Great lead, average film: My thoughts on “Brightburn”

Rating: ★★★ It was difficult to avoid trailers for James Gunn’s Brightburn, and as a result it was difficult to avoid my excitement too. I had very much been looking forward to this one, as I’m always interested in characters that use their powers for evil instead of good. In a similar vein to Josh Trank’s Chronicle, the film follows a teenager who starts to … Continue reading Great lead, average film: My thoughts on “Brightburn”

“Rocketman”: A dazzling, brutally honest biopic

Rating: ★★★★ 1/2 Biopics are always challenging. Trying to condense the life of a public figure into a couple of hours is never easy, which is why it can go wrong. It must be even more intimidating when your subject is still alive, and in this case, Elton John is very much alive and kicking at the age of 72. Rocketman was a project that was … Continue reading “Rocketman”: A dazzling, brutally honest biopic
