Review: Personal Shopper

Posted by Matt Looker at 22:00 on 20 Mar 2017
Personal Shopper
"A brazenly unconventional ghost story" says Time Out's poster quote for this film, presumably because "A profound and intimate exploration of humankind's innate need for existential crisis" didn't do the right job. There’s no denying that Personal Shopper is a ghost story of sorts, but that hardly seems an adequate description. It may begin with some spooky fare about a haunted house and a terrifying manifestation, but this isn't a film of jump-scares and sudden bangs, it's a film that gives the audience the space and respect to ruminate on the very concept of an afterlife. These ghosts don't say "boo!", they say "who?" and indeed "why?" as well as "how does that make you feel? Mm-hmm, mm-hmm. Let's talk about that." 

Twilight has the most anodyne IMDB movie trivia ever

Twilight has the most anodyne IMDB movie trivia ever
I swear I'm not trying to shit on Twilight's parade, but... well, they just keep coming to me. For work reasons (honest injun) I had to look up some Twilight trivia, expecting some fun titbits of info and cool easter eggs. I was disappointed.

Review: On The Road

On The Road
I don't know me too much 'bout no fancy book-learnin', but I do know you can get away with a lot more fannying about in a book than you can in a film. After watching On The Road I was left with the impression that Jack Kerouac's book, from which it was adapted and which I've never read, was probably a disjointed, stream-of-consciousness kind of affair, in which traditional notions of narrative structure matter less than the overall mood. Well, good for you, Jack (*tousles Kerouac's hair*). But this is a book that's long been thought unfilmable, and it's easy to see why.

The Twilight Defacement Project: breaking down Breaking Dawn Part 2
To be honest, I forget why we started defacing every single new film still from the Twilight movies, but it's too much fun to stop.

Review: Snow White And The Huntsman

Snow White And The Huntsman
What's this, you say? A film about Snow White? A movie in which Kristen Stewart has to choose between two dudes? A movie in which Charlize Theron behaves like a complete lunatic? A movie in which Chris Hemsworth is a swarthy yet heroic warrior? Please, continue! How delightfully original! There hasn't been a movie like this for years! Seriously! Shit you guys! My sarcasm button is stuck! It's making it sooo difficult to write this review with any modicum of professionalism! Ugh!

Jesus vamping Christ, these new Twilight posters are boring

Jesus vamping Christ, these new Twilight posters are boring
Every single poster for the Twilight saga thus far has featured a gloomy background with a mopey bastard on it. Breaking Dawn Part 2 does not break trend. Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are literally the poster children for inertia.

Quiz: On The Road poster quote or David Brent philosophy?

Quiz: On The Road poster quote or David Brent philosophy?
I'll admit, straight out of the gate: Jack Kerouac's On The Road is not one of the one-and-a-half books I have read. However, I don't think you need to be a 'reader' to recognise that the movie's poster quotes this far are frightfully pretentious and really quite naff. In fact, they could easily be confused with the words of homespun wisdom regularly dispensed by Wernham-Hogg regional manager, David Brent. Let's play a game!
