Wild Rose Review – A Star Is Born, This Time More Truthfully (Rating: 8/10)

In the UK, particularly under the reign of the now-crumbling Conservative Party, the current attitude towards the working class runs the gamut from a patronizing use of the ‘poverty aesthetic’ to genuine hatred and vitriol. While the wealthy of this country are able to get away with bizarre and scandalous activities, the poor are held to such an unreasonable standard that deigning to purchase anything … Continue reading Wild Rose Review – A Star Is Born, This Time More Truthfully (Rating: 8/10)

The Perfect Date Review – By The Numbers, As Expected Netflix Romcom (Rating: 5/10)

Much like A24’s ownership of Lucas Hedges and Timothee Chalamet, I feel as though Netflix has decided that Noah Centineo is simply too profitable to let escape their virtual clutches. Since starring in the surprisingly decent To All The Boys I Loved Before, the 22-year-old has become a genuine teen heartthrob, thirsted after by enough people to have gathered over 16 million Instagram followers. It’s understandable … Continue reading The Perfect Date Review – By The Numbers, As Expected Netflix Romcom (Rating: 5/10)

Missing Link Review – Masses Of Style, Moderate Substance (Rating: 7/10)

Despite their consistent critical acclaim and cult affection, Laika is a studio that seems to get surprisingly little mainstream love. Coraline has gotten its fair share over time, but Kubo and the Two Strings received very little attention for being, in my opinion, one of the best films of 2016, and Paranorman is often brought into conversations on the most underrated animations in recent years. As a longtime fan, … Continue reading Missing Link Review – Masses Of Style, Moderate Substance (Rating: 7/10)

Pixar SparkShorts Triple Review: Kitbull, Smash and Grab, and Purl

Though I do love most of Pixar’s early releases (Monster’s Inc being my personal favourite), I think everyone can agree that the shorts are where some of the studio’s best work can be found. Beginning with The Adventures of Andre & Wally B and continuing up to the Oscar-winning Bao, these shorts have remained consistently critically acclaimed, and are one of the most defining elements of seeing … Continue reading Pixar SparkShorts Triple Review: Kitbull, Smash and Grab, and Purl

Bohemian Rhapsody Review: A Hollow Whistle-Stop Tour Of Freddie The Icon (Rating: 4/10)

Christ, I’ve been putting this one off for a while. The trailer gave me so much hope; every time it came on at the cinema before other movies, my excitement only increased. Then I found out about the allegations against Bryan Singer, and decided that I really wanted to avoid giving him my money for as long as possible, regardless of the quality of the … Continue reading Bohemian Rhapsody Review: A Hollow Whistle-Stop Tour Of Freddie The Icon (Rating: 4/10)
