    Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

    ★★★★

    This sequel lacks some of the Christmas magic that makes the first one such an essential festive staple, but still retains so much charm and laughter. New York at Christmas is irresistible, and Tim Curry's Grinch-like smile is terrifying!

  • The Farewell

    The Farewell

    ★★★★★

    Beautiful and heartbreaking with a captivating lead performance from Awkwafina. Explores not only the East/West cultural differences with terminal illnesses and attitudes to life & death, but also the depth of family ties and staying connected to your culture regardless of distance. 

    A fantastic script with a great amount of humour which had the whole cinema roaring. I’ll never forget how this film made me feel!

    I feel like I've been in a coma for the past twenty years. And I'm just now waking up.

    What is your purpose in life? How do you see yourself? How do you interact with other people? Is your life turning into one big routine?

    This film teaches you how to look closer at life, discover new things, and have a better understanding and appreciation of human nature. Never judge a book by its cover; there is always much more…

    The Shawshank Redemption

    ★★★★★

    One of the most impressive King adaptations, and I would say it contains the best performance every cast member has given to this day.

    I love the way it expresses the need for friendship, bravery, freedom, and above all - hope. A powerful film that is clearly standing the test of time.
