Burning first came on my radar after checking out one of two sites I often frequent for movie-related content. As soon as I saw that Steven Yuen was in it and that he was playing the antagonist, I was sold. I’ve been a fan of Steven Yuen since his Walking Dead days, and he’s gone onto bigger and brighter things since. One could say that leaving The Walking Dead was possibly the best thing he could have done and he is fantastic in this film. Continue reading → Movie Review: Burning – Watched 04/02/2019

Movie Update – I watched “Burning” last night

It’s probably the first time I’ve been able to watch a really slow-paced thriller and not fall asleep! And that is saying something because if a film doesn’t interest me early on, I get bored.

Burning was amazing! Review to come 😎

Xen made me, am I not beautiful?

I’ve seen a few reviews for this film talking about “satire” and using big words to say that they didn’t like this film. I’m probably in the last 10 per cent of people that really enjoyed this film, and I’m finding it hard to agree with the critics about it.

There are two main reasons for this. The first is that this film is a Dan Gilroy movie and he both wrote and directed this. And I’ve been a huge fan ever since his work on Nightcrawler which was a pretty intense experience for me. The first time I watched it, I was blown away by its brutality and boldness. Dan Gilroy is very good at delivering the content you can lose yourself in. The second reason is Jake Gyllenhaal. I think it’s fair to say that I’m a big fan. He’s an actor that I think is on the verge of doing something massive – and I am still a little bitter he got ignored entirely for his role as Louis Bloom in Nightcrawler, but anyway, back to Velvet Buzzsaw.

I, Tonya Movie Review – Watched 01/02/2019

Director: Craig Gillespie

Writer: Steven Rogers

Stars: Margot Robbie, Sebastian Stan, Allison Janney

Margot is one damn fine actress. I’m not going to lie, her acting in this film is off the chart good, better than her stint as Queen Elizabeth in Mary, Queen of Scots. This girl is going places. I would say the only thing letting Margot Robbie down is her looks. She’s too pretty to make ugly if you get what I mean.
