Hereditary (2018)

Have you noticed the change in attitude towards horror over the last few years? The majority of the 2000s were a rough time in the genre for anyone who wasn’t a fan of the gore porn offerings of Saw, Hostel, and god forbid, A Serbian Film. What makes for a fun sleepover experience doesn’t stand the…

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018)

Looking back at my review for 2015’s Jurassic World, it is clear that though I didn’t fall in love with the film, it provided more than enough action and nostalgia to keep me entertained throughout. Three years down the line and it is time to head back in to the park for another dino disaster,…

On Chesil Beach (2017)

From the lows of The Good Son and The Innocent to the highs of The Cement Garden and Atonement, it would be fair to say that author Ian McEwan has experienced mixed fortunes when it comes to film adaptations of his literary works. Widely regarded as one of the best British writers this side of…

I can’t say that I am suffering from Disney induced Star Wars fatigue just yet, but I will admit that Solo, the latest in the ‘A Star Wars Story‘ spin-off series of films, was the first of the new batch that I wasn’t fully on the hype train for. Whilst I wasn’t particularly excited to…

Deadpool 2 (2018)

2016’s Deadpool will always hold a fun and special place in my heart, because it was the R-rated comic book romp two years ago that opened me up to a new kind of appreciation for a genre that I have little to no real connection with. Besides the campy, unusual Tim Burton era of Batman…

Tully (2018)

It’s fair to say that when your very first feature film script picks up the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, the rest of your career is bound to be looked at through a stronger lens. That certainly seems to have been the case for Diablo Cody. 2007’s Juno hurled her in to the limelight,…

Mary And The Witch’s Flower (2017)

My relationship with Japanese anime is what one might call ‘basic’. I, along with every other child of the time, was fully swept along with the Pokemon phenomenon wave of the late 90s/early 00s, and in the following years have sampled and enjoyed the highlights of the iconic Studio Ghibli like Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Howl’s…
