Spoiler Filled Thoughts on "Sherlock" Series Four

In “Bad Boys” Joe Pantoliano’s Captain Howard is in the process of berating Detectives Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) after Miami Dade Police Department has been robbed of seized drugs. He says: “Just do what you do; only faster.” That’s the exact pep talk that you imagine Mark Gatiss and Stephan Moffatt having with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as they return to Baker Street for the fourth series of “Sherlock.”

#NASTYWOMEN COLUMN 9: WHAT WOMEN WANT (2000) Review

I am super familiar with this film, when I was younger, my grandmother had it on VHS and I would watch it, rewind and watch it again and repeat several times over until she got jack of it and intervened. This is the first time I’ve re-watched as an adult and I have to say, it’s a very hard watch, due to old mate at the forefront.

#NASTYWOMEN: WEEK 7 – FRIDA (2002) REVIEW

How it took fourteen years for me to watch Frida, I’ll never know. This passionate and perfectly executed biopic paints a colourful picture. Frida Kahlo certainly had an exciting life.

#NASTYWOMEN: COLUMN 6: NOW AND THEN (1995) REVIEW

Now and Then was literally the film of my childhood. I was OBSESSED with the friendship and adventures of the four young women, Samantha (Gaby Hoffmann), Roberta (Christina Ricci), Teeny (Thora Birch) and Chrissy (Ashleigh Aston-Moore). The summer they spent together in 1970 was so wonderful and inspirational to my young mind, I thought they were the coolest girls ever.

#NASTYWOMEN: COLUMN 5: THE BABADOOK (2012) REVIEW

I feel like quite a few of us have our own Babadooks that we’ve battled, or are battling. There is always a way out of the darkness, no matter how scary or overwhelming it might be.

#NASTYWOMEN: COLUMN 4: ZERO DARK THIRTY (2012) REVIEW

I am quite drawn to and fascinated by the events in Zero Dark Thirty, but there is the huge question mark surrounding the film’s historical accuracy. Sure, it’s based on what happened, but how reliable is it? It depends on who you ask.

The Hairy Bird was one of the most iconic films of my teenage years, but upon my re-watch I realised that it packs so much more of a punch than my younger self was able to comprehend.

#NASTYWOMEN: COLUMN 1: CLUELESS (1996) REVIEW by Chloe Sesta Jacobs

In this column I’ll be focusing on women in film; profiling wonderful directors, writers and characters. While I’ll be open to exploring great female characters in all films, I’m going to concentrate on and celebrate women surrounded by women.
