Movie Review: I Lost My Body

Movie Review: I Lost My Body

As a detached hand roams the streets in search of its owner, I Lost My Body starts to blend its unique charms with its ardent animation. Netflix’s support for director Jérémy Clapin and the talented animators behind him is a reassuring gamble. A streaming titan still ready to take risks and reap the rewards of doing so. Unconventional, of course, […]

Movie Review: Crawl

Movie Review: Crawl

Nothing, and I mean nothing, is scarier than a crocodile. Or an alligator. Whichever one is present in Crawl. My point is that having these scaled reptiles swanning around your flooded home just isn’t an ideal scenario. I know it, you know it, and so does director Alexandre Aja, who brings us this latest horror film […]

Movie Review: Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions

Movie Review: Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions

There’s a real argument to make against the existence of Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions. An album should convey its messages on the tracks, all the best songs manage to do so. To make a documentary that looks to dissect the songs just in case someone missed the memo or message, seems a tad redundant. Folklore: […]

Movie Review: Emma

Movie Review: Emma

Oh, good, a Jane Austen adaptation. I don’t do as much reading these days, not as much as I should anyway, but the period pieces Austen provided in her long and varied career are books I have no interest in. On the whole, I don’t really find myself all that drawn to period pieces, but […]

Movie Review: Togo

Movie Review: Togo

Always excited to view what flavour of lime green vomit Disney are going to offer us, Disney+ has streamlined this content to somewhere out of my reach. Togo has its appeals, surprisingly. Willem Dafoe can sell us any form of nonsense he wants, and this latest pairing of man and dog appears to have made the […]

Movie Review: Frozen II

Movie Review: Frozen II

Icy tundra and horrid caricatures of Disneyfied victims congeal into yet another messy slog. Catching up on the scraps of last year before it’s too late, Frozen II is a film that, regardless of its critical reception, was sure to make boatloads of cash. A key case study in just how fundamentally flawed cinema and its audiences are right […]

Movie Review: Western Stars

Movie Review: Western Stars

As we move into an era of autotuned nonsense and vague semblances of political-fuelled rap, it’s nice to see a man can still put an album out with a horse on the cover. That bastion of the American legacy will never die. No matter how often the collective masses stomp the country and western genres […]

Movie Review: Let Them All Talk

Movie Review: Let Them All Talk

Improvised craft walks a bold line of quality. Living or dying on how these performers react or blend with sudden changes in conversation, topic, or tone, Let Them All Talk is a somewhat spontaneous dramedy recounting the life of a famous author as she clashes and considers family, friends, and failings. To push these items to the side and […]

Movie Review: Long Shot

Movie Review: Long Shot

Funny man and director Jonathan Levine teams up with man and actor Seth Rogen in Long Shot. Note the lack of prefix for Rogen, that’s what an A-Level in English Language will do to you. Not entirely taken away by his charms and comedic chops, his recent projects are trying tremendously hard to sell Rogen as leading […]

Movie Review: See You Yesterday

Movie Review: See You Yesterday

Trust in conglomerates. Netflix is making content. Don’t question the quality. Why question the quality when there are moving images on the screen? Good enough for some. See You Yesterday is a film. That’s where the niceties stop. A film of mere components, nothing assembled. The fill in your blank style to this nonsense is part and […]
