Vox Lux: Film Review

Natalie Portman knows how to give a good performance – she has the Best Actress Oscar to prove it after all – and she doesn’t disappoint in Vox Lux.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile: Film Review

Many films have been made about notorious American serial killer Ted Bundy, who confessed to killing 30 women across several states in the 1970s (although it is expected to be many more) and so Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile goes for a fresh perspective – that of his longtime girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer, based on her book.

Long Shot: Film Review

Seth Rogen is one of those comedy actors who just makes me laugh. I don’t know what it is about him but you can guarantee I’ll like a film that he’s in and I’ll laugh my head off, but Long Shot went above and beyond my expectations. The best romcom of the year so far!

Bel Canto: Film Review

I love Julianne Moore and I’d usually say she can play any role but I’m not convinced that’s the case with Bel Canto, an uneven romance drama based on the 2001 novel of the same name by Ann Patchett.

Avengers: Endgame – Film Review

Where do I even start with this review?! My mind has been reeling since I watched Avengers: Endgame a few hours ago – there is so much to process and I honestly feel like my brain has been unable to retain everything that happened!

Red Joan: Film Review

I enjoy a good espionage story so I was very intrigued by Red Joan, but it wasn’t as satisfying as I’d hoped. It was a pleasant enough watch but didn’t give me the espionage thrills I was after.

Greta: Film Review

You can always sign me up for a psychological thriller, but one that stars Isabelle Huppert and Chloe Grace Moretz gets a definite yes, yes, yes from me. Sadly, Greta wasn’t as satisfying as I’d hoped it would be and it was unexpectedly trashy.

Mid90s: Film Review

I have been a fan of Jonah Hill‘s acting work for a long time so naturally, I was keen to check out his directorial debut Mid90s – and it pains me to say that I wasn’t a fan of it at all.

Little: Film Review

We have had a lot of these ‘person falls under curse’ type movies of late, with What Men Want and Isn’t It Romantic springing to mind as recent examples, so Little doesn’t feel particularly fresh or exciting, but at least it introduces us to the wonders of Marsai Martin.
