  • Cinderella

    Cinderella

    ★★½

    I can’t believe James Acaster is a mouse in this.

  • Valentine's Day

    Valentine's Day

    ★★½

    The highlights of this film were Taylor Swift dancing and Today Was a Fairytale playing twice.

  • The Happy Prince

    The Happy Prince

    ★★½

    “I have lived in the grip of vice and pleasure”

    Some parts of this film really landed, like Rupert Everett’s performance as Wilde, you can really tell it’s his passion project. But other parts just fell flat for me. It lacked any kind of depth and structure for the most part. It would be hard to do Wilde’s life justice anyway, but this just missed the mark for me.

  • Endless Poetry

    Endless Poetry

    ★★½

    “Poetry shall illuminate your path like a blazing butterfly”

    This was an experience. Self indulgent artist makes everyone aware that he is a great poet. It has some really interesting visuals, but it’s far too narcissistic for my liking and so many of the plot points did not sit comfortably enough with me to enjoy this.

    Helped me practice my Spanish though, so at least there’s that.
