Yesterday: Film Review

I love a lot of Richard Curtis‘ films but I wasn’t taken with the concept of Yesterday and the film failed to change my mind on that. It’s certainly not one of his – or director Danny Boyle‘s – best projects.

The Spy Who Dumped Me: Film Review

I had no idea who Kate McKinnon was until she was cast in the Ghostbusters reboot and then I fell under her spell and have loved her ever since. She’s so funny and captivating onscreen, so it’s no surprise she was the best thing about The Spy Who Dumped Me.
