Charlie’s Angels (2019)

Without really realising it, it feels like the 2000 iteration of Charlie’s Angels became a formative part of my tweenhood. Released when I was 12 years old, it hit the sweet spot for a fun action adventure featuring some seriously cool leading ladies, not to mention the killer soundtrack that I still bump to this…

Knives Out (2019)

It’s fair to say that we are coming up to the time of the year where a trip to the cinema might need to be one that can be enjoyed by the entire family. If you weren’t a fan of Star Wars and didn’t want to experience the anticipated weirdness of Cats this holiday season,…

The Report (2019)

I don’t know about you, but I have a real soft spot for political scandal and corruption films.
