    ★★★★

    I’ve always enjoyed the James Bond films, they’re very much films that you don’t really have to concentrate on, and can just relax and watch or an evening. This film is rammed full of car chases, fights and stunts that match any classic Bond film. What can I say? It’s just James Bond.

  • Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★★★½

    This film was astounding! Likeable characters - awakafina was hilarious as always - and great dynamics between them all. The cinematography was incredible, complimented perfectly by the musical score. 
    The only issue I would have is that it slows down slightly in the middle, however the pace of the film picks up quickly and resumes its edge-of-your-seat action feel. All in all, this was a perfect example of a brilliant marvel film.

  • Nightcrawler

    ★★★½

    I liked this film a lot. I only ended up watching it because it’s been showing up on my Netflix recommended for the last two years at least, so I figured I’d give it a go. 
    I was pleasantly surprised, it was a chilling film with an ingenious premise. Although somewhat predictable, the film remained exciting throughout, and I was still surprised at each and every twist that the film consistently threw at me. 
    At some points I felt the…

    Cinderella

    ★★

    It wasn’t as bad as I was initially expecting, if I’m honest. But it was the one of the most cringeworthy films I have ever seen. Some of the acting was dire, and most of the humour was pretty off timed. 
    It was a cute film for maybe 6-11 year olds? But I feel like it’s marketing itself to older teens and adults, especially because of the odd choice of cast members. Honestly when James Acaster and Romesh Ranganathan showed…

    ★★★½

    I honestly don’t think that this deserved all of the bad ratings it received. Sure, some of the acting was poor and the cliches and dramatisation of certain scenes were often very cheesy, but I think that this served to add to the overall charm of the film. 
    The clever nature to the challenges each victims went through was so interesting to try and puzzle out, and the film remained chilling and relatively unpredictable throughout. I liked it!

  • American Psycho

    ★★★★

    The ambiguity of this films ending is something that made it so brilliant to me, the chilling way that the plot was left in its entirety to the reader. 
    The swift flow of storytelling combined with clever repetition made it an easy and enjoyable watch. My only fault was that it was so dark it made me feel incredibly uneasy at times, but this almost adds to the overall appeal.

  • The Breakfast Club

    ★★★★★

    I’m not sure why I loved this film, as nothing really happened throughout its entirety. The characters weren’t at all likeable and the ending was dissatisfying but I adored it none the less. It was one of those satisfying portrayals into simplicity, a group of kids having fun and making new connections in detention. A classic films that has clearly withstood the tests of time.

  • The Suicide Squad

    The Suicide Squad

    I do not understand why this film is rated so highly. There was no comprehensible moment in the whole two hours. The first film was amazing -  I loved it - so I was so excited about this movie, but oh boy was it a let down. Most of the characters seemed like they had been invented by a child, their costumes and stories far fetched and unrealistic. I get that it was meant to be a more comedic, witty…

    ★★★★★

    I was blown away by this film. It’s honestly one of the best films I’ve ever seen. Fast paced and hilarious with a colourful and exciting array of cinematography. Ryan Reynolds was as always hilarious, but the rest of the cast was equally brilliant. I adored the film, and was enthralled by it constantly. There was no boring scene, no moment of mundane conversation. It was consistently enjoyable, fast paced and heart warming. A thoroughly brilliant film.

  • Cast Away

    Cast Away

    ★★★

    This was a pretty slow film, most of the scenes on the actual island were really dragged out, I’m talking minutes of silently watching Chuck walk across a beach looking for sticks or fish. It was an interesting movie, but the start and endmost scenes were the only ones I really enjoyed. All of the scenes that were meant to be “emotional” I found didn’t hit me, perhaps because of the way that they were executed but perhaps because I…

  • Jungle Cruise

    Jungle Cruise

    ★★★★

    It was a cute, family friendly action/adventure film. I don’t think I would have enjoyed it as much if the cast hadn’t consisted of who it did. It gave me Indiana Jones meets Pirates of the Caribbean vibes.
    It was definitely not worth the extreme high rating it received, but I did enjoy the film and would probably watch it again.

  • Ratatouille

    Ratatouille

    ★★★★

    This film is adorable, a classic Disney film. It’s one of my go to films for when I’m sad or sick. I love it so much, the constant Paris vibes with the aesthetic of the restaurant and kitchen environment is so calming and fun. I would recommend it to anyone.
