Every year I have to pop down and check out Prop Store’s annual movie memorabilia exhibition. It’s a must for any movie nerd, and you can check out some of the highlights of the 2018 collection here:

The Boy Downstairs: Film Review

I wanted to see The Boy Downstairs at the London Film Festival but sadly my schedule didn’t allow for it, so I had to make up for that ahead of its release, and I’m glad I did because it’s a lovely little film.

McQueen: Film Review

I wasn’t interested by fashion until a few years ago so I didn’t really have much of an idea of who Alexander McQueen was before his death in 2010, so this documentary gave me a fascinating insight into the tragic life of the designer.

The Tale: Sundance London Film Review

The Tale is the most powerful and upsetting portrayal of childhood sexual abuse I’ve ever seen on screen because it is based on writer and director Jennifer Fox’s real, personal experience.

My Friend Dahmer: Film Review

I like to go into movies knowing as little as possible about them, so I rarely watch trailers and dodge plot summaries online where I can. This generally works well for me, except with My Friend Dahmer, because I didn’t realise it was about Jeffrey Dahmer‘s early life, so I spent the whole movie waiting for his killing spree to begin and felt disappointed it wasn’t about that.

Allure: Film Review

What I love about Evan Rachel Wood is that she doesn’t take on easy roles – she takes on challenging, uncomfortable characters who do questionable things and isn’t afraid to play someone extremely damaged. This is demonstrated the most in Allure.

Deadpool 2: Film Review

Big shocker: I wasn’t the biggest fan of the original Deadpool. I liked it just fine, but people started freaking out and saying how awesome it was and I just didn’t get it. That’s why I didn’t go in with the greatest expectations for the sequel – and I was right. It is, again, just fine, but not as good as the first.

On Chesil Beach: Film Review

I am a huge Saoirse Ronan fan so I will check her out in anything, but On Chesil Beach was also appealing to me because I like adaptations of Ian McEwan novels like Atonement and Enduring Love. This certainly isn’t as emotionally gruelling as Atonement, but the leads put in tremendous performances.

Revenge: Film Review

I quite enjoy a revenge movie and love films starring a female kicking ass and taking names, so Revenge was always going to be up my street, but I liked it way more than I imagined.

How to Talk to Girls at Parties: Film Review

How to Talk to Girls at Parties was one of the films I was most excited to watch at the London Film Festival, but I wasn’t alone and every public screening sold out, so I had wait until now to see it. Unfortunately it didn’t quite live up to expectations, even though I had a lot of fun with it.
