• Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

    ★★★★½

    There are some issues especially with some of the dialogue and the way some scenes were handled, but overall I loved it. It improves over the previous 2 prequels in every way to deliver a big, bold, somber and beautiful film. Top 3 Star Wars films.

  • Crimes of the Future

    Crimes of the Future

    ★★★★½

    I was interested in Crimes of the Future. It looked quite intriguing, had a good cast which included Viggo Mortensen, Lea Seydoux and Kristen Stewart, but most of all, it would be David Cronenberg’s first movie in many years. Not only that but it would be a body horror movie, and the last one he made was in the late 90s. I’m glad to say that I quite liked this movie.

    Something worth noting is that David Cronenberg had previously…

  • Thor: Ragnarok

    Thor: Ragnarok

    ★★★½

    Definitely has its faults, and I like it less than when I watched it back at the cinema in 2017.

    The best way I can describe this movie is hit or miss. The visual effects and cinematography can be great in parts such as some locations in Sakaar or the Valkyries vs Hela flashback sequence, but can be very bland and mediocre in others especially in Asgard (which looks worse with every subsequent Thor film). The humour can be funny…

  • Diamonds Are Forever

    Diamonds Are Forever

    ★½

    Diamonds Are Forever follows on from On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, which quickly became one of my favourite Bond movies. Going into my rewatch of Diamonds of Forever I did hear some things about it, first of all that Sean Connery returned to play Bond, and second of all that it was one of the worst films in the series. Before my rewatches of Bond, I didn’t remember much of the movies, so I was curious to see what made…

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★★

    It still has its issues. Some of the CGI can look really off (especially in the first act), and the writing isn't great. Character motivations for Wanda's villain turn is certainly explainable but rather uninteresting (that usually happens when you have a character's corruption due to a vaguely evil object of corruption). Also the typical MCU jokes, as well as the Illuminate (obligatory cameos) section were definitely low points for the movie.

    That being said, there's a lot I like…

  • Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

    Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

    ★★★½

    While it has often been referred to as the worst Star Wars movie, its never been that for me since Phantom Menace is worse for me. Still, I used to find this movie to be average but it does improve upon each viewing. I actually think this movie is alright now.

    I still have issues with it. The CGI and green screen are very dated and doesn't really hold up (but I got used to it), and some plot decisions…

  • On Her Majesty's Secret Service

    On Her Majesty's Secret Service

    ★★★★½

    Out of all the James Bond movies I was rewatching, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service was one of the films I was most looking forward to. From its reputation, I had heard that it was very different for a Bond movie (even beyond it being the only George Lazenby Bond movie). Not only that, but the latest instalment No Time to Die apparently took a lot from this film, so I was curious to see the similarities. Having watched it,…

  • You Only Live Twice

    You Only Live Twice

    ★★★½

    I didn’t know how they would hold up today, but I found myself pleasantly surprised with the Sean Connery era. However with the fourth movie Thunderball, I was rather disappointed and found it okay at best. I wasn’t sure about how the next movie You Only Live Twice would fare. Having seen it, I would not call it a good movie; it is really silly and I would not place it as the better half of James Bond, but I…

  • Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

    Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

    ★★★

    Still my least favourite Star Wars movie, but better than I remember it being. The CGI doesn't really hold up, some story decisions are a little baffling, the Trade Federation and battle droids make for unremarkable villains, and the overtly child friendly approach can take away from the film (especially with the humour). But they're not enough to make me dislike the movie anymore.

    I don't even hate the aspects that most people do. I don't like Jar Jar Binks…

  • Elvis

    Elvis

    ★★★★½

    Elvis was a movie that intrigued me leading up to its release. I’ve only seen three of Baz Luhrmann’s movies, I enjoyed his divisive adaptation of The Great Gatsby, but straight up disliked Moulin Rogue and Romeo + Juliet (which are generally liked by people). I just couldn’t get into his style and while I liked some aspects, Baz seemed to be just a filmmaker whose style just wasn’t for me. Then after a very long time since his last…

  • Return of the Jedi

    Return of the Jedi

    ★★★★

    Definitely flawed and the worst of the trilogy. The first act with rescuing Han wasn't that good for the most part, wasn't a big fan of the Ewoks section. I also hate some of the changes George Lucas added (Jedi Rocks, Darth Vader’s “Nooo”, etc). However its pretty good, the great parts are really great, with the Luke and Vader stuff being pretty much perfect. Not one of my favourite Star Wars films, but decent overall.

  • The Empire Strikes Back

    The Empire Strikes Back

    ★★★★★

    Best Star Wars movie, and one of the best sequels. I really have nothing more to add, it's just amazing all around.
