Spider-Man: Into The Spider-verse is a world without end

"Every once in a while, something comes along that opens your eyes to a new way of viewing cinema. Star Wars did this for me first back when I was 6 years old. Goodfellas did it in 1991. Now we have this...a comic book cartoon movie."

I don’t have a vote (and no longer care) for the Oscars – Movies of the Year

"It's tough to stay interested in watching most blowhards take credit for their work by slandering those who they disagree with, but the desire to see good work rewarded will not get old.

Darkest Hour (****) is the other side of Dunkirk

Wright has made a film that plays a good contrast to Christopher Nolan's superior Dunkirk. We see the threat that looms at home before it strikes abroad. So much is at stake, the tension is unbearable, yet Churchill finds a way. Good Lord does he ever.
