It Comes At Night (2017)

I actually missed It Comes At Night on it’s initial cinema release due to a limited cinema run around me and timing. But thankfully, thanks to a handy little Film Society in Sheffield (Shout out Film Unit – Check them out) I managed to catch this. Although, it was with a sense of apprehension because...

The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017)

Although The Lobster and The Killing of a Sacred Deer are by the same director, tonally I don’t think Yorgos Lanthimos could have created two films that are completely different. The latter of the two however, has been stewing in my head for the past five or so days. In true Lanthimos fashion though, it’s... Continue Reading →

The Snowman (2017)

Personally, I think Michael Fassbender is one of the best actors in the game at the moment. And one of my favourite foreign language films is Headhunters, which is adapted from a Jo Nesbø novel, so naturally the pairing of the two was always going to be welcome with The Snowman. However, the early reviews... Continue Reading →

It (2017)

I do not want to float too, thank you very much. After 27 years, Stephen King’s IT has made a return to the big screen. I genuinely cannot remember the last time that I was terrified by a film, and the early trailers had an allure to it, so much so that I wanted to... Continue Reading →

Berlin Syndrome (2017)

A common theme from the promotional footage of Berlin Syndrome is that it seems to escalate quickly. Like, really quickly. What seems to begin as a rather innocent story, suddenly progresses into a nightmare-inducing scenario. The director Cate Shortland showed an unbelievably ability to perfectly play out the tensest of scenes in Berlin Syndrome, as... Continue Reading →

Fight Cub (1999)

I imagine David Fincher’s 1999 adaptation ranks highly is everyone’s mind and at the moment of writing, Fight Club sits tenth on IMDb’s ‘Top 250’ films. Fight Club has that popular fandom, as majority of response’s about Fight Club is that you are not supposed to talk about Fight Club. These are the first two... Continue Reading →

Midnight Special (2016)

Midnight Special was one of my highly anticipated films of last year, but unfortunately did not manage to get to see it in the cinema, but eventually it made an appearance on a streaming site that I was able to access. Jeff Nichols’ fourth feature length film looked to be quite the science fiction thriller... Continue Reading →

Before I Go To Sleep (2014)

To potentially combat the domination of Marvel and DC in the film market, there has recently been a ‘boom’ in films adapted from mystery thriller novels such as Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train, Child 44 and Before I Go To Sleep. The latter seemingly fell by the wayside as Gone Girl came out... Continue Reading →

The Girl on the Train (2016)

From a jumbled, seemingly out-of-sync trailer, I wasn’t sure what to expect from The Girl on the Train. I had expected it to be driven through the titular ‘Girl’ on the train, which is Emily Blunt’s Rachel. Instead, it is centralised through three women whose lives are all intertwined. Rachel commutes daily on the train... Continue Reading →
