Collabs: What’s Your Favourite? – Lucy Buglass from Lucy Goes to Hollywood

This podcast was an absolute blast! It was really nice to talk about random things I like, all the way from my favourite food to my favourite season, as well as film related things too. I had so much fun and it was just like talking to a friend, so big thank you to Jamie for that. Give it a listen to learn everything you … Continue reading Collabs: What’s Your Favourite? – Lucy Buglass from Lucy Goes to Hollywood

“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

LGTH Episode 5: Worst Date Movies (w/ Greg Knox)

Is this my most graphic podcast episode to date? Most definitely. I was joined by Greg Knox, host of the Worst Date Movies Ever podcast, to talk about exactly that. There’s some pretty explicit content here, so maybe not the best episode to listen to over dinner. I also learned a lot about his podcasting history, and what films he likes. Enjoy! Listen to my … Continue reading LGTH Episode 5: Worst Date Movies (w/ Greg Knox)

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. This is full of blood, guts and period sex, so absolutely not that appropriate for a first date! Listener discretion advised if you’re not into that kind of stuff.

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”

This review discusses dark topics such as death and suicide. Reader discretion advised.   Rating: ★★★★ Getting comedy right is difficult enough, let alone trying to do it with sensitive topics. But Dead In A Week (or your money back) hits the nail on the head. After several failed suicide attempts, William (Aneurin Barnard) signs a contract with veteran assassin Leslie (Tom Wilkinson), who promises he’ll … Continue reading Dark comedy at its finest: My thoughts on “Dead In A Week (or your money back)”
