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.

An action-packed mix of super powers, solidarity and cats: My thoughts on “Captain Marvel”

Rating: ★★★ 1/2 Ever since Captain Marvel was announced, it dominated social media for a number of reasons. People were either hyped, or couldn’t wait to slag it off. As a casual superhero fan I was interested to see what all the fuss was about, and how Brie Larson would perform in the titular role. Ever since I saw her in Room, I’ve been so impressed by … Continue reading An action-packed mix of super powers, solidarity and cats: My thoughts on “Captain Marvel”
