Suburbicon: Film Review

Suburbicon

I felt confident about Suburbicon – what with it being directed by George Clooney and starring Matt Damon and Julianne Moore – until the bad reviews came out following its premiere at the Venice Film Festival. I didn’t let that faze me as I wanted it to be good and I went in full of hope – and came away miffed about the mixed bag I had witnessed.

Tomorrowland: Film Review

I loved Tomorrowland (or Tomorrowland: A World Beyond as it’s called over here) and enjoyed it up until a point towards the end when I started feeling a bit deflated.
