Mamma Mia 2

Spoiler-Free, quick review! Okay, confession time first. When the first Mamma Mia film came out ten years ago I hated it. The singing by some of the male cast really put me off, especially Pierce Brosnan's. Over the years though I have grown to love it. Partly because my niece rammed it into my head...

Director Rian Johnson dared to go where no one has gone before and actually make a film that was very... Continue Reading →

Sometimes I agree with others, sometimes not. Filmgoing is a very personal experience for me (which is why I like... Continue Reading →
