Christopher Robin (2018)

You wait for a Christopher Robin movie, and all of a sudden two come along at once. That’s the famous saying, isn’t it? Last year audiences were treated to Goodbye Christopher Robin, admittedly a film more about A.A. Milne than the son that he made famous, but importantly a film that took an extremely melancholy stance…

The Meg (2018)

My past two cinema trips have been to see small, heavy, sombre British dramas which tackle themes and subject matter that really challenge you and leave you thinking for hours after the credits have rolled. Do you know what the perfect antidote to that is? A big fuck off shark movie starring a big fuck…

The Escape (2017)

I know, I know, this is usually what happens during the week of a big Marvel release, but I’m sorry guys, I couldn’t muster the enthusiasm to go and see Ant-Man And The Wasp!

Though I’ve done my fair share of blockbustering so far this summer, I thought it was about time…

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018)

Titles such as Hereditary, Lady Bird, The Florida Project, Free Fire, Moonlight and 20th Century Women are…

Incredibles 2 (2018)

For some reason, the hype and love for the original Incredibles film was something that kind of passed me by. Don’t get me wrong, I laughed along in the cinema with the rest of you those fourteen years ago, and I can’t profess to being ‘too cool’ for kid’s movies as a 15 year old…
