    Playmobil: The Movie

    Exactly what everyone expected The Lego Movie to be from the trailers. Trash.

    1917

    ★★★½

    Got milk?

    A fairly simple ‘boots on the ground’ WW1 story elevated by exceptional blocking, (Deakins) camerawork, set design and overall polish. Sags a little in the last third and the music can be too schmaltzy at times (a problem I’ve had with Thomas Newman in the past). Overall I’d say it’s worth a watch, it’s a grounded perspective that helps give a feel for how ruthless and terrifying the conflict was.

    The Animatrix

    Actually really good. Animation is (mostly) stunning and the world building is genuinely fascinating. Great companion piece to the first movie. Some very creepy concepts in here that kept me thinking in the same way the original movie does. Worth a watch.

    $150,000,000 B-Movie. Absolute trash, hilarious though.

    Fantastic start to a cinematic universe :D

  • The Death of Dick Long

    The Death of Dick Long

    A surprisingly disturbing story with some genuinely hilarious moments and mostly great performances, it loses steam after the hour mark but it's still entertaining the entire way through. Very inspired by the Coen brothers but unfortunately never quite reaches the same heights. I particularly liked the dialogue here and most of the characters are suitably memorable for their distinct idiosyncrasies. Worth a watch. A24 continues to release some of the weirdest and most interesting films around.

    Breathtaking animation and character design. Really enjoyed this despite some bizarre music choices and a pretty familiar story. Lots of treasure planet in this movie too if that means anything to you. Shame the only way to get films like this is to make them Christmas themed and aimed for children.
