    Palmer

    ★★★½

    Apple TV's latest gem Palmer, starring Justin Timberlake, Alisha Wainwright, June Squibb, Juno Temple and Ryder Allen, follows the story of former high school football star Eddie Palmer who, after 12 years in prison, returns home to put his life back together, and soon forms an unlikely bond with Sam, an outcast boy from a troubled home.

    Not often has a film surprised me in the manor Palmer has. Fisher Stevens has long been a director I've admired, directing critically…

  • Pieces of a Woman

    Pieces of a Woman

    ★★★½

    Directed by Kornél Mundruczó and starring Vanessa Kirby, Shia LaBeouf, Benny Safdie and Ellen Burstyn, Pieces of a Woman is an incredibly grounded and intensely personal storyline that follows a young mother's home birth that ends in tragedy.

    This is, completely, Vanessa Kirby's film. She's utterly outstanding in the leading role with her performance standing out as one of the best I've seen in quite a while. She draws us inside Martha's mental state to the point it feels like…

  • Penguin Bloom

    Penguin Bloom

    ★★★½

    Netflix's latest release, Penguin Bloom, starring the great Naomi Watts and the ever dashing Andrew Lincoln is a sweet, charming true story that holds a compelling narrative surrounding one's acceptance of their identity in the face of harrowing circumstances. Following an unlikely ally who enters the Bloom family’s world in the form of an injured baby magpie, that they end up naming Penguin, its arrival makes a profound difference in the struggling family’s life after Sam (Naomi Watts) ends up…

  • (500) Days of Summer

    (500) Days of Summer

    ★★★★½

    I first saw (500) Days of Summer at a point in time I heavily related to it for all the wrong reasons. Unhealthy relationships, bad habits and disappointed, depressed moods were all too common a thing. I related to the character of Tom and whilst his behaviour is quite unhealthy and some may even say ‘moronic’, I couldn’t help but shake the feeling it was trying to educating me on the situation I was in. 

    It’s sad looking back on…

  • Promising Young Woman

    Promising Young Woman

    ★★★★

    Promising Young Woman will undoubtedly go down as one of the year's most polarising films. Director Emerald Fennell tells the story of a young woman named Cassie (Carey Mulligan), who's traumatised by a tragic event from her past and begins to seek vengeance against those who were involved. It's a polarising film that you'll ever love or hate. But there's one thing that stands out above the rest, everything Emerald Fennell touches, whether it be the story or direction, turns…

  • Godzilla

    Godzilla

    ★★★★

    Answer me this. Who doesn't love watching a huge ancient lizard battle weird creatures for 2 hours? Exactly, no one!

    Godzilla 2014 is brilliant! Despite an awful marketing campaign highlighting Bryan Cranston as the main character, a blatant lie to draw in more people off the back of his success in Breaking Bad, the movie actually turned out great. Aaron Taylor-Johnson has always been an actor I've enjoyed and, alongside Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen and Ken Watanabe, allows for the…
