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”

Dark comedy at its finest: My thoughts on “Dead In A Week (or your money back)”

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)”

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”

Not as bad as I was expecting: My thoughts on “Shazam!”

Rating: ★★★   I have to admit, when I first saw the trailer for Shazam!, I felt pretty underwhelmed. It didn’t seem like the kind of film I’d enjoy. I often get tired of cringey, over the top humour, which is basically what the trailer was packed full of. Having said all of this, I ended up being pleasantly surprised by the film after agreeing … Continue reading Not as bad as I was expecting: My thoughts on “Shazam!”

A biopic that’s not just for wrestling fans: My thoughts on “Fighting With My Family”

Rating: ★★★★ 1/2 Let me make something clear before I dive into my review: I don’t like wrestling. Actually, I hate wrestling. I could barely name another wrestler aside from The Rock and John Cena, so at a glance this film really isn’t marketed towards me. But when we go a little deeper, it becomes clear that this is an incredibly accessible film with a powerful message. … Continue reading A biopic that’s not just for wrestling fans: My thoughts on “Fighting With My Family”
