Bombshell (2019)

Any long time reader of Oh! That Film Blog will be well aware of the fact that when it comes to choosing films to watch , I am very much actor driven over anything else. The prospect of a picture starring three firm favourites; Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie, was a great cause…

The Goldfinch (2019)

Along with every other avid reader in 2013, I made my way through Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch. The novel received critical acclaim from pretty much every corner of the literary world, winning the esteemed Pulitzer Prize along the way.

The film industry, over the years, has taken great pleasure in ruining the childhoods of so many by producing below par, off message episodes of beloved fictional characters that individuals and sometimes entire…

Before I Go To Sleep (2014)

The last time I went to the cinema to watch Nicole Kidman was back in May for the sleep inducing, not even memorable enough to be a classed as a car crash, Grace Of Monaco. Still a fan of the Oscar winning Australian though through the strength of works such as The Hours and, perhaps…
