The Typical Viewing: Matangi/Maya/M.I.A

I’m quite a big fan of M.I.A‘s music. Her political speech looks at topics that play a big role in today’s society (such as the mistreatment of rights, politics and society). If you haven’t heard any of her songs before, then I strongly recommend you do. It’s not just meant to be catchy, her songs are meant to tell a message to the public.

When the trailer for M.I.A‘s film was released, it looked really interesting and different to other musical films of 2018. It looked like she had more to say than what her music videos could, and it looked like she wasn’t playing around. I saw the film very recently on DVD and I now respect Matangi even more than I did before. This film was fantastic.Read More »

The Typical viewing: Belleville Rendez-Vous

I was recently given a copy of the film Belleville Rendezvous¬†(Which is also known as The triplets of Belleville), as my sisters told me I would quite enjoy it. When I watched the film, I felt really unease when watching it. I’m sure it never meant to be freaky, but to me, it looked really off-putting.Read More »

The Typical Viewing: Goblin Slayer

I was on a school trip a few months ago, and in our meantime, we were allowed to go on our phones. I remember checking my twitter and seeing people talking about how controversial Goblin Slayer was. People were comparing it to Berserk (in both, a good way and a bad way). This got me wondering how “controversial” Goblin Slayer was. Once I got home, I went online and watched it.

If I am honest, the show needed more to it than what was given.Read More »

The Typical Viewing: Zero

Zero is an interesting film to tackle because it’s a film that knows what it’s doing, whilst at the same time, it had no idea what it was doing.

When I saw the trailer for it, I thought it looked pretty good. Not only that, but it looked like it was going to tell a relevant, important story that needed to be told to the public.

And the overall result was an alright film.¬† It wasn’t anything too special, but it was an okay watch.Read More »

The Typical Viewing: Suicide Squad

I was bored recently and felt like watching a film. It was too late to go out so I decided to pick a film from my family’s DVD collection. That’s when I stumbled across Suicide Squad and it reminded me of the amount of hatred that the film received. Curiously, I decided to give it a watch. When I got halfway through the film, my mind had already made up it’s decision; This film was ridiculously stupid.Read More »

My top 10 films of 2018

So, 2018 is wrapping up, and it’s been a really good year for me. Not only did I become more social with other bloggers, but i’ve also been more successful with socialising outside and making more freinds. My blog has also improved a lot, this has definitely¬† got to be my most favourite year of blogging as I feel proud with every post I’ve written. every post, every review (aka. The typical viewing), everything this year has made me proud and I’m glad that it has, it’s finally put me into a pathway that I feel comfortable in.

With that said, it’s time to look back on the films that I saw. This year, I saw over 60 films, and choosing just 10 was tough, but after giving it some thought, I’ve narrowed the list down to my top 10 most favourite films of this year. I must say, before we get into the list, that these are of my opinion, others may vary.

Without further ado, here is my top 10 best films of 2018:Read More »
