Tomb Raider

If you are anything like me you would have been certain that no one could fill the shoes of Angelina Jolie in this reboot of Tomb Raider, I can now confirm that we were wrong.   As our staple actors start to age and take more sensible roles I often panic that there isn’t anyone […]

Love Simon

I don’t ever remember getting home from a movie and wanting to watch it immediately again. To say this film is brilliant wouldn’t do it any justice. Love, Simon is far from what I expected. Any film based on a high schooler’s experiences and a cast of almost exclusively ‘school students’, is bound to be […]

Fifty Shades Freed

It’s the final installment diehards have been gagging for and critics have been waiting to smash! Judging by the reactions at the cinema and in print, the critics and even some diehards have done just that. I think in my book, it’s somewhat all unjustified. Obviously the love story takes things to the next level […]

I, Tonya

I,Tonya When I saw the preview for this movie I assumed it would be a bit of a daggy flashback to the early 90’s style of a movie that needed to be drawn out to make it a full movie. Boy, I was wrong! And like the rest of the cinema, I couldn’t get enough. […]

Daddy’s Home 2

Daddy’s Home 2 If you enjoyed Daddy’s home and thought there was nowhere left to take this story line, boy were you wrong! Likewise, if you thought a sequel might not be as funny and may be trying too hard, wrong again! In fact this is quicker and funnier, and the chemistry between the actors […]

Justice League

Could this be the best superhero movie of all time? I think maybe, just maybe, it is! Director Zack Snyder has succeeded where others have recently failed, blending some extremely brilliant yet not cheesy comedy in with the pseudo seriousness of a super hero film. The latest installment from the DC comic franchise runs rings […]

The Snowman

The Snowman It’s widely known that this film hasn’t had rave reviews, and for this I’m quite perplexed and I have to disagree with the harsh feedback. Maybe I’m not as intellectual as the critics and I just love a good crime story? Based on the novel of the same name and part of a […]

Battle of the Sexes

The Battle of the Sexes – The Billie Jean King Story Whilst this movie is based on a story from 44 years ago, it’s still funny, intelligent, moving, and astonishingly as relevant today as it was 44 years ago in more ways than one. Arguably one of the world’s greatest Tennis Players, Billie Jean King […]

Victoria and Abdul

  This film may be set in the early 1900’s but it’s important to realise early on that while authentic, it is far from feeling like some dreary and old film. Rather, it’s every bit as powerful as any modern day romance film.   Victoria and Abdul chronicles the story of Queen Victoria played by […]

The Hitman’s Bodyguard

The Hitman’s Bodyguard This film is a surprisingly funny and entertaining take on the typical dreary action film, but making no mistakes it certainly quenches the thirst of action film addicts. Based on arrested hitman Darius Kincaid (Samuel L Jackson), Kincaid has done a deal to testify against a former leader of Belarus for inhumane treatment […]
