Never Rarely Sometimes Always (2020)

I don’t know about you, but the general rule for me is that if a picture makes waves at the Sundance Film Festival, it’s pretty much a certainty that I am going to be a fan. From Little Miss Sunshine to Donnie Darko to Whiplash and many more, some of my all time favourites have…

Capone (2020)

I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get used to this ‘new films from the sofa’ way of life. Sure, nothing beats the atmosphere of a pitch black cinema with the perfect sound, but I have to say I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how smooth this VOD era transition has been so far.…

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…

The Assistant (2019)

Hello again, hope everyone out there is still healthy and hasn’t ‘completed’ Netflix yet. It’s coming up to two months now since I saw a film in the cinema, probably the longest theatre-less stretch since childhood! I am happy, however, that there seems to be a regular and steady flow of home releases to enjoy…

Les Misérables (2019)

Fun fact; Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables was one of the first films I ever covered on this blog way back when I was fresher faced, less cynical, and judging by the content of the review itself, significantly less adept at writing! With those memories and a quick jolt “oh fuck, I’m thirty” running through the…

Cuck (2019)

As the lockdown continues, each week’s new releases are getting increasingly thinner on the ground. But, with very few things happening in everyday life to remind what day it is, I’ve started to turn to this blog as a means of tracking time! One new review equals one new week in our current dystopia, and…

Who You Think I Am (2019)

With most cinematic activity reduced to a minimum for the last few weeks and for the foreseeable future, one actress seems to have bucked that trend and unintentionally become the icon of my isolation; Juliette Binoche! With The Truth marking my first review of a VOD release back at the end of March, Binoche is…

Pink Wall (2019)

You know the dude at the end of the Titanic whose main job was just to row around in the ice shouting “IS THERE ANYBODY ALIVE OUT THERE?”. Yeah, that’s pretty much where I’m at mentally as we enter into another day (I’ve lost count) of lockdown. Curzon Home Cinema continues to offer me a…

System Crasher (2019)

This time two months ago, I expected the weekend of March 27th to be the weekend I got to see Disney’s anticipated remake of Mulan. Well, things being as they are, Mulan will have to wait. Coming to the rescue yet again this week is Curzon Home Cinema, giving me a couple of interesting options,…

The Truth (2019)

Hello, anybody out there? It’s only been a week since my last post, but I feel like I’ve aged about eight years. With the UK now in full lockdown, any kind of new film experience I am going to have for the foreseeable future is going to have to come via the internet, and coming…
