Review: Ad Astra

Review: Ad Astra

The ever-looming awards season is upon us, gather your provisions and prepare for what will, in turn, be a hopefully great few months for film. If you’ve seen as many films as I have from this year, you’ll hopefully be as concerned as I am. Ad Astra felt like a beacon of hope in an otherwise bleak […]

Review: Easy Rider 50th Anniversary

Review: Easy Rider 50th Anniversary

The late Peter Fonda may best be remembered for his role as the free-spirited motorbike riding Wyatt, in Easy Rider. A film directed by and also starring Dennis Hopper brings about a now period defining movie that brings drugs to the heart of Southern California. But the issue with defining period movies is that, the period has […]

Review: Broadway Danny Rose 35th Anniversary

Review: Broadway Danny Rose 35th Anniversary

I’ve said it before and, for the benefit of the word count, I’ll say it again. Woody Allen films are best when he both directs and stars. That is a hill I am willing to die on, and, sure, he has his outliers like September and Radio Days, but nothing will beat his wry commentary […]

Review: It: Chapter 2

Review: It: Chapter 2

It: Chapter Two picks up right where the miserably mediocre remake left us, only twenty-seven years have passed and Finn Wolfhard has morphed into Bill Hader. Sequels can be notoriously tedious, and even after the dull presentation of the first, my head was held high in what could potentially be a thoroughly enjoyable horror that […]

Review: Midnight Cowboy 50th Anniversary

Review: Midnight Cowboy 50th Anniversary

A pursuit of a steady job in The Big Apple sounds extremely difficult and near impossible. But for arrogantly confident cowboy Joe Buck (Jon Voight), it would seem that these difficulties have no impact on him. For much of the running time of Midnight Cowboy, it would seem that his story is one of survival, rather than […]

Review – Shoplifters

Review – Shoplifters

The work of director Hirokazu Kore-eda is always a welcome and enjoyable experience. After how much I enjoyed Like Father, Like Son, I thought it would only make sense to watch through his most popular piece of work, the Academy Award nominated Shoplifters. A film held in truly high regard considering its realism and desperation, its characters slowly spiralling […]

Review: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid 50th Anniversary

Review: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid 50th Anniversary

Although I’ve not seen enough of his movies to confirm this, I truly think Robert Redford is one of the most consistently dependable actors to have ever worked in Hollywood. His swan song leading role in The Old Man and His Gun had me interested in checking out the rest of his filmography, and where […]

Review: How to Get Ahead in Advertising 30th Anniversary

Review: How to Get Ahead in Advertising 30th Anniversary

For those that haven’t the slightest clue who Richard E. Grant is, and know nothing of the immense talent he possesses, How to Get Ahead in Advertising will serve as an ominous and eerie watch that will provide an unsettling hour and a half. But for those that know of Grant’s capabilities and incredible talent to submerge […]

Review: Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood

Review: Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood

It’s quite the spectacle that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is the first Quentin Tarantino feature I have witnessed on the big cinema screen. But spectacle shouldn’t really relay any added bonuses for his latest feature. Set (obviously) in Hollywood, the latest Tarantino piece sees Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio as a dynamic duo that I […]

Review: The Last Black Man in San Francisco

I sometimes miss the home I used to live in, as well as experiencing the nostalgic desire to reclaim the days of my childhood. But trying to reclaim the house by painting the window panes isn’t what I’d do to recall those days, and The Last Black Man in San Fransisco has such a peculiar […]
