in one word, what would it be?
“On the Basis of Sex” tells a story of strength and perseverance. This film is one that you will not want to miss! ★Now playing at Terrace Theater★
Children of Men (2006). Another outstanding feature from Alfonso Cuarón. My one nitpick with this film is that some of the dialogue near the beginning of the film feels a little too exposition-heavy, although the rest of this film is anything but. If I really force myself to over-evaluate it, I can think of a couple of conveniences in the story that are mostly made believable by the presentation. Apart from those small issues, this film is a monumentally impressive piece of filmmaking. Children of Men is one of the best-helmed auteurist films of all time in my opinion. This is a science-fiction film that, quite simply, feels real. The dystopian universe of this film is just a slightly exaggerated version of modern society: the presence of futuristic technology is minimal and restrained, the refugee crisis and the sense of squalor and unemployment is heightened, and many parts of the world are simply unsalvageable, war-torn craters that test human perseverance. The amount of intelligent subtext and detail infused into the set design and locations in the film is staggering — the more you pay attention to the backdrop, the more you understand about this universe. This kind of particularity in its presentation really sells the notion that the universe of this film is real. The handheld camerawork alone is enough reason to watch this film — the cinematography is breathtakingly meticulous and claustrophobic and adds so much personality to the film. There are at least a few ten-minute plus long takes in this film and all of them are insanely co-ordinated, with seemingly hundreds of extras carrying these actions out. And as if this weren’t impressive enough, many of these long takes are dedicated to some of the most gut-wrenchingly raw and authentic action sequences ever put to film. The violence is incredibly visceral and believable, and there is always the sense that the characters are in actual danger. Although there are individually powerful moments and scenes littered throughout, this entire film is essentially building up to one of the most emotionally powerful third-acts I've ever seen in a film. 9/10.
The first cut of Glass was a whopping three hours and twenty minutes! M. Night Shyamalan cut the film down to 129 minutes for the big screen. ★Now playing at Terrace Theater★

You can't choose family. Or can you?
Redefine family in the critically acclaimed film Shoplifters. Now Playing at the Sie FilmCenter.
My pick for best movie in 2018. My type of film - reminds me early films of Inarritu, Edward Yang, with a little bit of Bela Tarr. Long take. Glommy atmosphere. It's a shame that this is the only film from the director. #movie #film #bestof2018 #filmoftheyear #rip #gonetoosoon
What a wonderful picture. @vickykaushal09
Has done a very excellent role in playing a paramilitary officer + a mission head commander. Really he has given all of his potential to fulfill the requirement of a young and energetic officers.
The direction of mr @adityadharfilms

"Watching “Shoplifters” is understanding the pervasive power of love." - Wall Street Journal
Let’s talk about the best film of 2018... Spoilers. As always.
The plot of Spiderverse follows its comic book counterpart fairly closely. The story follows a young Miles Morales as he gets spider powers, watches his Spider-Man die, and ends up teaming up with a different Spider-Man (Peter Parker) from a different universe. The new Peter wants to get back to his universe and Miles tries to help him. That’s a very basic overview.
In a very simplistic view that doesn’t sound too bad. It’s adventurous and enjoyable. But Spiderverse is more than a happy go lucky coming of age John Hughes style movie. We do see Miles start to grow up and deal with things most kids do like new schools and parents who don’t understand.
But it goes farther.
Miles watches his hero, Spider-Man, get ruthlessly murdered by the most foreboding version of Kingpin ever to grace the screen (sorry Daredevil fans). This is not long after Miles discovers he too has spider powers. Miles goes to the one person he think can help in his time of grief, his uncle Arron. But quickly Miles learns his uncle is an assassin and criminal, the Prowler! The betrayal is shocking and disturbing for even the viewer. Miles ends up accidentally teaming up with five other Spider-People from different worlds to not only stop Kingpin but return each Spider-Person to their world.
Throughout the adventure we are given an amazing soundtrack to listen to. I’m not much of a rap fan but the way the music fits the plot so well, is fantastic. Every song is written and tailored for the movie and its plot.
An incredible story and amazing music aside something else stands out. The art. The style or more accurately styles are astonishing. Each different Spider-Person has their own unique art style that comes off as beautiful and well done. It’s not garish or extremely contradictory. It’s unique and extremely well thought out.
In the end Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse was the best film of 2018 and definitely deserves my rating of
15/10 🔥🔥🔥 I’ll see you geeks and nerds later!

