Black Panther

Black Panther (2018)

Movie

After every Marvel movie, I have either the urge to write a review or I don’t. With Black Panther I still felt a little confused about which way to go for a long time. As you are reading this, I have decided to write a review, but I am still a little hesitant.…

Cloverfield Paradox

The Cloverfield Paradox (2018)

Movie

When it comes to sci-fi, I prefer simple and sophisticated. Something that The Cloverfield Paradox could have been but was not. The potential was there and the cast was there. Yet the movie decided to complicate matters by adding more and more elements. By the end it muddles itself into a very mediocre sci-fi movie in a franchise where 10 Cloverfield Lane is still the strongest entry.…

Call Me By Your Name (2017)

Movie

Love is ugly. Yes it is beautiful and heart warming, but sometimes it’s just brutal, painful, and not very pretty. Love is messy. Not just cluttered with emotions, but also with feelings, lust, hopes, temptation and everything else piled upon itself. Love is raw. It is unfiltered, exposed, unapologetic and vulnerable. Call Me By Your Name is a love story that is ugly, messy and raw – and it’s wonderful!…

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)

Movie

Here is a shocking fact, prior to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri I hadn’t seen any of Martin McDonagh movies. That’s right, I had not seen Seven Psychopaths (now I have!), and In Bruges (still haven’t but it’s high on my watchlist), and I’m very embarrassed by this. Though, I feel like jumping into Three Billboards (I’ll refer to it as such from now on because man what a mouthful of a title!) blind and unaware was the best kind…

Lady Bird (2017)

Movie

Loved by many, Lady Bird was high on my anticipation list for quite some time. I expected it to be an indie gem, thought provoking and filled with great performances, and to be completely honest, it met all my expectations. I’m a sucker for teen dramas, and even though I dislike annoying protagonists, Saoirse Ronan in the middle of Lady Bird and its atmosphere,  all just worked.…

Wind River (2017)

Movie

I’m going to start by admitting that this is not the first time I’m sitting down to write my review of Wind River. It’s the third time, and technically the fourth, since the first time I tried, I didn’t actually get past the title. The heaviness of the film, the impact it had, it still weighs on my heart, and to express myself through these feelings is much harder than I anticipated. Here are my thoughts, scrambled and incoherent, about…

The Shape of Water (2017)

Movie

When I saw that my local film festival was showing The Shape of Water, I knew I was going to see it. Not because it had so much hype around it (which it had), or that it sounded like an awards contender (which it is), but because it had such an out of the box plot that I just had to see it for myself. Set in the 60’s, The Shape of Water is a love story between a woman…

Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

Movie

It’s been a month since I saw Thor: Ragnarok – my first Thor movie that I experienced on the big screen. I knew it was going to be better than the first two introductions to Chris Hemsworth’s Marvel character, but I didn’t expect to walk out with so much positive energy. Thor: Ragnarok is upbeat, funny and colourful. So much so, that you are distracted by its flashiness and you end up seeing past its flaws. Includes minor spoilers from…
