The Princess Switch Review – A Christmas Movie At Its Most Fantastically Silly (Rating: 5/10)

So honestly, I’ve been meaning to watch Roma for a week or so, and haven’t gotten round to it for reasons I myself don’t fully know. Maybe it’s because I watch enough brilliant and intellectually challenging films for university, maybe it’s because I don’t have the energy this time of year, I don’t know. But somehow, in bed the other night, I ended up forgoing Roma for The … Continue reading The Princess Switch Review – A Christmas Movie At Its Most Fantastically Silly (Rating: 5/10)

Cam Review – A Chilling Allegory And A Brutal Look At The Violence Women Face Online (Rating: 8/10)

Though I’m not a webcam girl or involved in the online sex industry whatsoever, I held a great deal of empathy for what lead character Alice went through in Daniel Goldhaber’s feature film debut Cam. I think that whenever you post anything on the internet as a woman, be it a selfie, film review or blog post, you feel the tangible risk of harassment or threats … Continue reading Cam Review – A Chilling Allegory And A Brutal Look At The Violence Women Face Online (Rating: 8/10)

Peterloo Review – A Middling Account of an Outrageously Neglected Event (Rating: 6/10)

Almost regardless of the actual movie itself, I find it commendable that Mike Leigh has chosen to tackle the subject of the Peterloo massacre in such a grand, publicly available way. The slaughter of peaceful protestors in Manchester who demanded a living wage and an escape from quality is arguably one of the darkest events to happen on British soil, and in these times of … Continue reading Peterloo Review – A Middling Account of an Outrageously Neglected Event (Rating: 6/10)

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs Review -A Strange, Nihilistic, and Fascinating Movie (Rating: 9/10)

Though not the biggest fan of the Coen Brothers, I can definitely appreciate their distinct voice and commitment to filmmaking. I personally wouldn’t put any of their works in my top favourites of all time, but I had a good time making my way through classics like Fargo, The Big Lebowski, and Burn After Reading. Their recent Netflix outing, a bizarre Western anthology film named for the … Continue reading The Ballad of Buster Scruggs Review -A Strange, Nihilistic, and Fascinating Movie (Rating: 9/10)

Widows Review – A Heist Movie With A Voice (Rating: 9/10)

Having already deemed Ocean’s 8 a good genre movie with a healthy amount of entertainment value, I am now forced to re-evaluate my opinion and say that it’s a nothing movie with little value beyond the two hours and £5 I spent at the cinema to see it. Widows, on the other hand, is a film that I’m certain I’ll be thinking about for a long time … Continue reading Widows Review – A Heist Movie With A Voice (Rating: 9/10)

The Other Side Of The Wind Review – An Embittered and Dated Final Splutter (Rating: 3/10)

I’m going to keep this review short, partly because my M.E. is wearing me down now I’m in the middle of a uni term, but mostly because I feel as though this opinion won’t be a popular one, and I don’t want to drag it out for the majority who will disagree. After watching Orson Welle’s long-lost-til-now The Other Side of the Wind, rather than being … Continue reading The Other Side Of The Wind Review – An Embittered and Dated Final Splutter (Rating: 3/10)
