The Current War: Film Review

I was looking forward to The Current War because I felt like it would fill a gap in my knowledge – I knew nothing about George Westinghouse and his involvement with the evolution of electricity – but the film only offers a potted history and I felt ambivalent about the whole thing.

Mid90s: Film Review

I have been a fan of Jonah Hill‘s acting work for a long time so naturally, I was keen to check out his directorial debut Mid90s – and it pains me to say that I wasn’t a fan of it at all.

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.

Steve Jobs: Film Review

I think I am in the minority when I say I don’t see Steve Jobs as some sort of tech God. Yes, I can acknowledge everything he has done for the industry and how he helped revolutionise it, but as someone who doesn’t buy Apple products or read about tech, I was very unaware of his whole story.
