Hi, I’m a freelance journalist based around Portsmouth, the UK’s only island city….(more)
Ghost in the Shell is a good-looking actioner that doesn’t get too philosophical..
My take on the hottest movie of the moment – Beauty and the Beast..
I read the memoir Lion: A Long Way Home, which is now a movie starring Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman. I felt a great kinship with Saroo Brierley, the young boy who could have perished on the streets of Kolkata but got an extraordinary chance at a better life…
SS-GB is the new BBC adaptation starring Sam Riley and Kate Bosworth. It hasn’t been given a fair shot by the public!
Mini movie reviews: I’m a recluse and I stay home and watch the latest releases on digital and DVD….
Sunshine Blogger Award #2 How do you get to Middle Earth?
Manchester by the Sea How did Kyle Chandler and Gretchen Mol come up with that kid?
**Jackie: Natalie Portman goes for the gold again, and unintentionally blesses us all with one of the maddest performances of the year.
**Royal Drama for 2017: King Charles III causes a political ruckus. Plus The Crown 2 & Victoria on PBS…
**La La Land review: It’s a nice film. Stop losing your minds, critics.
**The Year Ahead in movies. Some people are looking forward to Episode VIII.
Happy New Year!! I was very busy at the end of last year as I took the NCTJ Reporting exam. The good news is that I passed!
**I’ve updated the About section again as I try to make my blog more interesting.
**It’s been a crazy November, but I had a nice time at Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
I think my appreciation comes down to the following:
- No Daniel Radcliffe
- I don’t already know the plot
- Colin Farrell is darkly commanding in the role of Percival Graves….
**I got nominated for A Sunshine Blogger award and will get my response up soon!
**Who is Jude Law’s Young Pope on HBO/Sky Atlanctic? My guide.
**I didn’t chicken out of Halloween! Check out my personal little ode to scary movies!
**I got up my totally awesome review for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children! And I just noticed that Finlay Macmillan, who plays Enoch, looks like a dark-haired Justin Bieber. Enoch’s the kid with anger issues and the ability to re-animate the dead. That would totally be Bieber’s power!
**I can’t stand Natalie Portman‘s voice in the Jackie trailer…Yes I know that the real Jackie had a bizarre voice like that but accuracy is not the same as authenticity.
**I finally added some text to the ‘About‘ section!
**I covered the news about Amazon’s forthcoming Strange New Things adaptation. Not to be confused with Netflix’s amazing hit Stranger Things, it is a very ambitious UK project starring Richard Madden.
**Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt to star in Passengers @ 4YE.com
**From my blog: is Miss Peregrine a great role for the wonderful Eva Green?
**I wrote a short Queen of Katwe preview on 4YE: This movie tells the true story of a young girl from a Ugandan slum who has an incredible mind for chess. Clearly positioned as an inspirational heartwarmer, it will benefit from Lupita Nyong’o’s star power.
**My piece on Jenna Coleman‘s Queen Victoria: can it tell us anything about the monarchy today?
**I review Harry Potter and the Cursed Child script: I can’t believe Rowling is happy with the latest Potter installment
**My SUICIDE SQUAD review on BCactionMR: critics had so much fun bashing Squad. I think they liked it more than they let on.
