Murder on the Orient Express (2017)

The legendary detective of Hercule Poirot has been around for years and everyone recognises the name. And he appears again, in Kenneth Branagh’s reimaging of Agatha Christie’s novel Murder on the Orient Express. I have by no means read the original source material, nor seen any of the previous adaptations, so I was looking forward... Continue Reading →

Good Time (2017)

It’s kind of ironic the title being Good Time because Connie seems to be having anything but, in the Safdie brother’s latest flick. I knew little of this latest offering, so did not know what to expect other than Robert Pattinson at the helm. And it has a curious opening, as the film focuses on... Continue Reading →

The Death of Stalin (2017)

Armando Iannucci has been one of the greatest forces behind British television, being responsible for The Thick of It and Alan Partridge. Having dabbled in the political satire with The Thick of It, he has decided to go into the political minefield of Soviet Russia. But what better man to do this? And what is... Continue Reading →

Loving Vincent (2017)

Everyone knows the famous works of art from Vincent Van Gogh, but if you’re like me, you know little of his life previously, aside from his apparent madness that made him cut off his own ear. In a never-been-done before film, Loving Vincent changes the way we view films, with every frame being hand painted... Continue Reading →

mother! (2017)

I am of the opinion that if a film manages to divide audiences far and wide, then that is a measure of a good film. And with that in mind it was always going to be intriguing going into mother! due to the response that it had garnered. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect... Continue Reading →

The Limehouse Golem (2017)

Here we are again! Often with period dramas, the film hangs in the balance of whether it's actually believable. The Limehouse Golem is no exception to this role as it breathes in a feel of Victorian London that is rife with grit and dirt found in the Limehouse district. But one strange thing about The...

Detroit (2017)

Hate only breeds hate. One of the tensest I’ve been in the cinema was earlier this year with Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. Kathryn Bigelow’s Detroit is a close second, and she places you dead centre in the 12th Street Riots in Detroit, amongst the police brutality and racist tension that was rife in 1960s America. Before... Continue Reading →

A Ghost Story (2017)

This is not a horror film.   Before you think it is, A Ghost Story is not a horror film, it is anything but. Although Ghost appears in the title, it’s rather a comic ghost that situates itself throughout the best part of this film. One of the first things I noticed about A Ghost... Continue Reading →

Dunkirk (2017)

War is hell. Absolute hell. And that is exactly what Christopher Nolan has chosen to portray in his latest venture, Dunkirk. However, unlike Saving Private Ryan and Hacksaw Ridge with their glorious actions sequences, Dunkirk rather takes on a subdued approach to the war. Christopher Nolan is an absolute visionary of a director, with his... Continue Reading →
