Spider-Man: Homecoming | A Colourful Character Driven Film


Director: Jon Watts

Starring: Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr, Michael Keaton, Jacob Batalon

Running time: 133 minutes

Certification: 12A



“If you’re nothing without the suit, then you shouldn’t have it.”


When I first heard that there was going to be another Spider-Man reboot I was very hesitant – the Spidey track record hasn’t been too good – “But” I told myself “Marvel is taking the reigns so it has to be better!”. Then when I heard that this Spider-Man would focus on the nerdy Peter Parker trying to juggle being an unpopular high-school student as well as a “friendly neighbour-hood Spider-Man”, I was both excited and apprehensive. Getting that structural balance right would be difficult but Marvel have done it before; the Guardians of the Galaxy films especially worked well in the mixture of superheroes and comedy. After Homecoming was released and the positive reviews came in I was just very excited to see it, and it did not disappoint…much.

Spoiler Free Baby Driver Review



Back again with another film review for you today, this time it’s all about Edgar Wright’s new film Baby Driver! (I bet you didn’t guess that from the title!)
Although I frustratingly couldn’t see this film on the day it was released I was lucky enough to have a couple of days to let the hype start to settle around this film and fortunately it managed not only to meet this exceptionally high level, but exceeded it. So as soon as I got home from the cinema I sat down with my notebook, splurged all my thoughts down, did a quick little bit of research and recorded this video. I wanted it all to be fresh in my mind – I definitely think the buzz of it still shines through despite having to re-record it because I deleted all of my audio!

However I have reflected a bit more on the film and I have to admit that there was one thing that I had a bit of an issue with and that’s the fact that I wish the film had been a little less male-dominated.

“Who is you?”

*A quick preface: this is just going to be a fairly brief review as, rightly so, this film has been everywhere and there are much better reviews to read such as this one by Empire or this one by the New York Times.

I don’t really know where to start in this review because it is such a delicate, moving, and unique film that has caused so many new and exciting conversations – even if some were caused by that Oscars blunder! In fact the reason I decided that I would post a review on the film, despite there already being so many, was because of a conversation about it that I had with my friend in which she said: “I’m not sure if I’ll go see it, it’s kind of intimidating”.

Reviewing Beauty and the Beast



I’ve wanted to do some film reviews on my blog for a while now and, as a massive Disney fan, I thought starting with Bill Condon’s live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast would be a lovely place to start. But please do excuse my rambling – I still don’t know what I’m doing!

The Original Beauty and the Beast has always been one of my favourite Disney Classics; not only do I adore the music, French setting, and beastly romance but also I have always seen part of myself in Belle. Continue reading
