Okja

Posted 2:06pm Sunday 3rd September 2017

Rating: 2.5/5 I found Okja to be less of a revolutionary film exposing the capitalist meat industry and more of a low ruckus. The cast boasts such powerhouses as Jake Gyllenhaal, Tilda Swinton and Lily Collins, all of whom create vibrant and intriguing performances. Even the young talent, the Read more...

A Dogís Purpose

Posted 1:02pm Sunday 28th May 2017

Rating: 5/5 A Dog’s Purpose is one of the most sentimental films I have seen in a while, for the pure and obvious fact that it contains dogs and dogs dying and living and just, doggos. Taking place from the 1950s to the present day, it follows a dog, narrated by the wonderful Josh Gad, who Read more...

The Lego Batman Movie (2017)

Posted 1:19pm Sunday 7th May 2017

Rating: 4.5/5 As an avid Batman fan, or Bat-fan, viewing the Dark Knight in all his glory as a brooding LEGO figure was quite the treat. It was fraught with references from both on-screen and comic book depictions of the Caped Crusader, with some very sly ones for those who have extensive Read more...

Their Finest (2016)

Posted 1:09pm Sunday 7th May 2017

Rating: 3.5/5 To call Their Finest a British comedy, as many reviews have, is difficult, as it doesn’t provide the classic, almost slapstick, comedy that one associates with British comedy. But there is still that hint of sentimentality whenever the British signature shines through. The Read more...

The Lion King

Posted 12:35pm Sunday 17th April 2016

Rating: A+ Disney's The Lion King brought a whole new generation into the world of heart-crushing, soul destroying feelings over a death in an animated movie. Mufasa’s death (I would say spoiler alert but I mean, c’mon) to me is one of the most emotionally heart-wrenching pieces Read more...
