Film Review: Suffragette

16th October 2017

5/5 I could absolutely kick myself for not watching Suffragette sooner. Released in 2015, it has taken me a long while to get round to watching it – mainly due to not being in the “right” mood to watch it. Turns out I’d been putting it off for no reason. You don’t have to be in a […]

Film Review: All the Way

12th October 2017

5/5 It is rare that a recent film documenting monumental events in history is as good as HBO’s All the Way. While we had Selma and 12 Years a Slave, some of Hollywood’s historical outputs are a total flop. 2016’s Jackie documenting the life of Jacqueline Kennedy following the assassination of JFK was dull and plain and made me wonder […]

Could the Tomb Raider Movie Work?

21st September 2017
