Mary Queen Of Scots (2018)

Something that any Oh! That Film Blog reader will know about me is that I am a bastard for a musical, but another fact you might not be so familiar with is that I also happen to a bastard for a Tudor! From the first Henry to the final Liz, the Tudor period is one…

Beautiful Boy (2018)

Welcome to part two of the ‘Steve Carell is a serious actor’ double header in 2019. Only a few weeks ago I was slightly bamboozled and perplexed by Welcome To Marwen, the warm up to what I anticipated would be something much more in my personal wheelhouse, Beautiful Boy.

A Fantastic Woman (2017)

To my eternal discredit, I only managed to see two of the five pictures nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at this year’s Oscars.
