Summer Of Film

I have never been a fan of attending the cinema during the summer months, as usually the films which are shown unfortunately tend to be a disappointment to say the least. It is well known in the film industry that May-September are the months in which the biggest of the blockbusters rake in their cash….

The BFG

Okay so I’ve been waiting to see this feature for what feels like forever – as a huge fan of both Roald Dahl and Spielberg I couldn’t wait to see what this film (created by two – quite frankly – geniuses) was like. I certainly wasn’t disappointed…. Firstly, lets give readers out there that aren’t familiar…

Comic-Con Trailers – My Top 5

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them – Full-length Trailer Reveal So far we had only been given a tiny taste of the ‘new era of magic’ that is set to be released in November, so this first full-length trailer gives us more of a sense of the narrative that will unfold. To put it…

Independence Day

Recently I came across a showing of this classic science-fiction/adventure/disaster film on television, I couldn’t resist having a watch of this highly-acclaimed feature. Plus the sequel is currently out in cinemas (Independence Day: Resurgence) so it’s an ideal time to write about why you guys should go see it! 🙂 So the narrative is split into…

The Next Disney Animation…

So after what seems like forever, Disney have announced their next Disney princess. I don’t know how they’re even going to get close to the popularity of Elsa and Anna, however I’m sure that Moana will be quite the contender. So far the plot is as follows; A young woman, named Moana uses her brilliant…

Money Monster

The film stars George Clooney as ‘Lee Gates’, a TV personality who advises his audience on commerce and Wall Street. During a live show of ‘Money Monster’ he’s forcefully interrogated by ‘Kyle Budwell’, a grief-stricken bankrupt viewer who lost his money after a previous tip from Lee. The film also stars Julia Roberts as the director of the television…

Me & Earl & The Dying Girl

Me & Earl & The Dying Girl was released in 2015; however despite the success of a similar genre feature named ‘The Fault In Our Stars’, I feel this film has been very underrated. I finally got round to viewing it the other day with one of my oldest friends, here’s what I thought; So…

The Girl On The Train: Trailer Review

This is one of the best put-together trailers I have seen in a long time; I couldn’t not write a post about it. The trailer has also lead me to purchase and begin reading the novel it is based upon, ‘The Girl On The Train’ by Paula Hawkins. The novel has broken records becoming one…

Harry Potter

I am probably one of the only people of my generation that has not watched a single film or read a single novel from this globally recognised franchise. However recently I’ve had more time on my hands to marathon the films at least (I know I know I’m sorry! *cringes*) Now that I have gotten…

The Weird & Wonderful: Film

Whilst studying a course in Film and Television Production I’ve come across many weird, yet wonderful films, short films and television shows. One of the things I love about this industry is that no topic is shunned as being uninteresting or irrelevant; you name it someone’s probably made a film or television series about it….

Electricity

This is a bit of a different film to what I would normally review, and I can almost guarantee the majority of people reading this will not have heard anything about the feature. This film follows the story of a northern girl named Lily living with severe Epilepsy, therefore the film isn’t exactly light-hearted. However…
