After The Wedding (2019)

With the first of what might be four reviews in the next seven days, I think I can safely state that the lazy days of the summer blockbusters are well and truly done for the year! As the superheroes start to subside, what feels like dozens of potentially interesting releases start to hit the screens…

Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)

Up until about six months ago, I was almost certain that I was done with the Terminator universe for good. Having been sufficiently underwhelmed by Terminator Genisys back in 2015, I felt it was probably time to call it a day on this particular beloved franchise.

The Last Black Man In San Francisco (2019)

Something I have come to realise in my film watching experience is that if a film does well at Sundance, then it tends to do well with my personally as well. Having picked up both Best Director and a Special Jury Award at this year’s festival, it’s fair to say that The Last Black Man…

The Goldfinch (2019)

Along with every other avid reader in 2013, I made my way through Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch. The novel received critical acclaim from pretty much every corner of the literary world, winning the esteemed Pulitzer Prize along the way. Being a fan of Tartt’s previous work, I was excited to devour the novel, but in…
