45 Years (Film) Review

There’s no witty intro for this week’s choice. Perhaps given the sombre subject matter of my chosen flick? Whatever it is, and whatever our thoughts on the film, it definitely throws up some feelings.

Southside With You (Film) Review 

I don’t know about you but I sometimes wonder if the world is broken beyond repair. I mean, all the bad that happens, it’s hard to process sometimes.

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (Film) Review

A tenuous link to the lady of the moment sure but what can we do? She needs to make more movies. In the meantime, we had to suffer through some Keira Knightley borderline Manic Pixie Dream Girl shit just to get a moment in the company of greatness. (Sorry, KK you know I love you). I […]
