Christopher Robin: Film Review

I was surprised when Christopher Robin was released so soon after the release of other Pooh film Goodbye Christopher Robin, which I loved. Thankfully they are very different pieces – Goodbye was a realistic biopic about author AA Milne, his Winnie-the-Pooh creation and his relationship with his son Christopher, whereas the Disney version is pure fantasy which isn’t as effective.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again: Film Review

I don’t usually write film reviews when I’ve watched a movie so late, but I have so much to say about Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again that I felt compelled to write one.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Film Review

I’m definitely feeling the superhero fatigue – I wasn’t excited about Ant-Man and the Wasp at all, even though I loved the original and his appearance in Captain America: Civil War. It was kinda what I expected though – a lot of fun but ultimately just good. I couldn’t stretch any better than ‘good’.

Hotel Artemis: Film Review

Hotel Artemis came out quite a while ago in America and it received mixed reviews, so I foolishly went in not expecting much from it and came away pleasantly surprised – it is intriguing and very entertaining.

The Butterfly Tree: Film Review

I haven’t seen Melissa George in anything for quite a while so it was lovely to see her back on my screen playing a mysterious, beguiling and vulnerable character named Evelyn in The Butterfly Tree.

Racer and the Jailbird: Film Review

I love me a bit of Matthias Schoenaerts so I was keen to watch the Racer and the Jailbird (original French title: Le Fidele) at the London Film Festival but I unfortunately missed it. It is now set for a limited cinema release and I can’t really recommend – it was not worth the wait.

First Reformed: Film Review

First Reformed was the one film I felt I really missed out on during the Sundance London film festival so I had to check it out ahead of its release. I felt like everyone has been raving about it, but I can’t say the same – I can appreciate that it’s a well-made movie but I didn’t actively enjoy it.

Terminal: Film Review

I will pretty much watch everything featuring Margot Robbie and she was in a run of films that I loved, from I, Tonya to Goodbye Christopher Robin, but that sadly comes to an end with Terminal, which is the perfect example of style over substance.

Swimming With Men: Film Review

I wasn’t particularly bothered about catching Swimming with Men but my mind was changed after I saw Rob Brydon‘s promotional appearance on Graham Norton and was left in stitches by the clip that was shown. The whole film is exactly like that – a very funny watch.

Sicario 2: Soldado – Film Review

I didn’t love the original Sicario as much as everyone else and I didn’t hold much hope for this instalment knowing it would be without Emily Blunt and cinematographer Roger Deakins, my two favourite things about the first. They were certainly missed in this sequel, also known as Day of the Soldado, which I didn’t like much, yet again.
