How To Build A Girl (2019)

After scraping around for what to watch for the last few weeks, it seems as though we’ve reached a stage in this cinema lockdown where the big boys are coming to the quarantine party. My next three reviews look set to be for high profile movies that I was always going to be watching in…

Last Christmas (2019)

Anyone who knows me will be able to tell you that when it comes to Christmas movies, I have a very low tolerance threshold. There are only a handful of pictures that I can say I fully love, some critically great like The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Muppet Christmas Carol and Love Actually, and others…

Late Night (2019)

The question of ‘what would you say’ is one I often ponder whilst in the shower or on…

Saving Mr. Banks (2013)

I’ll begin this review by saying that Mary Poppins is, and always will be, my favourite Disney film of all time, quite possibly my favourite film full stop. For as long as I can remember the poster for the movie has been a fixture on my bedroom wall, and I will challenge anyone to a…
