Darkest Hour

Darkest Hour Review - BTG lifestyle

For a film about a bunch of old men sitting in rooms, discussing war and arguing about what to do next, Darkest Hour is a surprisingly beautiful film. Bruno Delbonnel took time crafting each shot to capture the mood of a room at any given moment, and this has earned him an Oscar nomination in 2018….

Dunkirk Perspectives - Land Air And Sea at Dunkirk - Film Review - Movie Review - BTG Lifestyle

I love Christopher Nolan films. I love them for many different reasons, but mostly I love them for their uniqueness. There is a particularly ‘Nolan-esque’ quality to all his films – there is no other way to describe this – they are all utterly distinctive.

The only standard by which to judge a Christopher Nolan film is to compare it to another Nolan film. I often say that Quentin Tarantino films cannot be compared to anything other than Tarantino films and Christopher Nolan has carved out his own specific niche as well…

Get Out

Get Out Movie Poster BTG Lifestyle

I’d been waiting ages to watch this film, and finally got a chance to see it earlier this week. Get Out is the directional debut of Jordan Peele, known for the most part (before this) as one half of the iconic comedy sketch duo Key & Peele.

The film focuses on Chris, a black man who visits his white girlfriend’s family for the first time on their estate. At first everything seems quite normal, and then things start to get weird…

Phantom Thread

Phantom Thread Spoiler-Free Review - BTG Lifestyle - Oscars 2018

Let’s face it, we were all pretty damn excited or upset when Daniel Day-Lewis announced that he was working on his final film before retiring from acting entirely. Upset that this would likely be his last film ever, and it’s a shame to see a talented actor not spend all of his time doing what he’s best at. And excited that the film would be directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, the same masterful filmmaker who directed Day-Lewis to his second Oscar win after 18 years, meaning that the film would probably be amazing…

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

When Martin McDonough makes a film, I always make a point of seeing it. In Bruges was brilliant and Seven Psychopaths is a firm favourite of mine so when I heard he’s teaming up with Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson again, but this time adding Frances McDormand to the mix I knew it was going to be something special…
