im 2 years too late but ive just watched this and during the first half i was waiting for into be over but the second half grabbed me back in and the ending was beautiful. im not a fan of any musicals (bar dancer in the dark) so it was always gonna be a struggle for me to like it but the second half was a lot less musically and a lot more acting and depth which enjoyed. 7/10

Just watched A star is born. Great movie. Not really a fan of Lady Gaga, but there is no denying that she has incredible talent 👍

I, Daniel Blake:

Ken Loache provides an excellent commentary on how David Cameron's changes to the benefits system affected the state of Britain and the people in there trying to search for a good job.
Dan Blake is a very well-written character. He may get short-tempered and foul-mouthed at times, but there are scenes in which he genuinely shows he has a heart, such as his support for single mother Katie, who is struggling to look after her kids on a budget, and his bond with the two boys living next to him (I forgot their names, I think one of them is called Piper) who start selling trainers for 70 quid cheaper than the high street usually sells them for. Plus the way the benefits system treats Dan (minus Ann, who was supportive of him) makes me feel sorry for him.
The scene in which Dan spray paints his message "I, Daniel Blake, demand my appeal date before I starve" onto the walls of the job centres is, to me, one of the most iconic movie scenes of the decade due to how it shows that the state of today's politics affects the way we view not only other people or the media in general, but ourselves as well. I also got a laugh out of the passer-by swearing about Ian Duncan Smith and the Conservatives while Blake was getting arrested by the police for graffiti.
The film has little to no background music (except for the Vivaldi Four Seasons excerpt over Dan's phone in one part and a scene in which Dan plays a cassette for one of Katie's children). It symbolizes how if we don't have money or a job, there isn't any rhythm or a tune to keep us alive and going; we feel downbeat from living in these conditions.

I was sad when Daniel passed away because he was presented in this film as a kind, lovable person. And when Katie reads his appeal speech at the funeral during the last scene in the movie, it hits me really hard due to how his fight for his welfare didn't happen due to his death. This unhappy ending reminded me of something Lemony Snicket said in one of his Series Of Unfortunate Events books.

"In this book, not only is there no happy ending, there is no happy beginning and very few happy things in the middle" - Lemony Snicket, A Series Of Unfortunate Events: The Bad Beginning, 1999

The same thing can be said for this film, if you replace the word 'book' with 'movie'.



Overall, this was an excellent movie with a terrific political commentary.

Rating: [ [GOLD], 100]

Death On The Nile (1978)

A great adaptation of the Agatha Christie novel of the same name.
The first half drags a bit, but by the time the murder on the boat happens, the film starts to get really interesting.
I love how the scenarios of the potential murderers were set up via alternate scenes, provided with a tense score from Nino Rota.
Peter Ustinov did a great job playing Hercules Poirot, as he blended into his character very well.
Overall, I loved this film due to its unique presentation of its possible scenarios, fabulous acting, well-written score and its large, memorable ensemble of suspects for the detective to investigate.

The Lunchbox (2013)

The score was beautiful and Irffan Khan put on a great performance, like he did in Slumdog Millionaire and Life Of Pi. The things his character of Saajan Fernandes writes on the notes to send to Ila is very interesting and I like the way he tells them. The aunt character was another highlight of this film, as she provided an amusing tone for the film.
The film may have been a bit slow at some points, but other than that it's a pretty good film.

The Dirt (2019)

A film showing the days of metal band Motley Crue during the peak of their fame in the 1980's. It was interesting, but also dark and depressing at points.

Shazam! (2019)

A fun, action-packed superhero movie with a great concept and a handful of good gags. Probably my favourite of the DCEU


Apocalypse Now (1979)

The version I was watching was the 'Redux' director's cut, with extra footage added.
I loved a lot of things about this film. The cinematography, the monologues spoken by Captain Willard while searching for Colonel Kurtz, the use of Wagner's Ride Of The Valkyries during a war scene, the way it shows how soldiers were affected following the Vietnam War, Marlon Brando's speech about 'horror'. The only thing dragging this down was the pacing; I thought it felt a bit too slow.
