FILM REVIEW:: AMERICAN SON

I stumbled across American Son under the ‘trending now’ banner on Netflix, and something made me stop to watch the trailer, when usually I just keep scrolling through. Kerry Washington’s character together with a police officer and her husband are in a room going back and forth about her son and his whereabouts. It’s also evident that this is a race related issue. Washington’s performance alone made me stop and

One Episode In… Chernobyl

I’m one episode in Chernobyl, and I feel like this is going to be a slow burner. Considering I fancy myself a bit of a history buff, and certainly very interested in impactful world events, the disaster in Chernobyl was always one I found fascinating and even a considered must see destination in the future (yes, I know the risks). I’ve never once thought about looking out for movies or

One Episode In… Atypical

I’m one episode in Atypical, and I’m not completely won over, but I have a feeling that this is going to grow on me. Atypical is the story of Sam (Keir Gilchrist), an autistic young man who has an obsession with the Antarctic and is specifically fascinated by penguins. Episode one, and I assume the rest are the same, goes back and forth between Sam’s appointments with his therapist Julia

My 2019

There was a meme that went around toward the end of this year stating something along the lines of “the year is almost over, and I just want to say, what the fuck was that?!” I identify with this meme completely and whole-heartedly. I honestly thought this was going to be a banger of a year. But, the voices started… again. I watch a lot of those true crime documentaries

FILM REVIEW:: ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD

Here it is. Quentin Tarantino’s 9th and second last film, and old Hollywood is well and truly alive once again, in this star studded piece of work put together by the quirky and unique director and writer. Never expect anything less when it comes to Tarantino. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is likable, but not completely lovable. Hollywood, as it has been known simply as, is based on a

FILM REVIEW:: ALADDIN (2019)

I had very, very, low level, miniature, expectations going into Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin. I mean, the reviews hadn’t been all that great. I, as always, kept my mind opened and welcoming. And, thankfully I did. I have no idea what any of these critics are talking about. I thought it was fantastic. However, there’s a fault or two that allows this live-action remake to lose a point. Aladdin

One Episode In… Mindhunter

I’m one episode in of Mindhunter and I’m just going to use a cliché and say, I’m hooked. Yes, I am one of those white girls from the memes about being excited about new serial killer stuff on Netflix. Mindhunter has literally been on my Netflix list for a good year and I’m so stupid to have waited this long to watch it. I blame all those documentaries that keep

One Episode In… You

I’m one episode in of You, and not going to lie, this creep, Joe (Penn Badgley) has got me very intrigued. I also want to point out the fact that I totally see and agree with the humour that the title of this show comes with, when you add it to sexual innuendos such as, ‘One Episode In…’, but beside the point… The buzz was electrifying for this new Netflix

FILM REVIEW:: THE LION KING (2019)

Long live the king. The highly anticipated live-action remake of the 1994 Disney classic, is finally here, and it is amazing. It was everything this self-confessed Lion King fan could have hoped for. Big spectacle, authentic and honourable. Let me start by saying… Do not listen to the bad reviews by critics who have lost the little boy/girl inside of them. This is a fantastic version of the film and

FILM REVIEW:: CAPTAIN MARVEL

I have no idea what the critics are saying. I really don’t. I didn’t read one review going into Captain Marvel because, regardless I was watching it. However, I had heard that it was coping some flack. But here I am, making sure I don’t fall off the course. Honestly, I don’t know why it would have gotten a bad review. I liked it! Firstly, shout out to the guys
