Ocean’s 8 Movie Review

It has its own feel and its own pacing and in a few key moments, it has clever ties with the films that have come before. Also like a good caper, there is that substantial twist at the end that few, it any will have seen coming.   //   While new director Gary Ross (The Hunger Games & Pleasantville) has his own kinetic feel, the influence of Steven Soderbergh (who serves as one of the film’s producers) continues to be strongly felt. The examples of fashion are ...

Thor: Ragnarok Movie Review

This work is the most entertaining Marvel film in many a moon. It’s biggest positive is its engaging sense of humour. It stands out in stark contrast to some of the more serious superhero fare and it’s a very welcome departure. There are even a few uncredited cameos that are a hoot.   //   Hemsey returns as Thor and is joined by a few members of the Marvel Universe that appear on the poster art work and a few that don’t. Highly decorated thespian Cate Blanchett is ...

2016 Oscar Season

Spotlight More of a detective drama than a sole examination of the deeply entrenched evil that the Catholic Church posses in regards to paedophilia, Spotlight is still difficult to watch. See more in Stuart Jamieson’s review here. The Big Short In retelling a moment in time that had a dramatic effect on the entire world, The Big Short succeeds in taking a somewhat complicated story and reducing it to its primary human trait, greed. It also uses hilarious cameos by a surprising group ...

Cinderella Movie Review

Her step-mother and sisters are evil beyond redemption and the prince is handsome and honourable beyond reproach. None of this is unexpected, of course - Disney is as Disney does and it's perfect little girl fodder, complete with doe-eyed innocence and glittery flouncy dresses. And it's all shot with an impossible beauty that can only be achieved on a perfectly lit studio set. Nothing is a surprise - the goodies get their fairy tale ending and the baddies get their just desserts. It's ...
