Dark Waters (2019)

From Erin Brockovich to Silkwood to All The President’s Men and more, it’s fair to say that the sub-genre of the ‘whistleblower’ movie has proven to be one of the most compelling and gripping over the years. As average joe movie watching citizen’s, we love the prospect of witnessing a cover up be exposed in…

Like A Boss (2020)

Welcome to post Oscars season, folks. We are well and truly in the depths of that peculiar time in the cinematic calendar when, honestly, going to see a movie is an absolute lottery.

The Lighthouse (2019)
