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...

Charlie’s Angels

Was 11 year old Saskia a fan of Charlie’s Angels (2000)? YES. Was 30 year old Saskia a fan of Charlie’s Angels (2019)? YES. Has my taste in movies adapted and matured over the years? I LIKE TO THINK SO. Just like 2000 Charlie’s Angels was made for it’s time (possibly the most 2000ish...

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...

Spider-Man: Far From Home – to take home

When I agreed to review Far From Home I still hadn’t actually seen Homecoming. So I quickly watched that the night before Far From Home arrived at my door. I really enjoyed Homecoming for the most part and I was excited to finally sit down and get into it’s supposedly much better sequel! You can...

Zombieland: Double Tap

I re-watched Zombieland the night before going to see Double Tap to remember why I loved it so much when I first saw it and get myself hyped for the sequel. I can tell you I loved it just as much during the re-watch! The charm of Zombieland, for me, was the teaming up of 4 unlikely companions and the narrat...

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...

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.

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...

Pokemon: Detective Pikachu

Pokemon figurines were my star chart rewards growing up. In primary school I had a friendship based purely around the fact that she had the Pokemon game on her PC – and I did not. I traded the cards, I had my figurines stolen by dick kids in my class, I had a talking Pikachu toy that was basically lik...

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Digital Release

Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse is a movie that caught me completely by surprise. I hadn’t heard too much about it, prior to seeing it, and had no expectations. I was blown away. I would probably rank it in my top 5 favourite animated movies EVER (I love animated movies – so it’s a big d...
