    Ben-Hur is a sweeping epic that is grand in scale and production. Charlton Heston is incredible in his portrayal as Judah Ben-hur, and the direction is more or less perfect from William Wyler making this overbloated film feel much shorter. Lots of people talk about the chariot scene, and rightly so, it's absolutely astonishing how this was filmed and still stands up amazingly well today.

    No Time to Die is technically outstanding, from the cinematography, the score, and the production design. Daniel Craig is brilliant as Bond once again, good performance and funny quips. Rami Malek was fine as Safin in small doses, however, I found his character fairly weak and hollow, although all of the other supporting characters worked really well. The pacing was excellent, and I was never bored considering the long run time. The action scenes were expertly crafted, very exhilarating at times, and the ending hit the right beats. Daniel Craig will be missed I'm sure.

    Flashbacks to the 1978 film was a nice fan homage, but it felt like it was only there to create a bit of a subplot, and the direction was a bit lazy in the first 30 minutes. However, Halloween Kills grew on me with its over the top gore and violence, and the kills were entertaining and absolutely brutal. Unfortunately there is not enough Laurie Strode and too much focus on characters I didn't care about especially Anthony Michael Hall…

    We all know how convoluted this franchise has become, but Halloween is tonnes of fun and throughly entertaining, with intense kills, lots of gore, and the incredible music makes its return. Jamie Lee Curtis was great, and it's obvious how much fun she's having in this legendary role. Tone was spot on, and I liked it more this time round.

    I am baffled as to why an Oscar nomination has eluded Tom Hanks for his portrayal of Captain Phillips.

    This does not sit well with me. Hanks was remarkable.

    Phenomena is crazy, chaotic, and has some of the best use of music I've ever heard in a film, loud, grandiose, and just plain awesome. The location settings and cinematography are wonderful, and and story is insane, but so watchable, very intriguing and highly original. Jennifer Connelly was great, and the visuals were superb. Argento magic!
