  • Thor: Love and Thunder

    Thor: Love and Thunder

    ★★

    I was pretty disappointed with this film, especially since Thor: Ragnarok is up there with some of my favourite films of all time. 

    It just felt too pantomime-y. The script writing and execution of thus was, in my opinion, absolutely dire. The acting made me cringe throughout, ruining plot points that would otherwise have been serious or more funny. 

    There were some laugh out loud moments, but most of the laughs felt like they were aimed more at children. 

    Overall,…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Rebecca

    Rebecca

    ★★

    Apart from a colourful and romantic beginning and stunningly shot scenes of British seaside manor houses, this film was pretty dire. 
     It dragged on so much, most of the characters being simply irritating and unlikable. I wasn’t invested or engaged in it at all, and there was so much that could have been solved by better communication (although I suppose you could say that for all things). 
    Overall, it was pretty cinema to cover up a dull plot line with twists that were meant to shock but barely caused surprise.

  • Willy's Wonderland

    Willy's Wonderland

    ★★

    I have never seen such an awful film that was simultaneously so good. The acting? Terrible. The plot? Horrendous? The execution? Dire. Did I somehow still love it? Yes. Am I going to watch it again? Probably.

  • Cinderella

    Cinderella

    ★★

    It wasn’t as bad as I was initially expecting, if I’m honest. But it was the one of the most cringeworthy films I have ever seen. Some of the acting was dire, and most of the humour was pretty off timed. 
    It was a cute film for maybe 6-11 year olds? But I feel like it’s marketing itself to older teens and adults, especially because of the odd choice of cast members. Honestly when James Acaster and Romesh Ranganathan showed…

  • The Lighthouse

    The Lighthouse

    ★★

    I didn’t enjoy this film as much as I thought I would. The concept was well thought out, but the film was mostly made of of the two men silently completing chores around the lighthouse. It is hard to get through at times.

  • In the Heights

    In the Heights

    ★★

    I feel like it could have been condensed into an hour and a half rather than two and a half hours, and some of the songs were overly lengthy and/or incomprehensible.
    I was bored senseless.
