Dumplin’ (2018)

If there are two things that are going to make a film an automatic hell yes for me, it is Dolly Parton and drag queens. As it happens, Netflix’s latest original movie release Dumplin’ promised both. Add in the fact that I still enjoy the novelty of being able to watch a brand new release…

Sorry To Bother You (2018)

Welcome to mid December, otherwise known as the ‘biding time before I potentially lose my mind over Mary Poppins Returns‘ period of my life. However, with recent releases like Disobedience, Suspiria, even going as far back as Widows, it is nice to see that there are still options during the holiday season for those who…

Disobedience (2017)

Do you know what I really hate? When a film comes out in the United States and has already been released on home video before it even makes its way to the big screen over here in the UK. Having read and loved Naomi Alderman’s debut novel Disobedience some time ago, I was massively excited…

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…

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald (2018)

If I remember correctly, 2016’s Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them did enough for me to exclaim that I was excited for the next instalment, but as 2018 ticked over and the release got nearer and nearer, I found that I wasn’t feeling the hype for The Crimes Of Grindelwald like someone with a…

Suspiria (2018)

Of all my cinematic sins, never having seen Dario Argento’s original Suspiria is arguably one of the biggest. Considered a genre masterpiece, the 1977 cult horror classic seems to have passed me by in all my years of film watching. With the knowledge that a reimagining was coming to screens this year, I decided not…
