Movie Reviews

Here I have all the movies I’ve reviewed in alphabetical order.

I feel like giving movies proper genres is harder work than it’s worth. My previous review page was hard to navigate as a result and the addition of new genres/hierarchies of genres made it irritating to update. As such, I’ll list the genres listed on a movie’s Wikipedia page or IMDb page. Any exceptions are explained below.

* – I feel this genre is appropriate for the movie but it’s not “official”, whatever that means.
