Uncut Gems Review

Let me take a moment to explain about anxiety. Imagine for a moment your brain is not housed inside a head, and is instead housed inside a beehive, where the bees tend to hold a lot of raves and shout your biggest failings to you at all hours of the day. That is what anxiety…

Richard Jewell Review

There are many things that astonish me about Clint Eastwood. His directorial talents being the main one, but his longevity and work ethic in his advanced age is another. It’s difficult to imagine a scenario in which a nearly 90 year old man can possibly still have something relevant to say. It’s fair to say…

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…
