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 ...

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 ...

Despicable Me 3 Movie Review

Gru (Steve Carell) has settled into domestic bliss with Lucy (Kristen Wiig) and the girls but through circumstance has lost his job. That sting is eased by the discovery of a previously unknown brother Dru (Steve Carell doing double duty). The two unite and attempt to carry on with the family tradition. That tradition, being bad. Now that Gru is flying the straight and narrow, the humour resides in him being pulled back into a life of evil lite. Being almost unlimited in creating ...

Spider-man: Homecoming Movie Review

So with that in mind, it’s great to see Marvel relax the reins on Spider-man: Homecoming a bit and tell a story more character driven than special effects driven. The film’s lighthearted touch with an emphasis on humour makes it much more accessible than some of the recent overly serious Superhero films. It easily lives in the MU while comfortably standing alone. It even features a crazy credit at the very end of the film that sells laughs instead of product.   //   ...

Cars 3 Movie Review

The use of the late actor’s sound bites from previous films is seamlessly integrated into the new edition. It shows a love and respect for that titan of the big screen that feels real. The film's message of dealing with the advancement of technology and feeling left behind by it is an interesting one given the context.   //   As always the animation looks fantastic and thankfully stays squarely in the animated world and resists the need to be photo realistic. It’s a ...