As much as a Marvel fan I am, to put Avengers: Infinity War at No. 1 spot, it would have been if I had not come across this.
Lynne Ramsay makes movies on rare occasions, out of passion and when she does it is worth it.
Lynne Ramsay’s directing and Joaquin Phoenix’s acting give a first hand experience at psychological struggle and PTSD.
An underrated yet stunning visual and brutal tale about redemption, it is The Film of 2018

109th and FINAL #FilmOfTheYear
of 2018! Bumblebee. 🐝🤖🚖 A good origin story and I think I definitely agree with others about it being the best one yet in the series, some great action scenes and good performances too...and the 3D was excellent as well, not just things jumping out at you, but the depth in certain scenes looked great! 👓👍🏻
, Holmes & Watson. 🔎🕵️🏻♂️🔍 Wow...this just fell flat, not good at all, I'm usually a big fan of Will Ferrell movies but this just wasn't good in any way, a couple of cheap laughs and that's about it! 🙁👎🏻
VICE is now playing and trust us, it's worth the hype.
My no.1 film of 2018 (released this February in UK) is:
If Beale Street Could Talk (dir. Barry Jenkins)
From the remarkable Barry Jenkins, writer/director of the Best Picture-Winning ‘Moonlight’, comes his adaptation of the titular novel by the trailblazing, leading literary voice of the civil rights movement, James Baldwin.
Set in 1970s Harlem, Tish (Kiki Layne) becomes pregnant as her fiancé, Fonny (Stephan James), is wrongly convicted of rape due to the machinations of a racist cop. Tish’s family and community come together to support her and try to prove Fonny’s innocence so that they can bring their child up in a loving, family home.
Love isn’t merely a theme in this film, love flows between almost every character and scene - between two people, their family, their community and their differences. This film (and book) has a beautiful admiration for a community of different individuals and families - undoing the notion white culture often expends that African Americans are one and the same. Each character here gets a role of development and importance.
From the very first frame this film exudes cinematic maturity and understanding. Images translated from words to communicate warmth, empathy and beauty in every inch of the frame. Cinematographer, James Laxton, who also shot ‘Moonlight’, is clearly a master of the form and I have rarely seen people look so exquisitely gorgeous on screen. The design and production combine with the lighting, framing and lensing to perfectly shape the world and fill Jenkins’ shots with atmosphere, texture and a filmic look that couldn’t be captured on any other format.
The score is undeniably graceful, yet melancholic and simple - the strings cut through your heart to bring an overwhelming weight of emotion as you reminisce through Tish and Fonny’s lives growing closer.
Don’t go in expecting the sheer emotion of ‘Moonlight’ - this is a very different beast. There is so much love and warmth for the characters, relationships, settings and drama. It comments on institutional racism, but is also there to remind us of the affection and devotion that runs between us. Another masterful and different work from Jenkins.
"In this beautifully felt family drama, the Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda dives into the mess with a story about a household on the ragged edge." - The New York Times.
THE FAVOURITE is a MUST SEE FILM! Yes it’s that good!
I thought “ Oh God another costume drama!” BUT it’s brilliant, clever, very funny, sad, sexy ( who knew, I certainly didn’t!) Two things though it has some really annoying music and I wasn’t sure about the ending. Olivia Colman, Rachel Weiss and Emma Stone give award winning performances and Nicholas Hoult as a rouged up Whig is a hoot! Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos the chap who directed The Lobster so you just know this is gonna be a little bit “ out there” and it is. Unmissable, it’s that good!

