Tenet Movie Review

No one could mistake Tenet as being created by anyone other than Christopher Nolan. First, it has the kind of budget that only Nolan would manage to get for an original screenplay. You can tell a lot of money has been spent on every frame of this opulent film that a scene in which gold […]

Film review: War for the Planet of the Apes

planet of the apes

This summer sees the release of the third installment of the new Apes series – War for the Planet of the Apes. Having been a great fan of the first two movies I was looking forward to this, but also slightly concerned –  Is a trilogy of Apes or just one ape too many? Thankfully […]

Film review: Trainspotting

film review trainspotting

I was pumped, not full of heroin but, with excitement to catch up with the nation’s favourite group of drug addicts, in T2 Trainspotting. I have wondered why I liked the first film so much. I was only alive for two of the years of the decade for which this movie was seminal, the music […]

Film Review: La La Land

la la land

Film Review: Jason Bourne

Film Review The Grand Budapest Hotel

grand budapest hotel

I’d been wanting to see the Grand Budapest Hotel for a long time but never actually got round to watching it until a few weeks ago on Netflix. This Grand Budapest Hotel is a light hearted, stylish and and very well written. Being a Graphic Designer, I found the style of this film to be very […]
