Bohemian Rhapsody

Tom’s Rating: 9/10 – Lucy’s Rating: 10/10. The first 10/10 review on this blog comes from Lucy for Bohemian Rhapsody that had, I discovered this morning, pretty poor reviews from critics.


Tom’s Rating: 7/10 – Lucy’s Rating: 7/10. Spoilers ahead. Dogman is the sort of film I really enjoy. The arthouse picture that tells its story as much through cinematography as it does through dialogue.

Farrenheit 11/9

Tom’s Rating: 5/10. Farrenheit 11/9 was my first Michael Moore film. I knew Moore’s reputation, and having read mixed reviews about this documentary, I went to the screening with some apprehension.

First Man

Tom’s Rating: 7/10 (+1 for space film) – Lucy’s Rating: 8/10. Most people know at least the basics of the first moon landing. There are few ways therefore to spoil the story or, in fact, surprise an audience.

The Wife

Tom’s Rating: 8/10 – Lucy’s Rating: 8/10. Recently more films (and big-budget TV series) seem to be using long, tense shots of characters’ faces to catch the emotional turbulence of their subject.
