    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★★

    This is easily my favourite film in the “home” trilogy. Tom Holland is at his best, the chemistry between him and Zendaya is at its best, the brutality and intensity of the fight sequences are perfect, the supporting cast and their chemistry are terrific (I’m looking at you Willem Dafoe) and the balance of humour, heart and action was perfect. I was almost in tears at several points in the film. It’s just a shame that the plot itself was…

    I’m not sure if there is any point in writing anything of merit here. It would be words wasted because I’m just not sure whether I would do this film any justice. Not really sure how I would go capturing where this film took me and how it made me feel. I also feel that I would be wasting both my time and yours going on and on about the frame composition, set design, colours, lighting, sets, styling, characters, dialogue,…

    ★★★½

    What a treat! I loved all the risks this film took. From its character arcs to the way Vaughn framed and composed his action sequences, this film was full of risks. And they all landed. Except the plot twist. That wasn’t much of a twist at all because it bore very little to no emotional weight or significance. Not to mention it didn’t really make any sense. But Rasputin was a treat. And so was that sword pov. I also genuinely…

    Some very cool animation and effects in here and a pretty musically interesting soundtrack. It also had a huge heart. I just wish it made a little more sense.

    ………..

    What the hell did I just watch. Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman bared their entire souls giving these performances. I am certain they both went to a place unheard of by the majority. The calibre of these performances was seriously something else. And the scenes they had together were mesmerising. 

    The cinematography was masterful to say the least. The lighting in this film was insane. I just could not believe how perfectly crafted some of the frames in…

    The Last Duel

    ★★★★½

    A brutal, honest, tragic and heartbreaking look at society and the place women had in it. 

    The performances in this film exceeded all of my expectations. Ben Affleck had far too much fun with this role, and Driver and Damon gave some truly impressive performances. However, Jodie Comer stole this film - without a question. Her performance was flawless. I think she should be nominated for this film - I was truly mesmerised and captivated every time she was on…
