Harriet (2019) – Review

A Universal Picture, Written by Gregory Allen Howard, Kasi Lemmons, Directed by Kasi Lemmons. This is a solid and well made biopic about one of the most important people in American history. I couldn’t help but get the feeling that this film didn’t properly show the full impact this woman had and the amount of […]

Uncut Gems (2019) – Review

An A24 Picture, Written by Josh Safdie, Benny Safdie, Ronald Bronstein, Directed by Josh Safdie, Benny Safdie. Uncut Gems is undoubtably a unique piece of cinema and exactly the sort of indie film that I hope continues to be made. It is totally a singular vision, and absolutely thrilling, with the style of the Safdie […]

Miss Americana (2020) – Review

A Netflix Original Picture, Directed by Lana Wilson. Taylor Swift is one of the biggest selling, highly decorated, and most talked about celebrities of the 21st Century, and this documentary allows us behind closed doors to get a better understanding of who she is. This is less a story about how a country girl managed […]

Bojack Horseman Season 6: Part 2 (2020) – TV Review

We have finally reached the end of one of televisions most stunning achievements. What started as an amusing animation that lovingly made fun of Hollywood and it’s inhabitants, quickly became one of the most startling examinations of the human condition ever put on screen. The whole show, throughout its 6 season run, has dealt with […]

Fast and Furious 9 – Trailer Reaction

The extra long first trailer for “F9” has finally dropped and it is completely bonkers, and certainly attention grabbing. Some of the action looks so implausible and over the top that it’s almost unmissable, but it’s the narrative decisions that really interest me. Dom’s brother is introduced as the villain of the film, played by […]

The Rhythm Section (2020) – Review

A Paramount Picture, Written by Mark Burnell, Directed by Reed Marano. A “spy film” from the producers of James Bond, directed by Reed Marano, and starring Blake Lively should be a huge deal, especially to the people who are always clamouring for a ‘female bond’. However, the film was poorly marketed and the final product […]

A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood (2019) – Review

A Sony Picture, Written by Micah Fitzerman-Blue, Noah Harpster, Directed by Marielle Heller. This film could quite easily have been a run of the mill biopic about a famous American idol. However, what we get is an inventive story about Mister Rogers, and more specifically about how his brand of kindness is something we should […]

BAFTA Predictions

The BAFTAs are the final major awards show before the Oscars and are the most prestigious awards ceremony in British film. While they often reflect quite closely what the American academy will do, there are usually some notable differences, with obvious preference to British film. I have made some bold predictions (especially supporting actress) but […]

The Good Place Season 4 (2019/20) – TV Review

The Good Place has proven over its four year run to be one of the most genuinely kind hearted, inventive, and well written shows on TV. We live in a very divisive and often unpleasant world right now, and yet this show is able to really tap into the core of what it truly means […]

Dracula (2020) – TV Review

The legend of Dracula is one of the most well known and frequently adapted stories in the history do literature, and I truly believe this will stand up as one of the best. You can tell it is from Moffat and Gatiss as it has their distinct style, whilst also mixing well with the classic […]
