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. If that’s not a testament to the impact of Welles’ work and how much of an auteur icon he has become, we don’t know what is. Quite genuinely his final piece of work ever, The […]

Netflix review: Polar

Netflix review: Polar

Reviews for Netflix’s latest original movie, Polar, have been less than positive – yet Mikkelsen’s starring role is more than enough for us to sit through what could possibly be one of the worst […]
