Short Film Saturdays: “Future Boyfriend”

Rating: ★★★★ This week I’m taking a look at Future Boyfriend; a quirky romantic comedy film. Running at 10 minutes, the film follows Stuart and Kaylie as they head out for a date at a restaurant. So far, so basic right? That is, until Stuart reveals to Kaylie that he’s actually from the future. Now that’s a bombshell! I really enjoyed this film from the very beginning. Whilst … Continue reading Short Film Saturdays: “Future Boyfriend”

South Korean Cinema: My thoughts on “Oldboy”

    Rating: ★★★★ 1/2 One of my goals this year was to introduce myself to a new type of cinema. I asked around and people told me I should watch some South Korean films based on the darker themes these films tend to explore. The first film on my list was Oldboy, probably one of the most famous films to come out of South Korea and … Continue reading South Korean Cinema: My thoughts on “Oldboy”

Short Film Saturdays (on a Sunday?): “Abe”

Rating: ★★★★★ It’s that time of the week again! Sorry this review wasn’t posted yesterday, I’m going to blame the heatwave and the fact England are through to the semi-finals for why I was so distracted… This week I wanted to showcase one of my favourite short films: Abe. I remember watching this back at University and being completely stunned by how amazing it was. The seven minute … Continue reading Short Film Saturdays (on a Sunday?): “Abe”

Nature vs Nurture: A review of “Hereditary”

Rating: ★★★★ As the classic saying goes… if you haven’t heard of Hereditary by now you’ve probably been living under a rock. It’s everywhere at the moment; on buses and billboards, plastered over film blogs and magazines, you name it, it’s there. It’s this season’s hottest horror film, with critics even branding it the “scariest thing they’ve ever seen”. Critical reception has been largely positive, which made … Continue reading Nature vs Nurture: A review of “Hereditary”

Short Film Saturdays: “Beneath”

  Rating: ★★★★ Beneath is a four minute short based on the horror game The Guts of the City, both created by the hugely talented Jonu Films. This is the first short film I’ve reviewed that is also a game, which immediately sparked my interest after stumbling across Jonu YouTube. I am (albeit an easily scared) fan of horror gaming so I am definitely going to pluck up the … Continue reading Short Film Saturdays: “Beneath”

Life Finds A Way: “Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom” Review

  Rating: ★★★ 1/2 After really enjoying Jurassic World back in 2015, I was excited when they announced that a sequel was in the works. I felt optimistic about it because the ending of Jurassic World left it wide open for a story continuation, and I didn’t feel like they were just making a new one to milk a franchise. It’s no surprise that I can be hugely critical of sequels, … Continue reading Life Finds A Way: “Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom” Review

Not your average neighbourhood: A review of “Unlisted Owner”

  Rating: ★★ 1/2 Found footage has definitely made a home within the horror genre, with titles such as The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity gaining popularity and infamy in recent years. With that in mind, it’s unsurprising that so many horror filmmakers want to jump on the bandwagon as the sub-genre is simple to make and the sense of realism is what makes it really scary for a lot of … Continue reading Not your average neighbourhood: A review of “Unlisted Owner”
