DVD Review: Christopher Robin

This charmingly sweet story captures the spirit of the original stories  while adding a message that audiences today can relate to.  When you are a child your teddy bears and toys were some of your first companions – but what happens when you grow up and forget about them? This is the premise of Marc Foster’s charming and heartfelt film that brings to life A.A.Milne and E.H.Shepard’s characters to life perfectly for a contemporary… Read More

2019 is certainly off to a flying start in terms of film releases with  these five very different stories… The Favourite: even from just watching this trailer, this new film from Yorgos Lanthimos seems a lively but bizarre affair. A tale of a battle for control over Queen Anne by two extraordinarily different women, it is certain to be plenty of fun and filled (hopefully) with a sharply witty script delivered to… Read More

REVIEW: Mary Poppins Returns

This sequel to the beloved 1964 original is filled with little tributes to the original but manages to stand out and feel completely original thanks to Rob Marshall’s practically perfect direction.  Watching this sequel feels like coming back to a home that you didn’t realise you missed – filled with familiar details and nods to… Read More
