It Chapter Two (2019)

It feels like a very short two years ago that the 2017 remake of Stephen Kings It hit the big screen. I wonder how many of us at the time expected it to be as huge as it was? After release, the film very quickly became the highest grossing horror movie of all time, seemingly…

Molly’s Game (2017)

Happy New Year, and welcome to Oh! That Film Blog in 2018! Same old reviews, brand new movies, the first of which is one that I had been looking forward to for some time. To my discredit, the writer of a film isn’t usually a feature that I take in to large account when making…

Miss Sloane (2016)

After what feels like five minutes after watching Jessica Chastain in The Zookeeper’s Wife, here I am returned to the same theatre to see her in another release. Pulling an Amy Adams of her very own (both Nocturnal Animals and Arrival came out in quick succession), I wasn’t too mad about it, as I have recently…

From battle field narratives to Holocaust narratives and everything in between, the world changing period has provided the backdrop for…

The Martian (2015)

This year, it appears that the sci-fi cinema audiences are swapping Matthew McConaughey for Matt Damon in Ridley Scott’s big screen adaptation of Andy Weir’s 2001 novel The Martian. With…

A Most Violent Year (2014)

My latest cinema trip can be literally described as a battle of the Oscars. The two choices at the top of the list this week were both films starring Oscar Isaac, sci-fi thriller Ex Machina or crime drama A Most Violent Year. Having little previous knowledge of either picture or how they had been initially…
