10 best films of 2015

Phew. That was tough. It has been coming for a long time so I’m extremely excited to share my list with you, feel free to offer your comments🙂 There’s always something special, a sort of child-like excitement that comes along with reviewing the whole year in film, and giving special praise to the ones that…

The Childhood Of A Leader; Interesting,obscure but lacking.

One could go about analyzing all the different aspects of The Childhood Of A Leader and find yourself as clueless as before. The moody atmosphere sets up the story but the story is evidently lacking. Brady Corbet uses instances of mischief and tantrums to justify his point…his point being that such uncontrolled behavioural problems are…

Wiener-Dog review:The abundance of one

Wiener-Dog is Todd Solondz’s odd creation. It bears little resemblance to anything I’ve ever seen,it’s as if it was made entirely for the love of art and art itself. On the surface, it’s an anthology film with 4 distinctly different stories all connected by the character’s respective ownership of a wiener-dog. At first, Wiener-dog seems…

Nocturnal Animals trailer

It’s now 1AM over here; How apt😉 But I hope I don’t become a nocturnal animal like these crazies in the trailer. There is some intense shi* cooking up here that I’m so excited for. Nocturnal Animals has been on my radar ever since the start of 2016. But judging from the trailer alone,it has…

Captain Fantastic; Power to the people,stick it to the man.

Captain Fantastic sounds like the next big superhero film to hit mainstream cinema. I can assure you its more indie than red underpants and superpowers…although in a sense…it is a heroic film. It’s a sort of feel good film about oddballs having to confront the perceived banalities of suburban life and superficial social norms. Matt…

Jazzy Sunday

Hey guys! How’s your weekend been? I just thought I’d share some jazz soundtracks with ya’ll that I’ve been listening to this past week. It’s a perfect mix of soulful sounds and chill vibes. So wrap yourself up in sheets, have a tea beside that dim linoleum lamp, and soak in the music of angels….

Pete’s Dragon; Something different this way comes

Pete’s Dragon is Disney’s awesome new film that has in abundance, the breath of fire and emotion that it’s counterpart, The BFG, lacked. The opening 5 to 7 minutes is exceptionally beautiful. We’re led into Pete’s story and his character crises hits us so early its honestly quite a surprise. Openings aren’t usually this attuned…

Weekend post: Driving, dreamwave and the iphone 7.

So basically I passed my driving test yesterday. And I must say I was pretty surprised given that I always made mistakes during practical lessons that would have given me immediate fails. Failing to stop completely at stop-lines, striking kerbs, sometimes going into the wrong lane etc. I also went against my instructors advice of…

Don’t Breathe; A play on your senses

Don’t Breathe is the exact kind of film that horror fans will love. But it’s not horror. And it’s the kind of film that folks who just want a good time would enjoy as well. With a stunning soundtrack completely composed with household objects, this contained drama is as original horror house as you’re gonna…

400 followers + Liebster Award!

Thanks Alicja for nominating me for the Liebster Award for the second time! You just…honestly ROCK!! Wow this is huge🙂 I wanted to save this for a special blog post so I thought why not put along with the 400 followers checkmark. Check out her site here where she pours her heart out into movie…

Train To Busan; Finally, a zombie film about humans

Train To Busan is the closest zombie film to date I’ve seen that transcends beyond the post-apocalyptic zombie genre. Finally. This one moves beyond the living and the undead to expose humankind’s nature;It examines the human condition in ways both rotten and redeeming. It bears little semblance to Bong Joon-Ho’s Snowpiercer. It is markedly less…

My favourite movie scenes (Spoiler alert)

So here it is! As promised, here are a few of my favourite movie scenes. There’s just so many great ones of there so I’m sure I missed out a few. Some were nice but didn’t make it because it just didn’t hit hard enough for me. I wanted to keep my list short, so…
