The Party (2017)

Unassuming and darkly funny, The Party offers brilliant, time-bomb entertainment. It’s a sharp, finely crafted movie shot in black-and-white and thole whole thing is enjoyably ridiculous. The Party in question is brought together by Janet (Kristen Scott Thomas), a politician and her cranky husband Bill (Timothy Spall). Their guests include a smooth-talking financer, Tom (Cillian Murphy), who […]

Irish mobsters, Chris (Cillian Murphy) and Frank (Michael Smiley) lead their pack of goons to an abandoned warehouse, to […]

But get past the off-putting title and you’ll find a genuinely thrilling tale of war and resistance. For those […]

5 Horror Films For People Who Don’t Like Scary Movies

The horror genre is an acquired taste, so I understand why it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. Some people simply don’t like being scared or don’t like gore, excessive violence, and watching a film that will potentially keep them up at night.
