The Lighthouse (2019)

Here’s the deal, folks. I’m sick, like edge of death overreacting flu kind of sick. The perfect way to be right at the start of Oscars week, huh? As a result, I’m afraid my take on The Lighthouse might not be the most nuanced or intricate, but hey, I’m here, so I might as well…

Richard Jewell (2019)

I like to consider myself someone who is relatively clued up on big historical moments, but I have to admit that the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing was something that completely passed me by. In my defence, I was only 7! Of course, there is nothing like a good biographical drama to fill in some…

The Personal History Of David Copperfield (2019)

At this point in the film game it’s fair to say that we have all seen our fair share of Charles Dickens adaptations.

From a personal point of view, it always amazes me how generation upon generation seems to be…

Uncut Gems (2019)

I’ve had a long think about it today, and I honestly think that Mr. Deeds might be the only Adam Sandler film that I have ever seen the whole way through. And let’s be honest, I only watched that for Winona Ryder. I’m well aware that Sandler is a legend of sorts, but not one…
