Movie Review: Songbird

Movie Review: Songbird

Escapism has been a facet of filmmaking for decades. Passed down from filmmaker to filmmaker, those looking to extract audiences from reality have been dependable magic makers. Dreamers that look to keep our minds away from current events. Innovative creators who can pull us out of the dreary hell that is modern life and into […]

Movie Review: I Care A Lot

Movie Review: I Care A Lot

Deeply rooted in the court cases, emotional strife and torturous ease of manipulating facts and figures yet far removed from the actual meaning and feelings of these actions, I Care A Lot is a mixed bag. With Rosamund Pike at the centre of it all, director J Blakeson crafts a formidably interesting narrative, following Marla Grayson (Pike), a court-appointed […]

Movie Review: Falling

Movie Review: Falling

As more and more actors breach through the front of the screen and worm their way behind the camera, the independent film market is slowly being overtaken by big-name actors loaning a few million to put a passion project out there. As hard it may be to not criticise this system and the many downsides of it, […]

Movie Review: To All the Boys: Always and Forever

Movie Review: To All the Boys: Always and Forever

Few things are constant in life. The sun will shine, the twenty-four-hour cycle will push through, and Netflix will always release bad content. Hopefully the final nail in the coffin that is To All the Boys’ standing as a trilogy, To All the Boys: Always and Forever was an inevitability, rather than something to eagerly anticipate. When Oasis gets […]

Movie Review: Monster Hunter

Movie Review: Monster Hunter

Visual flair only takes a film so far, but director Paul W. S. Anderson has yet to grasp that. Adapting video games to film for the better part of two decades, Anderson and various studios have coasted along on the relatively comfortable notion that fans will lap up anything even vaguely connected to the IPs […]

Single Review: The Red Monroes – The Way I Feel

Single Review: The Red Monroes – The Way I Feel

Traditional rock fans, rejoice! The Red Monroes provide a track that feels trapped in a box nostalgic for the screaming guitars of AC/DC and the placid tones of love found on just about any album from Chris Cornell. The Way I Feel is traditional and cliché, but serves its purpose well.   Clocking in at a sturdy four and a […]

Movie Review: Babyteeth

Movie Review: Babyteeth

One distinct tactic the modern, independent drama is now having to tactfully employ, is the inability to move away from the A24 banner. Try as they might, they cannot escape the vacuum, and we have been taken along for the rise. Yes, you, the reader, have been thrown into this black hole too. Accept it. […]

Movie Review: Saint Maud

Movie Review: Saint Maud

Affliction and religion are deeply connected, but not through causation or correlation. When grief or troubled times are ahead, how many of those stalwart deity doubters turn to the almighty? Saint Maud uses this thought as the core of its narrative, a self-indulgent dancer hit with a chronic illness is paired with a passionate believer, a woman […]

Single Review: Steven Faulkner – The Man You Deserve

Single Review: Steven Faulkner – The Man You Deserve

The prominent single of his Bare Bones – Acoustic album, The Man You Deserve is a simple, effective track from Steven Faulkner.   Not quite as stripped back as his album would suggest, The Man You Deserve is a cacophony of instruments which set the stage for Faulkner’s exceptional talent as a singer. He provides a grand variety here, showcasing the best […]
