Darkest Hour

A film a day keeps the bad grades away?

I like to think that a good film is one that sits with you once you've left the theatre.  Either because your brain is struggling to comprehend what the Matrix is; you're blown away at how an animated character could make you feel emotions; or because you've learnt something new, something that changes the way you now think about the world.  Whether this is about a country, a culture, or simply the most well known Prime Minster to lead England.

Liking a Film vs Enjoying a Film

So this week I went to go see Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (I'm just going to refer to it as Three Billboards from now on), and I came away from it with the familiar feeling that watching Dunkirk gave me.  Now don't get me wrong, both of these films are very good, excellent in fact.  They're thought provoking and very clever in their own ways but I'm not sure I'd ever feel the need to watch them again.

Some People Have Money For The Cinema, I Have A Blu-Ray Shelf!

It is commonly known that some people can feel the pinch of Christmas upon their wallets during January.  The pinch of the festive spirit stealing of your money that is!  Not wanting to stand out from the crowd, I too was visited by the festive spirit.  Seeing as going out was a no-go, it was with due haste that I got round to watching the limited edition version of Serenity that I purchased months ago.
