Often when the Oscar ceremony rolls around, us fans in the UK are still missing out on some of the biggest hitters and it is only when they bring home the statues that they get a British release.

Like everything else in the world right now, 2021 Oscar time is different. You have Mank, which is from Netflix and therefore showing on their platform. And now this week we get two films that I cannot wait to catch – first Riz Ahmed’s Sound Of Metal is available RIGHT NOW on Amazon Prime, I have read plenty about this one and apparently its use of sound is revolutionary and Ahmed, as always, puts in a great performance.

Secondly, Promising Young Woman, Carey Mulligan’s revenge epic is coming to Sky Movies / Now TV this Friday, so I will definitely be catching both as soon as possible!
