  • Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★

    I think the problem for me was, by the time I went to see it, I’d already heard such mind blowingly positive responses to this film that my expectations were impossible to achieve. 

    Maybe I didn’t relate to it as much as others seem to because I’m someone lucky enough to have a wonderful relationship with my mother and most of my close family. 

    Don’t get me wrong, I both laughed and cried, but not nearly as much as I…

  • The Adam Project

    The Adam Project

    ★★½

    It was alriiight, I wasn’t really expecting much due to the quality of Netflix’s other no-brain-power-needed-to-watch action movies so I wasn’t disappointed. 
    It was a bit of fun with some well timed same-y signature Ryan Reynolds wit, a good soundtrack, some very corny cgi and a heartwarming conclusion. It made me smile, but it was nothing special. Worth a watch if you’re lost for what to put on at your next family movie night.

  • Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

    Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

    ★★★★★

    I can honestly say that this was the single most breathtaking instalment in the Harry Potter universe to date. I was absolutely blown away. 

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen such magical landscape building. Every different setting held something new and exciting, from the huge city scapes to single room scenes. 

    The dialogue was so perfectly written, in that every character took on a depth of personality that you don’t often see, creating the perfect mix of heartwarming protagonist and grey-area antagonists. 

    I don’t have a bad word to say about it, I adored every second and a seriously considering going to see it again.

  • Midnight Mass

    Midnight Mass

    ★★★½

    I really loved this series. I was so excited to watch it because I adored Flanagan’s The haunting of hill house and The haunting of Bly manor so so much. 
    I don’t think this q u i t e lived up to its predecessors, but it was incredible nonetheless. 

    As always with Flanagan’s work, I laughed and cried and hid behind a pillow for most of it (though where hill house and bly manor focussed on the supernatural horror aspect,…

    Turning Red

    ★★★★

    This film was so cute!! Oftentimes films with a big online hype turn out to be pretty underwhelming, but this film absolutely did not disappoint. I adored it! It was the perfect mix of funny and heartwarming, with an amazing script and soundtrack that paired perfectly with a beautifully unique style of animation. 

    The message of the story is something that is so utterly important for the films audiences to hear, whether they’re adults (like myself) or children. The idea…

  • Encanto

    Encanto

    ★★★

    Maybe I didn’t enjoy this film as much as many because of its overuse on social media. I’m super late to watching this movie and have been bombarded with it since it first came out. Because of that, I found many of the songs repetitive and irritating where I may have viewed them in a different light if I had watched it when it first came out. 
    It was a beautifully animated film with a beautiful message, but it’s definitely not my favourite Pixar movie.

  • Morbius

    Morbius

    ★★

    Objectively I would rate this film one star, but the constant prevalence of fast paced action just about managed to keep me from complete boredom. But oh, was this film a complete miss. 
    It felt like I watched half a film, the first half where it’s building up to the climax of the plot. Except? There was no climax? It just ended. There was no character development. There was no big emotional happenstance. Nothing. Happened. 
    No character had enough dialogue…

    ★★★★

    The only thing that let this film down for me was the ending. It was rushed, clunky, and didn’t make any sense at all. It was like they’d gotten 3/4 of the way through the movie and gotten bored. 

    Other than that, it was one of the best movies I’ve ever seen. I’ve never seen such believable, realistic interactions between characters. Noah and Steve’s initial meetings were heartwarming and fun to follow along, all before shit gets w e i…

    The Girl with All the Gifts

    ★★★

    Although I liked the movie as a stand-alone piece, I disliked the amount of drastic changes that it made against the book. 
    I was a huge fan of the book, and seeing this film change major pieces of it just didn’t work for me. Not because I don’t enjoy artistic license of a movie, but because this time I think it was for worse, and not for better. 
    I found it hard relating to any of the characters, huge chunks…

    Little Miss Sunshine

    ★★★½

    Honestly this was the perfect film for me to watch whilst I’m stuck indoor with covid. The cast was perfectly selected, from oldest to youngest they all played their roles better than anyone could have. The story was beautifully chaotic, heart wrenching without being depressing - a balance that so many films fail to achieve - and hilarious. 
    So many films feel like a strain to watch, you’re on edge or sad, you’re waiting for something to happen or you’re…

  • Call Me by Your Name

    Call Me by Your Name

    ★★★★

    This movie did everything that the book failed to do and so much more. I wasn’t a massive fan of the novel, don’t get me wrong, the story was beautiful, but I didn’t like the way it was told. This film showed me that some stories are just made for the screen. 
    It went above and beyond my expectations to create a hazy, dream like amalgamation of northern Italy and its inhabitants. 
    It was heart wrenching and warming all at…
