I Feel Pretty Movie Review

The film is a maddening journey of comic bullseyes and structural mishaps that strain the interest and believability of the project. Seeing the film in a full cinema on a Sunday afternoon and being one of only four males in the room was only one of the more unusual circumstances. The other being the almost complete lack of laughter from the audience, even in the very funny moments the film provides. You would think that those that arrive to see a Amy Schumer film would be well versed in ...

Truth Or Dare Movie Review

Most of the actors on board have connections to well know TV shows and they often remind you of someone else, look there is a poor man’s version of Kate Hudson or a Kardashian, that type of thing. This has the knock on effect of making it a lot more fun when the meet their maker, and no I don’t mean today’s version of Aaron Spelling.   //   Fans of the shows Pretty Little Liars, Teen Wolf, The Flash and Degrassi: The Next Generation will have fun seeing their fav ...

Isle Of Dogs Movie Review

Returning to the stop-motion animation technique he used so successfully in The Fantastic Mr. Fox had not limited him in any way. In fact just the opposite has taken place as this film is his most imaginative work yet.   //   It’s also so lovely to look at. The beauty is everywhere, the sets are amazing, the storyline is rich and the characters that make up the cast ring emotionally true. Wes even manages a completely satisfying ending, never that easy with a film of ...

Walking Out Movie Review

As a study of this rite of passage, Walking Out is an arduous journey with a huge contrast between the stunning beauty of the winter landscape and the stark human condition after an accident occurs that rips both of their lives apart forever.   //   The winter scenery of Montana plays a pivotal role in the proceedings and shows mother nature to be a very cruel taskmaster. The film tells the tale of both father and son and via flashbacks, father and grandfather. The two ...

A Quiet Place Movie Review

It also feature a screenplay that plants details in such an intelligent way that when things come to fruition, they make much more sense. There are no moments of the oblivious ignorance of illogical plot devices due to lazy writing that plague so many horror films. // The story revolves around new life forms (alien or not, it is never completely explained) that are driven by sounds, so the population now has to live in complete silence.To make even the smallest of sounds is to die a ...

The Death Of Stalin Movie Review

Joseph Stalin had a big title, General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and a big effect on the direction of Russian history during his reign from the mid twenties until his death in 1953 . He was also one of histories greatest mass murderers and when he died he left behind a power vacuum that many were eager to fill and more than willing to do anything to make it happen. // Chief among his potential successors were Georgy Malenkov ...

Early Man Movie Review

The story revolves about the fictional creation of football and being eccentrically British we’re talking about soccer and not the American grid iron sport. The film features mostly a human type cast with a few animals to give it a youthful appeal. However the animals that do frequent the screen add a lot of the film’s laugh out loud humour. // It’s an odd mix of humour and commentary on such adult topics as the privilege of the rich and the social pecking order of the haves ...

A Wrinkle In Time Movie Review

It might be a generational thing as this reviewer is far removed from being a tween but great story telling has the ability to transcend age limitations. There are good things to take from the experience however as Reese Witherspoon is very appealing and funny as one of the major characters and it’s good to see Oprah back on the big screen. It’s also great to see Disney give a chance to a female director on one of its major films, in this case Ava DuVernay (Selma, Middle Of Nowhere). ...

Blockers Movie Review

The parents this time out are the clueless ones and this is played to maximum humour and effect. John Cena is specially funny and unafraid to go to extreme lengths to generate laughs. Their hearts are in the right place but their manic escapades do raise questions about their brain power.   //   The story revolves around a pact the three girls have to lose their virginity at the up coming High School Prom. It’s a testament to the script writers and actor’s abilities ...
