    Airplane!

    ★★★

    Airplane! surely (“don’t call me Shirley”) fills up on funny fuel and effortlessly takes off emitting jets of occasional spoofing gold in Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker’s slapstick comedy which flies through a flurry of verbal puns, visual gags and obscure humour with tenacious bravura - mainly due to the assured cast all of whom specialise in deadpan comedic timing - yet as with most parody films, the rapid fire jokes are hit-and-miss but the latter moments here especially seem antiquated.

    One of those comedy classics where people growing up with it would appreciate it more.

  • The Omen

    The Omen

    ★★★

    The Omen raises a seemingly innocent child who just so happens to be the prophesied Anti-Christ in Donner’s renowned horror where the violent deaths caused by the boy’s iniquity conjure several spine-chilling junctures - accompanied by Goldsmith’s terrifying score and Taylor’s shadowy cinematography - yet the obvious mystery surrounding Damien is executed with pendulous suspense, often dragging the potential apprehension to the depths of hell.

    In a world where the intense ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ exists, The Omen unfortunately just feels inferior. Good, but not the classic it’s made out to be.

    Ad Astra

    ★★★★

    Ad Astra galactically depicts sorrow, proving that no one can hear you cry in space. For the past few years, dramas set in the expansive dangers of space have been my bread and butter. Devouring them during my annual breakfast as I purposefully starve myself for the taste of space traversal. Every year, the likes 'Arrival', 'Blade Runner 2049', 'First Man', 'Interstellar' and my all-time favourite film 'Gravity', have secured scores ranging from outstanding to perfect. Whilst Ad Astra may…

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    Everything Everywhere All At Once implodes at the magnitude of its imaginative multiverse omnipotence, with the Daniels’ now signature idiosyncratic randomness serving the plethora of goofy alternate universes to frenetic perfection, yet it’s the profound familial drama acting as the narrative cerebrum that truly shrouds the viewer in a cosmic whirlwind of emotional heft - Yeoh especially flexes her endless range of acting virtuosity, and Quan wonderfully grounds her wholesome character arc - ingeniously highlighting the significance within the insignificant.

    Hilarious. Thrilling. Existential. Dramatic. Heartfelt. Original. Ambitious. 

    Yeah, I want to watch it again. Immediately.
