Film Review: Criminal (2016)

Sitting at home feeling like death warmed up makes you do things you might not usually consider doing. Like watching a film you might never have thought twice about any other time. Check the cast! Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman, Tommy Lee Jones, Ryan Reynolds, Michael Pitt, and many more! This must be bloody good, right? […] Film Review: Criminal (2016) 0

#Alive, Korean movie (2020)

I don’t know if I ever told you guys this, but I live in an apartment building on the 12th floor. Now there are certain advantages and disadvantages to something like that. For one thing I have one of the best views one could think of. Especially with the fireworks at New Year’s Eve I […] #Alive, Korean movie (2020) 0

Ranking the Twilight Saga Movies

Yes, you read that right. With a lack of new cinema releases and a re-kindled love for Robert Pattinson, I’ve found myself re-watching the Twilight movies over the last 2 weeks. I’ve finished reading Midnight Sun too so expect a post about that sooner or later. I adored Twilight when it was new, all those […] Ranking the Twilight Saga Movies 0

NYFF: Nomadland – Movie Review

Nomadland is the kind of movie that could go very wrong. With Frances McDormand as its star alongside a cast of real-life nomads, in lesser hands it might’ve look like cheap wish fulfillment or showboating at its most gratuitous. Instead, writer-director Chloé Zhao works magic with McDormand’s face and the real world around it, delivering […] NYFF: Nomadland – Movie Review 0

Fanny Lye Deliver’d (2019) Film Tanıtımı

Tarantino filmlerindeki anlatıya hayran birisi gelip ‘’bana bir film öner, hem konvansiyonel sinema temposuna ve hem de arthouse biçimciliğine sahip olsun’’ dese hiç şüphesiz önerim Thomas Clay’in üçüncü uzun metraj filmi olan  “Fanny’nin Yepyeni Hayatı” (Fanny Lye Deliver’d) olurdu. Pandemi gölgesinde geçen 2020’de arthouse film festivalleri de olağanüstü durumdan payını aldı ve film gösterimleri online […] Fanny Lye Deliver’d (2019) Film Tanıtımı 0

Lovecraft Country (2020)

HBO’s new headliner Lovecraft Country is packed with artistry, absurdity, and a twisted sense of reality. The cinematography is breathtaking, and the set design is excellent. The story crafts a dense world of its own—you can’t deny that it is well-done. Essentially, the show plays like a slightly watered-down Jordan Peele film. The sci-fi elements […] Lovecraft Country (2020) 0

The Haunting of Bly Manor

Unsurprisingly, Netflix has all sorts of Halloween treats for the month of October. The Haunting of Bly Manor, though, which drops on October 9th, and is based on the classic horror novella, The Turn of the Screw, by Henry James, is one offering I’m eagerly looking forward to, especially after seeing this trailer.   The Haunting of Bly Manor 0

Wednesday Western 9/09/2020

Not a movie today, but a TV series and equally as good. We recently watched Godless (2017) a one off series on Netflix consisting of 7 brilliant episodes and no second series, so a nice one to just enjoy with a beginning a middle and an end. The plot: (No spoilers as this one is […] Wednesday Western 9/09/2020 0

Finding The Moral Of The Story | Enola Holmes

Eleven grew into a beautiful lady. If you’re a fan of the series Stranger Things, you probably know who Millie Bobby Brown is. I see Millie Bobby Brown as part of this new generation of great actors, her acting in Stranger Things was such a stand out performance, acting with little dialogue and mostly only […] Finding The Moral Of The Story | Enola Holmes 0

“Snowpiercer” Review

Snowpiercer (2013) “Eternal order is prescribed by the sacred engine: all things flow from the sacred engine, all things in their place, all passengers in their section, all water flowing, all heat rising, pays homage to the sacred engine, in its own particular preordained position”. “A blockbuster production with a devilishly unpredictable plot”, says character Wilford in Snowpiercer. That is what this film, directed by Bong Joon-ho (Parasite) and based […] “Snowpiercer” Review 0
