A Series of Unfortunate Events: Season One Episodes Ranked

If you are interested in reviews with a optimistic outlook, I regret to inform you this is not one. Not only is the reviewer extremely sarcastic, but is bitter and cynical beyond belief. There is no positive ending, no positive beginning and very few positive comments in the middle. The Bad Beginning Part One: TheContinue reading “A Series of Unfortunate Events: Season One Episodes Ranked”

Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman: This Oscars, payback looks promising Emerald Fennel’s revenge thriller is the first female directed debut to be nominated for best director at the Oscars. It is recognized, as some critics, as a bold step in the right direction for #Metoo movie portrayals. However, many controversies have occurred as to whether or notContinue reading “Promising Young Woman”

The ‘Saw’ Movies Ranked

“I want to play a game” Like them or not, you can’t deny the huge impact on horror the ‘Saw’ franchise has made. What was meant to be a short film with only one scene, became a franchise that has been going on for seventeen years ( Sixteen too long, quite frankly). But with a villianContinue reading “The ‘Saw’ Movies Ranked”

13 Going on 30

13 Going on 30: A young head on old shoulders 16 years after ‘Big’ was released, Gary Winick copied the idea but switched Tom Hanks out for Jennifer Garner and threw Mark Ruffalo into the mix to appeal to the female audience.

Although, ‘Big’ does not feature a teenage girl slumber party or a magic pink dollhouse, it is (almost) always considered the best of the bunch. I’ll beContinue reading “Big”

The Princess Bride

The Princess Bride: A Royal Pain I can positively and unreservedly say that unlike the vast majority of cinema critics, I did not enjoy watching ‘The Princess Bride’. Although many of you will find this information “inconceivable”, I refused to be swayed that a few quotable lines and a couple of quips about castles andContinue reading “The Princess Bride”

Donnie Darko

Donnie Darko: Caught like a rabbit in the flightpath In 2001, the world was introduced to ‘Donnie Darko’ for the very first time. 20 years, people still aren’t sure what it’s about. Jake Gyllenhaal and Seth Rogen, who starred in it, still have no clue what actually happened. Despite its perplexing plot, it has receivedContinue reading “Donnie Darko”

Little Miss Sunshine

Little Miss Sunshine: A sentimental guilt trip In the midst of a snowstorm and a global pandemic, I felt it was an appropriate time to watch ‘Little Miss Sunshine’. A movie about a family’s journey across the country to compete in a beauty pageant. Let’s meet them, shall we? What’s it about? A family strugglingContinue reading “Little Miss Sunshine”
