The Day Shall Come (2019)

When thinking about the current social and political climates in pretty much every corner of the world these days, it’s probably fair to say that if you didn’t find the time to laugh about it, you would never stop crying. This is where satire can come in and bridge the gap for us. Having already…

A Simple Favor (2018)

It would be fair to say that director Paul Feig has been very much at the forefront of a female centric comedy films for the past decade. With films like Bridesmaids, The Heat, Spy and Ghostbusters to his name, it is clear that Feig is in his element when collaborating with talented actresses, telling funny…

Pitch Perfect 3 (2017)

My relationship with the Pitch Perfect franchise has been a long and tumultuous one. Back in 2012, an overly harsh review of the first instalment was one of my earliest posts on Oh! That Film Blog.

Since the show’s ending in 2004, Aniston has been something…

Into The Woods (2014)

For a lover of musicals like myself, it was always a bit of an annoyance that the Stephen Sondheim classic Into The Woods had never been given the full big screen treatment. Up to this point, a made for television 1991 broadcast of the majority of the stage show’s original cast was the best the…
