  • Rebecca

    Rebecca

    ★★

    Apart from a colourful and romantic beginning and stunningly shot scenes of British seaside manor houses, this film was pretty dire. 
     It dragged on so much, most of the characters being simply irritating and unlikable. I wasn’t invested or engaged in it at all, and there was so much that could have been solved by better communication (although I suppose you could say that for all things). 
    Overall, it was pretty cinema to cover up a dull plot line with twists that were meant to shock but barely caused surprise.

  • Willy's Wonderland

    Willy's Wonderland

    ★★

    I have never seen such an awful film that was simultaneously so good. The acting? Terrible. The plot? Horrendous? The execution? Dire. Did I somehow still love it? Yes. Am I going to watch it again? Probably.

  • Cinderella

    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…

  • The Lighthouse

    The Lighthouse

    ★★

    I didn’t enjoy this film as much as I thought I would. The concept was well thought out, but the film was mostly made of of the two men silently completing chores around the lighthouse. It is hard to get through at times.

  • In the Heights

    In the Heights

    ★★

    I feel like it could have been condensed into an hour and a half rather than two and a half hours, and some of the songs were overly lengthy and/or incomprehensible.
    I was bored senseless.
