The LEGO Batman Movie: Film Review

lego

After the success of The LEGO Movie it really wasn’t much of a surprise that they created a spin-off although I wasn’t all that fussed about it being centred around Batman. We have seen him a lot and I didn’t really know what else could be done with his story, but I was wrong and this film really works.

Hail, Caesar!: Film Review

hail1

I love movies based in the movie industry and I do love a good cast and Hail, Caesar! filled both criteria. I was still not 100% confident I would like it because I do not enjoy all the Coen brothers’ work, but I was still hoping for more than what it ultimately gave.

A Bigger Splash: Film Review

A Bigger Splash is all about a love rectangle – not triangle – between the incredible leads Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Matthias Schoenaerts and Dakota Johnson, and I was incredibly excited to see the sexual tension and drama unfold in this erotic thriller.

Spectre Premiere: Picture Gallery

Tonight I went to the premiere for the latest James Bond movie Spectre – which was probably the biggest and most extravagant premiere I have ever been to. Oh my God, the red carpet was so long I couldn’t see the start, it was held at the fancy Royal Albert Hall rather than the regular Leicester Square and I have never seen so much talent for one film!

Spectre: Film Review

bond4

Spectre always had a struggle on its hands trying to top Skyfall, which was the franchise’s most successful film yet. The hype around Spectre was insane and it failed to deliver on the high level of expectation. That doesn’t mean Spectre is a bad movie, it was simply disappointing because I had hopes for so much more.

Andy Serkis on the Jungle Book and Star Wars at Empire Film Awards

IMG_20150329_170357 Today I braved the wind and rain (and there was a lot of rain!) to check out the red carpet for the Empire Film Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. There were a ton of big names (check out the list below) but sadly most of them didn’t stop for interviews and went straight to the party. Andy Serkis, the lovely man that he is, stopped to chat to everyone and was so, so nice. Also, what a fabulous shirt choice?! So we got a few minutes with him chatting about his directing/acting job on The Jungle Book and the hush-hush roles in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens.

The Grand Budapest Hotel: Review

bud1

I think if you are a fan of Wes Anderson films you will love this because it is as oddball and crazy as his other attempts. I’m not a follower of his work, I haven’t seen any of his films before so I didn’t really know what I was getting myself in for and I think that affected my reaction. To be honest, I only went because of the cast and because it had received great reviews.
