Apologies for the lack of posts recently but quite frankly there has been absolutely nothing going on film-wise in the last few weeks. Thanks in no small part to the arrival of the World Cup, which causes studios to delay their films here in the U.K for at least a month. But never fear things…

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

In 2015 two of the most popular franchises returned after many years of absence, and in an odd way both had very similar temperaments. Jurassic World and Star Wars: The Force Awakens each springboarded their new stories off a deep-rooted nostalgia, repeating plot beats and even structure to gift fans with pretty much exactly what…

Hereditary

We open to the nerve jangling sound of discordant strings, immediately sensing that something is not right. After a brief newspaper obituary appears on screen, its everyday nature coupled with the foreboding music helping to offset even more, we cut to what looks to be a dolls house. As the camera moves ever closer to…

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story is a good film. Now that may not sound like the most ringing of endorsements, but you have to take into account just what this production has gone through in order to reach our screens. Pressure was already on the film from the moment of announcement, notably from the fan…

Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2 is almost critic proof. The Merc with a Mouth so brazen with a fourth wall breaking joke that it would be a likely bet he’d make a crack about sequelitis during said sequel. So it comes to pass (albeit in the trailer-as per a lot of comedies there is a fair chunk here…

Tully

You only have to ask the mum from Home Alone, being a mother is tough! Sleepless nights, exhaustive repetition and the prospect that despite all your efforts your child could still grow up into something disappointing or even worse downright horrifying (see We Need to Talk about Kevin). If the movies are to be believed…

Avengers: Infinity War

It’s finally here. An event 10 years in the making. But is it an epic worth the name or have Marvel finally bitten off more than they can chew? Avengers: Infinity War is a big film!! A very big film. Over 20 lead characters, a 10 years in the making story and 18 films in…

Review Round-Up

Last week I found myself doing something I hadn’t done in a long time, venturing to the cinema for a three in a row film whammy. I’d forgotten just how fun these can be, gazing upon multiple films all offering differing experiences. Sometimes you can gauge in just the right way that the films in…

In the words of Dolph Lundgren, “I’m Back”..wait that’s not right…

Before we get started let’s discuss the major event in my absence, the new Avengers: Infinity War trailer, obviously! The extreme secretive nature of the film and its potential to completely change up the MCU, Kevin Feige has spoken repeatedly that this film represents an ending for this current version of the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes,…

Black Panther
