Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – Film Review

I wasn’t the biggest fan of the first Fantastic Beasts so I wasn’t excited for The Crimes of Grindelwald and I had pretty low expectations – and that feeling was accurate because the film is just a bit meh.

Murder on the Orient Express: Film Review

I know the reviews for Murder on the Orient Express have been mixed at best but the cast is so incredible that I had to check it out anyway and I’m sorry to confirm that the masses were right – it is disappointing.

Top Films for November

It’s the start of November, which means it’s movie preview time! We’re slowly getting into awards season, with a lot of London Film Festival favourites hitting general release, but that doesn’t mean the blockbusters have disappeared. Here’s my recommendations for November:

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

When I heard there was going to be another Pirates of the Caribbean movie, I couldn’t help but groan because I felt the franchise was done – as much as I loved the first two, the last two (especially the fourth) weren’t so good and I expected this, also known as Salazar’s Revenge, to be SO bad, so imagine how pleasantly surprised I was to discover that is a welcome return to form for the franchise.

I was intrigued to see Planetarium by Rebecca Zlotowski because it’d never seen Lily-Rose Depp, the daughter of Johnny Depp and French actress Vanessa Paradis, on the big screen nor had I seen Natalie Portman speaking predominantly French in a movie.

I’m glad this Johnny Depp and Amber Heard mess is over

As I’m sure you’re all aware, I love me a juicy celebrity story, especially ones that are so shocking you just cannot believe them. So I initially devoured news of Amber Heard’s divorce from Johnny Depp in May and soon after she filed for a protection order claiming he had been abusive. In the past week things have got so nasty that I stopped wanting to hear about it, a rarity for a celeb gossip lover such as myself, and now I’m glad it’s seemingly over.

Will celebs stop commenting on the Amber Heard & Johnny Depp scandal please?

This is not about taking sides. Nobody knows what goes on behind the closed doors of a relationship, NO ONE. So why do Johnny Depp‘s friends and family think it’s a good idea to publicly defend him in the midst of these domestic abuse allegations?! It’s just wrong and they need to shut up.

Alice Through the Looking Glass: Film Review

My reaction to 2010’s Alice in Wonderland was distinctly average – it was ‘meh’, alright but forgettable – so I wasn’t massively looking forward to this sequel, which has taken a big six-year gap and switched directors from Tim Burton to James Bobin. The box office takings were huge, but this sequel still feels unwarranted.

Tonight I went down to the London premiere of Alice Through the Looking Glass, and much like the press conference on Sunday, it starred Johnny Depp, Sacha Baron Cohen, Mia Wasikowska, director James Bobin and producer Tim Burton. They were also joined by minor cast members Ed Speleers and Andrew Scott.
