The Two Popes Review

Religion has always been, and will always be, a divisive topic. As far as religion goes, there is no bigger figurehead than the Pope, the head of the Catholic Church, whose full title is bafflingly long (seriously Google it) and is supposedly the representation of God on Earth. Whatever your views on religion, and the…

Marriage Story Review

Last year, in my Klaus review, I said that I intended to pay closer attention to Netflix originals in the future. Such is the way films are going that a big chunk of the nominated films this year were exclusive to the streaming platform, and it has in the past represented a gaping hole in…

Bad Boys For Life Review

After the last few years, and after some truly terrible choices, I can only hope that Will Smith has fired his agent.

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…

1917 Review

The First World War is barely touched by film when compared to its successor; I think it’s fair to say that we’ve had more World War II films than we know what to do with, but First World War films are much harder to come by. I think a big part of that is that,…
