Bojack Horseman Final Season Recap

Bojack Horseman has had such an odd trajectory as a television series. Debuting on Netflix in late 2014 in the same year as the second seasons of the then-Netflix juggernauts, Orange is the New Black and House of Cards, Bojack Horseman looked from the outset, to be a fairly amusing but ultimately forgettable adult animatedContinue reading “Bojack Horseman Final Season Recap”

Horror Tuesday: [rec] (2007) Review

This 2020, every Tuesday I will reviewing a horror film, and this week we have 2007’s [rec]. After reviewing the older horror classic, 1961’s The Innocents last week, I returned to reviewing more modern horror movies this week, with 2007’s [rec]. Rec is a pivotal example of the found-footage horror genre, one of the mostContinue reading “Horror Tuesday: [rec] (2007) Review”

Weathering With You (2019) Quickie Review

Makoto Shinkai’s follow-up to Your Name is Weathering With You, a really lovely animation from Japan. Your Name was an extremely influential film, becoming the highest-grossing anime film and Japanese film of all time, and so his follow-up was always going to be highly anticipated. The plot is set in an alternative reality of sortsContinue reading “Weathering With You (2019) Quickie Review”

Horror Tuesday: The Innocents (1961) Review

This 2020, every Tuesday I will reviewing a horror film, and this week we have 1961’s The Innocents. This week marks the first time I have reviewed a film for Horror Tuesday that was not made in the 21st century.

Sex Education: Season 2 (2020) Review

After the Stranger Things-free 2018, Netflix were after a new huge smash hit that appealed to it’s young audience, and then arrived the brilliant Sex Education over a year ago. Much like Stranger Things, the show gained a word-of-mouth success, and soon became a hit with viewers – so much so that when Netflix announcedContinue reading “Sex Education: Season 2 (2020) Review”

Horror Tuesday: The Wailing (2016) Review

This 2020, every Tuesday I will reviewing a horror film, and this week we have 2016’s The Wailing The Wailing is a very odd film, to say the least. Although it is mainly rooted in horror, the film also finds itself in many genres, including mystery, supernatural, thriller, suspense, and most strangely, at times comedy.Continue reading “Horror Tuesday: The Wailing (2016) Review”

Horror Tuesday: The Orphange (2007) Review

This 2020, every Tuesday I will reviewing a horror film, and this week we have 2007’s The Orphanage. The Orphanage has always been a horror film that I’ve been meaning to watch, but have never got around to it. It has appeared on some “Best Horror Films” lists, but somehow still seems underrated and seemsContinue reading “Horror Tuesday: The Orphange (2007) Review”

2020 Oscar Nominees that Probably Won’t Happen but Should

The 92nd Academy Award nominations are being announced on Monday, and almost immediately, suspect some snubs and pleasant surprises for everyone (including me) to praise and criticise. While films like Parasite, The Irishman, Marriage Story, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and 1917 are all guaranteed success, and other films, like Little Women, Ford v.Continue reading “2020 Oscar Nominees that Probably Won’t Happen but Should”

Horror Tuesday: The Host (2006) Review

This 2020, every Tuesday I will reviewing a horror film, and this week we have 2006’s The Host. 2019 has been a hell of a year for director, Bong Joon-ho. The South Korean director has been making films since 2000 with his debut Barking Dogs Never Bite, and has become one of the biggest SouthContinue reading “Horror Tuesday: The Host (2006) Review”

My Top 15 TV Shows of 2019

There have been some fantastic television this year. Television cultural phenomenons like Game of Thrones and The Big Bang Theory ended this year, as did other critically acclaimed television shows like Veep, Broad City, Orange is the New Black and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Meanwhile, television shows that recently premiered this year, like The Mandalorian andContinue reading “My Top 15 TV Shows of 2019”

My Top 15 Films of 2019

What a year 2019 has been for film. We have had huge event movies like Avengers Endgame, extremely polarizing movies like Joker, disappointing sequels like Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and It: Chapter Two, and critically acclaimed films like The Irishman and Little Women. Here, however, are my personal favourites of the year. Firstly,Continue reading “My Top 15 Films of 2019”

Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) Review

2017’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was possibly one of the most surprisingly great films of all time. A sequel-cum-reboot to the 1995 Robin Williams film could of ended up feeling like a cynical cash grab, but with four great central performances and a wonderful script, it ended up being a fun winter-time treat. TheContinue reading “Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) Review”

A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood (2019) Review

You’d be forgiven for thinking that this film is a biopic focusing centrally on Tom Hanks portraying Fred Rogers – primarily known for the American childrens’ show, Mister Rogers’ Neighbourhood (which ran for 33 years between 1968 to 2001) – from the amount of awards buzz from his performance (and having just nabbed a GoldenContinue reading “A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood (2019) Review”

Marriage Story (2019) Review

Noah Baumbach has been on a roll recently – coming out with really insightful and interesting comedy-dramas in the form of While We’re Young (2014), The Meyerowitz Stories (2017), and now possible Oscar contender, Marriage Story. The film, influenced by various films, such as multiple Oscar winner, Kramer vs. Kramer (1979), takes a detailed andContinue reading “Marriage Story (2019) Review”
