Destroyer (2018)

In the midst of Oscar season, it is easy to forget that there are more films to catch than just the ten or so big hitters that are deemed ‘unmissable’ by the Academy. Though I’ll obviously get through all of the nominees before the big night, it’s also nice to walk in to something that…

Vice (2018)

Looking back on it, it’s probably fair to say that my first memories of American politics in any real sense came during the years of the George W. Bush administration. Being born in 1989, Bill Clinton was pretty much a guy who was mentioned in the Animaniacs theme and a guy who did something naughty…

Mary Queen Of Scots (2018)

Something that any Oh! That Film Blog reader will know about me is that I am a bastard for a musical, but another fact you might not be so familiar with is that I also happen to a bastard for a Tudor! From the first Henry to the final Liz, the Tudor period is one…

Although Keira Knightley’s latest release doesn’t appear to have sparked the interest of any major governing bodies this year, there is something comfortable and correct feeling about…

Welcome To Marwen (2018)

The beginning of 2019 looks set to be a busy period for one Steve Carell. Continuing his journey to break out of the comedy genre for which he is best known, Carell has two interesting projects coming out in short succession in the UK. We have to wait a couple weeks more for the hotly…
