Two New Releases I Enjoyed: I, Tonya (2017) & Lady Bird (2017)

A Mixed Bag at the Cinema: The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) & Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017)
So recently I’ve been making quick review posts about films I’ve seen at the cinema; films I’ve grouped together as being super fantastic or super disappointing. This time around, I thought I’d post about a bit of a mixed bag – one film I loved so much I wanted to hug it to death, and […]
Two New Releases I Didn’t Enjoy: The Snowman (2017); Justice League (2017)
I’ve been seeing lots of films at the cinema recently! But amongst the many hits, there can also be some significant misses. Here are brief, paragraph-long reviews on two films I saw recently, which I’d rather not spend any more time on, to be honest; and you shouldn’t either.

Whilst mother! was […]

Two New Releases: Arrival (2016); Hidden Figures (2016).
Despite my sluggish rate of posting film reviews recently due to insane work life and trying to find some time to sleep, I actually did find the time to watch two new films at the cinema recently – two Oscar-nominated films, no less. And somewhat in celebration of International Womens’ Day on the 8th of […]
Two New Releases: The Edge of Seventeen (2016); Moonlight (2016).
I haven’t been watching too many new releases lately, and as a result, I’m woefully behind on having any awareness of the films that have been nominated for Oscars this year. I have, however, seen two new films recently, and thought I would compile them into one post – two films, two reviews consisting of […]
