Downton Abbey

If you haven’t finished season 6’s Christmas special of Downton Abbey, please stop here and go watch that first. Not only will that save you from possible spoilers, but it’s a damn good episode. Like, everything you ever wanted to happen happens and you cry happy tears about it. Okay I mig...

Time Freak

We all know when you get that dreaded “We need to talk” text message, it’s not good. Nine times out of ten it’s usually bad news… or it’s over. You’d be wishing for the “can you come to my office?” equivalent from your boss instead. When you’re on the verge of losing the love of your life, like ...

Ride Like a Girl

Right from the beginning, Ride Like a Girl gives you the sense of a kind of rags-to-riches story – the kind that gets you ready to cheer for the underdog. Based on the true story of Michelle Payne, the biopic captures her life, her family and the journey she took to become the first female jockey to w...

Blinded By The Light

I watched the trailer. I thought to myself “This looks a bit cheesy, but has potential. Bruce Springsteen will probably make up for any cheese”. I was right and wrong and just generally unprepared for what I was about to experience.

Weathering With You – Andrea’s review

I teared up at least twice watching this film. It was an emotional roller coaster and it was a great one! I was so excited to watch this movie and it did not disappoint. But expected right? I mean it is from the creators of Your Name (Kimi no Na Wa).   Weathering with You is a bit darker than Your Name...

Once Upon a Time In Hollywood

I have been reviewing for the crew at Pretty Much Geeks for over a year now and this is the most nervous I have felt about reviewing a film in all that time. As a member of the performing arts industry myself, offering feedback on such a prolific writer and filmmaker such as Quentin Tarantino is super intim...

Booksmart

Good morning, winner. Take a deep breath. Visualize the mountain of your success and look down at everyone who’s ever doubted you. Fuck those losers. Fuck them in their stupid fucking faces.“ And that is how teenagers think. Booksmart is a coming-of-age teenage film which actually feels like it is abo...

I Believe In Yesterday

I read about the concept for the plot of Yesterday, before it was attached to a director, and knew it was going to be a movie I was going to love. What would you do if you woke up being the only person in the world that remembered The Beatles existed? That is the question faced by Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) ...

A Captain Marvel To Call Your Own

Captain Marvel, she’s a hero, gonna take girl power up from… zero!? SHE’S GOT POWERS MAGNIFIED AND SHE’S FIGHTING ON MANY PLANETS’ SIDES. Ok, my Captain planet theme song re-purposing didn’t quite work. I’m just amped about Captain Marvel. But I do kinda hope I̵...

Ophelia

With a slight contemporary voice, Ophelia still is everything you’d want from a movie set in the Middle Ages. Sword fighting, sumptuous gowns, a touch of madness and non-American accents…what more could you want? Chances are, a whole lot more. And fortunately, Ophelia delivers, and not just in b...

Never Look Away: You won’t be able to anyway.

Every time I go to see an “artsy” foreign film, I find myself bracing for one or more of the following: violence, debauchery and gratuitous angst. Whether founded or not, this is my personal impression from surviving film school. And so with Never Look Away, a film mostly set in post-war East Ge...

Rocketman

Tis the season for musical biopics! After Bohemian Rhapsody’s huge splash, picking up Academy Awards and becoming one of the most talked-about movies of 2018, I was interested to see what direction Rocketman would take. The answer? Rocketman took ALL of the directions. A total hurricane of glamour and a rol...
