Zack Snyder’s Justice League: Tragedy and Triumph

30 April 2021

In November of 2017, Warner Bros. Released Justice League in theatres across the world. It was critically maligned, likely due to a tragic and reportedly tumultuous production. The box office take was mediocre and the fans were angry. On March 18th, 2021, the director’s cut of the film, entitled Zack Synder’s Justice League, was released […]

Rom-Com Recommendations

29 April 2021

I’ve always loved rom-coms and I’m too embarrassed to admit just how many of them I’ve seen. They’re funny, light-hearted and they don’t take themselves too seriously much like myself. And to be honest if I were to be trapped in a rom-com like Isn’t it Romantic you wouldn’t find me complaining! Far from it. All that singing and those silly romantic conundrums sound like a blast! So, I’ve narrowed down the list of rom-coms to my top four so […]

Your Favourite Rom-Com – Outdated & Unattainable, or Harmless Fun?

14 February 2021

Love them or loathe them, romantic comedies remain one of the most popular movie genres of the 21st century. The same love-struck, hopeless romantics appear on screen time and time again. The plots follow the same tried and tested formula and are for the most part light-hearted and often based on a preposterous premise. You […]

Films by Black Female Directors that I’ve Loved this Holiday

21 January 2021

Film is pitiful when it comes to representing the work of black women. People from this multifaceted minority group directed less than 1% of the top 1,300 movies from 2007 to 2019 according to a study by USC Annenberg, compared to the 82.5% of directing roles in this selection filled by white men. In the […]

What to Watch: Rebecca

17 December 2020

Okay, confession time – I haven’t seen the Hitchcock adaptation of Rebecca. Worse still, I haven’t even read Daphne de Maurier’s original (and much beloved) source novel. I know, it’s shameful.
