Screen Shot 2016-04-13 at 12.05.22.pngIf you’re one of the few people who check this blog then you will have noticed the lack of 365 films in 2016 posts over the last week or so, well that is because I’ve decided to cut it short and quit while I’m still kind of enjoying it.

365 films in 2016: film 58 (Platform 1 2015)

Screen Shot 2016-03-19 at 02.06.45THIS FILM MADE ME FEEL VERY EMOTIONAL IN A STRANGE WAY. Platform 1 is one of the more experimental films i’ve seen this year, it sits somewhere in between documentary and feature, if you’re from any small english town like i am this film is going to feel very homely and local to you Continue reading “365 films in 2016: film 58 (Platform 1 2015)”

365 films in 2016: film 52 (Bandito 2015)

Screen Shot 2016-03-11 at 22.33.36Bandito is a cool project that i found out about randomly though vimeo, there’s something really enticing about short films to me.

365 films in 2016: film 37 (Steve Jobs 2015)

Screen Shot 2016-02-24 at 22.18.59Steve Jobs was an interesting person, i love my Apple products and I don’t think I could go back to using a pc or a non IPhone, phone but I will be the first to admit Apple products are overpriced metal and glass boxes, and I think I feel the same way about Steve jobs. On one hand I think he was a marketing genius who knew how to make people want a product even if they didn’t really need it, but then again I think he was an egotistical maniac who’s god complex made people who should have loved him hate him and lead to his own early death.
