Quickfire Film Review | Happy Death Day, Ant-Man, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, A Wrinkle in Time

Quickfire film reviews, well it’s in the title, isn’t it?
I’m speedily reviewing old releases, re-watches, and films I didn’t particularly enjoy.

Plane edition! All of my reviews here were written on my flight to New Zealand, so some are a little weirder than usual!

Happy Death Day (dir. Christopher B. Landon)
⭐⭐⭐⭐
Starring: Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine

Happy Death Day may perhaps be my new favourite horror/slasher/thriller film! It doesn’t take itself seriously and the light tone and moments of humour only heighten the suspense as the day draws to a close and the murderer looms! The range of this film and the well-paced storyline that rarely feels too Continue reading

Quickfire Film Reviews | Bill, The Disaster Artist, About Time

Quickfire film reviews, well it’s in the title, isn’t it?
I’m speedily reviewing old releases, re-watches, and films I didn’t particularly enjoy.

Bill (dir. Richard Bracewell)
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Starring: Matthew Baynton, Martha Howe-Douglas, Jim Howick 

What’s in a name?
Well, from the name of this film alone you know not to go into this film expecting any sort of historical accuracy – a surprise from the Horrible Histories gang, but works all the more in their favour. Following the ‘real’ story of William ‘Bill’ Shakespeare’s journey to the London Stage, we see the dramatist getting kicked out of ‘Mortal Coil’ for his spotlight-stealing lute playing, working to promote the ‘Two a Week” vegetable campaign dressed dashingly as a tomato alongside the cucumber Christopher Marlowe, and helping to put a stop to the deviously disguised King Phillip II of Spain from carrying out a Catholic Plot to kill the Queen. Ridiculous in all the right ways.
With a satirical Monty Python feel, ‘Bill’ is a silly laugh-out-loud film brought to life by the wonderfully familiar cast, headed by Continue reading
