    Sorry to do this again but I finished uni this week and am looking for film-based jobs. On set or in a writer’s room would be amazing, but realistically I’d like to review films for some kind of entertainment publication. I have work experience, a degree in Film and Screenwriting, scripts, portfolios, blogs, reviews, cover letters and CV’s available to anyone who wants to see them (directing a few short films this year too so will have them available soon).…

    “Things work out”

    I remember reading Eli Hayes’ review of Marriage Story and in it he wrote a powerful description about how once in a blue moon, a movie will come out at just the right time with all the right themes that feels as though it was hand-crafted just for you. Beautiful though his words were, I didn’t truly know what they meant until today.

    I was gonna write a pretentious analogy about how being in your 20’s can…

    Apologies to those who’ve already seen it but as I can’t do any videos at the moment due to moving flats and making a short film (which I’ll link soon!), watch My 10 Most Anticipated Movies video -> HERE.

    Also I hate doing this but I’m looking for a job as a film reviewer (I have 3+ years experience, a CV and a portfolio) so if anyone runs a website or knows of any, particularly any that pay and are…

    Last time I’ll plug it but you can watch My Top 10 Anticipated Movies -> HERE! 

    Before I go into detail about why I’m so hyped for Babylon, I just wanted to take a second to say once again that I’m now officially no longer a student, having just completed my degree in Film with Screenwriting, and would very much appreciate it if anyone on here would email me at danhobson96@hotmail.com if they have or know of any film-based work, be…

    The Lighthouse

    ★★★★

    Just want to express my sadness at how overlooked this film has been in terms of Academy Awards recognition.

    I know some films like Uncut Gems, Midsommar and The Farewell didn’t get a single nomination - which I also think is ridiculous - but I really think The Lighthouse deserves to be competing in at least 6 major categories (score, cinematography, actor, supporting actor, director and picture). Possibly even production design, editing and a couple of the smaller sound awards too.…

    YouTube review

    First let me say this: if you hate everything about this movie, I completely understand, and if you love everything about this movie, I get that too. It’s a mixed bag for sure, but I have to say I lean more towards loving it than hating it.

    The action sequences are well-helmed and that general sense of otherworldly adventure is ever-present. Rey and Kylo’s will-they-won’t-they dynamic is interesting as always and Adam Driver gives a great performance with the…
