Dunkirk: Film Review

I am such a fan of Christopher Nolan films so I always hype them up so much. This was my downfall with Interstellar and now it is again with Dunkirk. I had raised my expectations so high that it would be impossible for the film to reach them so I felt a bit let down because the film was very, very good but not the spectacular triumph I wanted it to be.

War for the Planet of the Apes: Film Review

Due to a cold, jetlag and just generally feeling naff, I didn’t manage to see War for the Planet of the Apes until yesterday but I’m glad I got around to it because it was as awesome as the other two instalments (which were excellent) and shows all other blockbusters how it’s done.

The Beguiled: Film Review

I love most Sofia Coppola movies (I still don’t get the hype about Lost in Translation) and I love the cast in this – Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Elle Fanning and Kirsten Dunst – so obviously I was excited to check it out and I was not disappointed. It is a fantastic drama simmering with sexual desire and a slow-burning tension.

Spider-Man: Homecoming – Film Review

I must admit I wasn’t remotely excited about Spider-Man: Homecoming because it didn’t feel necessary, I had enjoyed both previous iterations and I also had superhero fatigue. The only reason I checked it out while on holiday was because of the overwhelmingly positive reviews and I’m glad I did because it’s a total delight.

All Eyez on Me: Film Review

I always love a movie that sheds light on an incredible life story and All Eyez on Me does exactly that. Obviously, a lot of people will already know about Tupac Shakur‘s life but I really didn’t – I don’t know much of his music and I didn’t know much besides his death – so this biopic was incredibly informative and interesting.

Baby Driver: Film Review

I am a huge fan of Edgar Wright‘s films but I wasn’t initially convinced about Baby Driver, I just wasn’t feeling the trailer, but I was very wrong and the movie is probably one of the few I’ve enjoyed unequivocally this year.

Transformers: The Last Knight – Film Review

I’m of the belief that they should have called time on the Transformers franchise years ago and I never felt particularly excited about The Last Knight upon seeing the trailer but I’ve seen all the others and it was only right I saw this. It is exactly what you would expect, no more no less, so I imagine franchise fans will be satisfied.

Churchill: Film Review

We’ve recently seen Winston Churchill in The Crown, played by the award-winning John Lithgow and will we soon see him again in Darkest Hour, where he is portrayed by Gary Oldman. So do we need another one in the meantime? Well, probably not, but at least in Churchill we are presented with a different moment in time and an impressive performance by Brian Cox.

Gifted: Film Review

I love Chris Evans as Captain America but the role hasn’t left him time to do much else so it’s great to finally see him do something completely different, even if he does get upstaged by his young co-star Mckenna Grace.

My Cousin Rachel: Film Review

I’m a huge fan of Sam Claflin and I’ve been following his films for the last few years now so I was obviously going to check out My Cousin Rachel but I was even more pleased to discover he puts in one of his finest performances yet.
