Review: Bohemian Rhapsody ★★★★★

Bohemian Rhapsody is a love letter to the incredible work and career of the iconic Freddie Mercury, as well as a smashing concert film that dazzles with its impressive library of Queen’s catchiest songs. Despite glaring pacing issues and a tendency to bend the facts a little too far, Rami Malek’s electric portrayal of the prodigious lead singer will remind you why music at the … Continue reading Review: Bohemian Rhapsody ★★★★★

Review: Bad Times At The El Royale

Remember that great but Bizarre film from 2012 called Cabin In The Woods? The project between Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard that managed to turn a common horror about teenagers in some spooky woods into a thriller about an illuminati-like organisation and the apocalypse?

Unlike the other eight million viewers, I was stuck on a train at 6:55pm Sunday evening, returning home after a lovely break in Wales with my girlfriend. Unfortunately combining this with dodgy WiFi and … Continue reading Review: The Woman Who Fell to Earth

Adapted from Darcey Bell’s novel, Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) directs this fast-paced, comedic crime with an almost Neo-Noir aesthetic, which feels reminiscent of hit thrillers such as Gone Girl (2014) and The Girl on the Train (2016), but … Continue reading Review: A Simple Favor
