Jason goes to hell: 1 out of 5 stars
A film which was intended to be the final film of the franchise, for a 2nd time, also happens to be one of the worst films ever. I remember seeing this even as a kid and thinking “wow, this is garbage”, however it does have a few fun moments, but all in all unless you’re doing a marathon, this film is one that should be skipped.

This is a movie that smelled like a steaming pile of turd from miles away. The trailers leading up to the release of this Marvel-associated Sony flick did a horrendous job of convincing me that this would be anything other than a dumpster fire. Having survived two viewings of this, one in English and the other in French (don’t ask), I can definitively say that this movie is flat-out terrible, in the best way possible.
Venom sees Tom Hardy playing Eddie Brock, an investigative journalist trying to rebound from a major setback in his career. However, his plans are indefinitely halted when he’s overtaken by an alien symbiote, leaving him with superhuman strength, unrelenting hunger, and an unlikely ally.
I truly don’t understand what this movie is and how it was conceived of. It’s honestly miraculous. This is one of the worst movies I’ve seen this year, and yet I feel like I could watch it every day for the rest of my life. Ok, maybe not that frequent but you get the idea. A lot of that has to do with Tom Hardy and his undying dedication to whatever the hell he’s doing in this movie. It’s Nicholas Cage-level insanity. Additionally, the offbeat dynamic between Brock and Venom works so unexpectedly well that frankly it feels foreign inside of a movie where nothing seems to work, acting almost like a passenger in its own body, something Hardy sells perfectly with the Eddie Brock character.
The script felt like it was being written as they were shooting the movie. Lines of dialogue were painful to listen to, supporting characters were artificial cardboard cut-outs, and the movie felt like it was missing a third-act. Not that I needed anymore exhibitions of the “wonderful” visual effects, my God. Jet-black glob of goo fighting a greyish, jet black glob of goo… at nighttime; after a while I didn’t even know what I was looking at. One shot I actually enjoyed was this slowed-down, exquisitely grotesque portrait of the opposing symbiotes spreading their slime to engulf the two human hosts who’re submerged in the middle of it all. But that quickly grew old and I wanted the movie to be over. 🔻🔻🔻

Now Watching 🧛♂️ Dracula Untold
The dark knight rises is directed by Christopher Nolan and is the continuation of Batman’s story. This one takes place 8 years after the first film. Batman has been in hiding ever since he took the blame for Harvey Dents death but once a cat burglar (Anne Hathaway) and a Terrorist named Bane (Tom Hardy) force Batman out of exile he must get Into another life threatening battle to save Gotham. Nolan brings us another amazing Batman movie with another great villain and story. Bane was amazing in this film. Scary, strong, and menacing. I don’t think he’s better then the joker, but still a really good villain. Any scene he’s in was great. He even got to break Batman down and drop him all the way to 0 until Bruce Wayne got the strength and motivation back. Catwoman was also really good in this. Though shes not doing the right things you’re still on her side because her character is so likable. There’s so many scenes in this movie that glue your eyes to the screen and You don’t want to stop watching. The football stadium scene, all the cops fighting the people in the snow, Bane beating the crap out of Batman and even breaking his back. The movie for me did get a bit slow and I found it to be way too long but there’s really nothing you can take out of it. I don’t think this is better then The dark knight but it’s for sure a great continuation of the story and once Again, the villain steals the show in this. #batman #bane #dc #dceu #superheros #catwoman #gotham #cinema #movies #moviereview #film #filmjunkie #christianbale #tomhardy #annehathaway #morganfreeman #michealcane
First Man (2018):
Oh. My. God. I am speechless. This movie. THIS MOVIE 🙌🙌🙌 Damien Chazelle proves his genius once again and delivers us this masterpiece. It's been a long time since I've seen a really good movie like this one. So emotional and powerful. So visually pleasing 😍😍😍 Where do I even begin? Maybe with Ryan Gosling, who despite some criticism I read as to how much emotion he showed, I thought he was phenomenal. This is coming from someone who didn't particularly like Ryan Gosling before this movie. But here he really proves he can act. Even when his face was apparently still, he showed so much emotion and intensity. I could really feel his pain and doubt and regret and worry. Not to mention the crying scene in the beginning 😭😭😭 The performances of his co-stars were incredibly good as well 👏👏👏 I also thoroughly enjoyed the first man (haha, get it? 😅) perspective, it made me feel like I was actually in that spaceship. I actually felt my claustrophobia kicking in a bit, that's how good the shots and sound effects were. I felt the pressure and intensity of each moment at the fullest, so much that I felt drained at the end of the movie. Physically tired as if I went through all that. I also shed a tear during the scenes on the moon 🌚 No spoilers, but those who've seen it know which one in particular I mean. And I literally gasped when he said the famous words. Plus I read that some of the voices heard in the movie are actual recordings made during those times 🗣 Somehow I knew about the famous Neil Armstrong but I feel like I never really knew who the man Neil Armstrong was and this movie made just that. It brought to my attention the kind of man he was and how he was more than just the "first man". If you haven't seen this one yet, I urge you to see it in cinemas asap. It's a delight. ❤

