Promising Young Woman - Carey Mulligan plots and schemes Vengeance from a Coffee shop Promising Young Woman is a timely drama from Director Emerald Fennell and wears it’s ‘me too’ influence proudly on its sleeve.  There is a section of society that may feel this is a ‘man bashing’ film but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

You would have left yourself vulnerable, but does that justify sexual assault?…

When I think of Owen Wilson, I always think comedies, but Bliss is definitely not that. He plays Greg, a recently divorced man trying to hold his life together. Following a chance meeting with the enchanting Isabel, she sets out proving to him that the drab, depressing, polluted world they are living in is not real and actually a simulation.

Soul Review – Can Disney really deliver its sweetest movie gift for Christmas 2020?

Soul is an ambitious animated feature with lush visuals, a vivid world, and a unique style all of its own. Pixar were always going to face an uphill battle with its chosen subject matter. A film which has Jazz music and death as its focus was likely to be a difficult sell to those who come to Disney for their standard fairy tale stories and singalong songs. For those looking for somethings a bit more and are prepared to dig a bit deeper, Soul throws up some interesting questions of obsession, life, and purpose. Many of us get stuck in…
