From thought provoking thrillers to explorations of robotics and it’s implications, January has been an interesting month when it comes to Film and TV. Here is my take on what I watched in January:
Film and TV-May
May has been an exciting month where I had the opportunity to see some absolutely amazing films at the cinema. Here is my take on a few of them. Also going forward will be reviewing tv as well which is why I have renamed these articles. Enjoy and feel free to add to your film lists. Im on Letterboxd if you also want to see what i’m watching:
It’s the holidays and time to find some new films to get lost in. Here are some of the films I watched in December along with my take on them. Happy viewing everyone!
Lily takes on travels to Split
Upon arrival at Heathrow Airport, having been deprived of international travel for a full 17 months, I had all but forgotten how to travel, not remembering a plastic zip lock bag for toiletries and casually forgetting to look at the gate board. I have been to Croatia only once before for a festival. I loved…
Hello, fellow film lovers, I bring you May’s film discussion with some films I started my year with in 2021. Hope you enjoy watching these powerful, ethically charged dramas that look at interesting characters as much as I did. Burning A unique drama where the viewer is invited to piece together the shuffled jigsaw that…

Film discussion – Welcome to the Blumhouse

(Tiptoe Through The Tulips still haunts me) I don’t enjoy supernatural horror films, instead favouring psychological…
Film discussion: Focus on some drama and action flicks
For this film discussion I will focus on some drama and action flicks I have watched recently. These cover topics ranging from adrenalin fuelled action, to heist, workplace harassment, moving away from home ,the fallout from an information leak and the effect that being a horror writer can have on someone’s life. There’s nothing like an engaging drama or action film to transport viewers to a new world with impactful characterisation that informs these themes.
Film discussion of the week- London BFI Film Festival 2020
I do like a good film festival. I would go to the NZ International Film Festival every year to discover the latest in original cinematic experience. Thank goodness I found a UK equivalent. Although I presume that now I have got a taste of European cinema my next stop is Cannes next May. I flicked through the BFI programme and chose the films that peaked my interest. Thought provoking documentaries, body snatching assassins, twists on the vampire genre and what happpens when you are raised by grifters are all to be explored in my take on this years BFI gems.
