Movies We Adored

  • I’ve been waiting for Dunkirk for over a year. Literally. Just a few weeks ago Facebook reminded me of this fact by showing me an update from July 2016: I was gushing over the filming of the movie taking place in Dorset, England… and I wanted to be…

  • There are a lot of things about films that I pay attention to, so many more aspects and details I think about that I never paid attention to in my 20’s. After seeing thousands of films, working as a still photographer on set and visiting several big productions on…

  • I’ve never understood jazz. I can appreciate the skill of the players, the precision and the dedication, but I never really got anything out of the music itself. It doesn’t move me here or there, it’s just… kind of there. (The same way I can appreciate sushi: I’m…

  • Last night, I walked into the movie theatre fully aware of what happened to Alan Turing in the end, so I was prepared to shed a tear or two. Little did I know, I’d walk out heartbroken, reminded of my years of being bullied at school. Since I take pride…

  • Tonight, I went on a blind date with a movie. In other words I took a risk by not watching the trailer or reading anything about it beforehand. I did know about the stunning cast, so I figured I’d probably enjoy it, no matter what it’s about. And boy, did…

  • Rarely, when the expectations are very high, you’ll get what you expect and paid for. This time it all turned out swell and fine. (The following is 100% plot spoiler free, but it does mention some feels & character details.) Guardians of the Galaxy is a bubbly, happy…

  • “You don’t trust God when it comes to concrete.” Let’s just get this out of the way: Tom Hardy is just mind-blowingly talented. I’ve seen almost all of the movies he’s ever been in so I don’t have any doubts when it comes to his talent, but it’s this kind of awakening…

  • CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Director: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo Release date: 26 March 2014 (UK) Well, wasn’t this as much fun as a barrel of superhero costumed, extremely agile monkeys! I used the word “agile” here because man, this dude can move. I could watch his running around, crashing through…

  • NOAH Director: Darren Aronofsky Release date: 4 April 2014 (UK) “No matter what you’re expecting, I’m sure this movie is gonna surprise you,” said Russell just seconds before Noah came on screen in Cineworld Cardiff at the Welsh premiere of Noah on March 29th. I really couldn’t put it better myself. He…

  • Director: Wes Anderson Release date: 7 March 2014 (UK) A few words: Extremely entertaining. Greatly giggleworthy. Incredibly inspiring. A movie with wonderful cinematography and brilliant characters and actors playing those characters, as often is the case with Anderson’s movies. The whole movie doesn’t make much sense, not really, but it’s definitely…

  • ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE Director: Jim Jarmusch Release date: 21 February 2014 (UK) Where we saw it: London Film Festival, Oct 19th A few words: Beautiful, dark, romantic, funny. Amazing, quirky performances by a very talented cast. A must-see-again. If you’re expecting something hollywood-y, you’re not getting it. Other thoughts: We…

  • 12 YEARS A SLAVE Director: Steve McQueen Release date: 24 January 2014 (UK) Where we saw it: London Film Festival, Oct 18th A few words: It’s not an easy watch. It’s cruel, it’s violent and it will shock you. But underneath the surface there’s the glimmer of hope and the…
