Review: Long Shot (2019)

There’s been so much great stuff on TV and Netflix lately that I’ve kind of been neglecting the cinema a little bit. Therefore, I’ve told Mark that this month we need to catch up a little and make up for lost time. With the sun coming out and the weather warming up, there’s nothing better…

Review: Hellboy (2019)

When I started writing this post, I was all ready to go on a rant about the lack of originality in cinema these days and how reboots and remakes are saturating the market; but then I took a closer look at my previous posts and of the twenty-two that I have written so far, only…

Review: Pet Sematary (2019)

If you’ve read some of my other stuff, you may already know that horror is one of my least favourite film genres. Whilst I do enjoy a good psychological thriller, more often than not horror films have no plot and an abundance of unnecessary jump-scares. Thankfully, the ‘King of Horror’ , Stephen King seems to…

Review: Dumbo (2019)

Am I the only one who is getting a little tired of all these live-action remakes of Disney classics? Whilst they are a good way of bringing classic stories to a new audience, a big part of me feels as though these live-action re-imaginings are somewhat undermining the many, many people, with incredible talent and…

Review: Tau (2018)

If you have seen my reviews for Close and Polar, you will already know that Tau was the third film we watched in a Netflix binge one night, but unlike the other two, I had not heard or seen anything about this A.I. thriller beforehand, although with Gary Oldman and Ed Skrein in the mix,…

March Wrap-Up and April Targets

Looking back, I am surprised and a little disappointed that I only saw four films at the cinema throughout the whole of March, however a full re-watch of both American Gods and Game of Thrones may have had something to do with it. That being said, I still managed to write twelve new posts and…

Review: Polar (2019)

Cinema, like all art forms, is subjective and personal, whilst the masses may love a film, you may hate it, or vice versa. The second film in our latest Netflix binge, Polar, is a perfect example of why it is important to take reviews with a pinch of salt, and make up your own mind….

Review: Close (2019)

Netflix are continuing to make their mark on the world of cinema. It’s almost impossible just to keep track of all their original releases , let alone finding the time to watch them all, but the other day, me and Mark had a proper sofa day and got through three of them; Close, Polar and…

Review: Fisherman’s Friends (2019)

Every now and again, in amongst the Hollywood heavyweights, a quintessential British drama shines like a diamond in the rough, comforting in it’s familiarity like your own bed after a long holiday. Often these films are few and far between but the next few of weeks sees not one, but two British musical dramas hit…

Review: Us (2019)

Whilst I love a good psychological thriller, I am not a fan of stereotypical jump-scare films that have little-to-no plot. This means that the horror genre is a little bit of minefield for me, and one that will usually get pushed to the side in favour of a less hide-under-my-coat film. That being said, Jordan…
