Uncut Gems – 9.5/10

The plot itself is highly original and unlike anything I’ve seen; Adam Sandler plays Jeweller Howard Ratner, who specialises in supplying ‘bling’ to sports stars/rap artists. Not only was this world completely alien to me, but the absurdity and lavishness of the lifestyle is completely engrossing. You find yourself baffled that someone like Howard has managed to navigate his way through life and get this far without receiving his comeuppance.

The plot goes places you would never predict, with Howard getting himself into one nail biting situation after another. The Safdie’s took almost a decade to write this and went through multiple drafts and the result is a film crammed full of swearing, violence, humour, smut, sex and music. It builds towards one hell of a crescendo and rarely pauses for breath. This film is why we love cinema. Worth admission for the cinematography and score alone.

Uncut Gems - 8/10. Well written and acted.

1917 7/10. I think I watched this in the wrong mood. I was looking for the cuts instead of concentrating fully on the story. Or maybe the story wasn't gripping enough.

Fighting With My Family
8/10

Thought this was gonna be shite, as it’s wrestling- related, how wrong was I! The true story of Paige’s ascent to top of the ladies WWE ladder, from her grappling family roots in Norwich. Really enjoyed it

Uncut Gems
6.5/10

After reading the reviews on here, found it *somewhere* online and watched. 2 hrs of living a madman’s life, with an erratic, irritating soundtrack on almost every scene. Had to see the end, just out of curiosity. Was more annoyed and anxious by the end, rather than exhilarated- not a really enjoyable experience
