The Mitchells vs. The Machines (2021)

At this stage in my adult life, I must admit that I am way behind the pace when it comes to keeping up with all of the latest animated features. I’m not particularly proud of it, but I tend to make the effort for each new Disney and Pixar release, and then leave everything else…

The 93rd Annual Academy Awards: Head vs. Heart

We made it guys. We bloody MADE it. In a year that somehow managed to last more than a decade (or so it feels), the COVID-19 pandemic has not managed to curtail the Academy Awards in the same way that it laid waste to so many different ceremonies across 2020. In suck in just before…

The Father (2020)

When the time comes to make one’s way through the annual bunch of Oscar nominated films, I treat the task very much like Pokemon, I gotta catch ’em all! My task for this year is nearly complete, with one of the few ‘major category’ films still to check off the list being Florian Zeller’s The…

Top Ten: Films Of 2019

Some categories are absolutely popping, whilst others feel decidedly dull. No matter what, though, I’ll be there with my…

The Favourite (2018)

Happy New Year everybody! Christmas may have disappeared over the horizon, but for me personally, right now is the most wonderful time of the year. January ticks over and we enter full blown awards season! There are more films I’m excited to see in the next eight weeks than in the whole of the summer,…

TV Corner: Broadchurch (Season 2)

In today’s culture of Netflix and binge watching, it is very rare that I get the opportunity to watch a television series in the weekly serial manner that it was intended. In fact, in the case of Broadchurch, the first season of ITV’s hit detective drama seemed to completely pass me by and it was…
