Knives Out (12A)

By Film Club

Release Date: 27th November

5/5 Stars

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. I also love the old style murder mysteries/whodunnits of yesteryear , the like of which have not been seen in cinemas for a long time. Read More

Frozen II (U)

By Film Club

Release Date: 22nd November 2019

5/5 Stars

What made Frozen so endearing to many audiences is the strong bond between Anna and Elsa and the themes of unconditional sisterhood and love that relationship delivered. Frozen II is smart to expand on those ideas and gives the royal sisters more time together to further their tumultuous relationship. Read More

4.5 /5

Kate and Tom meet by chance outside the Christmas shop where Kate, dressed in an elf costume is working.

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

Having loved the previous Shaun the Sheep movie we were really looking forward to watching this sequel, and we were not disappointed. It’s just as cute and just as funny  and it’s got a cuddly alien in it. An alien (Lula) crash lands her ship near Shaun’s home at Mossy Bottom Farm and once he and his fellow sheep discover her and find out that she has impressive alien powers, Read More

Terminator: Dark Fate (15)

By Film Club

Release Date 23rd October 2019

2/5 Stars

After all the hype about Terminator: Dark Fate being a direct sequel to Terminator 2 (thereby disregarding all the other franchise outings) I went in blind. (I had not seen any trailers and didn’t know the plot at all) Also having not watched the others since T2 was back in cinemas a couple of years ago, I felt cautiously optimistic. It seemed like a bit of a cash grab idea but I’m always up for seeing Linda Hamilton being a badass and you can never go wrong with Arnie! Read More

Maleficent : Mistress of Evil (PG)

By Film Club

Release Date: 18th October 2019

Review 5/5 Stars

I went to see Maleficent Mistress of Evil on Monday, I wasn’t looking forward to it but I was shocked and surprised to see such a brilliantly made film. What a treat! The film was exiting, happy, sad, and in some places scary. I really would have been happy if it had been twice the length. I did consider paying to watch it again but I had another appointment and wasn’t able to spare the time! Read More

Abominable (PG)

By Film Club

Release Date: 11th October 2019

3.5/5 Stars

This is a very well thought out DreamWorks animation movie which was great for the whole family. We all laughed and cried at points throughout this screening. There was a lot of laugh out loud moments and some very cute aaaaw moments too! There are a few twists and turns in this movie and certainly some great unexpected ones that no one saw coming!
