I defend this movie against total straight washing. Also I’m not listing the articles or tweets or anything else I’ve read about this movie because I already will probably write this more dramatically than I intend to and don’t proclaim that I disagree with these people’s interpretations. It’s just that what I’ve written here is … Continue reading BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY: I AM CONFUSED?
And I am the audience ‘looking for entertainment.’ I was thoroughly pleased with this movie. It was very entertaining. I like Queen’s music. Obviously, who doesn’t? But I am by no means a hardcore fan of the band and know very little about their lives and their band’s story. So the whole thing was quite … Continue reading BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY: IT DEFINITELY TRIES TO APPEAL TO MULTIPLE AUDIENCES

The … Continue reading THE 2 THINGS I AM ALWAYS WATCHING
We were the only ones in the cinema. Until half way through the ads when three about 15 year olds walked in. The two females and one male kind of just chilled at the back, and about a quarter of the way through the movie turned on their phones and one of them their phone … Continue reading FIRST MAN: AIM FOR THE MOON
I saw this and didn’t like it that much? In saying that though, I do have Why Did You Do That?, Shallow and Always Remember Us This Way saved and downloaded on Spotify.

Watching anything refugee related will always be hard. Honestly, I don’t really have much to say about 4.1 Miles… It’s just so real, and very raw… This short film follows the commander of the small Greek island Lesbos’ Coast Guard ship that is charged with saving the lives of thousands of refugees. And it’s hard … Continue reading 4.1 MILES: IT WOULD HAVE BEEN EASIER TO RIP OUT MY HEART
