Sierra Burgess is a Loser (Film) Review

Netflix is currently in the throes of a rom-com renaissance. Finally giving us smart new romantic movies, directed mostly by women, we've been spoilt lately with the mighty To All the Boys I've Loved Before (2018) and to a lesser extent Claire Scanlon's Set It Up (2018). Both movies are better than most films of… Continue reading Sierra Burgess is a Loser (Film) Review

Hurricane Bianca: From Russia With Hate (Film) Review

  Bianca is back and she's better than ever - is she though? Has this thinly worn narrative hit rock bottom now? I mean let's face it, the first movie although kind of cute in places, wasn't a game changer. And apart from the heavenly one-liner: "I’m fuckin’ this cat. You just hold the legs",… Continue reading Hurricane Bianca: From Russia With Hate (Film) Review

Selfie from Hell (Film) Review

We start September with a new horror currently featured on Netflix. It tackles one of the most prolific afflictions (?) of our generation (as I type that I realise that we're not actually talking about MY generation but the one beneath it, maybe even further down that that. God, I'm ancient). *Spoilers* Selfie from Hell… Continue reading Selfie from Hell (Film) Review

How to Talk to Girls at Parties (Film) Review

Welcome to Alien August! Jill and I have decided to explore the genre of science fiction, starting with this bat-shit but charming adaptation of Neil Gaiman's short story of the same name. Who knows where the month will take us? *Spoilers* How to Talk to Girls at Parties (2017) IMDB Synopsis An alien touring the… Continue reading How to Talk to Girls at Parties (Film) Review

Beach Rats (Film) Review

I'm beginning to think I should be banned from picking movies for the The Blog Collab because my last few have been ambulating snoozefests with a puffed up sense of their own importance. This week is no exception and even though you might be able to argue that it's art, it's not the kind of… Continue reading Beach Rats (Film) Review

Margarita with a Straw (Film) Review

An Indian coming-of-age tale this week and it's a pretty nice one really. Certainly more joyful than the fucking miserable Duck Butter from last week. Thank God because I was not down for that much introspection again, not for a while anyway. *Spoilers* Margarita with a Straw (2014) IMDB Synopsis A rebellious young woman with… Continue reading Margarita with a Straw (Film) Review

The Witch (Film) Review

Or: Stone the Crows! This week features a film we've both already seen but I feel like we come back to it a lot, much like The Babadook in discussion and certainly in comparison to other movies. Since it's free for all month and there's no way I could complete with last week's joyful pick,… Continue reading The Witch (Film) Review
