The Mule Movie Review

Earl Stone (Eastwood) is a down on his luck horticulturist whose business and passion has been ruined by changing times and the Internet. He becomes a drug runner out of necessity but grows to enjoy the money and the thrill. Eastwood looks every wrinkle the part and shuffles his way through the performance in a most engaging way.   //   Poster art to the contrary, the cast is filled with heavyweights like Bradley Cooper and Michael Peña as DEA agents, Dianne Wiest as ...

Final Score and Billionaire Boys Club DVD Reviews

Final Score You know that any action film built around the big guns of Dave Bautista (Drax from Guardians Of The Galaxy) is going to feature some extreme physicality and in that respect Final Score certainly delivers. What does surprise is there is also elements of humour and of family values. It’s not all just people getting beat down. The premise is as over the top as the star’s build and involves an entire football stadium (soccer, not American gridiron) being held to ransom. ...

Win a double pass to see The Mule!

Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive. Easy enough, but, unbeknownst to Earl, he’s just signed on as a drug courier for the cartel. He does well—so well, in fact, that his cargo increases exponentially, and Earl is assigned a handler.   //   But he isn’t the only one keeping tabs on Earl; the mysterious new drug mule has also hit the radar ...

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World Movie Review

Most would be familiar by now with the main storyline behind the series, that of the young boy Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) who befriends a dragon and forever changes the way his Viking tribe sees these majestic beasts. The movies have been consistently satisfying from a story telling aspect and each new edition adds that little bit more to their ethos.   //   In this, the last addition, we get to see Hiccup become a man and take over his duties as leader of the tribe (after ...

Florence + The Machine Aussie Tour

Famed for their mesmerising live show, Florence Welch and her band will gear up to unleash a set of songs spanning their previous three albums, and debut brand new songs from the forthcoming fourth studio album, High As Hope, live for Australian audiences. “Florence Welch’s theatricality proves powerful as she performs tracks from new album High as Hope…an appealingly visceral force live”– The Guardian “As she proved at Glastonbury, Florence is a match for anyone on the ...

The Kid Who Would Be King Movie Review

The story has been brought up to date and set in modern times but cleverly succeeds in keeping the old mythology alive. This even includes a very comic take on Merlin the wizard played by two actors, the regal Patrick Stewart playing against type and Angus Imrie, playing him as the school geek extraordinaire. Both versions are very funny.   //   The believe in yourself message is delivered with little subtlety but it is satisfying nonetheless seeing the school nerd Alex ...
