Review – Kodachrome

Kodachrome, directed by Mark Raso, never feels like it reaches its full potential but still manages to deliver a touching little film. This film struggles to fully develop its stories and never feels like it earns particular moments, but thanks to a great cast, who are offered some well-developed characters; there is still something quite lovely about this film. So, let’s make our way into the review and see if this is one of those indie Netflix films worth settling down and enjoying for the night. Read more

Review – The Post

The Post

The Post, directed by Steven Spielberg, offers a compelling, well told story; filled with a brilliant cast of actors who all expertly perform their roles. I don’t mean this in a negative way: but if you’ve ever seen a Spielberg film (particularly his more recent films) then you know what you’re going to get with this one. It’s a consistent, well shot film that shows how efficient at making an enthralling piece of cinema, Spielberg is. So let’s jump into the meat of the review and break down all that, The Post has to offer. Read more

Review – Gerald’s Game

Gerald’s Game, directed by Mike Flanagan, delivers a brilliant and explorative deconstruction of its main character. Being visually smart in how it does it and keeping us gripped with a premise that keeps the tension going throughout, the film never struggles in holding your attention. But, I do feel it does one thing in particular that slightly robs it of its effectiveness and left me feeling like some of the punch had been taken out of the film in the end. So, let’s explore the many great aspects of the film and see if that one nagging issue was enough to lessen my opinion of the film, overall. Read more

Review – Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle, directed by Matthew Vaughn, is a loud, crass, childish, empty film that by the end had me completely bored by everything it had to offer. This is the type of film where it tries to fill the screen with seemingly interesting or exciting content, but if you look at it closely (to be honest you don’t have to look that close) you realise just how little this film actually gives itself to work with. I was utterly bored by the end of this film and couldn’t wait for it to be over. But why was that the case? Where did it go wrong to make this the case? Let’s explore those questions and more in my review. Read more
