Wonder

As I was leaving the cinema, a girl to my right turned to her friend, motioned towards her face and said “Am I good?” Her friend looked at the running mascara all over her face, laughed and said “You’re not good!” I smiled smugly to myself, for I had the foresight to not wear m...

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...

Thor: Ragnarok

I am not a Marvel fangirl. I don’t squeal every time a new film is announced or countdown the days until the films are released. In fact, I was getting a little sick of Marvel superhero movies until along came Guardians of the Galaxy, with it’s new brand of Marvel humour and general vibe, it was...

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...

Brigsby Bear & Nick’s hot dating tips

Of all the reviews I’ve written this one will be one of the hardest. Because I’ve gotta be subtle and light. I’ve gotta run parallel to the subject, to highlight yet not reveal. Because I loved it. I loved Brigsby Bear 9 out of 10. That’s all you really need to know. You can just stop reading now and just g...

Happy Death Day

Does the thought of a cross between satirical slasher movie Scream and the time looping romantic comedy Groundhog Day excite you? Then you’ll love the new black comedy movie, Happy Death Day. Cynical college student Tree Gelbman (Jessica Rothe) wakes on her birthday nursing a raging hangover induced headach...

The Lego Ninjago Movie

I’m going to come right out and say it: I’m 23 years old and I LOVED The Lego Movie and The Lego Batman Movie. The former, I watched 4 times by choice. So my hopes were high for The Lego Ninjago Movie. Lego Ninjago stars the voice talent of Jackie Chan (Master Wu), Dave Franco (Master Builder Ll...

Kingsman: The Golden Circle – watch it bruv

Ultraviolence + a dash of smutty humour + a bunch of one liners = Kingsman: The Golden Circle I didn’t know if I’d be willing to jump back into the Kingsman world after the ending of the first one spoiled the fun I’d been having, but I’m SO glad I did! Definitely not a film for the c...

The Battle of the Sexes

The name, Billie Jean King, meant absolutely nothing to me before going into The Battle of the Sexes. This could be a reflection of my age, lack of general knowledge, or a telltale sign that I don’t really care for sports! However, stepping out of the cinema I was determined to find out more! In 1973 ...

The Big Sick

Louise: As a genre, rom coms get a bad rap for being cheesy, cliche and predictable. When you suggested we review this, I was like “come on Lucy, a romantic comedy?” And then I saw how highly rated it was on Rotten Tomatoes so I was like “Okay, I’ll give this a shot.” And guess what? I loved it. Lucy: I’ve ...

The Trip to Spain

“There better be some Spain in this,” I joke as the lights dim. Which is honestly the only hope I have for this movie. If someone gave me a movie to review and said it was about two fifty-year old guys on a road trip, I think my response would be less than thrilled. But the Spanish thing makes i...

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

“They call themselves the Guardians of the Galaxy.” “What a bunch of a-holes.” So yeah, that about sums it up. Of course the ladies-in-charge will never accept a two sentence quote as a review so allow me to elaborate. Normally when I review something, I like to watch the thing I’m reviewing and then start ...
