It’s the middle one photo courtesy: Imgur

Title: Queen of The Damned

Author: Anne Rice

Star Rating: ***/5

First Impressions: The cover looks like something 14 year old me would love.

Final Verdict: Ok this is 90’s twilight but gayer and well better but thats not really a compliment is it. Twilight may as well have been written in cow dung for all I care. It’s worth a read though.

6.A film made by a Director under 30- I Killed My Mother-

Photo Credit: Allocine

Xavier Dolan is an up and comer in the film world. He’s french canadian, young and proves i’m not doing enough with my life. He has already directed 5 films at the tender age of 26, including last years hit “Mommy”. His work is incredible and thought provoking and like most french cinema, gorgeous.

“I Killed my Mother” is the story of a young boy  who has not told is mother about his relationship with her best friends son. It’s tense, hostile but also a beautiful piece. One of the most interesting films i’ve ever just accidentally stumbled on at Film 4.

5. A Film released the year you were born- The Usual Suspects

For this one there really is only one film I would like to feature and that is the classic twist movie “The Usual Suspects”. Kevin Spacey’s award winning performance as usual is completely perfect. Can that man do no wrong?? Starring Spacey as Verbal Kint, a conman who survived a horrific event which he claims was caused by Kaiser Sozei. The story becomes more and more ridiculously complex and incredible. MODERN CLASSIC.

 

 

4. A film released in 2015- Birdman

I will start off with something you have heard a thousand times but is only really true now, Birdman is a masterpiece. It will confuse you, sting you, make you angry and confused. But most importantly you’ll laugh at the sheer strangeness of what looks like one continuous shot of a group of people trying to keep one man from falling whilst that man is just trying to fly again
The best film you’ll ever watch
You can find my full review here

3. A movie set in a place you have always wanted to visit- Chocolat

For Prompt 3- A movie set in a place you always wanted to visit. I chose Chocolat as it’s set in a tiny village in rural France. It looks quaint and beautifully old fashioned and I would love to spend a day there.

This beautiful film tells the story of a woman and her daughter as they set up in chocolate shop in a very conservative village. They lead a massive overhaul in the village and look after other women.

In fact the way the women all work is my favourite thing about it. Not one of the characters is perfect at all but they are all incredibly endearing.

What a fantastic film, I would recommend this wholeheartedly to anyone looking for something to watch on a quiet night in. (Expect this film to come up again)
