The Oscars are on today!

I don’t know why people have to say negative things about award shows, particularly when their favourite actor or actress doesn’t win. Are the Oscar’s and other award shows rigged just because Sebastian Stan (as an example) wasn’t nominated? Who knows, but that’s no reason to be angry about it.

I actually felt bad for being excited for the Golden Globes because of stuff I read on social media. It’ll be interesting to see what happens. I’ll be watching and reading attentively.

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.

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 ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Velvet Buzzsaw Movie Review – Watched 02/03/2019

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.
