Robin Hood

DI: It’s a 2018 re-imagining of Robin Hood starring Taron Egerton (Kingsman). The trailer promises a sexier version of our beloved thief and I’m glad to see that there were no signs of men in tight tights (as much as I enjoyed the song that goes with this imagery). From the very start, the film overturns yo...

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

I enjoyed the first Fantastic Beasts movie. So if you and I are already at odds about that, then you might not want to trust my thoughts on the second one. You can check out my review of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them here. I’m also aware that Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald is gettin...

Suspiria

I am very rarely lost for words. Regardless of my thoughts or feelings about a film, being able to express my obnoxious opinion is usually something that comes quite easily. This review is going to be quite the opposite. So please forgive me if this review feels to lack a clear through line. I am honestly j...

Great

Bohemian Rhapsody

It is no small feat portraying an icon and there is none more iconic than Freddy Mercury. Star Rami Malek (Mr Robot) does not disappoint. Bohemian Rhapsody opens at Live Aid 1985 and the camera tracks Freddy from his trailer to the stage. We don’t see his face but the outfit and physicality are instantly re...

A Star is Born

I should start by saying I did not buy into the hype for A Star is Born. Anything that is written (partly at least), directed and starring the same person is sure to be self indulgent but in less than five minutes, my mind was to be completely changed. There is no question that Cooper is a born director wit...

Adrift

Okay, I honestly don’t know if I’ve ever had such a visceral reaction at the movies. I’ve never squirmed as much, tensed as much or made so much noise! And before you call me a wimp, I wasn’t the only one either! Whenever I winced at another shocking moment, I’d look over and see my best friend Reuben...

Meh

Sicario: Day of the Soldado

Guns, guns, guns and they all come with the fingers to pull them. But where is the heart of it all? It’s probably in Benicio’s eyes as he empties another clip. I don‘t even know what that means, but it sounds cool. I guess. But just like this movie, it’s kinda pointless in the end. F...

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...

Jurassic World 2: Fallen Kingdom

I’ve always loved the Jurassic franchise. It’s got dinosaurs, it’s got laughs, it’s got stupid decisions, it’s got Jeff Goldblum and it’s got just enough suspense and dino-surprises to thrill, but not keep you up at night. It’s fun. What more could you possibly want...

Mary Shelley

Mary Shelley is a biographical period piece about author of Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, arguably the first true science fiction story. Daughter of a novelist/polictical philosopher and writer/feminist, Mary Shelley (Elle Fanning) was born into a fascinating world of political rebellion whose li...
