Review: La La Land

Review: La La Land

A month on from the release of La La Land and as expected it is sweeping up the awards. Eloquent delivery, masterful writing and a powerful tale of 'what could have been'.

Picture the scene: you’re stuck in traffic on the motorway, the sun is shining and you’ve got the music going. So, what do you do? The obvious, of course. You get out of your car with a good 30-50 other people in perfect sync and belt out probably the next big classic of musical numbers. […]

Split – Review

Split – Review

Though widely known for his role as Charles Xavier in the latest X-Men franchise, McAvoy caught critics’ attention in 2013 when he played a corrupt, drug-addicted policeman with an array of mental health issues in Jon […]
