Review – Annihilation

Annihilation, written and directed by Alex Garland, had a hypnotic effect on me. I was pulled into this film and enveloped by everything it was giving to me. The experience only deepened as it went on and I became more and more consumed by the film and its questions, its main character, it’s… everything. I haven’t had an experience like it in some time. It’s difficult to explain. I may struggle to talk coherently about, Annihilation but I’m going to try. Let’s get to the review. Read more

Review – Morgan

Morgan

Morgan, directed by Luke Scott, is a film that is wholly unoriginal, and worse, completely predictable. This is a film that does nothing new and has nothing unique or interesting to say.

Let’s get this review on the move, and break down a film that leaves no discernible trace. Read more

Review – Anomalisa

Anomalisa

Anomalisa, directed by Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson is perhaps the most human film. This is a film that digs deep down into the little broken idiosyncrasies of a person and then pulls them all out and puts them on show. I haven’t experienced a film like Anomalisa before and what makes it all the more interesting is that it is a stop motion animated film with very much its own look and style. Anomalisa planted itself firmly in my memory, and I think it’s going to stay there for a while. Read more

Review – The Hateful Eight

The Hateful Eight

The Hateful Eight, directed by Quentin Tarantino, is a film that as always, comes filled with the rich and engrossing dialogue that is now anticipated by many a film fan (and even a general everyday viewer).

It’s difficult to explain right now, but there just feels like there’s an element (something greater) missing from The Hateful Eight. Read more
