Good Boys (2019)

Shout out to all the parents out there struggling through the summer holidays. With August in full swing you are probably starting to run out of ideas for entertaining restless young ones before school comes back over the horizon. A trip to the cinema is always a safe bet, right? A couple of hours in…

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (2019)

From Pulp Fiction to Jackie Brown to the Kill Bills and more, I can honestly say that more than half of the man’s filmography probably ranks inside my top twenty five movies…

Blinded By The Light (2019)

The third remake of a beloved childhood classic of any kind might feel a little over the top at this point, but I think…

Tell It To The Bees (2018)

From Disobedience to Lizzie to The Favourite to Vita & Virginia, it feels like the last year or so has been a better than average time when it comes to complex, interesting stories involving romances between female protagonists. The world of literature is always ripe for a big screen adaptation on this front, and just…
