Double Bill: Godzilla: King of the Monsters & Late Night

A couple of movies I’ve seen recently, in bite-sized chunks. One gargantuan monster, one late night talk show host. I think the question we’re all now asking ourselves is: who would win in a fight between these two leads? My money’s on Emma Thompson. *Minor spoilers* The crypto-zoological agency Monarch faces off against a battery… Read More

Behind Again

I’m still reviewing Halloween movies here firmly in December and that’s because I’ve been busy and lazy, a wonderful combination. So I’m going to have to squish some of my To Do list into one post, which I kind of hate but what can you do? Here’s what I’ve been watching since the end of… Read More

The Happytime Murders

The Happytime Murders (2018) If I’m perfectly honest the real star of this movie is Bubbles’ (Maya Rudolph) wardrobe. Sis can really dress. The rest of it is… not brilliant. The jokes don’t often land, it’s gross for the sake of being gross and shocking – and it just doesn’t have the heart it thinks… Read More

The Spy Who Dumped Me

The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) I loved this stupid film. I’m in love with Mila Kunis, sue me. Pair her with Kate McKinnon and as far as I’m concerned you’re onto a winner. It’s a very silly romp sure but a very good, girl power one. When Audrey gets dumped over text by her elusive boyfriend Drew… Read More

BlacKkKlansman (2018) IMDB Synopsis Ron Stallworth, an African-American police officer from Colorado, successfully manages to infiltrate the local Ku Klux Klan with the help of a white surrogate, who eventually becomes head of the local branch. *Minor spoilers* There’s a lot to say about this movie and yet I don’t think I’m going to go… Read More

Luckily for him though, a good friend… Read More

Ocean’s 8

Ocean’s 8 (2018) IMDB Synopsis Debbie Ocean gathers an all-female crew to attempt an impossible heist at New York City’s yearly Met Gala. Oh YEAH. A female-ccentric heist movie with all the glamorous trimmings and then some, this movie is a blast from start to finish. And while I was always living for the cast… Read More

Book Club

Book Club (2018) IMDB Synopsis Four lifelong friends have their lives forever changed after reading 50 Shades of Grey in their monthly book club. I’m a sucker for a silver surfer movie and have reviewed a couple already for this blog. If Keaton/Dench/Mirren is in it, take my money and my time, and let me… Read More
