Bombshell is an emotional and empowering movie, in the wake of the #metoo movement. It showed the struggles women face in politics / working industry and how some women are forced into selling their looks/self worth to get their dream job or keep the peace. The film shows how women work together to stand up for themselves, their rights, their bodies and what they believe in. Read More

I was really looking forward to this film what with it’s famous cast including Daniel Craig, Jamie Lee Curtis , Toni Colette and Chris Evans and especially as it opened to rave reviews prior to my going to see it.

Midway (12A)

By Film Club

Release Date: 8th November 2019

3/5 Stars

Midway is the non-fiction story of the initial USA and Japanese conflict of WW2, and it being the anniversary of Armistice makes the movie even more impactive. However as the film has been released post the summer boom and having come across minimal marketing I fear it may not be well seen by audiences at the cinema. This would be a real shame as the film’s conflict scenes are visually amazing. Read More
