    Top Gun Review

    Blockbuster action movies are probably my least favourite type of movie; I’m also not a fan of legacy sequels. Top Gun: Maverick is not only one of my favourite movies of the year, but one of the best cinema experiences of my life. 

    Let’s discuss the obvious - the action scenes. The movie is crying out to be seen on the biggest, loudest screen possible, each flying scene more exhilarating than the last. The stakes are…

    Waves is definitely a movie of two halves. The first half boasts an absolutely killer soundtrack, super cool blue and red neon lights and an amazing lead performance from Kelvin Harrison Jr. To be honest, every performance throughout the entire movie is perfection, but he definitely steals the show in this half. Everything from the soundtrack to the camerawork and storyline is completely chaotic and attacks the senses, but I was all over this and…

    ★★★★

    This is known by most as Cuaron's best, and though I will never love any film as much as Prisoner of Azkaban, I can see why people hold this opinion. Grabbing your full attention from start to finish, Children of Men was a dystopian blast with a particularly intriguing and unique premise, with outstanding cinematography to match. I was fully immersed in every moment, and loved how it often played out like a virus/zombie film. It's very fast-paced with plenty…

    Exactly what you’d expect from a British Sally Hawkins flick, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The story was interesting enough; I love my history so was bound to like that element, and learning more about the lady behind the discovery was fun. Sally Hawkins was made for this role and she played it beautifully, with good side performances from all involved including Steve Coogan, Harry Lloyd and Mark Addy. The humour was as British as you can get, but…

    I watch a lot of films, and I enjoy a lot of films. However, it’s extremely rare for a film to come along and completely sweep me off my feet, take my breath away and remind me why cinema is the most important thing in my life. 

    This film means the absolute world to me, it came exactly at the right time, and I’m delighted to share my review for it. Please give it a read if you have a couple of minutes.

    We're All Going to the World's Fair

    Approximately once a year, a movie comes out that I simply do not like as much as everybody else and can't get my head around why it's so widely loved; this is that movie. For once, I'm going to stick by my opinion and not be swayed by the internet; I hated it. Besides a pretty creepy atmosphere, a couple of scares and a decent lead performance, I forced my way through this movie and the run time dragged. Nothing…
