Well written - you should be proud of him.

All the Money in the World - another true story, this time the 1970's kidnapping of Paul Getty, teenage grandson of squillionaire oil magnate J Paul Getty. Some sumptuous cinematography portraying 1970s Rome, but this felt slow and a bit disconnected to me, all the more surprising given that it's a Ridley Scott film

Indeed. Very well put together. Avoids the obvious cliches.

Read the review for 'all the money in the world' ... a film that would have escaped me had I not seen his blog but will now endeavour to watch.

Thought it was a really well written blog, immaculately proof read and really easy reading. Gives a fantastic insight in to the film without any spoilers which is a big plus. Give him my props and hopefully he keeps it up :D

Weirdly enough, me and a friend have spoken about doing a podcast for film reviews and general chitter chatter about films for a few months now. Something we are both passionate about. So I’ll definitely give it a read. Always interested in other people’s opinions.
