Review: Captain Marvel (2019)

I’ll admit that after eleven years and twenty-one movies, I am starting to get a teensy bit bored of the Superhero genre and I’ve found the last few MCU films a little under-whelming on the first viewing. Couple that with all the hype and focus on finally having a female lead** and I actually went…

Top Ten… Irish Actors

I thought it would be a good idea to do a blog post on my favourite Irish actors in celebration of St Patrick’s Day but when doing my shortlist, I realised just how few Irish actors I knew. Therefore, I would like to formally apologise to all the people of Ireland and I hope that…

Review: Isn’t It Romantic (2019)

If you have seen my top ten chick flicks post, then you will probably already have guessed that I absolutely LOVE a good (or bad) rom-com, in fact, the cheesier the better. Unfortunately, in today’s societal climate, admitting to enjoying romantic comedies almost feels like confessing to skinning cats or kicking homeless children. But that…

Series Review: American Gods

American Gods is one of those series that you really want to tell people about but is so difficult to put into words. Adapted from the critically acclaimed Neil Gaiman novel of the same name, American Gods is a twisted blend of fantasy and mythology, a tangled mix of the old and the new. The main storyline…

Review: All Is True (2019)

“Love me or hate me, both are in my favour… If you love me, I’ll always be in your heart… If you hate me, I’ll always be in your mind.” William Shakespeare For some people, the name William Shakespeare conjures up memories of boring English lessons at school, being forced to study texts written in an…

Top Ten… Book-to-Screen Adaptations

When I was younger I would almost always choose to read a book over watching a film, especially when it came to book-to-screen adaptations. I always found that the film never lived up to the standards of the books. Now, I can appreciate books and films separately for the different mediums that they are. That being…

About Me… An A-Z

I have put together a couple of ‘About Me’ posts now, where you can get to know a little more about me (funny that!) but usually they have a movie theme to them. This one is a little different, a little more random, a little more me. Thank you to Espressococo and Paperback Adventures for…

About Me… My Local Area

There are certain places in the world that are frequently used as filming locations for big Hollywood movies. New York and London are typical for their big, dramatic city skylines, whereas countries such as Ireland and Iceland offer wide, sweeping landscapes and breathtaking scenery. However, every now and again, less well known locations are chosen…

Review: Wild Rose (2019)

If you every have the chance to go to a mystery screening, I would totally recommend it. It is the perfect chance to watch something that you would normally pass over. And while you may not always happy with the chosen film, sometimes you are introduced to an absolute gem. For me, Wild Rose was one…

Review: The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019)

When the idea of a LEGO movie was first announced, there was a feeling that Hollywood were kind of scraping the bottom of the idea barrel. It was a stretch to even imagine how the humble LEGO brick could be turned into a viable concept for a film. Against all odds, The LEGO Movie was a hit…
