Review: Spider-Man – No Way Home

A convergence of storylines, film studios, and forgotten screenplays, shouldn’t be this good. Peter Parker’s identity has been revealed to the world, and spins his life around.

Review: 1917

A hauntingly beautiful, if gruelling ordeal. Sam Mendes’ film is incredible. During the events of The Great War, two young soldiers are given a task: one day to travel across enemy occupied territory to deliver new orders to two battalions. If they fail, sixteen hundred men will be killed. Time is the enemy. Director Sam…

Review: The Imitation Game

A compelling piece of history and a story worth telling, Cumberbatch is excellent but I felt the experience was let down by a very “convenient” screenplay. Based off the book “Alan Turing: The Enigma” based off the true story of the¬†mathematician¬†who broke the infamous Nazi cypher machine known as The Enigma Machine in World War…

Review: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

Having finally gotten around to seeing this film, I can enjoy some of the best acting talent Britain has to offer. That, and feel a little bewildered.
