Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) is being transported from America to Europe to face prosecution for his crimes on European soil. Unsurprisingly, he escapes, and builds an army of followers to help him create a wizarding world of entirely pure-blooded wizards. Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists the help of Newt (Eddie Redmanye) to help move against the dark wizard.

Dario Argento’s Suspiria is a gory classic with the most incredible colour palettes to ever grace a horror film. It’s brisk running time, corny script and iconic score only adds to the film’s everlasting legacy. So, when it was announced that the 1977 classic would be remade there were murmurings of discontent among horror aficionados who wondered if anything sacred was safe from the evils of a remake? Then Luca Guadagnino announced himself as director and, following the success of A Bigger Splash and Call Me By Your Name, people were curious.

The Peterloo massacre is relatively unknown event among British people, yet it was still nominated as one of the events most in need of a proper memorial to commemorate the 15 people who were mowed down by the 15th Hussars in 1819. Mike Leigh’s film follows a shell-shocked soldier and his family as they try to live on meagre suppliers as their oppressors live lavishly off their hard work and suffering. Eventually, the family become involved in the revolutionary movement and find themselves at Petersfield on that fateful day.

I know I’ve been away a while, just found it hard to watch as much films as I would need to in order to participate. Anyway, im here this week!
And this week the theme is gangsters. Funsies. Of course there are a ton of famous gangster movies such as The Godfather, Goodfelleas, Casino, White Heat but the gangster genre was at its peak around the time talkies were all the rage (and just before the Hays Code) so it’s not a surprise one of my picks is from that era.
