Operation Finale (2018)

You know the drill by now here at Oh! That Film Blog. Nine times out of ten, in the week when a big Marvel release happens, I can’t resist the temptation to look the other way. In my defence this time, it seems like Venom hasn’t been getting the usual fanfare that the studio has…

Annihilation (2018)

It would be fair to say that Alex Garland’s latest release Annihilation has come to represent a massive shift in the way that major motion pictures are now handling their release options. The intellectual science-fiction adventure was given a cinema release in the USA and China, but due to creative conflicts and a decision not…

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017)

Well, here we go again! In what has become my new favourite biennial Christmas tradition, Star Wars is back with another instalment of its main franchise series.

A Most Violent Year (2014)

My latest cinema trip can be literally described as a battle of the Oscars. The two choices at the top of the list this week were both films starring Oscar Isaac, sci-fi thriller Ex Machina or crime drama A Most Violent Year. Having little previous knowledge of either picture or how they had been initially…
