    John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

    ★★

    It's a real shame that the John Wick series seems to be continuing down such a downward trend, going further and further from what made the original so compelling. Sure, there's plenty of glossy and well choreographed action but at a certain point it just becomes derivative with both narrative and character feeling improvised to up the ante of the action from movie to movie.

    The action set pieces are certainly bigger but are far less interesting and inventive when…

    ★★★★

    The Favourite is an odd beast, it's a film that radiates sexual tension yet posits it in such a cynical light that you can't help but be drawn into the faults of the characters and their respective relationships as opposed to the relationships themselves. Each and every character a puppet to one another, pulling strings and playing nasty to gain the favour of Queen Anne (played spectacularly by Olivia Colman) in a bid to hold onto or to gain any…
