  1. Will be seeing Underwater because I love being confronted with two of my fears – oceans and unknown creatures – wrapped in a “it looks so bad it’ll be good” movie.

    However, do we really need another Matrix movie or a Practical Magic prequel? Are they really so out of ideas that they’re just capitalizing on all the great 90s movies? Stop it.

  2. I just saw Portrait of a Lady on Fire in the NZIFF and it’s so good, you guys! Just stunningly beautiful and moving and also there are literally no men on screen except for one guy for five seconds at the beginning who gives directions!
