Movie Review: The Mitchells vs. The Machines

                                                Family is so incredibly important. That is at least something The Mitchells vs. The Machines can offer. How the immediate family reacts to one leaving the nest is dependent on the close rigidity […]

Movie Review: The Mauritanian

Movie Review: The Mauritanian

Modern history and the politics around it are always solid cannon fodder for filmmakers. It allows them to convey a message or meaning that they feel best represents the period but also gives them headway in attracting attention for their adaptation of reality. Official Secrets depicted the fallout of 9/11, the leaked memos that led to […]

TV Review: Your Honor

TV Review: Your Honor

One of the key, lingering themes Bryan Cranston can deliver so well is how he interacts with family. His greatest shows have always had him interact with loved ones. Malcolm in the Middle was the bumbling family man looking to keep it all together, and Breaking Bad was much the same, although with the obvious difference of drugs, destructive behaviour […]

TV Review: Normal People

TV Review: Normal People

Naming your show Normal People proposes the idea that these people will, invariably, be normal. For the whole running time. They will clean pots and pans, have miserable experiences with other people, and, in general, have a thoroughly glum time. “Love sparks in the most mundane of places” seems to be the message of Sally Rooney’s […]

Movie Review: Godzilla vs. Kong

Movie Review: Godzilla vs. Kong

How far we have come since the first encounter of man, ape and lizard. When Toho first outed these two beasts, they fought with all the grace and effort of bumbling, uncoordinated men in costumes. That is what they were. The dawn of computer graphics has left both Godzilla and King Kong with not just room to grow, but wider audiences to impress. Godzilla vs. […]

TV Review: Can’t Get You Out of My Head

TV Review: Can’t Get You Out of My Head

Charming and erratic appear to be the two best words to describe documentary maker Adam Curtis. His doom-highlighting touch throughout his latest series for the BBC, Can’t Get You Out of My Head, is given ample time to dissect and discuss a variety of hot-topic issues the modern era faces, and where they may stem from. […]

Movie Review: The Father

Movie Review: The Father

With ageism so pertinent in arts industries, it is rather compelling and reassuring to see a story of age told on such a grand scale. Tender and frail years are inevitably ahead of us all, and The Father follows Anthony (Anthony Hopkins) refusing to accept that his best years are behind him. He can no longer experience […]

Movie Review: The Mole Agent

Movie Review: The Mole Agent

There is a notable, obvious gap found between my generation and that of the elderly gentlemen opening The Mole Agent. “It is unnecessary,” one says of Wi-Fi. It is at this tender, fragile age that people begin to lose themselves. They have accepted their fate, sheltered by the scrap heap of care homes. Their filter for […]

Movie Review: Raya and the Last Dragon

Movie Review: Raya and the Last Dragon

After hitting such highs with Blindspotting, director Carlos López Estrada had nowhere to go but down. Raya and the Last Dragon is the sobering aftereffects of hitting the ground running, and subsequently tripping over your shoelaces. How the promising has fallen, but at least he has gotten his foot in the door. At what cost? At the cost […]
