Climax (2018) Review

I have long been anticipating the latest effort from director Gaspar Noé who previously made the incredible Enter the Void (2010) and Love (2015) which I was mixed on, but overall enjoyed. Climax takes place in a remote and empty school building, where a group of dancers gather to rehearse, on a cold and wintry night….

Hereditary (2018) Review

I recently saw the new horror movie Hereditary from one of my favourite film companies A24. I was very excited given the track record for horror movies from A24 and the trailer looked very intriguing. This film completely blew away my already high expectations, right from the opening shot which has to be one of…

Deadpool 2 (2018) Review

I was very excited to see the new Deadpool movie as I quite enjoyed the first one and I am a massive fan of director David Leitch’s previous work, including John Wick (2014) and Atomic Blonde (2017). Deadpool 2 is about the forming of a team of mutant rogues known as the X-Force, lead by…

The Void (2017) Review

The Void is a 2017 film from directors Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski, which gained extra budget for the practical effects from an online campaign, so a lot of people were interested in the sounds of this movie and so it intrigued me to see it. This low budget horror film is about a police officer who…

The Best and Worst Films of 2017

2017 has been an interesting year for film, some of my favourite films were Netflix releases and some were just not released in UK cinemas or in any cinemas near me. So, as far as cinema experiences go, it has felt like a disappointing year. A movie I enjoyed a lot at the cinema was…

Mayhem (2017) Review

Mayhem is the latest film from director Joe Lynch, who has gained a cult following over the past few years with his low budget indies ranging across different genres including action, comedy and horror. This B-movie thriller is about a corporate law firm in which the main offices become infected by a virus that makes…

Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Review

Blade Runner 2049 is the newest film from Canadian director Denis Villeneuve and is the sequel to one of my favourite films of the 80s, Blade Runner (1982). This neo-noir sci-fi takes place thirty years after the events of the first film, where a new blade runner (Agent K) unearths a long-buried secret that has…

Baby Driver (2017) Review

Baby Driver is the newest film from British director Edgar Wright whose previous films are more comedic in tone, whereas his latest outing is slightly more dramatic. This crime action comedy centres on a getaway driver called Baby, who relies on the personal beat of his preferred soundtrack to be the best at his job,…

Wonder Woman (2017) Review

Wonder Woman is the latest superhero film from the DC Extended Universe, directed by Patty Jenkins who has only previously made one other film fourteen years prior.

King Gizzard (2017) Album Review

The Australian psychedelic rock band King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard (who are promising to release five albums this year) have come out with an interesting mix of eastern influences as well as an apocalyptic feel, after their previous album Nonagon Infinity was more of a lighthearted garage punk album which introduced me to the…

Search Party (2016) TV Review

I stumbled upon a show on TBS which stared Alia Shawkat who I saw in a film I thoroughly enjoyed from a couple of years ago called The Final Girls (2015). Because of this, I decided to watch the show and also from discovering one of my favourite artists Purity Ring were one of the…

Black Mirror (2011-) TV Review

When I first saw this show, it had no attention and I hoped it would get a following because of how good it was. Then, a few months ago Netflix decided to put the show on their platform in the US/Canada. The show got some recognition finally and they decided to then put it on…

Happy New Year!! (Update)

I hope you all had a great 2016, I certainly have with this blog and I could not have done it without your support! It did help that we have had some of the best films to come out in a long time. It has been tragic for blockbusters and a lot of mainstream films,…

Swiss Army Man (2016) Review

I recently got the chance to see the feature length debut film from directors The Daniels. This film (as well as having two directors with Dan in their name) star Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano. I could just tell this was going to be a cookie film, but I had no idea on how good it…

American Honey (2016) Review

I recently got to see director Andrea Arnold’s new film American Honey (which I was very excited about) having seen her 2009 effort Fish Tank and finding that to be one of the best films I have ever seen! American Honey is a coming of age tale of sorts, as we follow an eighteen year…

Your Name (2016) Review

I recently got the chance to see the new anime film that has topped the box office in Japan for the past few months, directed by Makoto Shinkai who has made some of my favourite animated films, most notably the incredible 5 Centimetres Per Second (2007). Your Name follows a boy and a girl who…

Nocturnal Animals (2016) Review

I recently got the chance to see Tom Ford’s second feature Nocturnal Animals, after enjoying his directorial debut A Single Man (2009) made seven years prior. Whilst also being one of the world’s top fashion designers, Ford has managed to use his strengths in his filmmaking by showing immaculate attention to detail. Because of this, as…
