Palm Springs

Palm Springs: Film Review

I have been wanting to see Palm Springs for a really long time. Critics have been raving about it ever since Sundance Film Festival 2020 and now I’ve finally been able to see it for myself and thankfully, it lives up to the hype and matched my expectations.

Godzilla vs. Kong

Godzilla vs. Kong: Film Review

I really didn’t think Godzilla vs. Kong was a film for me – I usually cannot stand watching two big CGI monsters fight each other and that is literally the plot of this movie – but the fight scenes here are a cut above your average and the film as a whole was way more entertaining that I was expecting.

Chaos Walking

Chaos Walking: Film Review

The response to Chaos Walking has been overwhelming negative and the Rotten Tomatoes score isn’t great, so I went in with super low expectations and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Sure, it definitely doesn’t live up to its potential, but it’s not as terrible as I’d been led to believe.

Minari

Minari: Film Review

I have been hearing nothing but praise for Minari for a really long time – basically since it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last year – so I had been dying to watch it for months and I had built my expectations ridiculously high.

The Mauritanian

The Mauritanian: Film Review

The Mauritanian scored five BAFTA nominations – including Best Film and Outstanding British Film – but came away with none for the Oscars, which would suggest that it has gone down better with some voting bodies than others. Having now seen the film myself, I can understand the performance nominations but the film itself is lacking.

Six Minutes To Midnight

Six Minutes to Midnight: Film Review

I love a period drama that shines a light on something I never knew about before and Six Minutes to Midnight certainly fits the bill.

Ammonite

Ammonite: Film Review

Ammonite received rave reviews during its film festival circuit last year so I had seriously high expectations for it – but I must admit I was underwhelmed by the whole thing.

Made in Italy

Made in Italy: Film Review

Liam Neeson and his son Micheal Richardson have teamed up to play an onscreen father-son duo grieving a profound loss in this pleasant yet unoriginal comedy-drama.

Retaliation

Retaliation: Film Review

The release of Retaliation – also known as Romans – has been a long time coming. Orlando Bloom filmed this hard-hitting drama in late 2015 and it had its premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival in 2017, and somehow, almost four years later, it has got a UK release.
