I would normally try to avoid spoilers when giving a review and tend to try and focus on mood, writing, character and overall impressions. I touch on plot points as little a possible and describe the experience as best I can. I won't be doing that today! If you want a quick impression of WonderWoman … Continue reading WonderWoman 1984 – A messy turd!
A romantic comedy starring Andy Samberg, Cristin Milioti & J.K Simmons.

Guy Ritchie has long since steered away from the films that have made him famous. This has lead to mixed results and mostly (in my opinion) hasn’t worked out the best. Enter ‘The Gentlemen’ a London gangsta story with lots of cockney rhyming slang and bullets to boot. But is this a lock stock winner … Continue reading The Gentlemen – A Review
I think we can all agree that the shining light from the flop that was Suicide Squad was Margot Robbie's performance as Harley Quinn. She pretty much stole the show and chomp up every scene see was in. A refreshing take on an interesting character, beautiful crazy & funny in equal measures. Makes perfect sense … Continue reading Harley Quinn : Birds of Meh!
A family of unemployed manage to get a taste for the good life by integrating themselves in with a rich well-to-do family through nefarious means.

Bong Joon Ho has created a truly … Continue reading Parasite (2019) – A Must See
