Cinema Snippets: I, Tonya & Lady Bird

Cinema Snippets: I, Tonya & Lady Bird

I’ve seen so many films recently that I’m not keeping up with writing individual reviews for them all! So, similar to my snippet reviews of books I did a while ago, I’m going to write Cinema Snippets. I’ll include a couple of films in one post and give my brief thoughts about them, rather than a full review.

Recently I saw two films with strong female main characters: I, Tonya, starring Margot Robbie, and Lady Bird, starring Saorise Ronan. I really liked them both! Here's my short review of each of the two films.

Today’s reviews are what I’m going to call the Strong Women Edition: Lady Bird and I, Tonya. I loved both of these films for completely different reasons! Here are my thoughts.

CinemaScoop: Introduction
(a.k.a. What the Heck is CinemaScoop?)

CinemaScoop is a new series all about my opinions on this year's new cinema releases. I love films (I have a film degree!) so I can't wait to get started!

I don’t like to set new year’s resolutions – I never have. They’re always just a little bit disappointing if you get halfway through the year and realise you haven’t started working towards one. That’s why I skip that disappointment completely by not setting any!

However, this year, I did set one goal: to go to the cinema more often. It doesn’t seem like a huge deal, but far too often I find myself too wrapped up in everyday life that I forget to have hobbies. I adore going to the cinema and last year, I felt disappointed that I missed out on so many films because I hardly ever went. This year, I want to change that.

That’s where CinemaScoop comes in.
