4/5 Antigone (2019) Bianca Garner Ricci is astonishing as Antigone. She has a way of demonstrating so much raw emotion in her gaze and when she looks directly into the camera in one scene, it is almost like she is peering into the soul of the viewer. EDIT

5/5 Summer of Soul (...Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised) (2021) Rosa Parra Saddened I saw this at home on a small screen, but happy this footage has finally been out of the basement after 50 years.

Posted Mar 6, 2021
2/5 Prisoners of the Ghostland (2021) Rosa Parra A multiple genre film that's oversaturated with violence, gruesome kills, and an unhinged Nicolas Cage. It's crazy fun, just not my type of fun. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2021
2/5 The World to Come (2020) Rosa Parra A visually beautiful period piece where the two female leads have zero chemistry and the voice-over narration is too much. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2021
2/5 Cryptozoo (2021) Rosa Parra The animated adult version of fantastic beasts with plenty of violence that doesn't entirely work. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2021

Nowhere Boy (2009) Bianca Garner For any massive fans of The Beatles then this is a must-see. The filmmakers also manage to carefully and effectively replicate the lates 50s and early 60s era in great attention to detail. EDIT
Posted Feb 2, 2021
What Women Want (2000) Bianca Garner Just a bit of fluff that is perfect to watch while chilling out on the sofa. EDIT
Posted Feb 2, 2021

Posted Feb 2, 2021
Meek's Cutoff (2010) Bianca Garner This a slow, artistic, revisionistic take on the Western film so it'll certainly be a good film to watch and absorb over the course of a long hot summer's afternoon. EDIT
Posted Feb 2, 2021
The Bling Ring (2013) Bianca Garner Sofia Coppola + Emma Watson + Taissa Farmiga + Leslie Mann + Paris Hilton...do we need to say anymore? EDIT

Posted Feb 2, 2021
2/5 Yes, God, Yes (2019) Bianca Garner ...fun and exciting in terms of its potential, enjoyable during the act, but upon reflection, very unsatisfactory and a little bit embarrassing. EDIT
Posted Feb 2, 2021
3.5/5 Feels Good Man (2020) Bianca Garner Feels Good Man attempts to explore the myth that is 'Pepe the frog' and it does a pretty decent job. EDIT
Posted Feb 2, 2021
3.5/5 The Boys in the Band (2020) Bianca Garner It's a piece to be congratulated for its honourable acting from a passionate cast, all involved within the LGBTQ community, something that within itself is a turning point for Hollywood. EDIT
Posted Feb 2, 2021
5/5 Little Women (2019) Nicole Ackman It has all the coziness and warmth one expects from this sort of nostalgic period drama, while also capturing the revolutionary spirit of Alcott's novel. EDIT
Posted Feb 2, 2021
2/5 Look Away (2019) Nicole Ackman It has interesting things to say about grief and relationships and good performances, but it fails to sell the audience on the romance. EDIT
