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...

Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn

Saskia – The dream review team is back together!  Ashton Brown as: Reviewer who has seen Suicide Squad – thought he liked it at the time of viewing as a brainless popcorn flick but as time went on realised how terrible it was –  but is still pumped for Birds of Prey. Saskia as: Review...

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...

Last Christmas

As I entered the cinema through a mini forest of twinkling Christmas trees, was handed a large cup of mulled wine and some Christmas cookies, I knew it was going to be almost impossible to dislike Last Christmas. There’s something about a Christmas movie that sucks me in no matter how terrible the act...

Joker – Ashton’s Favourite movie OF ALL TIME

Over 10 years ago, a movie was released that redefined cinema to me. Christopher Nolan took my favourite superhero and my favourite supervillain and created one of the most thrilling, exciting, well acted and endearing cinematic films of my life. Nolan took the characters from the pages of a comic book and ...

Ad Astra

Brad Pitt’s face is certainly a highlight of Ad Astra and possibly the only reason I went to see it. After watching Once Upon A Time In Hollywood I remembered he existed and needed to see more. Luckily, Ad Astra provides a lot of Brad Pitt. A lot of Brad Pitt and not muuuuuch else. That’s probab...

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 ...
