    Shit, not but not as shit as I thought.

    Don’t get me wrong, it’s very bad but it’s not funny bad or offensively bad which I was kinda hoping for.

    Cons: Character relationships fall flat, story is unengaging, bad CGI, awful villain, not great action and weird Spider-Man shoe-horns. 

    Pros: Sidney Sweeney. 

    There’s this one scene at the start when funny bad guy Spider-Man kills Dakota Johnson’s mum and there’s about 50 zooms in and out and it’s so funny…

    Revered by acclaimed director Jordan Scott Kennedy as “one of the best screenplays [he’s] ever seen”, I was pretty hyped to watch this and see what all the fuss is about. It’s yeah it’s pretty good. 

    Not really what I expected tbh. It’s less cheesy but fun sports film and more social realist character study. There’s literally 2 fight scenes in the entire film and they are LITERALLY the first and last scene. 

    The personal drama wasn’t absolutely amazing but…

    100th review and 600th film logged!!!

    I was gonna save Morbius for this but there’s always 700 🤷‍♂️.

    Meta post I guess: letterbox is pretty cool. Honestly my most used social media these days and it’s fun to see how a platform with such a young demographic compared to something like rotten tomatoes or meta critic. 

    I think I often fall into the trap of rating my worth as a student of film on how many films I’ve seen recently…

    Why is this shit so funny tho??

    First Yorgos Lanthimos film and i think I shall watch some more!!

    Really interesting but outlandish concepts in this but it moves on so quick you don’t have time to question it, you just accept and appreciate this weird, crazy universe. Never did I think I’d see a steampunk car interbred with a horse. 

    The jokes land so well, the cinema erupted in laughter at least 20 times and I was not expecting…
