Nelson , Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, Samuel L Jackson Written by Lucy Buglass It’s safe to say that ‘Incredibles 2′ was my most anticipated film of the year.

Short Film Saturdays: “Future Boyfriend”

Rating: ★★★★ This week I’m taking a look at Future Boyfriend; a quirky romantic comedy film. Running at 10 minutes, the film follows Stuart and Kaylie as they head out for a date at a restaurant. So far, so basic right? That is, until Stuart reveals to Kaylie that he’s actually from the future. Now that’s a bombshell! I really enjoyed this film from the very beginning. Whilst … Continue reading Short Film Saturdays: “Future Boyfriend”

The seven minute … Continue reading Short Film Saturdays (on a Sunday?): “Abe”

Nature vs Nurture: A review of “Hereditary”

Rating: ★★★★ As the classic saying goes… if you haven’t heard of Hereditary by now you’ve probably been living under a rock. It’s everywhere at the moment; on buses and billboards, plastered over film blogs and magazines, you name it, it’s there. It’s this season’s hottest horror film, with critics even branding it the “scariest thing they’ve ever seen”. Critical reception has been largely positive, which made … Continue reading Nature vs Nurture: A review of “Hereditary”

Short Film Saturdays: “Beneath”

  Rating: ★★★★ Beneath is a four minute short based on the horror game The Guts of the City, both created by the hugely talented Jonu Films. This is the first short film I’ve reviewed that is also a game, which immediately sparked my interest after stumbling across Jonu YouTube. I am (albeit an easily scared) fan of horror gaming so I am definitely going to pluck up the … Continue reading Short Film Saturdays: “Beneath”
