Mary Poppins Returns (2018)

Well, here it is folks. My most anticipated film of the year, and the film that I was most afraid of! If you don’t already know, it’s no secret that Mary Poppins is one of my favourite movies of all time, perhaps even my very favourite. From the moment this sequel was announced, my thoughts…

Lizzie (2018)

Cinema might be my greatest passion and interest, but something that certainly finds itself comfortably in the top five is true crime. From Forensic Files to The Jinx to any number of awesome podcasts, true crime is probably the thing that sends me in to more Wikipedia holes than any other topic. You can imagine…

Dumplin’ (2018)

Ralph Breaks The Internet (2018)

Here’s the thing. If Disney think they can get me excited for something other than Mary Poppins Returns for the rest of 2018, then they’ve got another thing coming. In fact, my thoughts have been so consumed with the sequel to my favourite film of ALL TIME that I barely remembered I had a date with…

The Girl In The Spider’s Web (2018)

If there is one thing that has the potential to put me off a film completely, it is the phrase ‘soft reboot’. Attempting to continue or reinvent a story or franchise with significant changes hardly ever goes well, especially when the first property made such an impression. 2011’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, already…
