Netflix Review: See You Yesterday

Best friends and genius’ C.J (Eden Duncan-Smith) and Sebastian (Dante Crichlow) have done the impossible – they’ve cracked the space-time continuum and now possess the ability to go back in time.

Rewatched: The Prestige (2006)

The secret impresses no-one. The trick you use it for is everything The Why This used to be one of my favourite movies; the story intrigued me and I remember feeling like I never confirmed the meaning of the ending. Many years have passed since I last watched The Prestige, and as I unfortunately have […]

Film Review: Avengers: Endgame

The Warning This is going to be a spoiler-ridden review. It’s not terrible but I really couldn’t help myself as my first attempt to remain vague and allow a shroud of mystery failed pretty damn quickly. However, I did manage to pull out a Spoiler Free review from this which is the very next post. Now […]

Finally Watched: Speed (1994)

Film Review: Little

Being Big is so 1988 – now as adults we spend our times wondering what it would be like to be little once more. The Synopsis Jordan Sanders (Regina Hall) is smart, confident and determined. Unfortunately she’s also a terrible person, and therefore the worst boss you could never ask for. Not that it’s entirely […]

Film Review: Us

As a person who tends to give themselves third person pep talks in the mirror. After Us, I think I’ll be staying away from reflective surfaces for a little while, instead of risking hearing someone talk back. The Synopsis A traumatic childhood experience has left a now grown and mother of two Adelaide Wilson (Lupita […]
