Review – Bridge of Spies

Bridge of Spies

Bridge of Spies, directed by Steven Spielberg delivers what is to be expected from the famous director. This is a film that is bustling with what makes Spielberg such a beloved and well known director – however it also means that Bridge of Spies comes burdened with some of the things that Spielberg has become slightly infamous for doing in his films. This is an interesting package of a film, and certainly offers a lot for the audience to walk away with (good and bad). Read more

Steve Jobs, directed by Danny Boyle and written by the always divisive Aaron Sorkin.

Despite this film being very small in scope, Steve Jobs as a film delivers something memorable and attention grabbing. Read more
