Aladdin: Film Review

I had the lowest of expectations for Guy Ritchie‘s live-action version of Aladdin. The promotional material didn’t thrill me and I didn’t even put it on my May movies list but I was determined to see it with an open mind – and I actually liked it! It’s not perfect but it’s nowhere near the travesty I was expecting.

Suicide Squad: Film Review

suicide2

I wasn’t keen on Suicide Squad when it was announced because it sounded awful but I was won over by the trailers and I eventually became excited for it. That was until the reviews came out and, although I tried to ignore them, it was impossible not to take note of the negativity and lower your expectations. But I just want to assure the fans that the film is not the travesty it has been made out to be – it is messy and extremely flawed, yes, but I enjoyed most of it.

I haven’t been to a London premiere this exciting and spectacular in ages and it couldn’t have come at a better time – Suicide Squad really needed a big event like this to lift fans’ spirits following the critical mauling the film has received and the cast made sure it was a lot of fun – and things got even crazier when the Justice League showed up announced! AMAZING!

Yesterday I went to the Wireless Festival and it was SO. MUCH. FUN! The line-up is pretty shocking this year, I must admit. It’s definitely not worth the money (especially compared to previous years I’ve been) but luckily for me, I got a press pass – which I have never done before! Here’s the lowdown and my pics!

Independence Day: Resurgence – Film Review

ind2

I was never a huge fan of the 1996 movie Independence Day, so I didn’t get why this was necessary. Turns out, Independence Day: Resurgence was massively unnecessary – it is pretty much a rehash of the original and doesn’t add anything particularly refreshing or exciting. A wasted opportunity tbh.

Concussion: Film Review

Will Smith scored a Golden Globe nomination for Concussion and it was released in the U.S. aaaages ago so I was keen to see what the fuss was about and I can safely say that it is such an incredible true story and Smith gives his best performance in years.

Top Films for February

feb1

It’s the start of a new month which means my usual ‘what to watch’ list. Most of January’s list was comprised of the U.K. playing catch up with releases that had been out in the U.S. for months – but in February we finally get some actual 2016 movies like Deadpool and Zoolander 2. YAAAAY! Here’s my run-down of February highlights:
