I feel like I say it every time I talk about them, but it is always great to see a new Aardman movie. They are one of the few studios still committed to stop motion animation and, after reading the book Aardman: An Epic Journey Taken One Frame at a Time, I have a new… Continue reading Farmageddon: A Shaun the Sheep Movie Review
This is a film where I was more interested in the experience of seeing it rather than the plot.

What I… Continue reading Rambo: Last Blood Review
This film is one that I didn’t really have any expectations for. I hadn’t read the book it was based on and I haven’t seen any of the previous films of director John Crowley. I have seen films written by the same person who wrote this film, but considering the last film he wrote was… Continue reading The Goldfinch Review
