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…

Parasite (2019)

Something really awesome happened last night. For the first time in its 92 year history, a foreign language film won Best Picture at the Academy Awards. When you consider just how many incredible international films have graced the big screen since the 1920s, this is an amazing achievement, and along with statuettes for Best Original…

The 92nd Annual Academy Awards: Head vs. Heart

That’s right, it’s that time of the year again! The time when my BFF and I sit underneath 46 blankets infant of my TV from 1am to 5am to see who takes home the most coveted prizes in the movie business. Oscar night complete with too much food is a long standing tradition in my…

A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood (2019)

When it comes to absorbing the culture of another country’s entertainment history, it’s fair to say that the United States has a reach across the entire world. There are many iconic American shows and figures that I hold dear to my own and who had an impact on me growing up on the other side…

The Lighthouse (2019)

Here’s the deal, folks. I’m sick, like edge of death overreacting flu kind of sick. The perfect way to be right at the start of Oscars week, huh? As a result, I’m afraid my take on The Lighthouse might not be the most nuanced or intricate, but hey, I’m here, so I might as well…

Richard Jewell (2019)

I like to consider myself someone who is relatively clued up on big historical moments, but I have to admit that the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing was something that completely passed me by. In my defence, I was only 7! Of course, there is nothing like a good biographical drama to fill in some…
