Sian

Sian's love for movies spawned from having a tight mother whose generosity stretched only to hiring movies once a week for entertainment. As a pre-teen Sian spent more pocket money then she earned on cinema tickets and thus sought a job at the cinema. Over the next decade she rose to be one of the greats in her backwater, six-screen cinema complex, zooming through the ranks from candy bar wench with upselling superpowers, to pasty projectionist, to a manager rocking a pencil skirt. Sian went on to study Journalism at university though feels her popcorn shovelling days were far more educational

Christopher Robin Review

Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart” just one of the many wise quotes from everyone’s favourite bear-of-little-brain, Winnie the Pooh. His latest film, CHRISTOPHER ROBIN, does just that: Fill your heart. What HOOK did for young-at-heart grown ups in 1991, CHRISTOPHER ROBIN is doing for adults of 2018. The flick offers a nostalgic and fantastical cinematic outing that ...

Early Man Review

In the current day of snappy computer programs whipping out sophisticated effects in a flash, it’s endearing to see studios such as Aardman stubbornly persevering with stop frame animation. With each animator labouring all day to complete a mere 3 to 4 seconds of footage by knock-off time, I can’t help but take my hat off to them…even if the finished product is a little underwhelming. Set at the d...

The Post Review

Oh, how very different the worlds news was prior to the internet! Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks team up again  – that’s five times now – to bring us political drama THE POST…oh yeah, did I mention it also stars Meryl Streep? Talk about a power house trio! When documents revealing a Government cover up that spanned four U.S Presidents fall in to the hands of the press, the ...

Pitch Perfect 3 Review

Omne trium perfectum. Loosely translated: Good things come in threes. Um, well, “aca-scuse me” but I may have evidence to suggest otherwise. Cashing in on the box office success of the first two flicks, PITCH PERFECT 3 revisits the beloved Bellas post-college as they struggle to make a mark on the real world. After the heights of winning the World Acapella Championships, they’ve ...

The Greatest Showman Review

This time last year, LA LA LAND took the world by storm. Despite its niche jazz undertones, it enjoyed wide critical and box office success, suggesting live-action original musicals (that aren’t aimed at children) may still have a market. 2017’s holiday musical offering, THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, isn’t quite as bold or adventurous, but it’s still an admirable addition to the mo...

Darkest Hour Review

DARKEST HOUR: A movie that is essentially about a speech. Britain has done it before – to great success – with THE KING’S SPEECH (2010). Have they done it again? Unlike THE KING’S SPEECH, which featured the all-too-easy-to-feel-sorry-for King George VI, our hero in DARKEST HOUR is the less likeable Winston Churchill. Set during the early days of World War II, Britain faces ...

The Meyerowitz Stories

Netflix continues to up its film distribution sector, with another original release to add to the growing pile. This time it’s American comedy-drama THE MEYEROWITZ STORIES (NEW AND SELECTED). Receiving a reported four-minute standing ovation at Cannes Film Festival, and with such a stellar cast, it’s surprising to see this flick picked up by Netflix as opposed to a cinema distributor. With a...
