Red Joan: Film Review

I enjoy a good espionage story so I was very intrigued by Red Joan, but it wasn’t as satisfying as I’d hoped. It was a pleasant enough watch but didn’t give me the espionage thrills I was after.

Greta: Film Review

You can always sign me up for a psychological thriller, but one that stars Isabelle Huppert and Chloe Grace Moretz gets a definite yes, yes, yes from me. Sadly, Greta wasn’t as satisfying as I’d hoped it would be and it was unexpectedly trashy.

Shazam!: Film Review

I could not get excited about Shazam! There seemed to be very little publicity or hype, the trailer looked a bit rubbish and lame, and I don’t have much faith in DCEU films, so I was beyond surprised by how much I actually enjoyed it.

The Highwaymen: Netflix Film Review

The premise for The Highwaymen seemed interesting, cool and refreshing; taking the famous Bonnie & Clyde story and telling it from the perspective of two retired Texas Rangers commissioned to track them down – but sadly, the film was slow and dull.
