I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this album.

Film For Thought?

I'm not the type of person who likes to thrust my political opinion upon people, and I do not intend for this piece to come across as so, however, I have never been more profoundly moved by a movie than I was when watching I Daniel Blake. It connects with the audience in a way that few films ever have.

Records You Must Have In Your Collection: #1

Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison. 

I have a tendency to profess my love for Johnny Cash in just about every situation in which his name arises. Some call it an obsession? I like to call it devotion.

T2: Choose a mediocre sequel.

Choose failed zeitgeist. Choose sharp cuts. Choose bright lighting. Choose obscure camera angles. Choose a well made feature film with a plot that just doesn’t go anywhere. Choose nostalgia, flashbacks and profane language. Choose Johnny Lee Miller's failed attempt at a Scottish accent. Choose the loss of grittiness and artistry. Choose going to the cinema, with high expectations of another seminal film but receiving an over produced mass of middle-aged crises paired with sex, drugs and violence. Choose pantomime villains. Choose forced allusions to the unparalleled independent film that broke the 90's.

Choose a bad representation of Scottish culture.

Choose a mediocre sequel.

La La Land: A Film for the Dreamers.

"City of stars, are you shining just for me?"

In this homage to film history and the golden age of Hollywood, Damien Chazelle has created an era defining masterpiece that people most definitely should give a shit about. His newest feature La La Land is utterly magnetic in every sense of the word. From the opening sequence, the audience are dazzled by the intoxicating beauty of his use of song and colour. Straying from the path of Broadway cliche, this movie strikes ambition and soul into the heart's of everyone that watches it.
