    I've read impressions from people who genuinely loved it so if you're interested it's still probably worth giving it a shot. It's nothing like Hereditary or Midsommar though, it's basically a very silly dark comedy with occasional anxiety inducing bits. I'd never watch it again but it's one of...

    Beau is Bullshit more like. This is exactly what happens when an acclaimed auteur gets given a big budget and completely free reign to put out a self-indulgent three hour long stream of consciousness. I did enjoy the first 45 minutes or so a lot but then I just kind of lost interest until the...

    Disney

    Yeah, this is the video. It's fascinating, I love seeing Benson trying to make practical sense of some of the cryptic direction she's being given but overall it's very clear the direction is to keep stripping it further and further back. And they even end up shrouding the recording booth in...

    RuPaul's Drag Race *SPOILERS*

    They always seem to place the girl group and design challenges really early on in an All Stars season which is a shame for the comedy queens who bomb out on those challenges before getting to snatch game or roast challenges which always seem to come later on now. All Stars 2 had the right idea...

    There's absolutely no question Bailey is an incredible singer technically but I feel like she oversings parts of it. Part of the beauty of the original is that it is for the most part intimate, pretty stripped back and confessional. Almost talk-singing for much of the duration but dense with...

    Texas - Hi + General Discussion

    The Day Before I Went Away from The Hush and Telephone X from Careful What You Wish For are two of my favourite album tracks. The latter is daft Blondie pastiche but probably stands out all the more for appearing on such a rubbish album.

    RuPaul's Drag Race (AS9)

    I don't really understand it either, loads of drag queens make having enormous, or at least oversized breasts, a big part of their look. Jimbo takes it to the cartoonishly extreme but I don't see how it's mocking women any more than many, many other aspects of drag which is often, though...

    RAYE

    The remix makes the song noticeably worse, it's much better just all Raye. A boot.

    RuPaul's Drag Race *SPOILERS*

    If they can still have Jinkx beat Monet after that Swish Swish lipsync then they can crown anyone after the final lipsync at this point. Just dub in Ru saying it's also based on series performance, cut the lipsync to shreds and boom. Jimbo seems pretty nailed on to win this to me. Ru clearly...

    RuPaul's Drag Race (AS9)

    Jimbo is incredible and deserves a better global platform than the festering shitshow that was UK Vs the World. At this point I don't care who appears on what franchise. There's no rhyme or reason to who appears on Vs the World or Global All Stars or a regular All Stars anymore, may as well...

    Resident Evil

    Remaking Resident Evil 5 is asking for trouble. It was controversial even when it was released, it would cause a shitstorm nowadays unless they make dramatic overhauls to nearly everything. You can't put out a game in 2023 where a white American guy heads to a poor African village full of feral...

    The Apprentice UK - Series 17 (2023) | "Generic worm"

    I saw the clip before it was taken down and it was extremely funny/awkward but again sadly indicative of how literally everything about the show these days is about embarrassing the contestants as much as possible even if it's just them switching teams.

    Oscar Bait 2022 - 2023

    I can see the logic for not including Titanic because Leo and Kate are equal leads. Chicago is indisputably a female lead, surely? No way does Billy Flynn's character have the same prominence as Roxie Hart in the movie. I'd argue the same for Silence of the Lambs too when comparing screentime.

    The Last of Us (HBO)

    The final scene is exactly how it ends in the game. The quick cut after Ellie says 'ok' is entirely intentional. It leaves the viewer to contemplate what the lie and Ellie's reaction to the lie means for Joel and Ellie's relationship in the future, which is after all the beating heart of the...

    The Last of Us (HBO)

    Yes, the ending to Part 1 feels very complete to the point where I think a lot of people felt satisfied with the prospect of there never being a Part 2 and the story just ending on that bittersweet note of ambiguity. Not for the first time, however, I urge anyone who hasn't played the games to...

    Scream 7 *SPOILERS*

    Yeah, I mean I wasn't blown away by 6 but it's a solid movie and there's no way it's weaker than 3 or 4. Subject to change rankings as I've still only seen 5 and 6 once 1>2>5=6>4>3

    Scream 7 *SPOILERS*

    Just saw 6. I liked it but didn't love it. Overall I'd say it's swings and roundabouts as to whether this or 5 is better. I had heard rumblings that the opening in this was the best since 1 which is pure slander on Scream 2's good name. The iconic cinema opening remains thoroughly unbothered...

    Oscar Bait 2022 - 2023

    It's a week since I saw Close and I have thought about it every day since and it still upsets me. Genuinely not sure a movie has ever done that to me. I think it's struck a particularly personal chord thematically which perhaps I'll elaborate on at some point.

    The Last of Us (HBO)

    Have faith. The game's ending is pretty damn revered. If the show sticks to it (and there is really absolutely no reason to believe it won't at this point) it should be a great finale that will spark lots of discussion amongst newcomers.

    The Scream Franchise

    Watching the cast of Scream 3 desperately trying to ham it up and make reading print-outs from a fax machine seem exciting will forever be the low point of the series.
