A Simple Favour

It’s hard not to go into A Simple Favour and compare it to Gone Girl. I urge you not to, if you can resist, because although it does seem to follow several plot points from Gone Girl – A Simple Favour is it’s own confusing blend of genres. However, it’s too hard not to… so I am...



The Meg

“That was the best movie I’ve seen all year!” my friend exclaimed as we left the cinema. While I can’t quite agree with her, I was certainly blown away at how not-bad The Meg had turned out to be. When you walk into a monster movie like The Meg, all you want to see is Jason Statham f...

The story follows Michele (Isabelle Huppert) as she goes about her daily life following a brutal rape from an unknown assailant in her home. In the opening moments of the movie we’re introduced to Michèl...

Nocturnal Animals

I’m going to be absolutely honest – Nocturnal Animals was not really my kind of movie. I don’t mind psychological thrillers. In fact, I absolutely adore them. But I wouldn’t really describe Nocturnal Animals as a traditional psychological thriller. Most films in the genre will really attempt to mess with th...
