Films I Watched This Week: RRR, Morbius, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, & More!

It's the Easter Holidays, and therefore, there's a rush of movie releases as companies try to capitalise on people (kids, especially) having time off. So, I've got three new releases to talk about, including the huge Indian hit RRR. There's also a couple of older (no pun intended) films for me to talk about, too! … Continue reading Films I Watched This Week: RRR, Morbius, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, & More!

Films I Watched This Week: Master Cheng, The Adam Project, Miss Americana

So, I'm attempting to actually make these weekly wrap-ups of films I watch into a regular thing! This week there haven't been as many high-profile releases - I'm actually really sad that Disney pulled Turning Red from a theatrical release, as I was really excited for it, but I do not have Disney Plus (I … Continue reading Films I Watched This Week: Master Cheng, The Adam Project, Miss Americana

Films I Watched This Week: Uncharted, Resident Evil, Gemini Man

Following on from my post recently about Letterboxd and how it's a handy motivator for writing quick reviews on films (shorter even than my Film in 500 posts), I found that it was the ideal method of productive procrastination during the last week! Therefore, I've written reviews for the three films I've seen over that … Continue reading Films I Watched This Week: Uncharted, Resident Evil, Gemini Man

Blog Update: Hey, Have You Heard of Letterboxd?

Hey everyone, hope you're doing well! Somehow it's February 2022, how'd that happen, huh? If you've followed this site much, you may have realised I like films a lot, and tend to enjoy talking about them analytically, too.
