3.5/5 1917 (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey The film grabs you from the beginning moments and never really lets you go. It is so realistic that your stomach is in knots wishing the best for the two young soldiers. EDIT

3.5/5 Jojo Rabbit (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Though there is plenty of over the top humour here there is also moments of surprising, sneak up on you poignancy. EDIT

4/5 Little Women (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey A joy to watch, the film truly is for all ages. A period piece which even a younger audience will want to see. EDIT

3.5/5 La leyenda negra (2020) Carey-Ann Pawsey Beautifully shot and staged despite its small budget, this black and white film wears its intentions on its sleeve. EDIT
Posted Feb 7, 2020
2.5/5 Underwater (2020) Carey-Ann Pawsey The thrill of seeing Kristen Stewart run around occasionally in her underwear does wear off and then you are left with those awful monsters. EDIT

3/5 () Carey-Ann Pawsey Carlini's film is very watchable. Primarily because it is very relatable. EDIT

2.5/5 Wuthering Heights (2011) Carey-Ann Pawsey This 2 hour 10 minute film is not anything like I expected. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2020
3/5 The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) Carey-Ann Pawsey Like its title this is a curious film, indeed. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2020
3.5/5 5 to 7 (2014) Carey-Ann Pawsey 5 to 7 is a film that totally flew under the radar, but hopefully will gain the fans it deserve via streaming services. Gems like this one really need to be seen. EDIT

