Review: Show Dogs

Review: Show Dogs

The era of kid’s movies is dead. Quality and consistency don’t matter when you can slap together Stanley Tucci and Will Arnett, or at least that’s what Show Dogs wants us to believe. Director Raja Gosnell’s putrid outing shows us that the market for kid‘s movies is just what I’d expected Illumination Studios to turn it into. […]

Review: Fahrenheit 11/9

Review: Fahrenheit 11/9

Michael Moore is quite genuinely one of the most prolific and enjoyable documentary makers around. He’s the American Louis Theroux, and that’s no small feat.   I hate to say cliché taglines such as this, but Fahrenheit 11/9 is probably the most important documentary to release in the past few years.

Released six months before I was born, the soundtrack of my youth included Underworld and Iggy Pop, though my teeny, tiny brain wasn’t able to comprehend the complexities of addiction, and the choice to rebel against the world we’re taught to exist in – […]

If I Stay (2014): a movie to help with loss or grief

By Shannon Murphy This movie can turn you into an emotional wreck. As well as being one of the reasons I’m no longer allowed to pick movies in my family, it allows for a more developed connection to characters, as you follow Mia (played by Chloé Grace Moretz who is largely known for roles in […]

Review: The Lego Movie 2

After seeing the first Lego film back in 2014 and being surprised at how good it was, we were worried that the second part would not live up to its predecessor, but we were wrong. The Lego Movie 2 is just as fun as the original, continuing the story from where we left off with […]
