One of my more anticipated films of the month surprisingly, Victoria & Abdul looked to contain a charming little tale that few had previously been aware of. Only within the last few years have the details of it even been discovered. And with Judi Dench reprising her role from Mrs Brown (not this Mrs Brown…) making this a bizarre sequel…

How bizarre! You wait around for a murder mystery film to hit cinemas and then two come along at once. After seeing the sinister The Limehouse Golem, I was definitely in the mood for another though. It turns out that this film, Wind River, is so much more however. Much much more. Watch a trailer for…

Amidst the unusual big releases of this September, such as the brand new It, there are a few quite pieces coming out which I have been looking forward to some time.

Obviously, the…

On Friday, I happened to do a double-bill of films- two stories based on real life as it turns out. The first is the American Made Review which I wrote for Fresh Friday. The second was the new Kathryn Bigelow film Detroit about the riots that took place in 1967 in that city over increasing racial tension. Which true story…

I had been looking forward to The Dark Tower for some time now. Just a few months ago, there had been no trailers released for the film and, overall, there was fairly minimal marketing. However, the first trailer came out and had me thoroughly intrigued. But then early critic reactions came out and tempered my expectations. Since…
