4/5 Stars

I was looking forward to the revamp of this 1970s classic which I watched obsessively as a kid, but this version was more of a horror chiller which put an interesting turn on things.  It begins with five people who arrive at a resort (Fantasy Island) after winning a contest for a weekend getaway and there, they meet the mysterious Mr.Roarke (Michael Peña), who coordinates the fantasies for all of the guests.

If you are a Jane Austen fan then this film is a MUST SEE!!! A faithful adaptation with a contemporary twist. A fantastic cast who depicted every character true to the book with great acting across the board. Anya Taylor-Joy (Emma) is cast perfectly as a shallow, vain young woman who mistakenly believes she has a gift for matchmaking but causes nothing but misery. Read More

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

4.5/5 Stars

The rise of sky walker and the return to a best for the last piece of the saga. This film is a fantastic fan service and fitting end to the skywalker series of films.

From epic battles, moments of sheer force inducing goosebumps and comedy gold from C3PO. The opening 20 minutes of this chapter was a “don’t worry guys we got you” from director J.J Abrahams. Returning the magic of star wars to the forefront of nostalgic memory.
