    Tetsuo: The Iron Man
    (1989) Dir. Shinya Tsukamoto


    7/10 - wtaf did I just witness?! From a technical and stylistic standpoint it’s a must-see. It’s a pretty hardcore sci-fi body horror that is a unique experience let’s just say, but will unlikely watch again. The soundtrack and visuals are unquestionably a perfect marriage.

    Ikiru
    (1952) Dir. Akira Kurosawa


    9/10 - very moving masterpiece from Kurosawa (I may even call Ikiru my favourite Kurosawa film now). One of those life-affirming films that’ll make you think about making the most of your time on Earth (to truly ‘live’, as the film title translates to). The first half of the film sets up the tragic life of the character, followed by the emotional payoff through flashbacks in the second half, that is utterly devastating and beautiful.

    Great cast, dull, overlong film. What could have been a sprawling epic depicting the birth and growth of the CIA was actually a fragmented mess.

    Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives
    (2010) Dir. Apichatpong Weerasethakul


    7/10 - wow, this was different ...not much a film but a spiritual experience! :laugh: Loved the tone and atmosphere of the film, dealing with heavy themes like death, reincarnation and memories with a surreal paintbrush. I feel like if I knew more about Thai history I would appreciate this movie even more.

    Been on an Avengers rewatch binge on Disney+ recently to bridge the gap between WandaVision episodes.

    The Avengers - 8/10
    Avengers Age of Ultron - 6/10. Best thing about this is Scarlet Witch, otherwise it's one of the weaker MCU movies imo.
    Civil War - 8.5/10.
    Infinity War 9/10.

    Onto Endgame tomorrow.

    MCU is perfect popcorn films for me, the films also do a remarkable job of making you invest and care for the characters. Lots of lump in the throat moments. But I guess sticking with them for over 12 years will do that.

    Just saw boss level and it was entertaining. A really fast paced action thriller time loop movie

    Guardians of the Galaxy - 8/10

    I’m not into the whole marvel universe but I enjoyed this. Great soundtrack and fun characters

    Sully - 8/10

    I obviously knew the general story of landing the plane on the Hudson, but it was great to see it play out on screen and actually I’d completely forgotten that every single person survived. Tom Hanks is always great

    Do the Right Thing
    (1989) Dir. Spike Lee


    8/10 - Fight the power! An incredibly relevant film 30 years later: in this film, racial tensions rise to boiling point on a sizzling day in Brooklyn... mirroring recent events from our era: the killing of George Floyd, the riots and the Black Lives Matter movement. Some of the humour and acting may appear overly theatrical, but the serious undertones, iconic soundtrack, poetic dialogue and violent climax make it a stand-out film historically.

    The Lighthouse
    (2019) Dir. Robert Eggers


    8/10 - stylistically a very confident film from Robert Eggers: the score, cinematography, imagery and editing are both striking and haunting. Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson's performances are electrifying. There are many dreamlike and intense scenes surrounding concepts of guilt, frustration/repression and identity that weirdly gave me similar thematic vibes of David Fincher's Fight Club. Can't wait to watch Eggers' 'The Witch' next.

    Super 8.

    1st half hour seemed really familiar, then realised I had started watching it pissed one night and must have fell asleep :laugh:

    Enjoyable creature feature, nothing new but very good.

    Upgrade is a good movie. I watched it because I saw it on a few underrated movies sights and wasn't disappointed. Was done on a budget of something like 3 million and had that real 80s feel to it which is a good thing

    I Care A Lot.

    I only watched this because Ros Pyke is in it. Kinda wish I hadn't bothered.
    She plays a woman who rips old people off by becoming their legal guardian and then stripping them of all their assets whilst in her care in a home. But it appears she's bitten off more than she can chew when she tries it on with an old lady with ties to the Mafia.
    It gets ridiculous.

    Zero Dark Thirty
    (2012) Dir. Kathryn Bigelow


    8/10 - finally got round to seeing this big hit from 2012. A top rate thriller/drama chronicling the hunt for Osama bin Laden. Jessica Chastain's performance was excellent here, a moving portrayal of dedication and determination, amidst the brutality and unpredictability of terrorism, and the apathy/impatience of the political figures. I can see why Chastain was nominated for Best Actress by the Academy. The execution of the famous raid on Osama's compound had me transfixed. A solid closer to a film that was building in suspense and frustration throughout.
