The Babadook (2014)

Initially, the film seems to be a tired single mother Amelia (Essie Davis) and her hyperactive son (Noah Wiseman) and all the situations that follow with repeated actions cause problems at school and disrupt interactions with potential playmates. The dark and emotional past which highlights Sam’s father and his absence points to many reasons why the…

Split (2017)

Viewers can say they are “truly moved” by emotive films with depth and meaning that not only entertain but educate. This would sound a bit like something you would attach to a Rom-com or a documentary style viewing, but I am going to apply it to Split. I didn’t do any research into DID  (Dissociative Identity Disorder)…

Suicide Squad (2016)

  Well well, This is another film I held off seeing near release date so I could let the hype die down a little. The air was thick of negativity for the film and I like to be as unbiased as possible. The line-up of the characters in the first section of the film seemed…

Ghostbusters (2016)

  I watched the 1984 classic as a child (scared me shitless!) giggling at how scatty they were but how they always used to pull it together and save the city, and now they’ve done it again.I was primed to love this film ever since there was a whisper about the possibility two years ago. When…

Demolition (2016)

 Jake Gyllenhaal has always been a favored actor of mine. Not only as he is easy on the eyes (swoon) but also as his style of acting has always been passionate and deep on depicting many a difficult situation when featured cinematically and on this such occasion he came in like a wrecking ball…ahem. From…

Amadeus (1984)

A bit of an odd film from my repertoire of viewing you may think, and of course it is true, however, it only shows how eclectic and varied my viewing tastes are… This was another film I stumbled upon on  Netflix a few years ago (after it converted from LoveFilm) and it popped up in…

How to train Your Dragon

Now, originally I thought this film was just another one of those Dreamworks children’s movies my 4-year-old nephew raves on about which is brilliant and riveting for kids but is lacking for adults…Okay, I was wrong. Initially I was a bit confused about the title when the opening scene began in a village of Norse folk…

Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

Now, this has been one of the most recently slated action movies of this year, and yet I found it rather good! Now don’t look at me like that, you just have to think of it as a completely separate film from the Dark Knight at the previous films in that series. Now another reason…

 Zootropolis

Even though I had to brave the half-term traffic of parents and their offspring, I had wanted to see this ever since the teaser trailer emerged, and with such promises as being produced by the same team that created Frozen (try not to sing the song) and Big Hero 6 (on a scale of 1-10…

10 Cloverfield Lane( 2016): Interesting, suspenseful yet dark.

Director Dan Tratchtenberg teases the audience with this dark, suspenseful and deep semi-sequel using virtually no narration or initial backstory leaving the audience with no choice but to have as much information as the leading character. She wakes up in a bunker with two men with one claiming he saved her from a car crash…

The Witch (2015) Eerie,Dark and Unnerving

Now, When I first viewed the trailer for “The Witch” (2016) by debut director Robert Eggers, I was firstly intrigued and secondly felt uneasy about the film’s plot. As a woman who works with children as a day job, to understand that the underlying theme is child abduction/murder/witchcraft and general non-positive topic made me feel…
