“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

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”

A tale of two queens: My review of “Mary Queen of Scots”

Rating: ★★★ I’ve never really considered myself a massive fan of period dramas, so I tend to approach them with more caution than I would a different genre. After being pleasantly surprised by Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Favourite, I suddenly became more excited about Mary Queen of Scots. Whilst I believe the former is a much stronger film, I still had a good time with this one. The performances … Continue reading A tale of two queens: My review of “Mary Queen of Scots”
