Top 10 Female Performances of 2015

Next up in my year end lists are my top 10 performances by an actress this year. This was probably the hardest list to cut down to 10 because there were so many great performances. In any other year my honourable mentions would have made up a really strong list. In accordance with my rules… Continue reading Top 10 Female Performances of 2015

Top 10 Male Performances of 2015

This was another really hard list to write up. There were a lot of great male performances this year and, like with the actresses, another equally valid top 10 could have been made from my honourable mentions.

All the tropes we now… Continue reading Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Review

Bridge of Spies Review

Since it was first announced a film I’ve had extremely high hopes for has been Bridge of Spies. I’m a sucker for any iukind of Cold War political thriller and the prospect of one centred partly on the U2 Spy Plane Scandal directed by Steven Spielberg and co-written by the Coen Brothers felt right up… Continue reading Bridge of Spies Review

The Good Dinosaur Review

For the past few years, one of the films that has made me the most apprehensive about its success was Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur.
