Pink Wall (2019)

You know the dude at the end of the Titanic whose main job was just to row around in the ice shouting “IS THERE ANYBODY ALIVE OUT THERE?”. Yeah, that’s pretty much where I’m at mentally as we enter into another day (I’ve lost count) of lockdown. Curzon Home Cinema continues to offer me a…

System Crasher (2019)

This time two months ago, I expected the weekend of March 27th to be the weekend I got to see Disney’s anticipated remake of Mulan. Well, things being as they are, Mulan will have to wait. Coming to the rescue yet again this week is Curzon Home Cinema, giving me a couple of interesting options,…

The Truth (2019)

Hello, anybody out there? It’s only been a week since my last post, but I feel like I’ve aged about eight years. With the UK now in full lockdown, any kind of new film experience I am going to have for the foreseeable future is going to have to come via the internet, and coming…

Misbehaviour (2020)

Well, I think it’s safe to say that the world we live in has been turned on its head in recent weeks. With what seems like a full lockdown incoming in the UK, my local cinema has shut its doors for the foreseeable future. That wasn’t before, however, I managed to slip in for one…

Military Wives (2019)

I’ll be completely honest; I’m a lover of all types of music, but I have to say that choirs comprised of military wives are not a genre that enjoys a regular rotation in my Spotify playlists. That being said, it’s fair to say that pretty much everyone in the UK is familiar with the real…

Onward (2020)

Is it just me, or has this latest Pixar release surfaced with absolutely no fanfare whatsoever? When I say I had absolutely no idea what I was in for with Onward, I mean I hadn’t even seen a trailer, I’d barely seen a poster, and until I was physically at the cinema, I thought there…

True History Of The Kelly Gang (2019)

Did you know that one of the first feature films ever made chose Ned Kelly as its subject? 1906’s The Story Of The Kelly Gang used more film reel than any other picture had at that point in history, and in the following century the attraction of the infamous Australian outlaw remained strong with a…

Portrait Of A Lady On Fire (2019)

Lads, I’m not even going to beat around the bush with this one. Portrait Of A Lady On Fire is a film that I have been excited about for a very, very long time. Ever since winning Best Screenplay and the Queer Palm at Cannes in May of 2019, the hype machine revved into full…

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. There are weird kid’s movies around, there are unheralded horror movies around, and there are most definitely comedies of varying successes around.…
