Finally Watched: Big (1988)

And I’m three months older than you are, ASSHOLE! Big was one of those movies that I was sure I had watched, but actually never did because I was constantly getting it confused with Robin William’s Jack and Fred Savage’ s Vice Versa –¬†and I’m sure I’ve only seen one of those anyway. Frustrated by…

Netflix Review: Party of Five

If you follow me on Twitter (@JustJen_02) then you would have seen me tweet earlier this month:¬†Party of Five on @NetflixUK feels so surreal. The whole 4:3 thing is annoying but I’m loving the nostalgia nonetheless. When I saw Party of Five on Netflix I was instantly transported to my childhood home where I would…

Finally Watched: Boyhood (2014)

You don’t want the bumpers, life doesn’t give you bumpers. Boyhood – the coming of age movie that starred Ethan Hawke, took 12 years to make (using the same actors), and was spoofed and referenced up and down Hollywood almost as soon as it was released. That was the extent of my foreknowledge before I…

Film Review: Power Rangers

The Breakfast Club power-up and do a little more than dance on tables and run around empty hallways. They’re just as misunderstood but now they’ve got a different means to channel all that teenage angst – and it may or may not involve giant robot dinosaurs. A remake of Haim Saban’s television series, Mighty Morphin…

Film Review: Get Out

A man is nervous about meeting his girlfriends parents for the first time. They’ve been dating for five months and it’s nothing out of the ordinary – though his biggest concern is that she hasn’t told them that he’s black. But hey – this is 2017, that should hardly be a cause for concern… Right?…

Film Review: Beauty and the Beast (2017)

It’s a tale as old as time. Some may even go as far as to say; it’s a song as old as rhyme… so we pretty much know what’s going to happen down to a formulaic T. Whether you’re a fan of the 1991 original animated version, Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgen’s 2011 Beastly, or…

Finally Watched… Dallas Buyers Club

I got one… one life, right? Mine. But I want someone else’s sometimes. To be honest I have no clue why I didn’t go and see this when it came out in 2013. Though I want to blame a limited release and a short viewing window because I definitely remember gearing up to see it…

TV Review: Delicious

A quick shout out to this delectable series staring Dawn French, Iain Glen and Emilia Fox who are stuck in a toxic love triangle with a dysfunctionally shared family to show for it. When the patriarch dies unexpectedly, the widowed women are exposed to just how deep the lies he told them went, and who…

Film Review: La La Land

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling pretend to know what it’s like to be struggling artists in Hollywood. A quintessential actress and hipster musician come together and tick all the right boxes in this Romance movie that may or may not be on some pretty heavy drugs. Opening with a whimsically unexpected ensemble number that had…
