Review: Beautiful Boy

Review: Beautiful Boy

Oscar snubs are one thing, but the sheer audacity of the Academy is obvious when you realise Timothée Chalamet and Steve Carell went without Oscar nominations this year. While Beautiful Boy may not be the best remembered film of the year, it’s certainly a strong enough movie to warrant a bit more praise from critics and fans alike.   By far […]

Review: Blindspotting

Review: Blindspotting

I hate to assert that some movies are more important than others. It feels like I’m devaluing certain genres in favour of others. But that being said, Blindspotting is an important movie, and it’s not just because of its jabs at social constructs and modern-day movements, but also because it’s an extremely solid movie.   The second feature-length from director Carlos Lopez […]

PREVIEW: Avengers: Endgame #2

PREVIEW: Avengers: Endgame #2

A new trailer has landed and it’s time for one more (hopefully the last) trailer breakdown. It’s a shame we won’t hear Robert Downey Jr. shout “Get lost, Squidward” one last time. The trailer opens with a black and white shot of Downey Jr’s first scene as the legendary icon that is – Iron Man. […]

Review: Spider-Man 2 (15th Anniversary)

Review: Spider-Man 2 (15th Anniversary)

Often cited as one of the superhero genre’s greats, Spider-Man 2 turns fifteen years old this year. Does anybody else feel old all of a sudden?  Perhaps Raimi’s most well known film that doesn’t have Bruce Campbell in the lead role, I thought it was high time to take a trip back into the past […]

Review: Ready Player One (Ewan Gleadow and Ryan Easby)

Review: Ready Player One (Ewan Gleadow and Ryan Easby)

Ewan Gleadow’s Review For whatever reason, I had very high hopes for Spielberg’s latest, Ready Player One. Video game movies or movies about video games never work, they just don’t. So, when you’ve got a movie featuring prominent video game characters, popular movie references and a whole host of other pop culture variety, it’s a […]

Review: Venom

View this post on Instagram Tomorrow. #Venom A post shared by Venom (@venommovie) on Feb 7, 2018 at 8:59am PST You know, I really wanted to like Venom. I really did. I thought surely it couldn’t be as bad as the reviews suggested. Surely it couldn’t possibly be THAT bad, right? Turns out I was […]

Review: Life of Brian 40th Anniversary

Review: Life of Brian 40th Anniversary

  Forty years ago, the Monty Python troupe returned for another big screen outing. Controversy, budgeting problems and George Harrison were all factors in the production and release of the movie, and made it all the more legendary. Considered by some to be blasphemy, by others a masterpiece, how does Monty Python’s Life of Brian hold up […]

The Lego Movie 2 – a second opinion

The Lego Movie 2 – a second opinion

Director Mike Mitchell has yet to make a solid movie. From the man that directed Sky High, Shrek: Forever After and Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo comes a sequel to one of the most promising franchises of all. Since the introduction of The Lego Movie, we’ve had two more outings with the excellent The Lego Batman Movie and the apparently dreadful LEGO Ninjago Movie. So how does […]

Cold Pursuit Review – a third opinion

Cold Pursuit Review – a third opinion

Liam Neeson has always been able to provide audiences with fairly strong performances, regardless of what style of movie he’s making. His action movie outputs are something I’m not well versed in, but nonetheless was a sub-genre I had convinced myself was worth checking out. But after the limited output provided by Cold Pursuit, I’m […]

A Second Opinion: Johnny English Strikes Again

A Second Opinion: Johnny English Strikes Again

I have a complicated relationship with the Johnny English franchise, to say the least. As a kid, I loved them. But as I grew up, and rewatched them, I realised that I wasn’t really a fan of them at all. Perhaps I was watching through the eyes of a child at the time, or perhaps […]
