Thoughts on the JOKER Backlash

I really enjoyed the Joker movie.

There I said it, although not perfect it was well made, had a standout performance from Joaquin Phoenix and put a unique spin on one of the most famous comicbook villains ever. However, that seems to be a more and more controversial opinion recently, I'll admit it made me feel uncomfortable, the violence is portrayed in a brutal and realistic fashion that is quite unsettling to watch. 
But does this make the movie dangerous? I’m not sure, I’ve seen more violent films, but not in this type of big budget / mainstream movie.

Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood - My MIxed Thoughts

I’ve got out of the habit of writing movie reviews on MoviePush, but after seeing “Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood” I felt I just had to write my thoughts down.
I have mixed feelings on this movie, I really enjoyed OUATIH but at the same time I’m not sure if it’s one of my least favourite Quentin Tarantino films, which is a ridiculous statement to make, but it’s just so hard to grapple with.

I really can’t say more without getting into spoilers...

The Matrix Trilogy Retrospective

I recently went to see the 20th Anniversary release of The Matrix, restored in 4K. The Matrix is my favourite film of all time but I hadn’t watched it for a few years, the rewatch reignited my love for franchise and so over the last few weeks I’ve been rewatching the trilogy and a lot of the supporting material (The Animatrix and Enter The Matrix).

Due to its release timing (years before I started MoviePush), I don’t think I’ve ever written anything about The Matrix on my blog and therefore thought I do a bit of a Matrix Trilogy retrospective.
