Captain America: Civil War in Bullet Points

Please don’t read this and expect that it will be a well thought out and well-reasoned review. It definitely won’t be. Also it will be full of spoilers, you’ve been warned.

Movie Review: Catching Fire

Yesterday my friends and I went to see Catching Fire at an IMAX theatre and I loved it. As someone who has read all the books and loved them, as well as really enjoyed the first instalment in the Hunger Games film series, I had high expectations. Pretty much all of them were met and exceeded, and I think this is…

Movie Review: Les Miserables

I went in to see Les Miserables as a complete novice, which I’m sure affected my appreciation of the film. I knew it was based on the novel by Victor Hugo, that it is and has been for a long time, a musical, and that it includes songs such as ‘I Dreamed a Dream’, ‘On My Own’…

Movie Review: Struck By Lightning

I’ve always enjoyed movies, and for the better part of the last few years I’ve been obsessively keeping up with new releases. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to as much recently due to new adjustments in real life. However, the downside to watching a lot of movies is that it’s easy to grow tired of the same story…

Movie Review: Pitch Perfect

My New Year’s resolution this year is to update my blog more frequently, so what better way to start than to write about the movie I actually watched on New Year’s Eve? I watched Pitch Perfect the other day and it was aca-dorable.

Movie ‘Review’: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

As some of you may have read in my review of the novel, I didn’t love the story. I thought it had great moments that I didn’t necessarily feel meshed together all that well. It tried to do too much, and I never managed to connect like I think I was supposed to with Charlie.

Movie Review: The Hunger Games

As you may or may not know, I have been looking forward to the premiere of the Hunger Games for a long time now, and I was extremely excited when I got to see it last Thursday night. I should say right now that this review will be mostly me gushing about how much I loved the…

Movie Review: Never Let Me Go

Since I just finished writing my thoughts on the book, I think I will continue now by giving my thoughts on the movie adaptation. In many ways it was a very good movie, but it did not live up to my expectations.

Movie Review: Like Crazy

When you sit down to watch Like Crazy it becomes clear very fast that this is not a typical Hollywood blockbuster. It’s not the stereotypical, trope filled Hollywood love story where everything is resolved by the end of the movie and they go on to live happily ever after. Instead it is a stylistically and narratively unique movie about…

Movie Review: One Day

I just finished watching One Day, and while it had its moments it did not live up to my expectations. I am approximately halfway through reading the novel that it is based on (and intend to finish the book later), but even with just having read half the story (and knowing how it ends) it’s hard to…

Movie Review: Crazy Stupid Love

I decided to watch this movie because it had a great cast and because the trailer showed great potential, and when I finished watching it I was really glad I did, because Crazy Stupid Love is a really good romantic comedy. It has everything a good rom-com should have; humour, love, emotion and good chemistry between…
