When has Mat ever steered us wrong?
Welcome to the Third Edition of my Top 10 movies of the year. It was actually quite tough to come up with a Top 10. I have been to the cinema a fair few times this year, but was very disappointed in many well hyped films (It Chapter Two, I’m looking at you), but thanks to streaming, I was able to see some films that I was unable to see at the cinema – so here we go!!
Here's the weirdest films of the year, dudes!
Did you miss me bitches!?
Probably not, but I feel like I need to explain why I haven't been putting up new reviews on the site lately. Well, Dan and I left our life in London behind and started a new one of travel, joblessness and focussing on our passions. So while Dan is mostly working on RR, I still do stuff behind the scenes here, but I'm mainly trying to kickstart my career as a professional translator - not as easy as it sounds.
But I couldn't pass up on the opportunity of sharing with you my fave WTF flicks of 2019, so here they are...
The horror comedy that has it all: ghosts, pizza, witches, a werewolf, murder and is produced by A24.
It’s December and in the next few weeks I decided to review a few movies that came out earlier in the year that I didn’t have the time to watch or to write about before and I also feel didn’t get, for one reason or another, half the recognition they deserve. Today I want to bring to your attention Slice, that was barely talked about anywhere… is it just because it was an indie movie? I would have thought the all-star cast would have attracted more people. This horror-com has serious potential of becoming a cult classic. I think Slice got forgotten about pretty quickly and even if it won’t win any film of the year awards, it sure is worth spending an hour and a half of your time.
This review has a strong language warning, just like the film.
Let’s start this by saying right off the bat, Deadpool 2is the summer blockbuster of the motherfucking year. You might have heard it’s better than the original? It’s true. Believe it or not, this sequel has it all: humour, touching moments, a cool as fuck soundtrack, great fight scenes and some actually half decent CGI. I’m going to try and not drop any spoilers below, but ye been warned!
I love the theatre but sadly I don’t go nowhere near enough. I've enjoyed every time I've gone to see a show, some more, like The Book of Mormon or The Lion King, some a little less like Dreamgirls. Only one bored me shitless so far: The Phantom of the Opera - I know, it’s not something you hear everyday, but my brain is wired different.
Regardless of my level of fondness for a show, there is always something special about the whole experience. The performers singing, dancing, acting and interacting with the audience, the way they draw you in. It’s no surprise big Hollywood stars that started on Broadway say they prefer it over filming a movie. It’s safe to say Young Frankenstein is one of the shows I had fun with the most.
