Tall Girl Review – A Film As Vapid As It Seemed (Rating: 2/10)

I was willing to give it the benefit of the doubt, despite the widespread pre-release criticism. Even at their worst, I usually manage to find the good in rom-coms targeted at teenage girls – we’ve all been there, and I like to think that the current set of 13 year olds are getting some decent movies.

It’s understandable … Continue reading The Perfect Date Review – By The Numbers, As Expected Netflix Romcom (Rating: 5/10)

Revisiting The Twilight Saga: A Lukewarm Defence

Without sounding too sad, instead of going out clubbing with friends, I often prefer to invite them over for bad film watching. It’s always better in a group; you have people to bounce your inevitably aggressive or incredulous opinions off of. I have found during the many times that I’ve done this that the most fun is had from a film you have genuine affection … Continue reading Revisiting The Twilight Saga: A Lukewarm Defence
