Call Me By Your Name: Beautiful Setting & LGBT Representation

Call Me By Your Name: Beautiful Setting & LGBT Representation

It’s not often that I go and see a film that I know absolutely nothing about, but when I saw that Call Me By Your Name had been nominated for various big awards (including Best Film, Best Actor, and Best Adapted Screenplay at the Oscars), I wanted to see what the fuss was about. It came out a while ago but it was showing in my local theatre where they often show films that didn’t have a wide release, so I had to take the opportunity to see it!

I wasn’t sure at first what I’d think of it at first because I didn’t know anything about it, but I ended up really enjoying it! Here are my thoughts…

The Shape of Water: Exceptional Cast, Beautiful Story & Gorgeous Music

Oh my goodness, if there’s a film this year that has completely blown my socks off, it’s The Shape of Water. I was so excited to see this film for ages before it came out, and I was even more excited that I got to see it early at a Cineworld Unlimited screening at the end of January. Now, to top it all off, it just won Best Picture at the Oscars and I couldn’t be happier!!!

The Shape of Water dominated the 2018 Oscar nominations and went on to win Best Picture. Here's my review of one of the most beautiful films this year!

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri: Does It Deserve the Hype?

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri seemed to dominate the BAFTAs this year, with awards going to Frances McDormand for Best Actress, Sam Rockwell for Best Supporting Actor, and it even won the biggest award of the night, Best Film. It’s been hyped for its incredible acting, writing and story – but do I think it lives up to the hype?

The hype from both critics and audiences for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri has been crazy, so I decided to see for myself if it deserves it!

I went to see the film a few weeks ago without really knowing a great deal about it apart from that Frances McDormand is in it, so this was another film I was going into without having many expectations or opinions. Here’s what I thought!
