    Tenet

    ★★★★

    Tenet is the latest mind-boggling blockbuster from Christopher Nolan. Just like Inception and Interstellar before it, Nolan attempts to outdo anything that has come previously and, in terms of complexity, he certainly succeeds!

    Known only as The Protagonist, John David Warrington’s character is thrust into a time-bending world of espionage where he must save the world from a threat more deadly than a nuclear war.

    The story is very complex and it takes a lot of exposition to explain the…

    Red Dwarf: The Promised Land

    ★★★★

    ‪Even though Red Dwarf has been on TV since 1988, I didn’t become a fan until 11 years later after Series VIII was broadcast in 1999. My first memory of the show was hearing my friends talking about the new Series VIII during break times at high school. My friend Sarah offered to loan me her Red Dwarf VHS tapes and I watched one a day until I was fully caught up.‬

    ‪I instantly became a fan! However, this was…

    Madame Web

    This is the movie equivalent of the ‘Spider-Man’ sex act where a man ejaculates into his hand then flicks it in his partner’s face like a spider web. You start off hoping for a fun time, but in the end it’s just an unnecessary warm sticky mess that leaves a bad taste in your mouth and a sting in your eye.

    Possibly my favourite film of the year!

    I’ll be honest, the trailers didn’t really do much for me. I like Barry Keoghan so I knew I was going to see it at some point, but I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it as much as I did - and I loved it!

    It’s funny, uncomfortable, thrilling and sexy. Great performances from the entire cast, especially Barry Keoghan. I hated most of the characters but I was strangely so drawn to them…

    Watched in 4D - I turned on the electric fan on the highest setting. Intense!

  • Nativity!

    Nativity!

    ★★★

    Don't get me wrong, as a primary school teacher who has regularly been responsible for the school nativity, I quite like this film. However, I do have my reservations about Mr Maddens' competency as a teacher.

    10 reasons why Mr Maddens is a terrible teacher:

    1) Regularly putting children down and telling them that they are useless.

    2) Relies too heavily on negative behaviour strategies, such as sending children to detention.

    3) Divulging his personal life to the children, such…
