The Colour Purple (Movie) – Review

There are movies in this world that deal with topics and themes that will make people uncomfortable and that’s the whole point. The viewer is meant to feel what the characters feel, and really take stock in a situation, asking themselves how they would react if they were in place

The Exorcist: Believer (Movie) – Review

As is the fashion recently, another modern continuation of a legacy horror series has been ejected from Hollywood’s mid-range thriller factory known as Blumhouse Productions. However, this one brings with it the gravitas of a literal classic of horror cinema, and while it has big shoes to fill, it fits

Blue Beetle (Movie) – Review

The mantle of Blue Beetle is held by three characters, with the first being Dan Garret in Mystery Men Comics #1, published by Fox Feature Syndicate in 1939, then Ted Kord in Captain Atom #83, published by Charlton Comics in 1966, and finally, Jaime Reyes in Infinite Crisis #5, published

Strays (Movie) – Review

Over the years, there have been many examples of “funny talking dog” films. “Strays” is certainly one of those examples, but is it a good one? Well, that depends on your sense of humour, because this is the first “talking animal” movie to receive an R rating in the history

7.5

Asteroid City (Movie) – Review

Every Wes Anderson film feels like that dream you have after you’ve eaten the leftover garlic gnocchi from three days ago; Far from a nightmare, but not quite all the way to “happy”, and there’s an area of imagination that is stained with coffee, dust and childhood heartbreak. We watch

7.5

Meg 2: The Trench (Movie) – Review

In 2018, The Meg debuted in cinemas, featuring a prehistoric megalodon existing in the modern day, terrorising the seas and making its way to a resort. While the Warner Bros. Movie wasn’t well received by critics, it did become a cult favourite among moviegoers who wanted something different, enjoyed that

9

Oppenheimer (Movie) – Review

The notion of telling the story of Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the Atom bomb, in a compelling and equally sombre film would scare away some of the most brilliant minds in Hollywood. Christopher Nolan, however, is widely praised for his achievements in bringing together cinematic brilliance and

8

The Flash (2023) – Review

There was a time when I thought the Flash movie would never make it through its tumultuous off-screen journey. Through thick and thin, Warner Bros have stuck to their goal and pushed through to deliver what may be one of the final entries to the Snyderverse version of the DCU.

Renfield – Review

The horror/comedy duo threat has seen plenty of films over the years to varying degrees of success. A personal favourite of mine was “Dracula: Dead and Loving It,” which made fun of the prince of darkness by disarming his menacing legacy. Enter 2023, and Renfield takes a bite at the

FAST X – Review

Ever since 2001, the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise has been ripping up the streets with their high-octane, adrenaline-pumping, and outrageous action-packed films, which have always gone bigger and wilder with each instalment in the series. Dom Toretto, his family, and the gang are back again for the latest entry, ‘Fast

7

Book Club: The Next Chapter – Review

In 2018, four of Hollywood’s best gals made a lighthearted film about old friends that stayed connected through a book club with a splash of their own shenanigans. Several years on, Universal Pictures has brought them back to see what the next chapter can bring for the long-standing friends. As

8

Evil Dead Rise – Review

Horror films were never quite the same after “The Evil Dead” first hit cinemas back in 1981. Whether intended or not, the blend of horror and uneasy humour started a movement that has spanned three films, a tv series, and a stand-alone reboot in 2013. The latter was driven by

The Super Mario Bros. Movie – Review

Everyone’s favourite plumber is jumping out of the pipes and onto the big screen. While the critically panned 1993 movie ‘Super Mario Bros.’ starring the late great Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo was the brothers’ first time on the silver screen, the 2023 adaptation of the legendary video game franchise

Blue Beetle – Trailer Impressions

Air – Review

Since 1984, Nike’s Air Jordans has been the leading basketball shoe brand, with its maximum comfort improving performance on the court, and its unique design with a very recognisable logo, all based around NBA legend and Hall of Famer, Michael Jordan. Nike wasn’t always the giant sporting brand we know

Shazam! Fury Of The Gods – Review

Zachary Levi returns once again to reprise his unlikely superhero role as Billy Batson, the boy who can turn into Shazam. In the midst of the DCEU facing a potential overhaul, the franchise is continuing in the Zack Snyder-created universe for now, while Warner Bros work on the next era

TILL – Review

To capture the audience’s attention, you need a hook. Usually, “Based on a true story” is enough to gain interest, but when the true story is so affecting and culturally significant that it changes the course of history for an entire country, that should be a flashing billboard to see

Champions – Review

Feel-good stories and sports often go hand in hand when it comes to filmmaking, and ‘Champions’ follows this formula with a comedic spin. Woody Harrelson stars as Marcus, a disgraced basketball coach that is going to need to sharpen his people skills to connect with his new team. Based on

Creed III – Review

Michael B. Jordan has been nothing short of a phenomenon in his acting career and has done the seemingly insurmountable job of taking over where the Rocky Balboa stories have left off. This time though, he will be responsible for what happens in front and behind the camera as he
