Widows (2018)

Let’s get one thing straight, whenever names like Steve McQueen and Viola Davis are involved in a project, you can be sure as hell that I’m going to be there on opening day. Still soaring high from her 2016 Best Supporting Actress Oscar win for Fences, Davis is one of cinema’s most respected and sought…

The Nutcracker And The Four Realms (2018)

Well, Halloween has been and gone, so I guess that means in cinema terms that we have begun our slow and slippery decent in to the world of Christmas movies! If you’re anything like me, then you will have your set staple of festive films that reappear in heavy rotation year after year, but that…

I wouldn’t usually go in for this kind of…

First Man (2018)

There are few things that capture your imagination as a child quite like the thought of a man landing on the moon. With missions to Mars and even further space exploration just over the horizon, it is strange to think that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin set foot on that white circle in the sky…
