Barb And Star Go To Vista Del Mar (2021)

Any Oh! That Film Blog reader will know that I love me some Oscars and Golden Globes, but at the same time it’s fair to say that during this particular time of the cinematic year, things can start to get a little but serious and sombre in the hopes of attracting dramatic hype. As in…

Judas And The Black Messiah (2021)

With the recent Golden Globe and SAG nominations being officially revealed, it’s fair to say that we are truly in the swing of awards season 2021. Whilst Shaka King’s Judas And The Black Messiah might not have garnered the sweeping amount of nominations that some had expected so far, its release still felt very much…

Malcolm & Marie (2021)

At this point in the seemingly never ending COVID-19 pandemic, it’s fair to say that we’re all sick of talking about it, but in this particular instance, the circumstances surrounding Sam Levinson’s Malcolm & Marie are worth a mention. In what is sure to become great future film trivia, this project is the first Hollywood…

The Little Things (2021)

We’re at that time of year in the UK right now where the rain falls pretty much every day and the sun is nowhere to be seen after 4PM. I don’t know about you, but those kinds of conditions always draw me towards the darker side of cinema. Now isn’t the time for a fluffy…

The Dig (2021)

With January almost over and any remnants of hungover festive spirit will and truly gone, it is always around this time of the year that I am more susceptible to the charms of a good old fashioned British period drama. It just so happens that Netflix were more than happy to scratch that particular itch…

News Of The World (2020)

With stars getting ‘cancelled’ left right and centre these days, there are very few performers in the current landscape that have managed to retain their universal appeal in this current cultural landscape. Unless there is a bombshell that I have missed, it might be fair to say that Tom Hanks is one of the remaining…

One Night In Miami… (2020)

Maybe it says more about the films that I personally seek out, but it feels like the past twelve months has been a big period for high profile stage to screen adaptations. Netflix brought us both The Boys In The Band and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom in 2020, and now Amazon Studios are jumping into…

Promising Young Woman (2020)

Every now and then a film comes along that social media grabs onto and the hype train begins long before the actual release date. Promising Young Woman was definitely one of those films. On the screen, Brits will know Emerald Fennell from her years on beloved BBC drama Call The Midwife, and the wider world…

Pieces Of A Woman (2020)

Happy new year everybody. We all knew that the sombre moods and events of 2020 wouldn’t simply disappear in a cloud of black smoke on the strike of midnight on December 31st, but wow, 2021 really has come along with the intentions of upstaging his older brother in style. The UK is in an even…

Top Ten: Films Of 2020

Well well well, what can one possibly say about 2020 that hasn’t already been said? This has been a year to forget societally, medically, and to a certain extent, cinematically. Many of the year’s big movies were postponed, and from a personal standpoint, many of the big movies that did go ahead proved to be…
