Bad Tales Review: London Film Festival 2020

Bad Tales is a film that for most of its run time I had no idea what was happening or even more what it was trying to say. It’s a decently made film that lacked any sort of substance and at times acted more disturbing than it actually was. Following a group a dysfunctional families […]

The Reason I Jump Review: London Film Festival 2020

Sitting down to watch this documentary I had no idea what to expect. All I knew about this film was that it dealt with autism (ASD). So when I burst into tears about 35 minutes in, I knew I was watching something incredibly special. The documentary uses the book of the same name written by […]

Shirley Review: London Film Festival 2020

Being brutally honest, I have no idea what this film was trying to be. Was it trying to be a biopic or a fictional drama. When I write reviews I tend to avoid looking at other peoples reviews before writing my own as I want my thoughts to be entirely mine and not me repurposing […]

Relic Review: London FIlm Festival 2020

Full Disclosure I think the best way to watch this film is completely blind, so please watch the film before reading this review as I feel that’s the best way to experience the film. How much you enjoy this film will solely rest upon if the film manages to sink its claws into you during […]

Tenet Review

The word Tenet is a palindrome, which means it’s the same forwards and backwards. While I won’t spoil why I personally think the film is called Tenet, the film deals with the flow of time and how effecting the flow could end the world. Christopher Nolan has never shied away from telling stories around weird […]

Ghost Master Review: Glasgow Film Festival

This film wears its inspirations on its sleeves, the film name drops many famous horror directors and the main character is literally called Akira Kurosawa (famous Japanese director who directed Seven Samurai, Rashomon and Ran). This is Paul Young’s first directing feature and while this film is not a terrible film, it can’t be classed […]

Flint Review: Glasgow Film Festival

What happened in the City of Flint, Michigan was horrible, disgusting and makes you think how could this have happened in 2014. Nobody should have to be scared of the water coming out of their taps or shower. Flint is a documentary which covers the events of what happened in Flint as it happened. The […]

Violet Evergarden I: Eternity and the Auto Memory Doll Review: Glasgow Film Festival

I’ll be honest I have not watched the show in its entirety. It’s another show that got lost in my watchlist and I know I have to watch it. So you might be thinking why did I go see this film  without seeing the show before hand. It is because I love the studio behind […]

Parasite Black and White Review: Glasgow Films Festival

You don’t realise how important colour is to story telling until you watch a film that has been presented originally in colour then shown in black and white. I had the wonderful opportunity to see Parasite in black and white at the Glasgow Film Festival 2020. This review is mainly going to focus on what […]
