Pierrepoint Review

Politics. Religion. Pineapple on pizza. These are all topics many people don’t feel comfortable talking about in mixed company. Amongst the vast swathes of points that could fall under the subject of ‘politics’ (most things in life come down to it in one way or another) that causes awkward silence if brought up in mixed…

Mank Review

Movies whose primary subject matter is movies themselves, or rather, about Hollywood, can be a difficult sell. It may turn out that it romanticises Hollywood’s past, celebrating it as a paragon of culture without looking at its negative sides (like Once Upon a Time in Hollywood).

A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood Review

Over here in jolly ‘fish n chips and tea’ UK, the name Mr Rogers is usually met with confused looks and blank stares; meanwhile in the ‘cheeseburgers and shopping malls’ US of A, Mr Rogers is a beloved household name, credited with building many a childhood with his sage advice on life. He is a…

After La La Land, their next collaboration was going to be one to watch, and they set their sights big, taking on the story of Neil Armstrong and the very first moon landing. Although to call it a film…

BlacKkKlansman Review

Undoubtedly one of this years most important film releases, BlacKkKlansman is the latest film from acclaimed director Spike Lee, known for shining a cinematic light on the plight of being an African-American in a discriminatory world (Do The Right Thing and Malcolm X being the best examples in his filmography). The film generated positive buzz…

Darkest Hour Review

Winston Churchill seems, just recently anyway, to be enjoying a resurgence. In that he has been portrayed in one movie or another several times over the past year. I see the appeal of course, with Britain in such a dire state now, many people would rather look back on a time when it seemed we…
