    A Fistful of Dollars

    ★★★★

    86/100

    Following on from our three weekends of watching our chosen war films, my father and I decided to embark upon a western journey for the build up to Christmas. We decided to start on one of the all time classics ‘A Fistful of Dollars’ which I have never actually seen before. It’s safe to say it didn’t disappoint. I was fearful of Clint Eastwood’s acting being too wooden and all based on long stares and menacing chewing but I…

    Parasite

    ★★★★½

    94/100

    Parasite’ is an extremely well made film. There are many reasons for its excellence. Its plot is intricate. Its acting is humanised. Its cinematography is crisp.

This story isn’t about Parker but instead Miles Morales. It’s a heartwarming and exciting story which is both extremely meta and hilarious in equal amounts. The humour is more self…

  • BlacKkKlansman

    BlacKkKlansman

    ★★★★

    86/100

    Spike Lee’s ‘BlacKkKlansman’ tells the remarkable true story of an African American police officer who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan. The story of course comes with severity as with the topic that is to be expected but I sure wasn’t expecting to laugh as much as I did. A fun film which points and provokes at the pure ridiculousness and absurdity of American society both back then and today in redheads to racism, white supremacy and racial intolerance. Lee…
