Waves (2019)

In the run up to awards season, one name that I expected to see mentioned a lot more than it has been was Waves. Yet another interesting A24 project, the film had been on my radar for months, and by all accounts my expectations were high thanks to the reputation of the distributor and the…

Bombshell (2019)

Any long time reader of Oh! That Film Blog will be well aware of the fact that when it comes to choosing films to watch , I am very much actor driven over anything else. The prospect of a picture starring three firm favourites; Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie, was a great cause…

However, having said that, I have always thought that despite its numerous outings on both the small and the big screen, Louisa…

Cats (2019)

Okay, before we begin, I need to get something off my chest. As stated on this blog many times in the past, I am a true bastard for a musical, but I must admit that Cats is something that I have never been able to get my head around. I’ve seen it on stage and…
