The Perfection

Ummmmmmmmmm. I have A LOT of thoughts about this movie, though it will be really hard to explain it – because it is one of the weirdest rides I’ve ever been on. I think maybe going into the movie with no idea what you’re in for would be the best way to enjoy it – so maybe hold off this review until you’ve seen … Read More The Perfection

Unicorn Store

Unicorn Store (2017) A woman named Kit receives a mysterious invitation that would fulfill her childhood dreams. Starring: Brie Larson • Samuel L. Jackson • Joan Cusack *Minor spoilers* A real quickie on Brie Larson‘s directorial debut, which appeared on Netflix this weekend. Reuniting Samuel. L with his Captain Marvel co-star, Unicorn Store is as whimsical and abstract as they come. Kit (Larson) is … Read More Unicorn Store

The Dirt

April is now officially Biopics (or Based on a True Story) month, which I admit I only suggested so I could shoehorn in this movie this weekend. It’s been getting mixed reviews all over the shop so Lord knows what to expect. If nothing else at least it will be debauchery central up in here. The Dirt (2019) The story of how Mötley Crüe … Read More The Dirt

Cool Things on the Internet #1

Welcome to my new series of cool things I have recently found/seen/read on the internet. I don’t suppose we need anymore introduction than that, do we?

Velvet Buzzsaw

Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) *Minor spoilers* This is a film I really wanted to love based on its cast and premise. Unfortunately it doesn’t work quite as well as it could. Set in the pretentious and fickle world of art, it centers around a gallery – Haze – run by former punk-rocker, Rhodora Haze (Rene Russo). One evening, lauded art critic Morf Vandewalt (Jake Gyllenhaal) … Read More Velvet Buzzsaw

Maniac

Maniac (2018) Jonah Hill, Emma Stone, a depressed computer, a series of mind-bending simulations and a seemingly predestined shared destiny – what’s not to love? Honestly, not much. While everyone seemed to be tooting on about this when it first dropped on Netflix, I had a hard time getting past the first few episodes. But I wanted to give it a fair go, given … Read More Maniac

TAU

The Blog Collab is back and ready to rock with a Free For All January. Thanks for bearing with us while we took our Christmas break. Both Jill and I were having trouble getting into the festive spirit and agreed we didn’t want to do Christmas movies this time around so we had a rest instead. Welcome back! *Minor Spoilers* TAU (2018) The premise … Read More TAU

Autumn TV Recommendation: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

I’m four episodes into this show and I’m feeling a lot of things. It’s not perfect by any means. Like Riverdale, it’s taken a story we know and love, and given it a dark modern twist. I guess it’s aimed at a YA audience and that might be why I don’t love it as much as I want to. Yet, anyway. That said I’ve only … Read More Autumn TV Recommendation: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Autumn TV Recommendation: The Haunting of Hill House

It’s no secret that this girl (me) loves TV. Sue me. I particularly love good television to enjoy during the darker evenings and luckily for me, Netflix has delivered another interesting prospect in the shape of this Gothic beauty. The Haunting of Hill House (2018) IMDB Synopsis Flashing between past and present, a fractured family confronts haunting memories of their old home and the … Read More Autumn TV Recommendation: The Haunting of Hill House

Autumn TV Recommendation: Haunted

Haunted (2018) *Mild spoilers* Netflix has just released this little anthology just in time for Halloween and I’m quite stoked about it. I spent the majority of Sunday bingeing it in my pajamas and although I will concede that it won’t change your life, it does explore some interesting stories. What makes it especially chilling is the fact that these tales aren’t tales at … Read More Autumn TV Recommendation: Haunted

Autumn TV Recommendation: The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell

UGH. I’m completely obsessed with this woman – and now, this show. I woke up early (ish) this morning and have mainlined a handful of episodes in one sitting, while supping tea and being thankful for no work for another day. This is my favourite month hands down and it’s because of little gems like this. The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell (2018) IMDB … Read More Autumn TV Recommendation: The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell

Sierra Burgess is a Loser (Film) Review

Netflix is currently in the throes of a rom-com renaissance. Finally giving us smart new romantic movies, directed mostly by women, we’ve been spoilt lately with the mighty To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (2018) and to a lesser extent Claire Scanlon’s Set It Up (2018). Both movies are better than most films of this nature and I am loving it. So when … Read More Sierra Burgess is a Loser (Film) Review
