Summerland (2020) Katie Hogan Any road or journey film goes through its similar stages and beats, with the characters growing or coming to an understanding and conclusion. But this story ends in a much more satisfactory way. EDIT

() Katie Hogan The style and design of the film is to be admired and marvelled at. EDIT

Yes, God, Yes (2019) Katie Hogan One of the most joyous things about this film is the title, literally nailing this pure feeling of ecstasy and incorporating the oppressed religious aspect of the narrative. EDIT

Queen & Slim (2019) Katie Hogan Twisting the lovers on the run trope, as these two people are virutally strangers, and are on the run because they had no choice, we not only get to see their story play out through desparate moments to more tender ones... EDIT

1BR (2019) Katie Hogan As a production plagued by disasters, the film comes out unscathed. Resisting the trend of other films of the same genre, the story and characters really explore the fact that real horror is other people no matter where you find yourself. EDIT

The Beach House (2019) Katie Hogan Science fiction is the companion to horror, fear of the known and unknown go hand in hand creating numerous opportunities to get creative and that exactly what writer and director Jeffrey A. Brown has done. EDIT

To the Stars (2019) Katie Hogan Although this is director Martha Stephens' fourth feature, it feels absurd that we haven't heard more about her previous films. EDIT

How to Fake a War (2019) Katie Hogan I am positive it will find a worthy audience that would make their dark hearts laugh. EDIT
Posted Jan 29, 2020
2/5 Wounds (2019) Katie Hogan The plot is convoluted and never decides what the story is really about, which just makes you feel excluded from the story. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
Earthquake Bird (2019) Katie Hogan It's difficult to connect with any of the characters and feel any sympathy for them. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
Make Up (2019) Katie Hogan Claire Oakley's debut feature does make you wonder what she has to offer next. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
First Love (2019) Katie Hogan An entertaining crazy fueled story with a very sweet delicate center. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
Little Monsters (2019) Katie Hogan With any new zombie film there is a pressure to find a new angle and writer-director Abe Forsythe has definitely found it. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
Maggie (2018) Katie Hogan A flawed but amusing at times comedy that tries to cover far more than it really needs to. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
Love & Bananas: An Elephant Story (2018) Katie Hogan A brilliant documentary, full of emotion and passion at all the right moments, its hard not to fall in love with these animals. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
Teen Spirit (2018) Katie Hogan 'Teen Spirit' does feel like a first feature, with the familiar beats and characters BUT it also serves as taster of what Minghella will make next. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
Booksmart (2019) Katie Hogan Every aspect about 'Booksmart' subverts the stereotypical high school film, there are no eye roll moments of despair, every second is gold. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
Animals (2019) Katie Hogan Hyde's film really immerses you into the world of Laura and Tyler but not as an audience, but as a participant. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
Widows (2018) Katie Hogan McQueen's version of 'Widows' offer more than a straightforward heist film. There are dirty politics and family struggles being played out. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
In the Aisles (2018) Katie Hogan Their long looks, stolen glances and small kind gestures make the world of the supermarket bearable and a little brighter. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
Mandy (2018) Katie Hogan The film at times does feel like death metal band's music video but throughout, the story seems to be as if it was lifted directly from the pages of a dark fantasy novel, similar to the one Mandy reads in the film. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
Terminal (2018) Katie Hogan Bad accents, accents that just didn't suit characters, dialogue that sounded like it had been taken from student film, the overuse of Alice in Wonderland references, all these things, overshadowned what I think Stein was trying to do. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
Le retour du héros (2018) Katie Hogan The pure comedy in the film is pitch perfect, from ridiculous situations to romantic comedy territory that is actually delightful to follow. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
Dead in a Week (2018) Katie Hogan With a great cast of characters and actors, a hitman comedy about suicide is an unexpected bright light amongst the gritty despressing British film landscape. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2020
Jojo Rabbit (2019) Katie Hogan There are laughs to be had and comedy is the film's second nature, war being its first, the balance between the two does work. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2020
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Katie Hogan After delivering such a brilliant cinematic masterpiece, Rian Johnson's excellent story telling was ignored, negated and just plain disrespected by JJ. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2020
1/5 One for the Money (2012) Katie Hogan In all honesty, this film did not have my attention. I was bored after 10 minutes and I really didn't care what was happening. EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2019
3/5 Let It Snow (2019) Katie Hogan With moments of sweetness, outweighing the blandness of the overall feeling of the film, the little tiny moments of comedy are welcome and actually start to make you enjoy the film despite the very obvious messages it is sending... EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2019
4/5 Ideal Home (2018) Katie Hogan I enjoyed this far more than I thought I would. Very funny and equally frustrating, mostly because of Coogan's character. EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2019
4/5 Support the Girls (2018) Katie Hogan This is also another excellent example of Regina Hall just being brilliant. The more films I see with her in, the better. EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2019
4/5 Doctor Sleep (2019) Katie Hogan With nods to Kubrick's film, this is no nostalgia trip, but more like a last stand. EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2019
2/5 I Do... Until I Don't (2017) Katie Hogan The plot is all over the place and soon loses any connection, with everything being neatly tied up at the end and not really making much sense. EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2019
3/5 Apostle (2018) Katie Hogan A mixture of 'hell is other people' and 'there's something nasty in the woodshed' vibe, I was surprised and honestly, scared. EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2019
2/5 The Laundromat (2019) Katie Hogan The film lacks a direction and instead feels like several different stories that don't quite knit together and because of the subject just left me very angry and dissatisfied. EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2019
3/5 Shirkers (2018) Katie Hogan The fact that everyone knows each other quite well, there is no holding back which gives the film and the story overall an extra added layer of truth despite the main mystery never being told, only speculation is left. EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2019
4/5 Joker (2019) Katie Hogan There are several outstanding moments, a particular favourite of mine being Fleck dressed in a red suit, full make up, dancing on the stairs to THAT song... EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2019
3/5 Greta (2018) Katie Hogan With Isabelle Huppert as Greta, the mystery and charm that surrounds the character is already built into her persona. EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2019
4/5 The Shiny Shrimps (2019) Katie Hogan This is a story about friendship and about supporting your team no matter what. EDIT
