Hobbies? I Watch Movies

Some films old. Some films new. Hopefully not too many films borrowed. Some films filled with blue too (I guess?).

  • Frozen II (2019) Review

    November 22, 2019 by

    Wait until you can stream it… Another sequel snowed under the high quality of the original. The original Frozen was so memorable, in fact, that the sequel seems desperate to rehash elements, rather than remember to tell its own story. The songs and goofy humour have not melted away just yet, and the cast do… Read more

  • Retrospective Reviews: Watchmen (2009)

    November 16, 2019 by

    Watch this as soon as you can… With the release of HBO’s Watchmen series, there is no better time to take a retrospective look at Zack Snyder’s Watchmen from 2009. Adapted from Alan Moore’s DC Vertigo graphic novel of the same name, there is a lot to like about this film. It is not your… Read more

  • The Good Liar (2019) Review

    November 15, 2019 by

    Wait until you can stream it… The opening credits aptly summarises the film. The credits are typed on a loud typewriter. It sounds as tired as it is cliched. Yet, it looks good. The lighting is striped and slanted. It looks like a street lamp illuminating a wall on a dark street. It looks good,… Read more

  • The Aeronauts (2019) Review

    November 8, 2019 by

    Watch this as soon as you can… The Aeronauts, from Amazon Studios, realises journeys into the sky are a double edged sword. There is a lot to stare at in wonder, but it is also a trip filled with risk. Both sides are captured to great effect, creating an entertaining film with a strong lead… Read more

  • Doctor Sleep (2019) Review

    November 1, 2019 by

    Watch this as soon as you can… Doctor Sleep was created under two shadows. Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, and Stephen King‘s two novels (sharing titles with the films) are both adored and considered classics. It would be easy for this new film by Mike Flanagan to get overshadowed by such cultural touchstones. At some points,… Read more

  • Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Review

    October 24, 2019 by

    Watch this as soon as you can… Unlike a machine, this film series was starting to get a little tired. Rise of the Machines, Salvation, and Genisys were all lacklustre and forgettable in comparison to the gems that came before it. As a result, no one was that excited when Terminator: Dark Fate was announced.… Read more

  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Trailers (My Thoughts)

    October 22, 2019 by

    Recently, I have been rewatching all the Star Wars movies in chronological order, including all the films outside all the main nine episodes. With the release of a new trailer, and a trailer from a couple of months ago, for the closing episode of the entire saga, I should feel more excited. Sadly, I don’t.… Read more