2/5 The Whole Truth (2016) Carey-Ann Pawsey I don't know if it was a budget thing or just inexperience which resulted in this film having the look and quality of a bad movie of the week. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2020
2.5/5 Speed of Life (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey I did enjoy the linking of a transcendent artist like David Bowie causing change in the people's lives in a variety of ways. Some which are not obvious. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2020
3/5 Tell It to the Bees (2018) Carey-Ann Pawsey Totally has the look and feel like something you would see on the BBC. Slow in pacing, solid acting with an engaging story. A small, well made film. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
3/5 () Carey-Ann Pawsey The inspiration for him to make this film was reading the book Aaron James' book of the same name. It caused him to want to explore why. Why that type of person seems to be everywhere you turn today? EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
3.5/5 Queen & Slim (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Things go from annoying to tense to frightening to deadly very quickly. Now Slim and Queen, who were not even going to have a second date, are bound together on the run from the law. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
3.5/5 () Carey-Ann Pawsey Films like this force us to think about allowing more fluidity. Allowing for the person themselves to decide how they want to present themselves. Male, female or neither. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
3/5 Eva and Lola (2010) Carey-Ann Pawsey Almost the entire cast is made up of gypsies, who are not professional actors. They add a sense of realism to the film. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
3/5 The Ground Beneath My Feet (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Here director Marie Kreutzer examines the unknown. The mysterious. While giving it the look and tone of a thriller. Though it isn't. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
3/5 Socrates (2018) Carey-Ann Pawsey An intimate and compelling film. Despite the low budget it does what it has to to tell its tale. Really opens the viewers' hearts and minds to the precarious place of many youth around the world. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
3.5/5 Honey Boy (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Hopefully making this film and sharing his story with the world will help Shia LaBeouf. Will exorcise the demons he has fought most of his life. The truth will set you free, they say, and I hope that is the case for LaBeouf. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
3/5 Artifishal (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey In the end there is still hope. And this film leaves us with that. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
3/5 Come On Feel the Noize: The Story of How Rock Became Metal (2017) Carey-Ann Pawsey This is like having a backstage pass to the evolution of metal and how it has set itself up as something that is going to stay due to its devoted fanbase. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
3/5 Sunday Girl (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Definitely a modern day romantic comedy with loads of anxiety bubbling underneath making it rather funny and poignant at the same time. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
3.5/5 Corpus Christi (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Looking past the how, when and why, the important part of the film is the questions it asks. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
3/5 Bombshell (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Some will dismiss this film as a prime example of white feminism, but because it involves white women freeing themselves from a toxic climate does not make it not relevant for all women. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
3/5 Watch List (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Not your typical drug film as it is filled with unique moments and some heartbreak. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
2.5/5 Badland (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Despite using plenty of the usual tropes of the genre (silent, but appealing anti-hero, a woman in peril, an underdog fight against evil types, etc.) Badlands stumbles. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
3.5/5 Marriage Story (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Traveling along the path forged by a film like Kramer vs. Kramer this is another chapter in the story of marriage. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
4/5 The Irishman (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey A very well done film. A film which allows you to witness Al Pacino, Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci chew up scenery together. EDIT
Posted Jan 2, 2020
The In-Between (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Layered like life, the two women here are rather complex. Ably brought to life by the two actresses, who also bring gravitas to the illnesses their characters are afflicted with. EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2019
() Carey-Ann Pawsey Basically a recipe for disaster which you spend most of the film on edge waiting to happen. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
The Dog Doc (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey The Dog Doc brings us a picture of the future of veterinary medicine. EDIT
Posted Nov 26, 2019
4.5/5 Parasite (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey In a demonstration of masterful filmmaking director Bong Joon Ho's (Snowpiercer, The Host) latest film is uncategorizable and that is a great thing. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2019
4/5 Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Portrait of a Lady on Fire is an exquisite film. A period piece which was conceived of and directed by a woman, features a cast which is almost exclusively female and gives those who watch it a window into the heart and mind of women. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2019
3/5 Sibyl (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey There is just something about French films. If you will pardon my French, a little je ne sais quoi about them. Even if they aren't great they are highly watchable still. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2019
3/5 Farewell to the Night (L'Adieu a la nuit) (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey This is not an easy subject, but co-screenwriter and director André Téchiné demonstrates his sensitivity and veteran savvy. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2019
3.5/5 Liam Gallagher: As It Was (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Yes, he is pompous and wild, but he is also a great frontman and highly watchable. Charlie Lightening and Gavin Fitzgerald's documentary gives us a measured look at the misunderstood man as he attempts a comeback. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2019
4/5 Jordan River Anderson, the Messenger (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Our pride has clouded our collective memory of our treatment of the indigenous people. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2019
3.5/5 () Carey-Ann Pawsey The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville is an iconic live music venue which came from humble beginnings to be the place it is today. Fans of music think of it as a place one must see/experience at least once in their lives. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2019
3/5 Greener Grass (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Though our world has become a rather strange place it is in no way as bizarro as directors Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe short film Greener Grass. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2019
3.5/5 () Carey-Ann Pawsey This is a lesbian love story as you have never seen before. First of all, it features women of a certain age. EDIT
Posted Nov 24, 2019
3.5/5 Stonewall Outloud (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Narrated by RuPaul and featuring Lance Bass, Fortune Feimster, Adam Rippon and others the story is told in a fresh new way with a nod to the past. EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2019
2.5/5 The Parts You Lose (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Strong emotions are meant to be the result. But all I felt was a little bored mixed with disinterested. Nothing really drew you in. EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2019
4/5 Joker (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Even though it is most certainly not your traditional approach to this character. Definitely breaks ground. EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2019
4/5 Nuit 1 (2011) Carey-Ann Pawsey But what makes this film truly stand out, is a twist to how such meetings normally end. Instead of parting ways after the affair, the two try to make it meaningful. EDIT
Posted Oct 16, 2019
3.5/5 Nail in the Coffin: The Fall and Rise of Vampiro (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey Director Michael Paszt's film goes behind the curtain of the professional wrestling industry to peek in at the very personal story of one man Ian Richard Hodgkinson and his lifelong involvement in the sport. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2019
3/5 One Last Night (2018) Carey-Ann Pawsey A first date gone bad...then good...then bad...then good. So basically it is a film which plays on the whole modern day dating scene today when it comes to Tinder, etc. EDIT
Posted Oct 6, 2019
3/5 Golden Boy (2018) Carey-Ann Pawsey While the story is plenty active and interesting, it almost has a feeling of a helter skelter attempt at realism. EDIT
Posted Oct 6, 2019
2.5/5 Harriet (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey As a social "event" this film is a triumph, but purely as a film it was lacking. EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2019
3.5/5 Two of Us (2019) Carey-Ann Pawsey It is a story which easily could have devolved into the melodramatic. Meneghetti never allows that to happen. EDIT
