Film (Re)View) – The Snowman

Oh dear, what a terrible film. I have to wonder whether Jo Nesbo had any input into the making of this film, as I sure as hell would never let such a terrible adaptation of my book be released! It just goes to show that a high profile actor - Fassbender - and a high … Continue reading Film (Re)View) – The Snowman

Film (Re)View – Goodbye Christopher Robin

As I sat down with my good friend to watch this film, I commented that I couldn't remember the last time I had seen a PG. She looked at me very strangely, but it's true. Believe it or not, I am a lifetime fan of Winnie the Pooh, or I was, until I saw this … Continue reading Film (Re)View – Goodbye Christopher Robin

Film (Re)View – Flatliners

I had heard that this was a sequel of sorts, carrying on from where the original left off. For that reason, I thought I'd give it a go. I then found out it was actually a remake and my heart sank. Why do filmmakers constantly have to remake iconic films? It is not necessary and, … Continue reading Film (Re)View – Flatliners

Film (Re)View – Mother!

Now, I consider myself to be an intelligent person and I have had this point validated on more than one occasion, but this movie, I have to say, completely passed me by. It's taken me a while to post this (re)view because, quite frankly, I have no words....well, almost none! Bizarre, strange, ridiculous, disconnected, madness, … Continue reading Film (Re)View – Mother!

Film (Re)View – The Ritual

I got to see this movie early as part of the Scream Unseen run by Odeon Cinemas, whereby you get to see a horror movie ahead of its release date. I was pretty excited, as the trailer looked quite chilling. I have to say though, that this is definitely an example of where the film-makers … Continue reading Film (Re)View – The Ritual

Film (Re)View – The Limehouse Golem

Wow, what a movie! Set against the backdrop of the great Music Hall in the Limehouse area of Victorian London, this tale sees Inspector Kildare (Nighy) thrust into his first ever murder case - to catch the notorious and bloodthirsty Limehouse Golem, a serial killer who likes to leave cryptic messages in a unique hand … Continue reading Film (Re)View – The Limehouse Golem

Film (Re)View – American Made

Honestly, if I didn't know that this film was based on the real life of Barry Seal, I may have walked out of the cinema, as what actually happened seems far too unbelievable to be true. How much of the film is what really happened and how much is poetic licence, I am unsure, but … Continue reading Film (Re)View – American Made

Film (Re)View – Annabelle: Creation

You know how I like my horror films, well, I wasn't disappointed with this new release from The Conjuring franchise. It was full of breath holding, stomach tightening moments, when you just didn't know what was going to happen. This tense anticipation, coupled with the creepiness of anything involving children and dolls, made this film … Continue reading Film (Re)View – Annabelle: Creation
