    Review - Hamilton on Disney +

    Review - Hamilton on Disney +

    Oh my word! This is the most excited I've been for a film release since the midnight showing of "Avengers: Endgame" last year in my local IMAX. I'm a massive fan of the stage musical, to the point where I've seen it twice in London's West End and once on Broadway - after waiting over 8 hours outside the Richard Rodgers Theatre in the cancellation queue. The favourite cast I've seen to date is the first run from London, but I've always wished I could have seen the original from Broadway with writer and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda starring as the lead; and now I can.

    Review - Frozen 2

    Review - Frozen 2

    After it's early release in the US, "Frozen 2" has just arrived for home streaming via Disney + worldwide, so I thought now was a good time to take a look at the movie that had the unenviable task of following the highest grossing animation film of all time.

    Review - Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga

    I was really looking forward to this and to a certain degree, I think I needed it. My family and I have been really fortunate in a lot of ways over the last few months, but after Brexit, another general election, COVID-19, lockdown and the (essential) aftermath of the recent murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, my soul really needed a fresh, silly, Will Ferrell comedy as a break for ninety minutes.

    Film Review - Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    Film Review - Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    We all knew that when they rebooted "Jurassic Park" with "Jurassic World" in 2015, it was never going to be for a one-off. It was always going to be a new franchise with at least a trilogy of films, they just needed that first one to be a relative success. Well, it proved to be a monster hit with a worldwide gross of over $1.6bn; that's Marvel Avenger's money!

    Disney + is brilliant and a stroke of genius commercially.

    Film Review - Snowpiercer

    With Netflix due to release their new blockbuster mini-series "Snowpiercer" this Monday (25/03/20), I thought that I'd take a look at the 2013 movie on which it's based and see what all the fuss is about.
