Dumping Margot Robbie is the most fantastical element in this

Spider-Man: No Way Home 2021
Forget about the messy first act and the many on the nose references.
Screw my inner critic noticing all the mistakes.
I am floored.
I wasn't as hyped as everyone was since the idea seemed like it wouldn't work on a feature film and Im not even too big on the spiderman films in general.But I was wrong.Much like the recent spiderverse,No Way Home(still a stupid title) captures the essence of spider-man that originally made him such an…
Secret Sunshine 2007
All of Chang-Dong's films clinge towards the depressing side of the scale but none feel quite as bleak & hopeless as Secret Sunshine.The story starts as a mother and her child move to Miryang to make a new start after the death of her husband.After losing her child and with it any chance of moving forward she is left with nothing,a mere shadow of who she was before in a town that now seems more hostile than ever.Here we see a…
Poetry and Empathy are inextricably linked to one another.Poets use poetry as not only a means of expression but also to re-enforce their connection with ideas,others or the world at large.To create meaningful art also means to care,to believe that things can get better otherwise there is no point in making it in the first place.
Therefore the statement in the middle of the film,where the two celebrated artists argue that poetry is dying,could also represent the fear that empathy…

Peppermint Candy 1999
This has to be one of the finest,most well-thoughtout screenplays ever writen.A man commits suicide by standing in front of a moving train and in the same way they often say our lives pass before our eyes moments before we die,time starts moving backwards taking the audience on a journey of self discovery by showing us all the important events of the man's life.
Chang-Dong uses the railroad lines as a time machine that can only ever go at one…
On one hand Dune has to be one of the finest(techinically speaking)films Hollywood has ever made.The sets are astonishing,the visuals groundbreaking,the cinematography awe-inspiring.The cast is basically as if someone who read the book envisioned a dream team for all the parts and then actually succeded in getting all of them to portray them.The Score is powerful as Hell.A True Epic in every way shape,way or form and one of the coolest cinematic experiences I've ever had.
After Life 1998
I was wondering how a film with such an astoundingly intriguing premise could be so underseen,now I know why.Should be studied in film classes across the world on the importance of the "Show Don't Tell" rule and what happens when you do the Exact Opposite.
And to think of how excited I was to see it,My Disappointment is Immeasurable and My day is ruined.
Despite the simplicity of the script,Villeneuve tells the story with so much care and respect that he allows viewers who were not familiar with the real life masssacre immediately understand the significance of the event as well as feel the weight of every shot fired at the canadian polytechnique.
Whilist I don't think Denis has any particular style that he brings to all his films,I believe he has the abillity to adapt and change his style given the needs of…
