*NEW* THE QUIET MAN REVIEW *NEW*

A Ford/Wayne collaboration that wasn’t a Western? A retired American boxer (John Wayne) returns to the village of his birth in Ireland, where he finds love in the form of a fiery redhead (Maureen O’Hara). Easy going, comical, perfect Sunday viewing.

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR REVIEW

10 years, 18 films, was Infinity War worth all the hype? I loved how the Russos made this surprisingly accessible for fans who may not have obsessively watched the entire Marvel backlog beforehand or ever (Sacrilege, I know).

Shhhhh--- Shocking. BUT for the right reasons? A family is forced to live in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound. A tight, taut little thriller.

Night Shyamalan's Signs … Continue reading *NEW* A QUIET PLACE REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* ISLE OF DOGS REVIEW *NEW*

Did you hear the rumours? What rumours? That Isle of Dogs is pretty good. Set in Japan, Isle of Dogs follows a boy's odyssey in search of his lost dog. Confession time, I’m not the biggest Wes Anderson fan. BUT I loved his take on Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr Fox. His quirky whimsical style suiting … Continue reading *NEW* ISLE OF DOGS REVIEW *NEW*
