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.

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.

Anon: Film Review

I’m a big fan of Andrew Niccol‘s work, from In Time to his screenplay for The Truman Show, because they serve as a warning about what the future could be like, and how technology could be misused, and Anon is no different – this time he takes a look at privacy.

Gringo: Film Review

Gringo has all the makings of a top-notch comedy – from a decent premise to a stellar cast – led by Charlize Theron, David Oyelowo and Joel Edgerton – but for some reason, it just fails to ignite.

I was not remotely excited for Pan, because I didn’t think another Peter Pan film was necessary and the film trailer just did not pique my interest in the slightest. So I completely amazed by how good it was. It really is a wonderful, vibrant and fun family film.

And that does show here as the plot is pretty thin and it is more of the same. It’s still pretty good fun though.

Tony Awards 2015: Best & Worst Dressed

yes1

I don’t usually cover the Tony Awards when I do my red carpet outfit ratings but so many dresses caught my eye this year that I simply couldn’t resist. There weren’t many bad ones actually – I’m mainly here to big up the beautiful dresses – including one of my favourites, Jennifer Lopez. I’m used to her flaunting her body and wearing skimpy/barely-there clothes that this was a breath of fresh air. And what a gorgeous dress too! She looks stunning. There was some other amazing looks too, check out my slideshows to find out who made the cut.
