Clemency (2019)

Just the one review from me this week, I’m in the middle of recovering from laser eye surgery! Before I went under the knife (so to speak!), I managed to catch Clemency, a film that will forever be remembered by myself as the last motion picture I ever had to watch with the help of…

The Old Guard (2020)

From Atomic Blonde to Mad Max: Fury Road, one of my very favourite cinematic tropes in recent years has been Charlize Theron kicking the absolute shit out of people. She seems to be one of the few actresses of her generation who has been able to jump from action to drama and back again (with…

Proxima (2019)

It’s not a genre that I necessarily seek out, but there is something about the world of the ‘space movie’ that always manages to tempt me back in for one reason or another. I wouldn’t proclaim to be a sci-fi expert by any means, but some of my most memorable cinema experiences over the last…

Back Roads (2018)

The way things have gone this year, nothing says ‘2020’ more than a movie originally released 2018 finally deciding to make its way over to the UK in the form of an online offering. I’m not sure why it has taken Alex Pettyfer’s directorial debut so long to make the jump across the Atlantic Ocean,…

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga (2020)

If you don’t know me outside of this here film blog, then it’s more than likely that you don’t know that one of my biggest passions behind of cinema is a little something called the Eurovision Song Contest. For more than 25 of my 30 years on this earth, I’ve spent one night a year…

Fanny Lye Deliver’d (2019)

If you know me, then you will know that my two biggest interests at school were English and History. Translating that into my passion for film, it’s fair to say that I’m a bit of a sucker for any kind of historical, period piece that gives audiences something a little bit different than what they…

Resistance (2020)

With news today that cinemas are set to reopen sometime in July, this potentially marks the beginning of the end for my journey into the wonderful world of VOD! Before I can finally get back into the swing of a proper cinematic experience, there are still a few weeks worth of random releases to get…

The King Of Staten Island (2020)

I’ve been to New York twice in my life. On both of those occasions, I boarded the Staten Island ferry, took nice pictures of the Statue of Liberty, walked to the other side of the port, and got straight back on the boat. That is the entirety of my relationship with New York’s least fashionable…

Da 5 Bloods (2020)

I’ll be the first to admit that as someone who considers themselves a true film lover, I don’t pay near enough attention to directors compared to actors. I can probably count on both hands the number of directors that signal an automatic watch for me, whereas my personal list of must watch performers is vast.…

A Rainy Day In New York (2019)

2020 is really going out of its way to be one of the craziest years in history. Seismic changes are happening in various corners of the globe, many for the better, all whilst we battle a life changing viral pandemic. Shit’s wild, right? I thought why not add more mayhem to the mix by, perhaps…
