Late Night

It’s no secret that I am a long time fan of everything Mindy Kaling. It’s also no secret that everyone with a brain is a fan of Emma Thompson. So I’ve basically been amped for Late Night from the moment it was first announced and it did not disappoint.  Emma Thompson plays Katherine Newbury, a late night ta...

Five Feet Apart – AKA Cole Sprouse on the big screen AKA nurses are cool

Full disclosure. I am going to tell you to pay money to see this movie purely so you can enjoy Cole Sprouse’s face on the big screen. I cannot guarantee that other positive things I say from this point on are not influenced by my desire for you to enjoy some ginormous Sprouse. Five Feet Apart follows ...

What Men Want

What Men Want is probably to not see this movie. LOLOLOLOL. I’m sorry. Let’s be honest, none of us were expecting this to be a good one. You’ve seen the trailer right? Yes. You know what you’re getting yourself into. I sat myself down in that theatre – knowing it wasn’t m...

Second Act

Do you hate cheesy chick flicks? Well I can save you some time right now and tell you that this is NOT the movie for you. If you don’t absolutely love the awesome terribleness of your stock-standard chick flick, then there is nothing redeemable I can tell you about Second Act. However, if Maid in Manh...

Crazy Rich Asians

Based on the 2013 Kevin Kwan novel, Crazy Rich Asians is a classic romantic comedy following Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she travels to Singapore to meet her boyfriend (Henry Golding)’s family. The film starts with a simple premise that may seem familiar but takes the audience on an entirely new adventure....

The Spy Who Dumped Me

Ahhh McKinnon, you’ve done it again. Yes, that was a weak re-purposing of the McCain commercial catch-phrase. “What’s that?” you ask? Please don’t embarrass us both with that question. I went into The Spy Who Dumped Me with fairly low expectations. I knew I’d at least enj...

Book Club

I once heard my mum talking to her friends about 50 Shades of Grey and she said, “There are two types of people that read this book; those that liked it and aren’t getting any, and those that hated it and are. And let me tell you, I HATED it!” And that’s basically what this movie is about. Let me begin by f...

The Beautiful Fantastic

This is a supremely sweet movie. Charming, quirky, quaint, and you will feel good for the rest of the day. Bella Brown (a name from a fairy tale in my opinion), is an agoraphobic, OCD shut-in who only ventures from her house to go to her job at the local library. She is an orphan, having been found as a bab...

Flippin' great

Lady Bird

Lady Bird is the most positively reviewed film of all time. That is to say it holds the record for the longest unspoiled streak of positive reviews as determined by Rotten Tomatoes, overtaking the last record holder, Toy Story 2. Greta Gerwig’s debut film (she is credited as the sole writer and director) is...

Bad Moms 2

Bad Moms was an unexpected treasure of a film for me. Following three Mums giving the middle finger to the competitiveness and pressure of being the ‘perfect mum’, it was excellently timed, comedic genius. You can see my full thoughts on it here. Bad Moms 2 aka A Bad Moms Christmas, unfortunatel...

Home Again

Ok. OK. OKAY. I don’t quite know what to make of Home Again.  I know one thing for sure though, Reese Witherspoon hasn’t aged a day since Legally Blonde (daaaamn guuurrrrl). Enough about the good things in this movie, let’s have a little peek into where it went wrong. The basic set up is t...
