Worst Films of 2019

When you see as many films as I do, you’re bound to see a few stinkers to go with the hits. While they might not be much fun to watch at the time, they almost always make for the best reviews, so it’s only right that I write a counterpoint to my best films with…

Top 10 Films of 2019

Just as the sun continues to rise and fall, critics will continue to list their best films of the year… Yes, here we are again, another year older but not a bit wiser, and I have the task of picking my top 10 favourite films of the year. I’ve seen more films than ever this…

It Was a Very Good Year…

Hello all, Nathan here, I just wanted to thank you all for supporting my writings (or witterings, as some might say) it’s been my best year of writing by far this year, my viewing figures have increased by almost 200% and my writing output has doubled in the last year, I wouldn’t be able to…

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Review

Well, this is it, the end of an era. Forty-two years of galaxy-spanning adventures, of trade disputes, of lightsabre battles, of Wookies and of Jar Jar bloody Binks, we arrive at the end. This is what has been built up to since the Disney buyout, sure Force Awakens brought it back, but this is the…

Blue Story Review

There was a bit of a furore around this film upon release here in the U.K. An incident surrounding a gang and some machetes led to it being banned at a specific chain over here, in a case of adding two and two and coming up with five, as it transpired that they weren’t even…

Little Women Review

It’s safe to say after the critical success of 2017’s Lady Bird, a lot of eyes were going to be on Greta Gerwig and her next project. I must say, choosing to adapt a classic novel to the big screen for a new generation is a brave move for only your second film. Full disclosure,…

Black Christmas Review

Horror remakes really are ten-a-penny. There seems to be no once-profitable franchise that is so dead it can’t be revived for one more round, and they are almost always universally terrible. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, eh? What this film is, is a holding pattern. Blumhouse can’t seem to resist when a new…

JoJo Rabbit Review

Taika Waititi is a unique talent in Hollywood. Not afraid to explore surreal, and absolutely barmy premises, he’s been a leading light of Polynesian cinema for a few years now, and he well and truly came into mainstream attention after directing Thor: Ragnarok, one of the MCU’s more entertaining films in its canon. I’ll be…

Jumanji: The Next Level Review

The last Jumanji film was a pleasant surprise. A reboot of a beloved childhood classic that not only paid its respects to its predecessor, but in some ways exceeded it, bringing a boatload of fresh adventure to a long-dormant title. With a talented cast (and Dwayne Johnson) the new era of Jumanji seemed bright, so…

Motherless Brooklyn Review

You have to give it to directors who also star in their films, it’s a tricky art. Actually, I’d say it’s hard enough doing one or the other without making it harder for yourself. That doesn’t mean that actors don’t give it a good old college try. Many try, some fail, some excel, just ask…
