The Lighthouse Review

Like a moth to a damn big light, the hype emanating from The Lighthouse was bright enough to attract me to a neighbouring city to experience it. I could have just said that I’d watched […]

Jurassic Park III Review

Yep, the one with the Spinosaurus. Funnily enough, the spell check on WordPress tried to change that to Tyrannosaurus. Joking aside, my spellchecker is onto something. Jurassic Park III is entertaining, but also clumsy, pushing […]

The Irishman

The Irishman Review

I’m jumping straight in and addressing the length of this film first. The Irishman is long; at 209 minutes it’s the sort of piece you need to make a commitment to. Personally, I don’t usually […]

Ronin
2020

Ronin Review

Enchanted

Enchanted Review

How had I not seen Enchanted properly before! There’s a running joke on my wife’s side of the family that her brother does a great cry of “Giselle”, before biting the back of his hand. […]
