Alita: Battle Angel – Film Review

I wasn’t super excited about Alita: Battle Angel but I decided to check it out and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I have a feeling it’s going to be a box office flop which is a shame because it’s actually quite good.

The Lego Movie 2: Film Review

I was a huge fan of 2014’s The Lego Movie – it was hilarious and so so clever – but that years ago now and we’ve had The Lego Batman Movie since then and I didn’t love that one as much (and I didn’t even watch the Ninjago one).

Velvet Buzzsaw: Film Review

I didn’t have much clue about Velvet Buzzsaw except that it starred Jake Gyllenhaal, which was frankly enough for me – I’ll watch anything with him in. But then I learned that he was teaming up with his Nightcrawler director Dan Gilroy again and playing an art critic with epic glasses and I was sold.

Burning: Film Review

Burning, a psychological drama/mystery from South Korea, is another one I missed at the London Film Festival and I’m glad I caught up on it because Steven Yeun‘s performance is incredible and the film really leaves you thinking.

Can You Ever Forgive Me?: Film Review

Melissa McCarthy is best known for her comedy work but has recently starred in a string of duds such as The Happytime Murders and Life of the Party so it is a pleasure to see her being given the opportunity to do drama and show that she’s amazing at it, as her recent Oscar nomination proves.

Green Book: Film Review

I had heard so much praise about Green Book so naturally my expectations were high – yet it still managed to surpass them. I loved it and I want to see it again.

Destroyer: Film Review

Everyone is talking about Nicole Kidman‘s transformation in Destroyer and there is a reason for that – it is jaw-droppingly incredible and she looks almost unrecognisable, and her performance is top notch too. However, the film itself is slow, depressing and pretty dull.
