THE 20 BEST FILMS OF 2019

We’re finally at the end of 2019, and what a year for cinema it has been. I just managed to beat last year’s total, with sixty six new releases seen this year. As always many of these are UK release dates – if you find that frustrating, imagine how frustrating it is waiting all those […]

PARASITE

This is a film on everyone’s lips, and thanks to an early preview screening (god bless living in London) I have been able to see it two months before it hits UK cinemas. And my goodness, I cannot stress how grateful I am to have been able to see it this year and add it […]

JOJO RABBIT

I don’t think anybody was expecting Taika Waititi to follow on from the success of Thor: Ragnorok with a comedy about a Hitler fanatic in 1940s Germany, but Jojo Rabbit is here and it is truly a masterpiece.

GROUNDHOG DAY

It’s crunch time for 2019, and I do fully intend to catch up on fivethreeninety before the year is out. I’m working on a backlog of posts for my films I should have seen, and the entry for November 24th is Groundhog Day. Directed by Harold Ramis, and written by Ramis and Danny Rubin, Groundhog […]

NAPOLEON DYNAMITE

I’m back, and I’m catching up on my films I should have seen series (even though I haven’t been posting about them, I have stayed committed to watching a somehow missed film every week). My entry for November 17th was Napoleon Dynamite. Napoleon Dynamite is a off-beat comedy about a quirky high schooler who helps […]
