The Front Runner: Film Review

I heard a lot of great things about The Front Runner during the London Film Festival (where I missed it) and I must admit that while Jason Reitman has made a good film, I found myself unsatisfied and wanting more.

Patriots Day: Film Review

Everyone would have heard about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings from press coverage but I doubt any of us really knew what happened on the ground during that time and in the days afterwards and Patriots Day intends to change that.

The top ten movies to see this month are:

Birdman

Michael Keaton stars as Riggan, a washed-up actor who quit a popular action hero franchise and is now trying to prove himself as a legitimate talent by writing, directing and starring in a Broadway play. This comedy has a unique filming style so it looks like it was all shot in one take. Great support cast including Edward Norton and Emma Stone who need awards for their roles! I have already seen and you can check my review here. Released: 1st January
