The Dark Tower Movie Review

If this is tinsel town’s attempt to par down the series of eight books written by Stephen King into a more streamlined presentation, much is lost in transition. It is so thin on character development, that it is almost ghost like. If the intension was to create an on going movie franchise, it is a poor first salvo.   //   In the attempt to not overwhelm the viewer with detail, the filmmakers have relied too much on the audience being familiar with the book series by ...

Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D Movie Review

. The film is filled with both technical flaws, like the motorcycle, young John Connor rides being a four stroke and the sound track blaring the sound of a two stroke (a completely different sounding machine) as well as lapses of logic (why not send the Terminator back earlier than modern day to stop the family line). It’s to the film credit that you just forget how preposterous the whole story line is and just enjoy the spectacle and humour. The humour is of special note as it just gets ...

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets Movie Review

The film starts promisingly with a very clever introduction to its Galaxy wide leanings with a parade of ever more outlandish alien creatures. It brings to mind the Star Wars cafe scenes with all their variety of beings from outer space. The colour palette is also overwhelming, it’s like walking into a lolly shop with all of its over-saturated colours.   //   The film’s premise is pretty straight forward but that’s where the comfort of familiarity ends. The film ...

Atomic Blonde Movie Review

The story revolves around actions set in Berlin during the last dying days of the communist separation of that city. An end that came to fruition in 1989. As is evident in all good period pieces, the fashions and social values of the day are also the stars. The film pulsates with a great eighties soundtrack that adds even more to the feel of the decade the film is set in.   //   Theron as said super spy is impossibly skilled at her job and she plays it as badass as any ...

Dunkirk Movie Review

In this context, he build tension in a masterful way. The film features very little dialogue and Hans Zimmer’s score is a major player in the film’s tone and emotional impact. The tension is fierce and relentless and never loosens its grip throughout the 106 minute running time. The horror of war is never far from view but it isn’t presented in an overly graphic or bloody way. This approach adds even more to the film’s impact because it doesn’t distance the viewer with the off ...

Baby Driver Movie Review

Wright pulls remarkable performances from his entire cast. Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars and Divergent) shows a real star turn as the enigmatic title character and both Jon Hamm and Jamie Foxx really sell the menace as they both play great criminal psychos. Headmaster Kevin Spacey keeps them all together with a solid mix of benevolence and belligerence.   //   Special mention should also be made about the car chase scenes. Without any noticeable computer generated ...
