Throwback Thursday: Prisoners

A lot of my friends have been urging me to watch Denis Villeneuve's first English-language film, Prisoners. I'm a big fan of his work, and I firmly believe he's one of the best filmmakers in the world at the moment, so this, coupled with all the hype my friends made about it, meant that I went … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Prisoners

Throwback Thursday: Avengers: Infinity War

This review will be packed with spoilers, but if you haven't seen Infinity War yet, you probably don't give a damn anyway.  Endgame is nearly here, and it wouldn't feel right to review that without first looking back at the first instalment of this two-part story. Infinity War was a cinematic event, it made a ridiculous amount of money … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Avengers: Infinity War

Throwback Thursday: Split

Following on from my Unbreakable review, it's time to look at the second instalment of this trilogy, Split. I watched this film for the very first time over the weekend! Spoilers follow. Split follows three teenagers who are kidnapped and imprisoned by Kevin Wendell Crumb, (James McAvoy) a man who suffers from dissociative identity disorder, which means he has … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Split

Throwback Thursday: Unbreakable

In anticipation for Glass, I will be looking back at Unbreakable and Split. I can't remember Unbreakable much at all, having seen it years ago and I wasn't really paying too much attention, and I've never seen Split, so I'm looking forward to that! But, without further ado, let's go back 19 years to the film that began this unlikely trilogy. … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Unbreakable

Throwback Thursday: The Festival

Today we're having a quick look at last year's The Festival. Coming from the minds from the creators of The Inbetweeners, you probably know what to expect. This is crude British comedy to a tee, packed with Inbetweeners-esque humour, this film relies on the shock value and comedy rather than a plot. Usually, this would be unforgivable, … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: The Festival

Throwback Thursday: The Happytime Murders

Today, we're going to be looking back at 2018's The Happytime Murders, a black comedy directed by Brian Henson, the son of Jim Henson, creator of The Muppets. Starring Melissa McCarthy as Detective Connie Edwards, this R-rated movie takes place in a world where humans and puppets co-exist (although puppets are treated as second-class citizens) and follows … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: The Happytime Murders

Throwback Thursday: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

The next installment of the Fantastic Beasts franchise arrives in cinemas tomorrow, so I thought I'd go back and watch its predecessor in anticipation. I wouldn't call myself a huge fan of the Harry Potter world, as I can't compete with the raw passion of their loyalists. But, I've read all the books, I've seen all the … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Throwback Thursday: Bridge of Spies

Welcome to my Throwback Thursday feature. This will happen every other Thursday, and it is a fairly simple concept, where I will be reviewing something that has already been and gone. There isn't any theme when it comes to these reviews, apart from that they will be released on a Thursday, so if anyone ever … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Bridge of Spies
