FILM REVIEW:: THE DEVIL ALL THE TIME

I wasn’t in the mood for a movie when I clicked on The Devil All The Time. Especially one based on the religious folks of the West Virginian 50s. But I was on a bit of a Sebastian Stan craze (don’t ask me why). If I hadn’t IMDb’ed, I could not tell you organically what the movie was about. But here’s what I got: The Devil All The Time is

Tired Mum Vs Tired Single Woman

I went out for breakfast with a friend not long ago, and she spoke about being exhausted. She’s single, late 20s, no kids, and works a very physically demanding job in the medical/health industry. She’s definitely not a party animal, so most of her weekends aren’t exactly spent stumbling into her home at 4am. During this catch up she mentioned how tired she’s been feeling. She stopped herself in her

One Episode In… Falcon and the Winter Soldier

I am one episode in Falcon and the Winter Soldier and it brings me so much joy that these people can continuously make such entertaining and fascinating stuff that isn’t just all fight scenes and average dialogue, that there is actually a lot of substance behind every part of these features. It doesn’t take long for the action to kick in, however. Falcon and the Winter Soldier starts off with

One Episode In… Bridgeton

I am one episode in Bridgerton and it’s a bit ‘meh’, guys. Nothing to go crazy over. The last few minutes get the story to the point but the lead up, well, it sort of sucked. To be frankly honest, I felt confused the entire time. Other than the historical inaccuracies (I’ll have to double check that actually but it seems about right) and the modern music in classical form

FILM REVIEW:: SOUL

If you need some encouragement to live every moment, and make the most of your time here on Earth, watch Soul. This is one of those unique concepts I, personally have never come across, in film. It’s the type of film that, because of its idea, you get into a trance and you probably don’t blink whilst you watch it. This clever little Pixar film follows Joe (Jamie Foxx), a

One Episode In… WandaVision

I am one episode in of WandaVision and wow! What a complete trip out. I have a feeling that Marvel’s new line of mini series’ are going to be an enormous hit, and WandaVison is a great start. If I am saying this after only one episode, then this whole new world must be worth investing every possible, baby-free moment I can get. It’s all about those last moments on

One Episode In… Narcos

I’m one episode in of Narcos and this smooth and slick pilot has easily made me keen to continue this binge journey. With 10 episodes in each of the three season, if they are all as interesting as this first episode, I should smash this out in a couple a days. And yes, that’s with a newborn. They do sleep a lot at the start, they say. Narcos takes place

FILM REVIEW:: MULAN (2020)

It was the highly anticipated Disney live action remake everyone was so eager to get their eyes on. Unfortunately, COVID-19 kept pushing the release date, until Disney finally decided to pop it onto trusty Disney+ for a few dollaradoos. That was until it would be put up for free in December. Basically, what I’m trying to say is, considering the shocking year 2020 was, and the standard of this film,

FILM REVIEW:: THE OLD GUARD

Netflix has definitely been a good friend during lockdown/maternity leave. It’s constantly bringing something out to help with the boredom. The Old Guard was one of those flicks to help consume some time, and it was impressive by just its trailer – so, on it went. The Old Guard centres around a group of people with one thing in common: Immortality. They have lived during some of the most eventful

FILM REVIEW:: FATAL AFFAIR

Just sitting here, shaking my head, thinking, what a waste of an hour and a half of my life. Where do you even begin to pick where it’s so bad? It’s just all one big pile of, well, I’ll say it, shit! Is it the plot, the storyline, the acting? It’s not a theme we haven’t seen before, but this version, didn’t need to be made. Fatal Affair is the
