The Little Stranger: Film Review

I read The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters purely because I knew Domhnall Gleeson was going to be starring in the adaptation, to be directed by Lenny Abrahamson. I am a huge fan of them both, obviously, but sadly the film doesn’t capture all the building tension, mystery and intrigue of the book, yet retains its annoyingly vague ending.

Detroit: Film Review

Detroit tells an important story about police brutality against African-Americans in the 1960s and shares a hard-hitting and poignant message that things still haven’t changed today. It made me very angry and left me reeling about the injustice of it all for hours afterwards.

Someone please just give Leonardo DiCaprio an Oscar already! He has worked hard enough, and it’s never been more evident than in The Revenant, where he goes through hell – literally, not for pretend – in savage, freezing conditions to make the most authentic and epic survival tale I have seen in a long time.

The Maze Runner: Film Review

maze1

This is not a terrible film but when you compare it to other young adult movie adaptations and with the source material, it is not so great. I was a massive fan of the book and I had just finished reading it in time for the screening so every single detail was fresh in my mind and I was constantly aware of how many changes they were making.

Dylan O’Brien plays Thomas, who finds himself in a lift with his memory wiped. He enters The Glade, where a gang of boys are learning to survive their imprisonment. The Glade is surrounded by a Maze that changes every night and is home to deadly creatures called Grievers. Runners traverse the maze to find an escape route but nothing seems to work. However, the arrival of Thomas and a mysterious girl changes everything.
