Eighth Grade (2018)

You know how much I hate it when the UK gets shafted by film releases and has to wait ages and AGES to see movies that have been out in the US for months? Well, Eighth Grade might just be the worst case of this for some time. With an initial release date of July…

Bel Canto (2018)

According to this very film blog, it has been more than a calendar year since I last saw Julianne Moore in a movie (Wonderstruck, if you were curious). I think we can all agree that this is far too long to go without enjoying one of Hollywood’s most talented stars, and even though Bel Canto…

Greta (2018)

Any long time reader of Oh! That Film Blog will know that I have an aversion to anything in cinema that is overly twee or quaint, and because of this, my instinctive love and fandom for Isabelle Huppert is nothing short of rampant. The iconic French actress has made a career out of revelling in…

Mid90s (2018)

I might be turning thirty at the end of this year, but one thing that I don’t think will ever change is the love that I have for coming-of-age stories. Whether in TV, film or literature, there is something about seeing those tumultuous, turbulent stages of a person’s life unfold that always manages to capture…

Wild Rose (2018)

It feels like only five minutes ago that the world was obsessed with A Star Is Born. I don’t know about you, but I can’t help but feel like Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s lovefest seems to have fallen off a cliff in terms of cultural footprint and longevity. With the exception of Shallow still…

The Sisters Brothers (2018)

I’ll be honest, if I’m going to be tempted to watch a western these days, it has to have the promise of something a little bit extra, a little bit different from the norm. I’ve seen enough standard Wild West, prospector journeys at this point, it’s just not a universe that gets me running to…

Out Of Blue (2018)

I’m sorry guys, I really am. I got as far as having my seat booked for Dumbo, but one final watch of the trailer sealed it for me, I just can’t bring myself to experience that kind of heartbreak all over again. Fool me once, Disney, fool me once. I’m busy preparing myself for the…

Ben Is Back (2018)

Have you noticed the close run battle that is currently going on in the younger generation of up and coming leading men in Hollywood? I’m talking, of course, about the similar career trajectories of Timothée Chalamet and Lucas Hedges. The two actors have both tried their hand at coming of age same sex themed stories…

The Kindergarten Teacher (2018)

More than any other period in the cinematic calendar, the few months following the Oscars is absolutely the strangest time when it comes to movie releases. Not only are the theatres more full of foreign language films and unheralded indies than in the summer, autumn or winter, in the UK especially, we are treated to…

Everybody Knows (2018)

You know the drill by now guys. Whenever there is a big Marvel release, Amy side steps the crowds and slips in to a small screen to see something unheralded instead. I wish Brie Larson and Captain Marvel all the best, but honestly, it’s just not my cup of tea! This early 2019 edition of…
