Da 5 Bloods (2020)

I’ll be the first to admit that as someone who considers themselves a true film lover, I don’t pay near enough attention to directors compared to actors. I can probably count on both hands the number of directors that signal an automatic watch for me, whereas my personal list of must watch performers is vast.…

A Rainy Day In New York (2019)

2020 is really going out of its way to be one of the craziest years in history. Seismic changes are happening in various corners of the globe, many for the better, all whilst we battle a life changing viral pandemic. Shit’s wild, right? I thought why not add more mayhem to the mix by, perhaps…

The High Note (2020)

I’m at the point now where it’s getting more and more difficult to say the same thing about lockdown and watching things at home in different ways over and over again, so let’s just get down to it shall we? Previously scheduled for a theatrical release on May 8th, Nisha Ganatra’s The High Note became…

The Lovebirds (2020)

If there is one company that has thrived during this current pandemic, it’s bloody Netflix. With just ourselves and our remotes for company at home, the vast majority of us have turned to streaming for our film fixes. Originally scheduled for a theatrical release in April, things didn’t quite go to plan for Michael Showalter’s The…

Never Rarely Sometimes Always (2020)

I don’t know about you, but the general rule for me is that if a picture makes waves at the Sundance Film Festival, it’s pretty much a certainty that I am going to be a fan. From Little Miss Sunshine to Donnie Darko to Whiplash and many more, some of my all time favourites have…

Capone (2020)

I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get used to this ‘new films from the sofa’ way of life. Sure, nothing beats the atmosphere of a pitch black cinema with the perfect sound, but I have to say I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how smooth this VOD era transition has been so far.…

How To Build A Girl (2019)

After scraping around for what to watch for the last few weeks, it seems as though we’ve reached a stage in this cinema lockdown where the big boys are coming to the quarantine party. My next three reviews look set to be for high profile movies that I was always going to be watching in…

The Assistant (2019)

Hello again, hope everyone out there is still healthy and hasn’t ‘completed’ Netflix yet. It’s coming up to two months now since I saw a film in the cinema, probably the longest theatre-less stretch since childhood! I am happy, however, that there seems to be a regular and steady flow of home releases to enjoy…

Les Misérables (2019)

Fun fact; Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables was one of the first films I ever covered on this blog way back when I was fresher faced, less cynical, and judging by the content of the review itself, significantly less adept at writing! With those memories and a quick jolt “oh fuck, I’m thirty” running through the…

Cuck (2019)

As the lockdown continues, each week’s new releases are getting increasingly thinner on the ground. But, with very few things happening in everyday life to remind what day it is, I’ve started to turn to this blog as a means of tracking time! One new review equals one new week in our current dystopia, and…
