Lady Bird Review

Towards the end of 2019, I reviewed Little Women, a very good film directed by one Greta Gerwig, a filmmaker whose stock has been on since their first solo-directed feature, one I made reference to in my Little Women review, and one I shall now get around to reviewing: Lady Bird. Lady Bird is the genesis point for everything that…

Good Will Hunting Review

I have, in the past, stated my grief at the passing of Robin Williams. As a performer, he brought great personal joy into millions of lives, whether as an eccentric alien in Mork and Mindy, or in his more serious roles like Dead Poets Society, or indeed Good Will Hunting, he was a unique and…

It’s a…

A Look Back at March

The world has ground to a halt thanks to the spread of a deadly virus, one that isn’t fictional this time, closing pretty much everything, including cinemas. But still, I have endeavoured to keep the site ticking over with reviews of older films, both…

Ranking the Harry Potter Films (and the Spin-Offs)

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good Right, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, and what with me staying in and avoiding human contact (which is what I normally do, but now I have an excuse) I thought i’d take this opportunity to do something a bit more…
