    Films you've seen recently and would unreservedly recommend:

    Kong vs Godzilla. The last two zilla in hollywood films have been so-so, though the last one at least had lots of other monsters, but the best thing about them is that the new hollywood CGI godzilla looks really quite excellent. having seen the old godzilla movies from the 60s and 70s recently...

    Films You've Seen Recently and Don't Know WTF to think

    first cow. only seen night moves by this director, which was a bit more plotty, and had more narrative momentum and tension, so maybe that was a bit misleading, as this is Slow Cinema, minimalist, more opaque, to my mind, a bit too self aware, and actually just not really about all that much, or...

    Music and "the zeitgeist"

    haha. actually yes. grime and dubstep was the last scene i was totally invested in. feels like an absolute age ago. there are still cool scenes i def like (gqom for example), but theres tons i have not investigated from recent years. tbh i often just like sticking on radio one or kiss and...

    Music and "the zeitgeist"

    i have no idea what the geist is anymore. actually i think i have no real firm handle on modern music either. maybe it was always thus. i just deluded myself into thinking you could have a firm handle and now with so much of the stuff it becomes perfectly clear that such a perspective is a bit...

    The Life of a True Disciple of Hip Hop

    possibly. tbh i know lots of people like to take potshots at UKHH, and i get it, i remember that vice piece or was it an nme piece on skinnyman that totally derided the scene as it was all nerdy looking m/c white guys, which ofc were a big part of it, but thats not really true, and even if it...

    new dean blunt

    i liked that one he did with delroy edwards. nothing taxing, just a lot of lo-fi hiss and hazy beats to zone out to.

    The Life of a True Disciple of Hip Hop

    i remember harry love having a bit of a buzz at one point. i saw him once on a night bus. his GF looked nice. found it hard to listen to this. couldnt find the entry point. idk if i care enough, but i know these guys meant something to people into ukhh. or people invested in/active in the ukhh...

    Uncut Gems (2019)

    the pace of it evoking modern life is interesting as one of the safdies is kind of fixated on making sure the audience isnt ever bored. where is the end point of that though? the one thing i think that i wasnt that impressed with was the ending. it seemed rightfully blunt and makes sense when...

    Uncut Gems (2019)

    saw this a second time - was thinking it wouldnt be half as good and it does lose the stressfulness (somewhat), the manic pace, the unpredictability, its easier to follow, but it still works as a comic tragedy and character study when you already know how it plays out. howard is a guy that just...

    Uncut Gems (2019)

    safdies are the best american filmmakers doing it right now. lopatin's score for UG is intense but it might make the films even better if he used some more modern synths.

    GRIME- breaking news, gossip, slander, lies etc

    dee basically just repeats himself nowadays. i think bruza, dee, flirta d and lady stush would be good doing voices on cbeebies or kids cartoons. dog-z and syer b should be in all those football hooligan films on london live. or they should get trained to be football commentators. trim might be...

    Upcoming films

    irishman is a bit like a netflix mini series in one go, so no dramatic peaks, though very easy to watch. pesci doesnt do much, though its nice to see him in a big film again, deniro looks bored. it does get good in the last hour when we finally see everyone in the present day, but otherwise its...

    Joker (2019)

    Zac snyder is weirdly underrated The DK nolan films were the dullest looking and most lumbering batman films ever made Batman vs superman was much more exciting

    Joker (2019)

    what a let down. i did fall asleep mid way so maybe i missed a lot of good bits, but when i woke up, the film was finally getting into gear, or at least getting ready for a joke about short people. phoenix is actualy a bit overrated (when you were here was just terrible, and as full of rehashed...
