Dark Waters Review

Mark Ruffalo has form for political thrillers. A few years ago, he starred in the brilliant Spotlight a film about a group of journalists who uncovered the extent of child abuse within the Catholic Church in America, which won Best Picture at the Oscars. Now he’s uncovering a whole new mystery, although he’s changed jobs from journalists…

The Invisible Man Review

Anyone remember the Dark Universe? That ambitious shared cinematic universe idea based off the old Universal monster properties? The franchise that was knee capped after one terrible film? You don’t? Can’t say I blame you. Well, this is the attempt to subtly bring that idea back, a co-production between Universal and prolific horror producers Blumhouse,…

Parasite Review

Every so often a film comes along that reminds you why you love cinema. Three Billboards a few years ago was one such film, as was Dunkirk, and now it has a stablemate: Parasite.

Her previous film, The Babadook, was a success both critically and commercially (comparatively anyway) and instantly put her on the radar of fans and critics alike, and made her next film one to watch. That next film materialised as this, The Nightingale,…

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…
