I Want to Eat Your Pancreas

I want to eat your pancreas is a wonderous, reflective slice-of-life anime feature film, based on the award-winning novel of the same name. Mostly a character-driven affair with a clear, overarching plot thread: a girl living with a terminal illness – pancreatic cancer. Despite these unfortunate circumstanc...

You’ll have your Knives Out to get this Bluray

But only because the movie is so good. Knives Out is my second favourite movie of 2019. Second only to the magnificence that was Jojo Rabbit (another glorious film that you should definitely see if you have yet to!) If you want to know what kind of film Knives Out is, the opening scene gives you the most pe...

Meh

Hope Gap

Hope Gap is like Broadchurch if it was a movie about divorce. Starring Bill Nighy, Annette Bening and Josh O’Connor, it’s set against the beautiful backdrop of the English coastline. Nighy and Bening play a couple married three decades and seemingly rubbing each other up the wrong way the whole time. Their ...

The Current War and the beauty of watching a well-made film

I’ve always been a Benedict Cumberbatch fan, and ever since we saw him at Wellington Armageddon last year, I’ve taken a bit of a liking to Nicholas Hoult. So yes, I was pretty keen for The Current War. The film opens up to the sultry tones of Benedict Cumberbatch’s cringey American accent. I writhed a bit w...

Why you should already own Parasite on DVD or Blu-ray.

I just watched Parasite. My mind is blown. You know when there’s a movie out that everyone is raving about and it wins awards and people are like OMG on social media…and you still haven’t seen it. Then you’re hesitant to watch it because it’s been way too hyped and surely it ca...

A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood

There are muscles you rarely use, and it’s obvious when it comes time to use them. Some of these rarely used muscles are in your face. You can’t actively choose to flex them; they are activated subconsciously in certain situations. I don’t know what these face ones do or what function they have but by...

1917

This movie I went into with fresh eyes. I watched one trailer and I knew 1917 was for me. So I never watched another. I went in with just one question, will it compare will it compete, with Dunkirk. It’s the height of the First World War and we immediately join two friends on a mission. An insanely importan...

The Addams Family

The Addams Family put simply was a surprising treat. I hadn’t watched the trailer going into the film so I was entering with fresh eyes, and I must say I was pleasantly thrilled with my experience. The movie directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan felt genuine to the original while also adding newer elem...

The Gentlemen: More Fun than Should be Allowed

So here’s me trying to convince my friend to come see The Gentlemen with me. I send him the trailer link accompanied by this message, “I love this director but I honestly, I can’t understand too much of the plot.” Friend writes back. “Oh wow, that IS my type of movie.” Th...

Little Women – The perfect film adaptation

“I like good strong words that mean something.” – Jo March It would seem that Greta Gerwig values good strong words just as much as Jo and good strong characters to go with them. I’m a little lost for any words of my own. Little Women was perfection. I grew up reading Little Women & Good Wiv...
