FILM REVIEW

The Marvels

As forgettable and disposable as most of the other projects being churned out right now by MCU.

FILM REVIEW

The Killer

Admirable and interesting but leaves you feeling cold.

FILM REVIEW

Saw X

A good time for fans of the franchise.

FILM REVIEW

Expend4bles

Fails to live up to the original premise of the franchise.

FILM REVIEW

The Equalizer 3

Not the perfectly positioned punch to the gut that the first film was.

FILM REVIEW

Dumb Money

Its energy and tension makes it just about understandable and enjoyable.

FILM REVIEW

Theater Camp

A clear love for everything theatre - and funny to boot.

FILM REVIEW

Strays

Takes what is traditionally a family-friendly concept and stuffs it with risqué jokes.

FILM REVIEW

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem

A decent launchpad for this version of the Turtles.

FILM REVIEW

Elemental

An under-the-radar release from Pixar, but deservedly so?

FILM REVIEW

Barbie

A very humorous examination of the Barbie brand that should entertain Barbie-lovers and Barbie-haters alike.

FILM REVIEW

Oppenheimer

A great film sandwiched in-between Christopher Nolan's usual pretensions.

FILM REVIEW

Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One

Everything you could want in a summer action blockbuster.

FILM REVIEW

Joy Ride

You may be surprised at how much you end up caring about these characters.

FILM REVIEW

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny

Ford is still a likeable lead, but the depressing direction his character takes and the overabundance of special effects just results in this feeling like a generic action movie.

FILM REVIEW

No Hard Feelings

A refreshing throwback to the gross-out ranch-coms of the '90s and '00s.

FILM REVIEW

The Flash

A rushed film in a dying franchise with production issues galore.

FILM REVIEW

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

An incomplete and largely unsatisfying offering.

FILM REVIEW

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Funny, exciting and heartbreaking, all in equal measure, this is an emotionally satisfying send-off.

FILM REVIEW

John Wick: Chapter 4. 8 May 2023

When the action’s happening, it’s a lot of ridiculous, hyper-real fun. Beyond that, it offers a thin story and little else of substance.

FILM REVIEW

Evil Dead Rising. 2 May 2023

Its lack of familial empathy aside, Evil Dead Rise is impressive and admirable for its ingenuity and its exercise in the macabre.

FILM REVIEW

Renfield. 27 April 2023

A fun spin on the classic tale, Renfield unfortunately shows most of its cards in the trailer, which after seeing you will be savvy to most of the film’s originality: Renfield is in a toxic relationship with Dracula and wants out.

FILM REVIEW

Air. 21 April 2023

The corporate journey of how a shoe got made doesn’t exactly sound like ripe material for a film, but Air manages to make the journey interesting and engaging.

FILM REVIEW

The Super Mario Bros. Movie. 13 April 2023

At its best, The Super Mario Bros. Movie is an adaptation of the video game franchise that fans have been waiting decades for; at its worst, it’s just a lot of simplistic, nostalgia-fuelled fun.

FILM REVIEW

Infinity Pool. 5 April 2023

This is just a film that is weird for the sake of being weird.

FILM REVIEW

Shazam! Fury of the Gods

There is enough charm and humour from its cast to make this sequel a fun enough time, even if it does overstay its welcome.

FILM REVIEW

Pearl. 29 March 2023

Mia Goth’s stunningly disturbed performance and the careful craftsmanship of director Ti West make Pearl a unique and unsettling horror movie that will leave audiences wanting more from this series.

FILM REVIEW

Scream VI. 25 March 2023

Scream VI has everything you expect from this series: Ghostface kills people, albeit more gruesomely than ever before, and characters give meta-commentary on the horror genre.

Scream.jpg

REVIEW

Creed III. 9 March 2023

Creed III’s engaging story and the main character’s dynamic with Majors’ imposing villain make this another satisfying entry in this knockout franchise.

REVIEW

Cocaine Bear. 2 March 2023

Unbelievably based on true events, the film certainly provides what its title promises, but does it live up to its potential?

Cocaine Bear.jpg

REVIEW

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. 26 Feb 2023

It’s another Marvel film that won’t leave a lasting impact, but Jonathan Majors’s sinister villain shows promise for what Phase Five has in store, as long as expectations are kept modest.

Ant man.jpg

REVIEW

The Whale. 16 Feb 2023

Boasting an ever-growing list of award nominations and a comeback performance that everyone is rooting for, Darren Aronofsky’s The Whale is seemingly the film to watch out for this year.

The Whale.jpg

REVIEW

Knock at the Cabin. 11 Feb 2023

A winning premise for sure, Knock at the Cabin unfortunately does not follow through on its big ideas. As well-paced and tense as the beginning was, making this one of Shyamalan’s most enjoyable films for a while at least, the end leaves a questionable taste in the mouth.

REVIEW

Babylon. 4 Feb 2023

If excess were a film, it would be Damien Chazelle’s Babylon. Massively budgeted and heavily marketed, seemingly no one has been to see it and it is now considered to be a box office disappointment. Rightly so? Or is Babylon one of the year’s hidden gems?

REVIEW

M3GAN. 23 Jan 2023

A relevant horror movie for modern movie-goers, M3GAN has lots to say about the dangers of advanced artificial intelligence as well as kids’ addiction to technology, as each scenario involving the plaything becomes more and more horrific.
