Jojo Rabbit (2019)

Happy New Year everybody! We made it! 2020, can you believe it? Given the way of the world in recent years, the irony is not lost on me that my first review of the decade is for a film set in Nazi Germany. I was hoping, however, that Taika Waititi would be able to bring…

Top Ten: Films Of 2019

Well, here we are. Not just the end of a year in film, but also the end of a decade! Having started the blog in late 2012, it feels like the best part of the 2010s marked my transition from casual fan to full blown cinephile. In 2019 I racked up 85 visits to the…

Marriage Story (2019)

Did you know that it has been 22 years since a film picked up both Best Actor and Best Actress at the Academy Awards? Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt enjoyed a double win back in 1997 for As Good As It Gets, and in the 90-plus year history of the awards ,there have only been…

Avengers: Endgame (2019)

WHAT IS THIS, I HEAR YOU SCREAM? Amy Andrews, of Oh! That Film Blog, writing an actual review of an actual proper Marvel movie? Let me tell you, kids, I’ve been on a pretty big adventure. After finally admitting that this is a pop culture footprint too large to be ignorant of, I set about…

Isle Of Dogs (2018)

Perhaps more than any other filmmaker right now, or over the last few decades, even if you aren’t fluent in cinema, you can tell when you are watching a Wes Anderson picture. The man’s signature style has become so synonymous with quirk and quality, not just for the curious aesthetic style and whimsical sensibility that…

Rough Night (2017)

For somebody who is usually so snobbish about films, I must admit that I harbour a soft spot for the female centric, vulgar, gross out comedies that have been enjoying something of an Indian summer ever since the runaway success of Bridesmaids back in 2011. Though there are some truly great examples of the genre,…

Ghost In The Shell (2017)

I have to admit that I didn’t know a single thing about the Ghost In The Shell universe before this week, but being the good film student that I like to think I am, I did my homework and watched the original 1995 animated feature before going to see this Hollywood remake. I’m not going to…

The Jungle Book (2016)

I’ll be honest. When I first heard of Disney’s intentions to make a live action/CGI remake of the 1967 animated classic The Jungle Book, there were very few, if any at all, positive thoughts that came to mind. Not only is The Jungle Book one of my very favourite Disney films of all time, but…

Lucy (2014)

Lucy, the latest offering from acclaimed French director Luc Besson is a cerebral science-fiction thriller starring Scarlett Johansson that explores the myth that humans only use ten percent of their brain capacity, and the consequences that might occur should further percentage use be unlocked. My relationship with sci-fi in cinema is very much routed in…

Her (2013)

The primary aspect that attracted me to Her was my own rather time consuming addiction and dedication to technology. I have to admit that I am a slave to a certain fruit named corporation, owning a MacBook Pro, iPad Air, iPod Touch and iPhone 5s combined with numerous other electrical devices that satisfy my need…
