Emma: Film Review

I didn’t really think we needed another movie adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma but the trailer for Autumn de Wilde’s version looked bonkers and fun so I was intrigued about what it had to offer. The latest Emma has moments of wit and comedy but is just fine in general.

Parasite: Film Review

Parasite has been winning all the Best Foreign Language awards this season and has even crossed over into other categories – such as the Best Picture Oscar – and there is a reason for this – it is fantastic. It is the easiest 5/5 I’ve given in months, I’ve already seen it twice and it is definitely going to end up on my Best Films of 2020 list. Yes, it’s that good. Believe the hype, people.

Tom Hanks is beloved by everyone, an actor who seems like a genuinely nice guy, and so it makes perfect sense for him to play American children’s entertainer Fred Rogers, the kind host of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, in Marielle Heller‘s A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood.

Queen & Slim: Film Review

If you’ve seen Bonnie & Clyde or Thelma & Louise then you’ve got some idea of what you’re getting with Queen & Slim. It has a similar premise – wanted criminals on the run – but it feels different, fresh and timely.

The Lighthouse: Film Review

I was determined to see The Lighthouse at the London Film Festival but the timing never worked out so I have been waiting to see this film for almost three months. It wasn’t at all what I expected so I felt a bit deflated. It is so damn weird!

The Personal History of David Copperfield: Film Review

I am a massive fan of Dev Patel so naturally, I was excited to see him leading a Victorian-era period drama – The Personal History of David Copperfield – and while he’s fantastic in it, I wasn’t blown away by the film itself.