Friday the 13th part 8: 3 out of 5 stars
One of my favourite films of the franchise and also possibly the cheesiest one, this film. Not much about this makes sense, it’s more of a slapstick horror than anything, how Jason dies is just confusing, the movie is called Jason Takes Manhattan, but only about 15 minutes are in NY, most of it is on a boat, yet for some reason I enjoy this movie a lot. I’d highly recommend giving it a shot, but it is terrible in the best ways.
And sadly it is over, ladies and gents! This year, I've been honoured to watch all of the 52 features I initially planned to see at the London Film Festival and write about a whole lot (more to come!) I've closed the fest off the West End at the Rich Mix with a lovely doc I Used To Be Normal: A Boyband Fangirl Story - it's just heartwarming, funny, far from condescending and such a good look into teen girls mad about the boy(bands) through four generations (The Beatles! Take That! Backstreet Boys! One Direction! Yeah, I know, I know, just trust me on this, okay?! 😂), I hope it gets distribution very soon.
Here are my highlights of the LFF:
✅ my adopted father-in-cinema Yorgos Lanthimos and The Favourite
✅ Wild Rose
✅ If Beale Street Could Talk
✅ Crystal Swan
✅ Sorry To Bother You
✅ Assassination Nation
✅ The Breaker Upperers
✅ The Hate U Give
✅ Asako I & II
✅ Madeline's Madeline
✅ In Fabric
✅ I Used To Be Normal (doc)
✅ Won't You Be My Neighbour? (doc)
It's been such a glorious time, I hope I'll be able to do it again next October! Now, I might need to have a lie-in tomorrow before I catch up on The First Man 😂

Halloween = (5/5)
As it got more violent, bloody and often times scarier than the 1978 Halloween, this new Halloween movie is a damn good movie that we all needed today since we have not gotten a top notch slasher, horror film in a while. Although the classic Halloween is probably still a better movie in a small degree, my expectations exceeded and I was completely satisfied in all levels. We all know that this movie won’t work without one of the best scream queens out there Jamie Lee Curtis, the word badass might be a little overused but we just can’t deny that she is one and I freaking love her. I have not seen all the Halloween films, I remember I hated all the Rob Zombie versions, I can’t remember watching the rest and I heard it’s bad, but man.. the tone, element, style of this new Halloween fully captured the one with the original. I get the goosebumps whenever I hear the score, it was so good, terrifying, nostalgic that you get the eerie feeling which makes it one of the best scores in a movie ever made. The introduction of this movie completely got me as well, hands down. Even when Michael Myers does not do anything, or maybe he’s just looking at you from a great distance with his heavy breathing, the frightening factor is there and it worked real good. As for the supporting cast, not a big fan honestly especially Judy Greer, although that isn’t an issue since the tension between Strode and Myers are what’s important which is just unbelievable. Definitely watching it again.
Starring: Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer & Nick Castle

