Spotlight (2015)

‘Spotlight’ is based on a true story about a multiple decade cover up by the Catholic church in Boston and a team of reporters trying to uncover this corruption and bring it to light. The team of reporters, known as “Spotlight”, hence the title, added with the double meaning of shining a light onto this[…]

Hal

Hal (2013)

This film is a combination of ‘Her’ and the Black Mirror episode ‘Be Right Back’ (Coincidentally, all three of these were released in 2013), wrapped together by beautiful and traditional Japanese animation. It’s quirky, charming, cute and has a pretty good story.

Into the Woods (2014)

‘Into the Woods’ is a film of two halves, which is the number one sign that a film is based on a play or musical as it is very difficult to take a 2 act structure of a play and mould it into a 3 act film without affecting the overall flow.

Trainwreck (2015)

The Revenant (2015)

I went into this film knowing that it was going to be very good, but in all honesty I had doubts whether it was going to be as good as critics had said, mainly because of Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s previous film was ‘Birdman’ which I thought was very good but nowhere near as amazing as[…]

Creed (2015)

I’ll start things off by saying that ‘Creed’ has received glowing reviews from critics and audiences, stating that it honours the older films but also paves a new path for itself and a fair few people are even calling it the best Rocky film ever. I am left absolutely befuddled as to how people love[…]

Legend (2015)

I’ll get this out of the way and say that this film was not at all what I expected and in all honesty, what I wanted from a film that is supposedly about The Krays. Going in to this film I expected it to be all about their rise and eventual fall and all the[…]
