An American Werewolf in London

Something of a blast, John Landis’ 1981 horror comedy is one of these few films that gets just about everything right. Written in the 60’s, after an experience while working on WWII action movie Kelly’s Heroes, Landis had shelved the result while his own stature grew via hits like Kentucky Fried Movie, Animal House and […]

The Premise: In pursuit of […]

The Ladykillers: Corrosive, Dark And Beautifully British

Rating: 8 out of 10. As if I wasn’t going to dip my toe in for more Peter Sellers! Yes, the pre-eminent British comedian returns, but nine years earlier than Dr. Strangelove in 1955 comedy The Ladykillers – yet, Sellers isn’t the one that steals the show… The plot is simple, yet oh-so-effective: dapper […]

Jojo Rabbit (2019) Review – F*ck Off, Hitler!

Ever since I’ve seen the first trailer for Jojo Rabbit, I knew that this will be a film like no other. I had faith, as Taika Waititi has proven himself several times now (from What We Do in the Shadows (2014), Thor: Ragnarok (2017) to somewhat underseen and underappreciated Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) which if […]

The Fortune

Turning up on Amazon Prime’s streaming service like a lost sock, Mike Nichols’ forgotten comedy is a star-powered throwback to the screwball comedy era, top-lined by Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty. Comedy and period revivals were a big deal in the 70’s, from What’s Up Doc? To The Sting, but The Fortune, despite an illustrious […]

Is The King of Comedy Scorsese’s Best Film? No – It’s Simply The Best Film

Rating: 9 out of 10. Oh – hello there. The following tale of celebrity fetishisation and psychotic delusions is true. And by true, I mean false. Welcome, to The King of Comedy. I’d just like to make this clear: I love this film. And by love, I do not mean hate. In every sense […]

Dr. Strangelove: How Kubrick Made Us Love The Bomb

Rating: 8 out of 10. The world can end in many ways: a super-volcanic eruption, an asteroid impact, a gamma ray burst, a devastating pandemic (that one’s still on the table), even a rogue black hole. But while those are all a vengeful mother nature’s doing, nuclear warfare could only be placed on humanities’ […]

This Is Spinal Tap Still Stands Eighteen Inches Tall

Note : 8.5 sur 10. The cultural zeitgeist of mockumentaries (or ‘rockumentaries’, if you will), a film doesn’t simply get credited with that title without some of the greatest jokes ever to be told. I don’t think I need to say anymore. But I will, because this would a very boring review if I didn’t. This […]
