Midsommar (2019)

It was almost exactly a year ago that I, along with millions of other film lovers, came out of the cinema absolutely shooketh by Ari Aster’s Hereditary. Not only a top class horror film, but also a top class directorial feature debut. As soon as the dust settled post Hereditary, everyone turned their attentions to…

Vita & Virginia (2018)

From her body of work to her personal life and the overall state of her genius mind, Virginia Woolf has always been a figure of fascination in the world of literature and the arts.

Brightburn (2019)

If you happened to catch my Avengers: Endgame review, you will know that I have been on a major super hero movie adventure so far in 2019. With all the Marvel lads now firmly under my belt, the world is officially my oyster. Now felt like a better time than ever to turn the tables…