Would I recommend? YES
La La Land - I love this movie. It's magical, colorful, gorgeous, dreamy and features beautiful locations in California 💜 I know a lot of the filming locations very well so I can reminiscing them by watching La La Land 🤗
I assume that this film attracts mainly people who are related to Los Angeles?! I've heard some people find La La Land awful, because they can not stand Hollywood / LA.
Since my heart is in California, it totally appeals to me and gives me pleasure. ❤
The story is about passion, dream chasing and fulfilling, dreams vs. reality, love and the true aspect of the showbiz in Hollywood.
La La Land is an Homage to the old Hollywood and a great lovestory about LA.
Director Damien Chazelle had put many years of work and love into this movie.
Only the end I can not understand and I think it's a shame. I would've like a slightly different ending. Why do you can't have both?
A dream job and a fulfilling relationship. It doesn't have to be a shallow happy end but what about the positive vibes?
Anyway... La La Land is a heck of a film that deserves a watch.
The soundtrack is amazing by the way. 💞
I'm the proud owner of the La La Land German Special Edition Blu ray with Soundtrack CD and posters 😍
“I will kill you when you are in the most pain. When you're in the most pain, shivering out of fear, then I will kill you. That's a real revenge. A real complete revenge.”
A Month of Horror - Entry #7
: I SAW THE DEVIL (dir. Kim Jee-woon, 2010)
This is a Korean serial killer-thriller epic that follows Kim Soo-hyeon, a trained secret agent, who makes it his life-goal to hunt the killer of his pregnant fiancé. First things first, this is not for the faint of heart; with a lengthy runtime, this emotionally punishing and demoralizing film never lets up in its intensity, housing a story that keeps the viewer both engaged and absolutely horrified. We bear witness to the protagonist slowly turning into the monster that he was trying to stop over the course of this grueling, masterpiece of a film.
With an ability for uncanny yet mesmeric visuals, incredibly thrilling action sequences, and a wicked sense of humor that plays with various genres, director Kim Jee-woon’s ‘I Saw the Devil’ has all the makings to be considered cinema’s ultimate revenge film. All the violence and gore is in service of the director’s artistic vision, accentuated by gorgeous cinematography and lighting that pull the viewer into the mind of both the agent and the killer, though the line between the two blurs more and more as the story unfolds for this is a movie about a man who must become the devil in order to defeat the devil.
Choi Min-sik, who many will recognize as the protagonist from ‘Oldboy’, another impressive slice of Korean cinema, was so convincing as the antagonist here that I’d sometimes forget I was watching a movie. He’s as unforgettable and frightening as any other horror movie villain there’s ever been because of how real Min-sik plays the role. On the other end, Lee Byung-hun delivers a heartbreaking performance as well as a terrifying one at times. He’s so consumed by pure vengeance, causing him to do unspeakable things, that by the end of the film you can’t help but cry for him. And it’s in this very moment you realize that you’ve yet to take a single breath since pressing 'play'.
Friday the 13th part 6: 2 out of 5 stars.
Jason Lives brings the series in a different direction, from here on out we deal with zombie Jason, jump boat loads of sharks, and really is more silly than scary. I know this is one of the most lost loved films of the franchise, but I just wasn’t a huge fan of it. Still worth the watch though.

Friday the 13th part 5: 2.5 out of 5 stars
A new beginning is one of those films that you question why it’s in the franchise, if you haven’t seen it yet here is a small spoiler warning ⚠️. As suggested by the title of this film, the one before it, and the one after, Jason is dead, this is just a copycat killer which oddly enough has a very similar motive to the original film. The movie still brings some good death scenes and isn’t a bad watch overall, so it’s worth the watch.
Friday the 13th part 4: 4 out of 5 stars
The Final Chapter, or at least that’s what it was intended to be. This film delivers in a way that would’ve been a great conclusion to the franchise. Still being fresh, not jumping the shark, just a fun and eerie slasher film. Definitely worth the watch up until this point in the franchise.

Friday the 13th part 3: 3 out of 5 stars
The 3rd instalment to this slasher franchise tries to make some quick cash on 3D fad. While I admit I’ve never actually seen this in 3D, you can tell what some of these scenes would’ve looked like with the glasses. All in all it still manages to bring a ton of fun and original deaths to the screen so I’d say give this a shot.
Call Me by Your Name (2017):
This was the second movie screening we organised during the Coming Out Week last week at my university. It was the first time I've ever seen the highly acclaimed movie and it did not dissapoint. However this film got recommended to me so much, by so many people who said it's the best movie ever and stuff like that that I did go in with really high expectations. And although they have been met and I enjoyed the film a lot, I didn't think it was so spectacular. I missed that wow factor that everybody seemed to be talking about. Nonetheless, I enjoyed seeing it, I though it was a beautiful portrayal of young love and an even nicer representation of homosexuality. Despite showing the love between two men, which is generally not viewed as being something beautiful but ridiculed or frowned upon, this movie really made it look so romantic , and true and sensual. It had a few emotional scenes and a few laughs and overall dominated by the hot Italian summer vibe, which was not exactly fitting with my autumn exams vibe. I am positive that if I rewatch this movie in summer I will enjoy it even more. The filming locations were mind-blowing and I hope I will get to see them in real life someday. Also, a shout-out to the amazing acting, everybody was just perfect for their characters. Flawed and beautiful ❤
Most memorable quote: "Have I spoken out of turn? Then I'll say one more thing. It'll clear the air. I may have come close, but I never had what you two have. Something always held me back or stood in the way. How you live your life is your business, just remember, our hearts and our bodies are given to us only once. And before you know it, your heart is worn out, and, as for your body, there comes a point when no one looks at it, much less wants to come near it. Right now, there's sorrow, pain. Don't kill it and with it the joy you've felt." (Elio's dad)
