  • Murder Mystery

    Murder Mystery

    ★★★½

    I am aware that 'Murder Mystery' is by no means a 'great' film. However, I was extremely entertained for its short runtime. If you chuck me a murder mystery story and slap on some Adam and Jennifer, I'm going to like it. This film gave me pretty much everything I wanted from it. It was simply a watchable and enjoyable film.

  • Django Unchained

    Django Unchained

    ★★★★½

    I've been meaning to watch this film for a while and let me tell you, 'Django Unchained' is sick! I loved it! Everyone in this is perfect. Jamie is great, Christoph perfect and Leo legendary. What's new? This movie is exciting the whole way through.

    I'm not giving it five stars because of the excessive blood (I'm a sulk, ok) and some of the certain derogatory terms for various groups of people were used a bit excessively but I guess that is in context of the time. Anyway, this is a pretty awesome film.

  • Hans Zimmer Live in Prague

    Hans Zimmer Live in Prague

    ★★★★½

    Hans Zimmer is one of the few film composers who manages to astound me with the music he creates every single time. His music adds a whole other level to a film, making it almost a character in and of itself. I love that he is so incredibly passionate about his work and acknowledges his massive fan base by doing concerts like these. I love that he appreciates the people who play for him. I love that he joins in playing with them - he is never excluded or detached from the beautiful orchestral pieces that unravel before you. What a man, what a concert.

  • Goosebumps

    Goosebumps

    ★★★

    'Goosebumps' is a pretty solid kids film with a great story that made scary books come alive aaahhh! This movie is actually hella scary. If I saw this when I was younger I would have been very scared. I mean, what else can I say? Jack was a treasure as always and Dylan never lets me down. Also shout out to Ryan Lee who was a third wheel a lot of the time. He was pretty hilarious. Anyway, that's about that. I have no idea why I watched this film.

  • Aladdin

    Aladdin

    ★★★½

    'Aladdin' is a film I didn't want to like and really didn't want to but dammit, I did! I honestly hate Disney for remaking their classic animations - it is so unnecessary every time and so obviously done to make money off nostalgia which I am not a fan of (rant over). But here's the thing: it's Aladdin, of course I would like it. Yes, I know I am part of the problem.

    I really enjoyed what they did with…

  • The Other Guys

    The Other Guys

    ★★★★

    'The Other Guys' was surprisingly delightful and funny. Get me Mark, get me Will and I will most certainly laugh my head off. I pretty much loved every second of this. No, it's not perfect but it is damn entertaining. It was mostly all good except for that one guy's atrocious Australian accent. Disgraceful!

  • Heathers

    Heathers

    ★★★★

    Ok,'Heathers' was totally rad. It was not at all what I was expecting it to be which made it so much better. Christian and Winona are literal gods in this film and the ending is perfecto! I mean, as far as 80s rom-coms go (I mean, it's not really that is it) this one was fun and original. I had a good laugh.

    PS: My sister and I the whole time were like: 'what if the guy is death or the devil? It has to be a metaphor!' We read too much into it because we watch too many psychological thrillers haha

  • Always Be My Maybe

    Always Be My Maybe

    ★★★½

    'Always Be My Maybe' knew exactly what it was - a cheesy but pretty enjoyable rom-com that had a nice story and a cameo from Keanu Reeves. It didn't try to be anything else. Who could ask for more?

  • Paddleton

    Paddleton

    ★★★★½

    I can't properly express my feelings for 'Paddleton' after just watching it and sobbing nearly the entire way through. Something about this film made it feel real. Maybe how it was doomed from the start or maybe how the character's interactions were eerily lifelike.

    This film has made me incredibly upset - it's reminded me how precious a life, even just one, can be. The melancholic and wholesomely cheerful tone of this movie makes it unique in expressing its message of friendship and pain. I hate this film for making me cry so much but I love it for everything else.

  • Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules

    Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules

    ★★★★★

    Watched this cracker of a film today in wet weather at school. I can quote this movie inside and out. It's perfect to me. I don't care what you have to say. You can't change my mind. This is cinema.

  • John Wick

    John Wick

    ★★★★

    'John Wick' was aesthetically and action-packedly pleasing. This film kept me entertained the whole way through - I loved the action style, the lighting, the cinematography, the acting and the music. For a seemingly standard action flick, good old John impressed me quite a bit.

  • Moulin Rouge!

    Moulin Rouge!

    ★★★★★

    'Moulin Rouge!' is one of those films I will always come back to and appreciate every time I see it. It is as entertaining, hilarious, magical and devastating the umpteenth time you see it as it is the first. Everything is perfect. The sets, the costumes, the music, the singing, the acting, the hazy and dreamlike way everything is filmed.

    If a film has music and it is sad, you've already got me but this movie offers so much more…
