Film Review: The Iceman

Posted on by 5WC in Film

The only thing that really drew me to The Iceman was the inclusion of Winona Ryder. And even then, it very nearly didn’t happen as I somehow managed to cross it off the “to watch” list of On-Demand movies before I’d actually seen it. But, having rescued it from the fraudulent strikethrough, I had a …

Film Review: Trees Lounge

Posted on by 5WC in Film

I’ve been a huge fan of Steve Buscemi ever since I first saw him attempt a best man speech, drunk at a wedding. And when you follow that up with a manic turn, riding bareback on a nuclear warhead, it’s an impressive way to demand cinematic attention. Let alone then providing the perfect definition of …

Film Review: The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas

Posted on by 5WC in Film

The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas has always been something of an enigma to me. I have always been drawn to it whenever I have seen it: sitting on a shelf, in a TV guide, listed on demand. And yet, for one reason or another I have never committed to it. But last night I …

Film Review: Chocolat

Posted on by 5WC in Film

It may or may not be the best move in the world to watch a film, so indulgently centred around cocoa, when you suffer from an eating disorder and struggle mentally with thoughts of biscuits, chocolate and getting fat. But that’s exactly what I did, and somehow I managed to survive. Chocolat is one of …

Film Review: Ida

Posted on by 5WC in Film

People have been raving for a while now about Ida, about how this movie is “perfect” and “eerily beautiful” and how this was a film that you needed to see. This was a film that would make you realise just how good cinema could be. However, for me, I kept finding myself slightly detached and …

Film Review: Joe

Posted on by 5WC in Film

They say that timing is everything, and this is completely true for my reasons for unashamedly saying: I like Nicolas Cage! It just happens that the teenage years in my life, the time when you graduate from PG and 12A films into the grown up world of 15s, fell at the exact moment Cage was …

Film Review: Jack Goes Boating

Posted on by 5WC in Film

There was a time when I was much younger, didn’t own a mobile phone let alone have any idea what Facebook, Twitter or Google were and when you went to the cinema you didn’t use an automate ticket machine to collect pre books tickets but instead you’d stand in a queue to waiting to see …

Film Review: Frances Ha

Posted on by 5WC in Film

I can’t remember why exactly but Frances Ha is one of those films that I have always been drawn to, always had on my radar as a film to see, but never actually bothering to make the effort to do so. There was always another film, another day, some poor excuse as to why I …

Film Review: Salmon Fishing In The Yemen

Posted on by 5WC in Film

Recently I discovered the potential delights of the Curzon Home Cinema service now available through Freesat and decided that I’d give it a go. So I signed up, added some funds and went searching for a cheap, but potentially good film to act as the proverbial guinea pig. And Salmon Fishing In The Yemen seemed …

Film Review: Love Is Strange

Posted on by 5WC in Film

I remember hearing nothing but good things about Love Is Strange. I even vaguely recall that it was released at around the time as another, more box office, love story and in the same way that The Duke of Burgundy was highlighted above 50 Shades Of Grey as being the better dominance movie, Love Is …
