Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn Movie Review

Never taking itself too seriously, it fires off a lot of bursts of energy and then moves on quickly regardless of their level of impact. In this way, it buries those ineffective moments before they do too much harm to the forward momentum. The wise cracking bad guy has a long and successful history in film and turning that tradition around into a wise cracking bad girl is artfully accomplished.   //   Robbie is her usual magnetic self and even with the bleached white ...

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Movie Review

It pulls out all the stops in its effort to entertain and to bring the overriding story arc to a popular conclusion, this includes surprise cameos and events that have been on the cards for quite a while now. It provides almost too much information upon first view and will certainly divide the uber fan as few franchises have such vested followers.   //   Even with a long running time of 141 minutes, there is little down time. The action is relentless as these characters ...

Christopher Robin Movie Review

Now weather those lessons had any longterm positive effect or not, they did provide a lot of feel good moments. Christopher Robin’s lesson is a simple one but it’s told in such a charming and childlike way that it can’t help but draw you in and give you a case of those old time warm and fuzzies.   //   Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) has left his childhood dreams and fantasies far behind him after serving in World War II and has become a workaholic. The neglect ...

T2 Trainspotting Movie Review

The main players that lived through the first film are all back and Renton, Sick Boy, Spud and Begbie are as dysfunctional as ever. The story set twenty years later borrows heavily from the novels Trainspotting and Porno. Boyle’s technique of injecting scenes from the original work gives T2 a strong and believable link to the past. This continuity does author Irvine Welsh proud.   //   The story revolves around Renton (Ewan McGregor) returning to his old stomping ...

First there was an opportunity….then there was a betrayal. Twenty years have gone by. Much has changed but just as much remains the same.

Other old friends are waiting too: sorry, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, diamorphine, self-destruction ...
