For my March Blindspot series pick I chose something recent to shake things up. Blue Is the Warmest Colour is a French movie from 2013, which won big at the Cannes’ film festival and made waves in the blogging community.
I spy with my little eye a pretty sh*tty spy. No offence to anyone in this movie but Red Sparrow fails to deliver the thrill, the excitement and the intrigue a true spy movie should have.
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.
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 […]
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.

My knowledge of Tonya Harding was non-existent before I watched this autobiography-type movie of her life, career and possible destruction of both. I say possible because at the end of the day, the doubt remains. Did she? Or did she not? And I feel like Margot Robbie managed to amplify the mystery by playing an […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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, […]
