    I’ve wanted to watch this one since it was first bouncing around festivals four or five years ago, but it wasn’t until April of this year that Severin Films released a UK friendly BluRay package for it and so now I finally got the chance to sit down with this.

    Was it worth the wait? Well, the answer is complicated.

    I want to refer you to my review of The Ritual as in a lot of ways, the two films…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Not a proper review, I was just going through my Facebook Memories and saw my Dad having a rare geek out moment over this film. My Dad is an inward geek, but doesn't often outwardly fly the flag.

    During *that* moment, he turned to me, bright eyed and said, "Look, it's fucking Darth Vader... Darth bloody Vader."

    Don't really remember much else about the film, I'll need to watch it again but this was a nice memory to be reminded of and so I am giving it five stars for that reason.

    2021 might be the most boring year of my life, at least within memory. I feel like we are only now starting to really feel the impact 2020 had on the entertainment industry. We are getting new things, but it is dribbled out to us between vast voids of nothing and for the first time in about a year at home, I am really starting to climb the walls.

    This gave me a tough, first world problem this weekend, the…

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    For those wondering, I am alive and well. I just haven’t really had much interest in movies for really a long while now. However, with an event like the Snyder Cut, I had to come back and share some thoughts and so here they are.

    For context, while I am a fan of both DC comics, Zack Snyder’s work and movies in general, I never really had much hype for this. I can count on one hand the number of…

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    While Lou Bloom's story may not be the most original, the quality of Nightcrawler's filmmaking sets it above and beyond pretty much all of the others. Stylishly filmed with a blend of film and digital, this is an impossibly smart and endlessly on point satire that effortlessly weaves around the usual traps and pitfalls of this genre and carries us, utterly invested, through to the end.

    It also helps that Lou is played beautifully by the man of a thousand…

    Kingsman: The Secret Service

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    My backlog of films is so large it almost defies comprehension and I decided I could probably put Kingsman on the back burner. I've had it since release day, it's a hot commodity right now and until writing this review I figured I'd said all I had to say about the title. But I was wrong.

    To get it out of the way, if I was to have any criticisms of Kingsman at all, it would be the pace. Many…
