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 Grey (2011) Review – Once More Into The Fray

When this movie came out back in 2011, I remember movie fans talking about it a lot. Unfortunately, most of that talk was about how people felt betrayed by the trailer, as it made it seem like an action movie. What didn’t help the cause was the fact the director removed a scene of Liam […]

Review: “Settlers”

The western and science fiction genres share several similar themes, particularly when the subject of the latter is exploration into the unknown, essentially transporting the frontier from the American West to the edges of outer space. It can be exciting and fascinating and introspective when done right. Unfortunately, writer and director Wyatt Rockefeller’s film “Settlers” […]

The Conversation: The Dangers Of Playing God

Rating: 8.5 out of 10. Sometimes, it’s simply just hard to put things into words. Which, I know, is silly, as I clack-clackity-clack away here at my computer. But sometimes, things are really too brilliant to try and justify – it feels disrespectful to do so to the Sistine Chapel ceiling, say. So forgive […]

Metin Erksan / Sevmek Zamanı / 1965

Sinema yönetmen sanatıdır. Erksan dünya çapında ustadır. Bu aralar sevdiğim siyah beyaz filmleri yeniden izliyorum, pek çoğunu yazmışım, yazmadıklarımı da zaman zaman eklemeye gayret edeceğim. Konusunu herkes biliyordur; Halil, Meral’in fotoğrafına aşık olur; Meral, Halil’in aşkına. Mekân, tüm bu öykünün yayıldığı üçüncü bir varlığın ifadesine dönüşür ki Erksan’ın alametifarikası da kendini böyle gösterir. Öykü gözlerimizin […]

Film Review: “The Last Letter from Your Lover” (2021)

Rating: 3.5 out of 5. Who does not like watching love stories? Whether it is with a happy ending or not, it has something to warm our hearts. Remember Arthur Hiller’s “Love Story” (1970) with Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal? Or “The Way We Were” (1973) with Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford or the […]

Gunpowder Milkshake

Spoiler alert: I’m pretty sure the milkshake’s actually just vanilla. Public safety notice: Don’t eat gunpowder. It’s not delicious and it also might set your toots on fire. Friendly piece of advice: Chocolate beats vanilla. Peanut-butter-brownie’s even better. Salted-caramel-pretzel is the best. Movie premise: Sam (Karen Gillan) is abandoned as a child by her assassin […]

Film Review: “Black Widow” (2021)

Rating: 4 out of 5. Black Widow is one of the most fascinating characters I personally started respecting after her ultimate sacrifice in The Avengers End Game. There’s something about her you can’t disregard. It’s not just her contagious charm or ability to convince the rest of the world why she deserves to be […]

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 […]

“The Sleepless Unrest”

It doesn’t look like much. The Harrisville, Rhode Island home might not get a lot of second or third looks on Zillow. “Needs paint” translates as “rustic” and “historic.” “Low ceilings” just means its out of date. But “historic” is right on the mark. This 300 year-old wood frame/clapboard house is where the events depicted […]
