Widows (2018)

I honestly think that Steve McQueen is one of our generations greatest directors, and he shows an incredibly ability to show brilliant characters that are versatile. And after a slight quiet period, he is back with his latest film, Widows. Naturally, I felt apprehensive with this, but once the trailer hit it got me really... Continue Reading →

Slaughterhouse Rulez (2018)

Naturally around Halloween there are films that are inflected with horror tropes and themes. And more often than not, there is a film that is tongue and cheek with it’s approach. And for me, the best ones are always the British ones. One such film doing the rounds this year is Slaughterhouse Rulez. I only... Continue Reading →

The Hate U Give (2018)

One film that I hold very dear is John Singleton’s Boyz n the Hood because of the message of ‘Increase the Peace’ that is nurtured throughout the film. For me The Hate U Give very much felt like a modernised Boyz n the Hood, not because of the subject matter, but because of the characterisations... Continue Reading →

Halloween (2018)

I was initially very, very apprehensive about the sequel to Halloween, as the John Carpenter original is very dear to my heart. It was the first film that actually terrified me and made me sink into my chair as the story unfolded. Naturally, I was sceptical about the remake, especially with Jamie Lee Curtis returning....

A Star Is Born (2018)

A Star Is Born has garnered many different incarnations, ranging from Hollywood films, to musicals and even a Bollywood imagining of one of the most remade films in history. Truthfully, I’ve not actually seen any of prior incarnations, but it still left me feeling unsure what to anticipate from Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut. However, from... Continue Reading →

The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018)

After having a gap year of sorts, Chloe Grace Moretz is back to captivating audiences in movies, but this time, it’s The Miseducation of Cameron Post. Recently LGBT films have becoming thicker and faster, which is great for the representation of that community. And on a large scale, they haven’t been hastily thrown together films...

The Children Act (2018)

Ian McEwan has been on a slight tear with his films being adapted for the silver screen, with On Chesil Beach being released earlier in the year and now the latest Emma Thompson-led piece The Children Act being originally a novel written by Ian McEwan. McEwan himself has adapted both of the aforementioned films into... Continue Reading →

BlacKkKlansman (2018)

Now that the summer season of blockbusters has slowly drawn to a close, it’s time to enter the conversation for the films that are likely to be picking up the big awards come the Winter. I’ve not seen anything at this moment that has made me think of the awards season, but that changed after... Continue Reading →

Christopher Robin (2018)

First and foremost, I do not hold the fabled characters created by A. A. Milne dear to my own heart. My childhood did not really involve Winnie the Pooh and his friends from what I remember, so I wasn’t sure what to make of Christopher Robin going into it, other than what seemed to be...
