Seligman’s last film, Shiva Baby. But from the things I heard about it, I had a creeping feeling that it wouldn’t be for me. I was right, though I liked it more than I was expecting to.

    The writing is energetic, and the movie is very much in line…

  • Nimona

    Nimona

    ★★★★

    While I had heard of Nimona, I decided to check it out after it was nominated at the Oscars for Best Animated Film. From my small amount of research, I gathered that Nimona was originally in development at Blue Sky Studios, and when that studio was shut down by Disney, it seemed like this project would never be completed. Eventually, it got picked up at Netflix and Annapurna and it’s just as well, because I’m really not sure that it…

    (Ultimate Cut)

    Originally written on August 6, 2016.

    Batman v Superman was an extremely divisive movie upon its release, particularly with the direction that they took the movie and its iconic characters. However from what I can tell, the 3-hour cut is generally more well received. Whether this version will make you like it more depends on your problems with the original version, if your issues were the pacing and editing you might like this more. If your issues were…

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★★★★★

    Still great and the best DCEU film. So different to what everyone had expected. I love it, it’s honestly one of my favourite comic book films of all time.
