Review: Halloween

Review: Halloween

Having not seen John Carpenter’s rendition of Halloween, it felt a bit silly to dive into a reboot sequel series that I’d had little interest for. Even now I’m struggling to think of my reasoning for watching David Gordon Green’s abysmal take on the renowned slasher classic.  Perhaps the main problem of all is the pacing […]

Review: The Children Act

Review: The Children Act

Drama movies offer up one of the largest varieties of quality the film industry has ever seen. Sometimes we’ll see all-time greats such as 12 Angry Men, The Shawshank Redemption or Whiplash. Other times, we may have to sit through middle of the road mundanities like The Children Act, a harrowingly mismatched and dull movie starring Emma Thompson and Stanley […]

Avengers Endgame: An alternate take!

Avengers Endgame: An alternate take!

What more can be talked of about Endgame that hasn’t already been said? I guess nobody has called it contrived fan service, pandering to obsessive fans that acclaimed it the day it was announced. Because that is, in a nutshell, what Endgame was tasked with doing. Wrapping up ten years’ worth of storylines is no small feat, but with the promising set […]

Review: Sonic The Hedgehog Trailer (2019)

Review: Sonic The Hedgehog Trailer (2019)

Based on the global blockbuster game, Sonic The Hedgehog is set to be released on the 8th November 2019, being one of the most anticipated movies of the year. Our favorite childhood character hits our screens with his adorable facial features and green eyes. However, does this represent the speedy hedgehog we all know and […]

Review: Cold War

Review: Cold War

“Robbery” is the word I would use for Cold War’s loss at the Oscars earlier this year. Bested by Roma in both Foreign Film and Directing categories, Pawel Pawlikowski was robbed of celebrating his success with the Hollywood elites. I suppose that does add some strange level of ambiguity and interest to Cold War, which is as dark as its […]

Review: Dragged Across Concrete

Review: Dragged Across Concrete

The dramatic return of Mel Gibson since 2011’s The Beaver has offered up some of his greatest work; meanwhile, Vince Vaughn’s sudden resurgence as a dramatic actor has offered similar results. When thinking of great movie pairs, the mind may wander to Abbot and Costello, Carrey and Daniels or even Pitt and Freeman. But would you ever […]

Review: Long Shot

Review: Long Shot

I’m a hopeless romantic. It’s always been one of my greatest strengths, and yet one of my greatest weaknesses. Romantic Comedies always stand a better chance of sating me because I’m unsatisfied with my life – it’s been that way since I was 12. So when I was given the option to watch the Seth […]

Review: Guava Island

Review: Guava Island

If you’ve ever seen or heard of Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover) and his music, you’ve already seen a good chunk of Guava Island, his latest project. Personally, I’m not a fan of his music: I appreciate the cultural relevance of it, but my taste in music is just tonally different to Gambino and his outputs. That’s fine […]

Review: Three Colours: Red – 25th Anniversary

Review: Three Colours: Red – 25th Anniversary

The final piece of the puzzle, Three Colours: Red is the round-off of a tumultuous and incredulous series that has introduced me to the work of Krzysztof Kieslowski, a superb director. Three Colours: Red is considered to be the best in the series, yet for some reason it feels like the weakest of all for me.   Perhaps it’s because I watched […]

Review: Three Colours: White – 25th Anniversary

Review: Three Colours: White – 25th Anniversary

After the inspired events of Three Colours: Blue, it could only go downhill for the second and third instalments of the Three Colours Trilogy. Granted, as the first in the series was a close masterpiece, the second in the series, White, had its work cut out for it. Contained within a completely different location, and only loosely connected to the […]
