The Trial of the Chicago 7

I’m a huge fan of Aaron Sorkin‘s work so of course, I was excited for The Trial of the Chicago 7, which he has written and directed, and he didn’t disappoint – this is one of my favourite films of the year so far.

Project Power: Netflix Film Review

Project Power

With high-profile names like Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt attached, I had extremely high hopes for Project Power and while it didn’t entirely deliver, it was still an entertaining ride.

The Walk: Film Review

All the buzz around The Walk seems to be about the visual spectacle element and sure, it does look amazing, immersive and you do feel like you are on the wire with Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
