    2001: A Space Odyssey

    ★★★★

    HAL 9000; the most menacing villain in cinema history.

    How the actual fuck did this movie come out in the 60s?  It literally looks like a 100 million dollar early 2000s film.

    I’m not going to write a review for this film, you all know it’s good.  I will say though, that memory erasing scene is some masterful art, I almost shed a tear.

    But like goddamn Kubrick, you couldn’t have cut this down just a bit?  Literally every shot is a solid 10 seconds too long.  

    To be fair they look pretty cool though.

    This shit’s deep.

    I haven’t fully processed this film yet but I’m 99% sure it’s my favourite movie of 2021 so far. (I need to rewatch Annette just to double check on that though.)

    This film was phenomenal.  It blew me away. The visuals, that anxiety inducing soundtrack, and Kristen fucking Stewart, all collectively helped to bring me to tears in some truly astounding moments.  I was worried going into this movie that it would be too slow or genuinely boring, feelings I…

    Funny Games

    ★★★★

    Only Michael Haneke could make a film so unorthodox and messed up, that I would start to think it’s really cool.

    Funny Games is the anti everything film. It’s meta through its fourth wall breaks, and clear commentary on people’s perception of violence in film.  It has a story that completely relies on the viewer being entertained by watching a family be tormented by two psychopaths.  And to top it all off it gives the viewer zero satisfaction.  The film…
