Watch the new trailer for Disney Pixar’s Incredibles 2 – In cinemas 14 June 2018!
Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
Written and directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles,” “Tomorrowland”) and Nicole ...
Watch the new Trailer for Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms – In Cinemas November 2018!

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 ...
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
In some ways, Captain Jack has his swagger back. It’s a silly return to the fun of the first film and doesn’t take itself too serious. Depp charts no new ground but his original idea of channeling Keith Richards and the cartoon skunk Pepe Le Pew still works well, so well in fact that his character has become ubiquitous. Pistol and Boo would be proud.
The cast this time features some fresh new faces, Australian actor Brenton Thwaites as son of Will, Henry ...
Finding Dory Movie Review
Finding Nemo is such a timeless institution in our movie culture - whether you be a child or adult - that a sequel which in large parts rehashes its predecessor is simply a moot exercise.
Finding Dory follows almost identical beats and set ups - a fish searching the open ocean for lost loved ones; encountering frightening denizens of the sea; aided by new found friends; becomes ‘imprisoned’ in an aquarium from which they must escape etc. In fact, every element of Nemo has its ...
The Jungle Book Movie Review
The film also includes some great laughs along with the heavy hits of pathos as you the audience discover the identity of the voice actors. Of particular note are the very funny antics of Bill Murray as Baloo and the Guido humour of Christopher Walken as King Louie. Idris Elba is also especially majestic as the king of the jungle, Shere Khan
The film travels down the well know path of the animated original but adds enough new depth to give it a relevance of its own. It does however ...
Zootopia Movie Review
The film follows Judy, a carrot farmer's daughter who bucks social norms to engage in a career usually reserved for more robust species such as oxen, rhinos and tigers. When her abilities are underestimated by her chief of police, she teams up with city slicker con-fox, Nick, who is similarly socially pigeon-holed in accordance with his species as a sly character who is always up to no good.
The film is a little heavy handed with its anti-bullying, anti-discrimination, social inclusion, ...
Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Movie Review
The franchise is almost universally regarded as having lost it's way with Lucas' prequels (um, Episodes I, II and III) but the truth is the series began running off the rails from the moment Lucas re-branded the first instalment of Star Wars Episode IV. This set in motion two decades of Lucas dicking with his baby, subjecting his movies to so much plastic surgery as to transform them into some kind of CGI-laden Frankenstein's monster. From simple beginnings Lucas had begun complicating Star ...
Inside Out Movie Review
It's no surprise that Disney is promoting Inside Out on the back of Up as (aside from the directorial connection) it is the Pixar film that is most similar to date. Both films employ very adult themes packaged in an easily digestible kiddie format.
The film beautifully visualises the thought processes and memory structures of the human mind, distilling human emotions to five fundamentals - joy, sadness, anger, disgust and fear - and represents these as little people conflicting inside ...
Tomorrowland Movie Review
The story revolves around a parallel universe that is not unlike the hidden world in Ayn Rand’s opus Atlas Shrugged (minus the extreme narcissism). It’s a land where science is let loose to the benefit of mankind. This gives the filmmakers a platform for some very cool wishful technology and also features a lot of fantastic set design artwork.
With a list of participants that includes director Brad Bird (The Incredibles and The Iron Giant), George Clooney and Hugh Laurie, it’s a ...
