Series Review: Unbelievable (2019)

One afternoon, I was bored and just flicking through Netflix looking for something to watch when I stumbled across this limited series, Unbelievable, which turned out to be one of those shows that you just can’t stop watching, and with only eight episodes, it’s the perfect length for a weekend binge-watch. Based on true events,…

Review: Joker (2019)

One of the things I enjoy most about cinema is that it goes through phases, with interesting trends developing over time. Where some drag on far too long (I’m talking about you – unnecessary remakes), others are a little more fleeting, and over the last eighteen months or so, some great trends have started to…

Review: Ready Or Not (2019)

I first watched this film back in early September at an advanced screening but my blogging slump meant that it’s been sitting, half-written, in my drafts for a month! So better late than never, here is my thoughts on the comedy-horror, Ready Or Not. The film sees young bride, Grace, (Samara Weaving) about to marry…

Review: I Used To Be Normal: A Boyband Fangirl Story (2019)

Last month I was lucky enough to have been asked to write an independent review for the film ‘Woodstock Or Bust’, you can check out my review here. This month, I’ve been asked to review the documentary I Used To Be Normal which I actually really enjoyed and would totally recommend. The documentary from director…

Review: Woodstock Or Bust (2019)

It’s the summer of 1969 and two aspiring teenage singer-songwriters Meryl (Meg DeLacy) and Lorian (Willow Shields) are frustrated by their lack of prospects, tired of playing at retirement homes and birthday parties, the two best friends are looking to get some bigger gigs. An advert for Woodstock Music Festival inspires a road trip to…

Review: The Great Hack (2019)

At risk of making myself sound like an old Grandma on her rocking chair, I am of an age where I can remember how new the internet was. That awful dialling tone when I wanted to do research for homework, chatting to school friends on MSN, and waiting FOREVER if you wanted to download or…

Review: The Lion King (2019)

In the past I have moaned a lot about the sheer number of remakes, reboots and unnecessary sequels that are being churned out at the moment, and it seems that Disney are one of the worst culprits. The thing is, as frustrated as I am by this fact, I, along with everyone else, will trudge…

Review: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)

Who could have possibly imagined that a simple film about street racing would lead to a franchise spanning eighteen years, and counting! Admittedly, there was a rocky patch following the third film, Tokyo Drift, but the F&F franchise shifted gear (eh!!) and came back stronger than ever. I can’t immediately recall the last film to…

Review – Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

Marvel Studios are the modern-day Pavlov, they ring their new release bell and the masses come running, myself included. After being both underwhelmed and rather disappointed with Avengers: Endgame I really fancied a bit of a break from the MCU but Far From Home is the final installment of both Phase 3, and the ‘Infinity…

Blogger Recognition Award 2019

Forget the Oscars, it feels as though awards season has come early! Over the last few weeks, I have been lucky enough to receive nominations for three different blogging awards, which is incredibly humbling. It’s amazing to know that people read and like my stuff enough to consider me, especially when there are SO MANY…

Liebster Award 2019

Just knowing that people read your blog is amazing, so receiving an award of any kind is definitely the cherry on top. For this award, I was nominated by the lovely Charli over at Life With Charli, so get on over there and check her blog out. So, what is the ‘Liebster Award’? The Liebster…

Mystery Blogger Award

If you are a member of the blogging community or you have read my Sunshine Blogger Award post then you will already know that there are awards given to bloggers, by bloggers, in recognition of their work. And trust me, there is a lot of time and effort that goes into creating and maintaining a…

Review: Murder Mystery (2019)

I will hold my hands up and admit that all of Adam Sandler’s movies fall very firmly into the B-movie category and Murder Mystery is no exception. However, sometimes a hard-hitting, thought provoking intellectual masterpiece is not what you want when you fancy a good old fashioned duvet day, and in that respects, Sandler is…

Series Review: Stranger Things Season 3

Typically, I am usually a little late when it comes to catching new series; I didn’t get into Game of Thrones until just before the fourth season, I did a massive binge-watch of Vikings ready for season 5 and I hadn’t even heard of Peaky Blinders until last year. But Stranger Things is one that…

Review: Toy Story 4 (2019)

I’m sure I am not alone in thinking that Toy Story 3 was the perfect end to a beautiful and incredibly moving trilogy, so when Pixar Studios announced a fourth installment, I admit, I was both angry and disappointed, thinking Pixar had turned to the cash-grabbing dark side. That being said, there was no question…

Review: Brightburn (2019)

As some of you may know by now, horror is not my genre of choice but one sure-fire way to pique my interest is to add a superhero element. If you throw James Gunn into the mix then I am sold. As a result, I was quietly excited about Brightburn, which despite being directed by…

Series Review: Chernobyl (2019)

With the final series coming to an end, I was worried that I wouldn’t find anything to fill the Game of Thrones shaped hole in my life, but then along comes writer, Craig Mazin (Hangover 2, Identity Thief) with the hard-hitting HBO mini-series, Chernobyl, which is currently sitting pretty as the highest rated series on IMDB….

Review: Aladdin (2019)

If you have read some of my other reviews, you are probably aware that I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with remakes and reboots, especially when it comes to live-action remakes of classic animated films. Some have smashed it out of the park (Beauty and the Beast) whereas others have fallen woefully short…
