    I do think there is something fundamentally wrong when you come out of a movie thinking that was an hour too long for its own good and not thinking about the good things you’ve just seen and there are plenty of good things on show in The Batman , it’s just a shame I had to wade through parts of a plot that were completely unnecessary. 

    Firstly I’ve got say that I thought Robert Pattinson was excellent and I also…

    Most people of a certain age in the UK will remember exactly what they were doing when they heard that Princess Diana had died .
    I do .
    I’ve never known a death affect a country so much as this did and I doubt it ever will again. 
    What we didn’t fully realise was the misery that Diana had gone through being a royal and Spencer takes us into that world , all be at for just a few days…

    After what the world has been through In the last two years I’m not so sure we’re ready for films about viruses.
    This is the story of a couple who fights to hold their relationship together as a memory loss virus spreads and threatens to erase the history of their love and courtship.

    I expected this to be a bit of a heartbreaker and it’s probably what the writer and director was hoping for but it never reaches enough of…

    This the story of Robbie who narrowly avoids jail, to try to turn over a new leaf after becoming a dad for the first time . A visit to a whisky distillery inspires him and his mates to seek a way out of their hopeless lives.

    I think it’s fair to say that this is one of Ken Loach’s more gentle movies . 
    It still revolves around crime and social issues as all his films do but it’s lacks the…

    The word masterpiece is banded around too often when it comes to movies . Not by me . 
    But this IS a masterpiece and it’s film’s like Belfast that are the reason I love this medium. 

    This is Kenneth Branagh’s semi autobiographical film about a young boy and his working-class Belfast family , who experience the tumultuous late 1960s through good and bad in Northern Ireland. 

    There is so much I want to say about this film. 
    Firstly , if it…

    The Father

    ★★★★½

    Most of us have had a loved one who has or is suffering from dementia. It’s a horrible disease that’s both frustrating for the sufferer and the carer. 

    This is an absolutely brilliant portrayal of an old man who refuses all assistance from his daughter as he ages. As he tries to make sense of his changing circumstances, and how he begins to doubt his loved ones, his own mind .

    The way this film is made is so clever…
