Goodfellas: A classic mafia film

I’ve only recently watched Goodfellas. Yeah I know ya’ll are gonna make fun of me for only recently watching this epic, so whatever haha throw the kitchen sink. I know some of you are gonna kill me if I add a bad review. Nah, I’m just foolin’ around. It’s a fantastic film. Harking back the…

Insurgent: It didn’t quite cut it.

It’s sad to see that many people’s first impression of Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller are for their roles in the Divergent series. Whatever happened to The Fault In Our Stars(Shailene), The Descendants(Shailene), Whiplash(Miles) and The Spectacular Now(both of them)? Insurgent was honestly quite disappointing.

Ida review and analysis: Bleak but subtlely beautiful

In a age where black and white films are considered ancient relics of a bygone era, some of us might confuse the lack of colour with a lack of vibrancy. Set in a bleak post WWII Poland, Ida provides a strong case that black and white films can not only be engaging but also visually…

Wild: An introspective journey, Reese Witherspoon is at her finest.

Ever felt the need to walk 1000 miles to find yourself? Maybe not. But Wild is a highly cathartic experience, filled with the ruggedness of human will and a look into the mendings of a broken soul.