What a way to start 2019,- by looking back on my favourite film of 2018.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is a movie I'd consider to be a bit of a well needed groundbreaker. With the MCU and DCEU churning out superhero flicks what feels like every other, it can be pretty easy to fall into the 'superhero fatigue' which is clearly visible in both fans and critics. However if there was another origin film I felt we didn't need, it was for Spider-Man. Having three different versions of the character ( Tobey McGuire, Andrew Garfield, Tom Holland ) with currently six solo films in under 20 years is more than enough, right?
Wrong. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is exactly what the character needed. Paying enough homage to the classics to make you smile, but new enough to make you sit in awe at as if you haven't seen it before. Whilst this is by no means Spidey's first animated form, it is the debut of the glorious animation style by Sony Animation. I say style, its should really be 'styles', as each individual Spider-Man has their own themes and styles ripped straight out of the comic books. I can't blame Sony for trying to patent the animation style and method as it is truly one of a kind. Everything about this film is brilliant, from the score, acting, comedy, a serious moments with characters that are actually surprisingly relatable - Peter B Parker was the most relatable for me, though for others it was Gwen and Miles. Everything about this film seems natural, not forced and about as realistic as a film with dimension hoping and pigs with spider powers can be, and it leaves you wanting more in all the right ways.
If you haven't seen it yet, I only have one question. Are you okay?

Film of the Year 2018 - Bohemian Rhapsody
What a year for film 2018 was! On a personal level, I made full use of my Odeon Limitless card this year and made 52 trips to the cinema, and saw over 40 different movies, a new personal best! Picking a top 10 this year was incredibly difficult, with Avengers: Infinity War setting a new bar for ensemble superhero movies, Mission Impossible yet again showing the absolute limits of stuntwork, and Star Wars making a triumphant return with the delightful Solo.
However this year, my film of the year goes to Bohemian Rhapsody. While every single one in my top 10 made me leave the cinema with great memories, Bohemian Rhapsody was 2 hours of just pure enjoyment. While it may not be the most historically accurate biopic you'll ever see, there's an infectious joy that this movie brings, be it the music, the cast or just seeing a man doing what he loves. And that final half hour - from a crushing low to one of my all-time cinematic high points in the form of the Live Aid performance. Absolute perfection. -----
1) Bohemian Rhapsody
2) Avengers: Infinity War
3) Darkest Hour
4) Solo: A Star Wars Story
5) Ready Player One
6) Teen Titans GO! To The Movies
7) Mission Impossible: Fallout
8) Bad Times at the El Royale
9) Ant-Man and the Wasp

What a mad fucking year. Plenty happened in 2018, amazing and bad and all around madness ensued. We lost pets and family, we moved city, I listened to 1001 albums you must hear before you die, and was Forest Bros for a bit, all equally important as you could probably guess.
Drinks wise the best hands down was @olivers_cider
The Mayflower, a completely new take on cider from a maker who seems to be making liquids exclusively for me. Music wise, @daughters.official
You Won’t Get What You Want is my album of the year, a panic attack made audio that never lets up. By the time the close comes, the lyrics are begging, and it’s probably one of the most intense musical experiences I’ve heard. And finally, two films win out this year, Hereditary & Annihilation. Both twisted and turned slowly, and had scenes that I won’t be forgetting in a long time, with a bear and a peanut allergy causing more stress than I ever thought imaginable in film!
Best person is @mysexualpreferenceisnotyou
, for just being the most beautiful wild one, who never says no to animals, and takes us to higher places than I would go alone. Good job I married the best!👌 Fuck 2018.

My top (12) movies from 2018. [Swipe] :
Honorable mentions: "Ant-Man & Wasp," "Ready Player One," "BlacKkKlansman," "Mandy," "Ballard of Buster Scruggs," "A Quiet Place," "Love, Simon," "Searching," and "Mission Impossible: Fallout." Biggest surprise was Aquaman. Biggest letdown was Solo, Jurassic World, and Predator. Looking to 2019. Happy New year. :
