JACKIE (2017)

So, why do we remember Jackie Kennedy? The mention of her name doesn’t mean that much to me, because she was around before my time, just like many of you reading this. It only takes a quick look at the past to see what an inspirational and iconic figure she was. But I’ll skip the history […]

5 Great Movies From The 2000s That No One Talks About

Not all great movies are blockbuster hits. Unfortunately, many really good films slip through the cracks and get forgotten about. This decade of cinema is remembered for big names like The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Dark Knight, but what about the underdogs? You can forget the popcorn with the list you’re about to read […]

6 Essential Comedies

Forget about family friendly comedies and anything starring Adam Sandler post-90s. I like the best of the best, so that means comedies that aren’t afraid to push the envelope. I’m talking about films with ballsy humour and those that can make unfunny subjects funny. Say goodbye to PG-rated comedies and watch these instead… This is […]

Some films make you feel good inside. Some can scare you, make you laugh and others can make you want to fist pump the air. But there are films that can rip you to pieces, tear away at any hope you have, and force you to accept that the world is a monstrous place. This […]

The 10 Best British Urban Films

To say that the British urban genre is the most disregarded film genre would be an understatement. I’ve seen a lot of these films over the years, the good ones and the bad ones, but they always take a no-nonsense approach to serious themes concerning race, poverty, drugs and other societal problems. These films are […]

It Follows (2014)

The premise of It Follows sounds like the worst film ever when said out loud. But sometimes the best ideas are the unusual ones. This thrilling horror focuses on teenager Jay (Monroe), who after sleeping with her new boyfriend, becomes the target of a supernatural entity – a curse passed on through sex. There are clear […]

The Strangers (2008)

It doesn’t seem right to call The Strangers a horror film because it’s atypical and not particularly scary. Yet if the events depicted in this movie were to actually happen, there’s no doubt you’d be traumatised for life. It’s a home invasion film, after all, which focuses on a young couple who are terrorised by three masked […]

Sicario (2015)

Sicario is the kind of the film that you just don’t want to end. The story, characters and immersive gun-fights had me hooked, and I would honestly pay dividends for an extended cut. Sicario is a brilliant thriller, which takes the viewer on an intense journey through Mexico, where we are aligned with FBI agent Kate Macer (Emily […]

Nocturnal Animals (2016)

Is revenge really a dish best served cold? Nocturnal Animals seems to think so. Ford’s thrilling second feature is an artistic film, telling a dark and twisted story within a story about love and vengeance. Its three interrelated stories reflect and contrast one another, but are focused around Susan (Adams), a successful art gallery owner, who […]

Disposable: Thrilling Short Film

Indie films always know how to be hard-hitting, poignant and challenging in ways that are genuinely meaningful and creative. Disposable is five-minute film, focusing on a young man with a love for violent movies, who one night brings violence to the shadowy urban streets, in more ways than one. If you’d rather watch a big-budget blockbuster, that’s […]

Barry (2016): Coming-Of-Age Obama Movie

A movie about Barack Obama, titled Barry? I had my doubts, but it was actually pretty good. Barry is the second film to portray a young Obama, and it delves even deeper into the President’s past. It depicts his first year at Columbia University in 1981, where he struggles to stay connected to his mother and […]
