Review: Isn’t It Romantic

Review: Isn’t It Romantic

Because who wouldn’t want a deconstruction of the romantic comedy genre starring Rebel Wilson? Yes, it seems Netflix has returned to their old, soul-crushing ways of producing and financing mediocre content and then dropping it onto their platform, announcing it a day before it’s released. But that’s a system that works for them. It happened […]

Review: Shirkers

Review: Shirkers

If there’s one medium of film Netflix can get right, it’s documentaries.  Icarus has become a modern classic, as politically relevant as it was upon its release just two years ago. Get Me Roger Stone has followed a similar process also, so it does seem like Netflix have what it takes to make a great documentary feature. Shirkers looks to […]

Review: The Other Side of the Wind

Although having passed away in 1985, Orson Welles is still releasing movies in a manner more frequent than Quentin Tarantino.

Netflix haven’t got the best track record when it comes to original movies, and they don’t seem to be setting that straight anytime soon. Sandra Bullock (Ocean’s 8, […]
