Aladdin: Blu-Ray Release

Back in May this year, Eloise wrote a glowing two-thumbs-up review for Disney’s live-action version of Aladdin. If that didn’t convince you that you should add this to your collection of Blu-Rays, costumes and Funko Pops of Disney princesses, read on. While Aladdin hasn’t actually been my ...

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 ...

Weathering With You – Josh’s Review

I love my brother, but I chose the wrong companion to join me for this film. Weathering With You is a beautiful love story that is certain to induce a lot of snuggling with your significant other. My only dilemma… finding a significant other. Anyway you’re not here to read about my love life, so let’s talk ...

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...

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...

Disney’s Aladdin (that live-action one you’ve all been fearing)

Hi, I’m Eloise and I’m a Disney-fanatic. I’ve always been a massive Disney fan and absolutely love the Disney Princess movies. My favourite though, is Beauty and The Beast  (probably because Belle loves reading books and so do I!). However, as it was my childhood favourite Disney Princess movie, I was very ...

Five Feet Apart – AKA Cole Sprouse on the big screen AKA nurses are cool

Full disclosure. I am going to tell you to pay money to see this movie purely so you can enjoy Cole Sprouse’s face on the big screen. I cannot guarantee that other positive things I say from this point on are not influenced by my desire for you to enjoy some ginormous Sprouse. Five Feet Apart follows ...

Second Act

Do you hate cheesy chick flicks? Well I can save you some time right now and tell you that this is NOT the movie for you. If you don’t absolutely love the awesome terribleness of your stock-standard chick flick, then there is nothing redeemable I can tell you about Second Act. However, if Maid in Manh...

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...

Crazy Rich Asians

Based on the 2013 Kevin Kwan novel, Crazy Rich Asians is a classic romantic comedy following Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she travels to Singapore to meet her boyfriend (Henry Golding)’s family. The film starts with a simple premise that may seem familiar but takes the audience on an entirely new adventure....
