    Superman II

    ★★★★★

    It's hard to quantify the love I have for Superman II in this blank space. It has been a headline act in my life for as far back as I can remember. It thrilled me as child. Superman was a God to me. The real God (sorry if you are real, God) never stood a chance. With my confused desire of 'the woman Ursa' it was my awakening. Those black thigh-length PVC boots with a slit up the trouser to…

    Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist

    ★★★½

    I've frequented a few Vivienne Westwood shops in my life (with my partner) but I've always felt the watchful eyes of the assistants burrowing into me, like I'm an unwanted outsider cramping the flamboyance with my bland attire, not nearly fabulous enough to be treading the floorboards of such a stylish outlet.

    So it's pleasing to watch Westwood slagging off her own gear (much of it not signed off by her) and how it has all expanded too much for…

    Last Night in Soho

    ★★½

    Though Edgar Wright directs the hell out of this, I found it to be much less involving as a story than I'd hoped. Yes, it oozes panache as we fully expect with Wright, a natural born lover of cinema and still one of Britain's most exciting film makers, but Last Night in Soho ends up being a 2-hour ghost story-cum-slasher film in disguise that seems to have things to say about vile men in seedy London, but then...

    Dune

    ★★½

    Among sections of film fandom, there exists a sense of wanting to start a new religion each time Chris Nolan or Denis Villeneuve release a film. Who would argue? Both directors make weighty stuff, loaded with deep philosophical and psychological components that have breathed fresh life into the modern definition of a blockbuster.

    It could be said that both directors also make largely humourless, perhaps even airless films that weigh like a five-course meal.

    Dune is hefty and gorgeously designed,…

  • Melancholia

    Melancholia

    ★★★★½

    Of Lars Von Trier's films to date, Melancholia has been cited as his most accessible offering. There's a massive blue planet called Melancholia, that is on a collision course with Earth. The film is split into two segments, focusing mainly on the relationship between two sisters played by Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

    Of course, we're all now very familiar with cinematic tales of global destruction. Between Michael Bay and Roland Emmerich, it's a well trodden path. What's refreshing then,…
