A Look Back at July

As the current worldwide health crisis continues to spread in front of us like an incredibly long tunnel with only the tiniest flicker of light at the end, we at least now have some brief moments of respite from the monotony as the cinemas start to re-open (in the U.K. at least, judging by how…

Unhinged Review

I’ve been away from the cinema for so long, I’d forgotten what popcorn smelt like… Yes, for the first time since March 11th, I got to see a new film at the cinema. After a few long months of uncertainty, I got to sit in the dark, with a large drink in the armrest, and…

Trainspotting Review

I’ve been intending to review this film for some time now; on the recommendation of one of my regular readers (he knows who he is). It’s a film I’d never seen before but knew by reputation, by which I mean that I shouldn’t expect a jolly skip through the tulips, I knew the film was…

Space Jam Review

The Looney Tunes are practically animation royalty nowadays, they’ve been around since the 1930’s and generations of children have come to love Bugs, Daffy, and all the other wacky characters that make up the Looney Tunes roster. Their longevity is testament to their popularity, as there are still TV series running now that carry on…

Dolemite is My Name Review

I’d be the first person to admit that I neglect Netflix releases on this site. You’d think now would be the opportune time to catch up on its movements with most traditional releasing methods being barren, but I’ve been so busy catching up on old stuff I’ve had to watch on DVD or Blu-Ray that…

Snowpiercer Review

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been on somewhat of a Korean cinema binge, off the back of one particular stunning film experience from one particular director from the East-Asian country, a certain Bong Joon-ho. While Bong Joon-ho has been a popular director in his home country for some time, it was only really with Parasite that…

Evolution of Animation: Part Two – Rise of Disney

So, when we left off last time, the studios had risen up to take charge of animation, and one man, in particular, had just had his most popular character ripped away from him by his studio, and that man would go on, to say the least, to achieve much success regardless. Walter Elias Disney was…

Hamilton Review

I actually wrestled with reviewing this when I went to see the show in London last year, but after much thought, I decided that my critical qualifications are stretched to their limits enough when I cover films, and extending it to potentially annoy the theatre world too might just be pushing my luck too far;…

Mother Review

I know what you’re thinking, and no, this isn’t a review of the 2017 Darren Aronofsky horror that split audiences, it’s a review of the 2009 South Korean film written and directed by the current talk of Hollywood; Bong Joon-ho. Joon-ho has long been acclaimed in his home country, as much as it may surprise…
