Tomb Raider: Film Review

I groaned when the Tomb Raider reboot was announced because I didn’t think it was necessary as I’m a big fan of the Angelina Jolie movies. I was also very skeptical when Alicia Vikander was cast as Lara Croft – she didn’t seem like the right fit – but now I need to eat my words because she and the film are both great.

The Light Between Oceans: Film Review

 

light

I had wanted to see The Light Between Oceans for a while because I love Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander separately so I had to see their joint effort, especially as this is where their romance began. Their performances are brilliant, as is their chemistry, but the film as a whole is a very heavy, emotionally intense slog.

Jason Bourne: Film Review

bourne1

I loved the original Bourne trilogy but I never really felt like it needed more instalments so I wasn’t particularly excited for Jason Bourne because it seemed like a cash grab as the stories had pretty much wrapped up with 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum. And while it doesn’t really add anything new to the franchise, Jason Bourne is still a worthy film that reaches the same standard as the originals.

Top Films for July

july1

A new month is here and once again, here are the films I’m most excited about seeing – sadly, nothing on the list is an original idea and it’s mainly sequels or reboots/adaptations. There are a number of obvious choices I have missed off the list for legit reasons, such as Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (this was popular before my time), The Legend of Tarzan (I’ve seen it and I don’t recommend), Central Intelligence (it’s alright) and The Neon Demon (I don’t think I’ll like it).

Met Gala 2016: Best & Worst Dressed

I don’t really remember when the Met Gala became such a big celeb thing but it is, and the fashion is under a microscope on an even more ridiculous scale than the Oscars! I honestly don’t understand why celebs go and put themselves under this pressure to wear something fabulous, something that stands out and something that is in keeping with the theme.

We have finally reached the end of the film awards season! It felt like we would never get there but yes, the Oscars, the pinnacle of everything, happened Sunday night. Sure, the prizes are a good talking point but this is ALL about the fashion. This is the biggie – the event everyone saves their best for, and there were some damn good outfits on display.
