Toy Story 4: Film Review

For a long time I had been worried about Toy Story 4 because I thought Toy Story 3 ended things perfectly so I feared another instalment would ruin that. And now I’ve seen it I have to admit I didn’t think it was totally necessary.

Men in Black: International – Film Review

I loved the original Men in Black and I’m a huge fan of Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson so I figured Men in Black: International was onto a winner. Sadly I have to report that it’s a bland, forgettable action movie. What a shame.

Late Night: Film Review

I love Mindy Kaling and I was a huge fan of her TV show The Mindy Project so I got very excited when I heard she was writing a feature film starring Emma Thompson! My expectations were naturally quite high for Late Night and it sadly fell short of them. [Read more…]

The promotional material didn’t thrill me and I didn’t even put it on my May movies list but I was determined to see it with an open mind – and I actually liked it!

Rocketman: Film Review

I was extremely excited for Rocketman because I love Taron Egerton (a well-known fact about me) and a lot of Elton John‘s songs so it was a winning combination. However, I didn’t feel completely satisfied with the story and was left wanting more.

My Days of Mercy: Film Review

I originally saw My Days of Mercy at the 2018 BFI Flare Festival, a celebration of LGBTQ cinema, and it’s finally getting a U.K. cinema release today, although I can’t actually find any cinemas showing it. That’s a shame because lead actors Ellen Page and Kate Mara, who play lovers on opposite sides of a political debate, put in good performances.
