There are a few sub-genres in horror that I tend to stay away from, doll movies being one of them. I never grew up with the 'Child's Play' franchise and I never dared to watch the 'Annabelle' movies so naturally, when the incredible promotional campaign for 'M3GAN' started, I was a bit weary of it. … Continue reading ‘M3GAN’ Gets The Job Done.

‘Aftersun’ Is A Quietly Devastating Masterpiece.
To be completely honest, I truly wasn't going to write a piece for Charlotte Wells' 'Aftersun' but I was left with so much to feel after the movie ended that it quite honestly affected the next two days. It's all I can think about and God forbid anyone plays 'Under Pressure' because I will break … Continue reading ‘Aftersun’ Is A Quietly Devastating Masterpiece.
‘The Menu’: A Darkly Humorous & Suspenseful Dinner & Show.
'The Menu' is one of those movies that makes you wonder how on Earth a concept like the one it features has never been made into a movie before. It's such a simple concept yet it can go such a long way and the way director Mark Mylod decides to go about it is clever, … Continue reading ‘The Menu’: A Darkly Humorous & Suspenseful Dinner & Show.
‘Bros’ Is A Very Queer, Very Safe Foolproof Rom-Com.
Romantic comedies, you either love them or you cannot stand them. I would say I have a soft spot for them. There is something comforting about watching a heterosexual love story unfold from cheesy meet-cutes to dating montages to a one-sided breakup to grand gestures and happy endings. It's formulaic and safe and I love … Continue reading ‘Bros’ Is A Very Queer, Very Safe Foolproof Rom-Com.
October ’22 // Horror Movie Round-Up! (‘Barbarian’, ‘Pearl’ and ‘Smile’)
2022 continues to become the gift that keeps on giving for horror fans as more movies seemingly pop out of nowhere and become a hit every few weeks at this point. Between 'Smile', 'Pearl' and now 'Barbarian', it was tough picking which one I wanted to review and because I've been trying to catch up … Continue reading October ’22 // Horror Movie Round-Up!

‘The Woman King’: A Moving, Hard-Hitting Epic.
If 2022 has done anything for movies, it's that it brought back original blockbusters with a vengeance, I mentioned this in so many of my reviews this year but it's also worth noting how blockbusters with mainly people of colour have been so successful this year. From 'Everything Everywhere All At Once' being the highest-grossing … Continue reading ‘The Woman King’: A Moving, Hard-Hitting Epic.
‘Hocus Pocus 2’ Is Pure, Old-Fashioned Halloween Mischief.
They don't make them like they used to, Halloween movies I mean. Not horror movies or thrillers, I mean movies centred around Halloween. Of course, we have the affairs of Jamie Lee Curtis going head to head with Michael Myers but it's not really a family-friendly event is it? As a child who grew up … Continue reading ‘Hocus Pocus 2’ Is Pure, Old-Fashioned Halloween Mischief.
‘Don’t Worry Darling’: A Half-Baked Sprint To An Unsatisfying Finish Line.
'Don't Worry Darling' is a movie I was excited to see long before the drama-fueled narrative around it. The follow-up to the 2019 hit 'Booksmart' from Olivia Wilde being this mystery thriller starring Florence Pugh and Harry Styles? There was no way on Earth I wasn't going to watch this movie. When the promotional campaign … Continue reading ‘Don’t Worry Darling’: A Half-Baked Sprint To An Unsatisfying Finish Line.
‘Bodies Bodies Bodies’… I Didn’t Get It The First Time But I Get It Now!
A24's horror reign in 2022 has been one of the few pleasant surprises this year has to offer. From the newfound Ti West trilogy surrounding the movie 'X' with the prequel 'Pearl' out now in theatres and the sequel 'MaXXXine' in theatres sometime in the near future to even new and original stories in movies … Continue reading ‘Bodies Bodies Bodies’… I Didn’t Get It The First Time But I Get It Now!
I Was Pleasantly Surprised by ‘Bullet Train’.
The Summer Movie Season of 2022 has been quite an interesting moment in pop culture. The 'Top Gun' sequel dominated the box-office, aliens were reinvented in 'NOPE', Elvis became cool again and the Minions united teen boys everywhere to dress up in suits and go to the theatres. Needless to say, it was a Summer … Continue reading I Was Pleasantly Surprised by ‘Bullet Train’.
