Review: The Knight Before Christmas

Review: The Knight Before Christmas

Made for and, presumably, by teenage girls that thoroughly believe their immature and oddly perverse fan fictions of being whisked away by a charming prince should be brought to life, The Knight Before Christmas feeds a concerning fantasy held by millions of Netflix subscribers. Finally, answering the question that is “What happens if Vanessa Hudgens didn’t quite […]

Review: Marriage Story

Review: Marriage Story

I’ll be the first to admit that I am not the biggest fan of director Noah Baumbach. I found his work in both The Squid and The Whale and While We Were Young enjoyable yet completely forgettable. His work in his recent Netflix pieces has had the same effect, yet to lesser degrees of enjoyment, […]

Movie Review: Gemini Man

Movie Review: Gemini Man

If you’d have thought Gemini Man would’ve released to anything more than an entirely lukewarm response, you’re living in a dreamworld. Judging by the lack of energy that went into Ang Lee’s latest directing vision, I was surprised to see how completely mediocre it was. Not because I was expecting anything better, but because I […]

Movie Review: Playmobil The Movie

Movie Review: Playmobil The Movie

It seems rather obvious that given the success of The Lego Movie we would eventually see knock off products release their own feature length films to cash in on the hype of younger audiences wanting to see their favourite toys on the big screen. We’ve yet to have the luxuary of a Halo: Mega Bloks […]

Review: The Report

Review: The Report

Adam Driver really wants an Academy Award. I say this as I look through his listed filmography for the past two years. He’s came close to a Supporting Actor win for his role in BlacKkKlansman, however I sense that this wouldn’t have been enough to feed his hunger for the golden statue. His work on The Report sets him up […]

Review: A Rainy Day in New York

Review: A Rainy Day in New York

Even though his modern outputs are the equivalent nostalgia fuelled mediocrity you’d expect from a director that has made more than fifty films over the course of the past half century, I still found myself extremely excited for Woody Allen’s latest project. A Rainy Day in New York is the long-awaited return to the streets of Manhattan […]

Comedy Review: Daniel Sloss: X

Comedy Review: Daniel Sloss: X

For those unaware of Scottish born comedian Daniel Sloss, you’re most certainly missing out on one of the funniest up and comers working comedy at the moment. He’s coarse, vulgar and yet he manages to present a connectively wholesome energy that lasts throughout his stand-up shows. His work in his Netflix original, Daniel Sloss: Live Shows, provides […]

Film Review: The Dream Palace

Film Review: The Dream Palace

The impact that the Tyneside Cinema has had on the North East is unequivocal. How it has shaped generations of avid film fans and movie goers is incredible, and it’s a sad shame that there isn’t more material out there documenting its bold stance within history. The Dream Palace: A People’s History of Tyneside Cinema takes the […]

Film Review: Zeroville

Film Review: Zeroville

Any project that is shelved for a number of years and then coughed out by an unknown production company is bound to send shivers up the spine of any reviewer who even thinks to search out such a project. Zeroville was completed way back in the distant year of 2014, but it’s only now that James Franco’s […]
