    Neon Genesis Evangelion

    ★★★★★

    Visible confusion. Well,  I... uhh, well fuck.

    Ok so to get it out of the way yes this is one of the best series produced on any medium and no it is not overrated. I keep typing things and deleting them because I have no idea what I’m currently feeling towards this but I want to get some of my thoughts out of the way before I go to bed and before I get a chance to watch End of Evangelion. …

  • Casablanca

    Casablanca

    ★★★★★

    It’s still the same old story. Almost 80 years later and Casablanca remains one of the most iconic films ever made and perhaps the one film that comes to mind when people think of the word ‘movie’. It’s the definition of a classic, but is it a classic because it’s great or is it great because it’s a classic? 

    The truth is that, short of a time machine, there’s really no way to separate the myth and legend of Casablanca

    Saw this a couple of weeks ago. Was fun nothing special (although I think all three leads delivered great performances). I don’t get the extreme hate or extreme praise it gets 🤷🏻‍♀️

  • The Suicide Squad

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★½

    “Good God”
    “If God existed, wouldn't this be proof that he wasn't good at all?”

    Much better than the first one. I enjoyed the edgy humour, excess gore and critique of American imperialism even though all three seemed a bit forced at times and there were moments that actually made me chuckle, starting from the very first fake-out sequence. I also loved the character design here (especially King Nanaue, Ratcatcher 2 the Xenomorph starfish). I feel like it overstayed its welcome a bit though and would have made for an excellent 90 minute movie. 

    Shoutout to Egyptair for upgrading to high quality in-flight screens

    Waltz with Bashir

    Oh no the poor IDF soldiers have PTSD from knowingly participating in a massacre against civilians :( maybe if they were tried and punished for their crimes they would feel better :D 

    As someone mentioned it’s like if a Nazi made a movie trying to get you to sympathise with him because of the PTSD he got from the concentration camps, then proceeded to absolve himself of guilt because he was only a guard and didn’t directly take part in the killing he knew was going on inside. 

    1 star for cool animation / soundtrack
