    Ready Player One


    The Adventure Genre gets a 1-Up
    I went in with no real anticipation and this FAR exceeded any expectations I had.
    I feel like this was made for film fans like me, bursting with a ridiculous amount of Pop Culture references which left me with a massive smile on my face throughout.
    Where it may begin a little exposition heavy, it quickly sucks you in with incredible visuals - especially the race sequence - an interesting story and characters that…

  • Annihilation



    2018: The Next Odyssey.
    Films like Annihilation don’t come around that often so when they do we have to savour them.
    Garland somehow tops Ex Machina with one of the most original and visually stunning experiences I’ve seen in a long time.
    Although having it on Netflix may get it in front of more eyes, Paramount have done a massive disservice not showing this on the big screen in the UK because that is how is deserves to be shown.
    We are going to be talking about this for a long time.

  • Eraserhead



    David Lynch, Are You Okay?
    I don't even know how to review Eraserhead.
    When speaking about it, I was told:
    "You will never forget the day you first watch Eraserhead."
    What was done as a debut with a small budget with no colour, just terrifying visuals and atmospheric sound is ridiculous.
    Don't ask me to explain it, hell I don't even know how much I liked it. But Eraserhead freaked me out more than most horror films I've seen and that says so much.
    There truly isn't another film like Eraserhead.

  • The Ritual

    The Ritual


    If you go down to the woods today, you’re in for a big surprise.
    Reminding me a lot of The Decent, this film shows how good British horror can be.
    With a great cast that were believable as a group of LADS, Spall being a stand out and so many horror tropes mashed into one from psychological, monster to spiritual. This could have been a mess but it balances everyhing just right with a end result which I think is too good to live on Netflix.

    Game Night


    And I thought Monopoly was Intense.
    An unexpected surprise. Game Night manages to balance an interesting concept, a great cast and hilarious humour and timing.
    Bateman will always hit my funny bone and this is no exception.
    It’s surprising to see such a fresh and original comedy in cinema and I hope this starts a trend of many more.

  • Phantom Thread

    Phantom Thread


    What Fifty Shades wishes it can be.
    The power play in this film is absolutely outstanding. The two leads battle it out always one-upping each other creating tension and intrigue I wasn’t expecting. Day-Lewis was fantastic as always and Krieps was a unexpected surprise. After this and There will be Blood, I can’t wait to watch more of Day-Lewis’ and Thomas Anderson’s work.
    Award Season is STRONG this year.
