Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga (2020)

If you don’t know me outside of this here film blog, then it’s more than likely that you don’t know that one of my biggest passions behind of cinema is a little something called the Eurovision Song Contest. For more than 25 of my 30 years on this earth, I’ve spent one night a year…

Fanny Lye Deliver’d (2019)

If you know me, then you will know that my two biggest interests at school were English and History. Translating that into my passion for film, it’s fair to say that I’m a bit of a sucker for any kind of historical, period piece that gives audiences something a little bit different than what they…

Resistance (2020)

With news today that cinemas are set to reopen sometime in July, this potentially marks the beginning of the end for my journey into the wonderful world of VOD! Before I can finally get back into the swing of a proper cinematic experience, there are still a few weeks worth of random releases to get…

The King Of Staten Island (2020)

I’ve been to New York twice in my life. On both of those occasions, I boarded the Staten Island ferry, took nice pictures of the Statue of Liberty, walked to the other side of the port, and got straight back on the boat. That is the entirety of my relationship with New York’s least fashionable…

Da 5 Bloods (2020)

I’ll be the first to admit that as someone who considers themselves a true film lover, I don’t pay near enough attention to directors compared to actors. I can probably count on both hands the number of directors that signal an automatic watch for me, whereas my personal list of must watch performers is vast.…

A Rainy Day In New York (2019)

2020 is really going out of its way to be one of the craziest years in history. Seismic changes are happening in various corners of the globe, many for the better, all whilst we battle a life changing viral pandemic. Shit’s wild, right? I thought why not add more mayhem to the mix by, perhaps…

The High Note (2020)

I’m at the point now where it’s getting more and more difficult to say the same thing about lockdown and watching things at home in different ways over and over again, so let’s just get down to it shall we? Previously scheduled for a theatrical release on May 8th, Nisha Ganatra’s The High Note became…

The Lovebirds (2020)

If there is one company that has thrived during this current pandemic, it’s bloody Netflix. With just ourselves and our remotes for company at home, the vast majority of us have turned to streaming for our film fixes. Originally scheduled for a theatrical release in April, things didn’t quite go to plan for Michael Showalter’s The…

Never Rarely Sometimes Always (2020)

I don’t know about you, but the general rule for me is that if a picture makes waves at the Sundance Film Festival, it’s pretty much a certainty that I am going to be a fan. From Little Miss Sunshine to Donnie Darko to Whiplash and many more, some of my all time favourites have…

Capone (2020)

I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get used to this ‘new films from the sofa’ way of life. Sure, nothing beats the atmosphere of a pitch black cinema with the perfect sound, but I have to say I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how smooth this VOD era transition has been so far.…
