Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019)

When it comes to Pokémon, let’s just say that I was the perfect age to be placed in the thick of the phenomenon. I played the Game Boy games, I collected the cards, I even owned a bunch of those blue pebbles that hardly anyone knew what to do actually do with, it was a…

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile (2019)

For as long as I can remember, I have been morbidly obsessed with serial killers. The thing about being a true crime fanatic is that the worse the crimes are, the more you are drawn to their details, and in the world of serial killings it doesn’t get much worse than Ted Bundy. The notorious…

Vox Lux (2018)

It’s fair to say that the last six or so months has well and truly spoilt us when it comes to musical based, female centric rise and fall type film narratives. We got something relatively traditional in the form of the fourth version of A Star Is Born, something more rustic and raw in the…

Us (2019)

It feels like only yesterday when Jordan Peele came along and knocked us all sideways with the innovative, Oscar winning genius of Get Out. Looking back on my review for the 2017 hit, I’m surprised by how much my appreciation for the film has grown since then, with many of the mixed feelings I expressed…
