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.

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…

Review: Green Book (2019)

There is a lot of talk online about Green Book being an ‘Oscar-baiting’ film, and that is probably a little true. It does have a lot of the elements that are considered to be typical for films deemed to be playing the Oscars system; a biographical picture that addresses a strong social issue, (in this case,…

Review: If Beale Street Could Talk (2019)

Our latest jaunt to the cinema was for another mystery screening, the selected movie this time was If Beale Street Could Talk, the Oscar nominated film from director Barry Jenkins. I’ll be honest, going in I did not really have any idea what this film was about but I had heard a lot of talk about Regina King’s performance…

Review: Mary Queen of Scots (2019)

Anyone with even a basic knowledge of British Royal history will know the stories of the Tudors. Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I have almost been done to death by cinema and TV alike. What people may not be familiar with is the story of Mary Stewart, Queen of Scots. I myself remember very little…

Review: Glass (2019)

Let me make one thing clear from the beginning, if you are expecting to see a Marvel or DC type of superhero movie, you are going to be very disappointed. This is more of a psychological thriller masquerading as a superhero flick. It’s not about big action sequences, costumes made of spandex and good conquering…

Review: Vice (2019)

Our latest jaunt to the cinema was for a mystery movie screening so we had no idea what was coming when the lights dimmed. If you every have the chance to go to a mystery screening, do it. It’s the perfect chance to broaden your horizons and experience something you may normally overlook. This particular…

Review: Stan & Ollie (2019)

Before I begin my review of the film, I have to confess, and apologise, for a couple of things.  Firstly – I hate slapstick comedy. I understand why some people enjoy it, it’s pure, simple and silly humour, I just find it a little childish. Ironically, I love a good fart joke! To each, their own I suppose. Secondly –…
