Short Film Saturdays: “Perfectly Natural”

Rating: ★★★★★ Despite not being a parent myself, I am very aware that new mothers and fathers struggle to balance childcare and work. There’s still an obscene amount of societal pressure on people to do parenting ‘right’, whatever that means. Some believe it’s important to keep working, whilst others think mothers should spend as much time as possible with young ones, even if that means … Continue reading Short Film Saturdays: “Perfectly Natural”

Collabs: Worst Date Movies Ever – “Excision”

  Such a pleasure to speak to Greg from Worst Date Movies Ever Podcast, where we took a look at one of my favourites: Excision.

Short Film Saturdays: “Pulsar”

  Rating: ★★★★ 1/2 Whenever I watch a sci-fi film, I expect it to have beautiful visuals and a touch of etherealness. Aurora Fearnley’s Pulsar certainly didn’t disappoint in that area, with its gorgeous cinematography and special effects standing out to me immediately. Out of all the shorts I’ve seen, this is possibly the most visually stunning so far. It’s a well-polished and technically impressive indie film. … Continue reading Short Film Saturdays: “Pulsar”

Trust No One: My thoughts on thriller “Greta”

Rating: ★★★★ It felt like I’d been waiting an eternity for Greta, and the suspense was killing me. I’d seen plenty of feedback from those who attended TIFF, and the trailer had played before so many films I’d seen in the cinema. The concept had intrigued me from day one, as I find myself very drawn to thrillers such as this one. Being stalked is … Continue reading Trust No One: My thoughts on thriller “Greta”
