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 ...

Sausage Party Movie Review
It is so surprisingly crude, crass, creative, outrageous and funny, it is literally like nothing you have ever experienced before.

The story is set in a ...
Ghostbusters Movie Review
So, naturally, my expectations for this reboot(?) were not high. I was hoping for something fun but not necessarily mind blowing and this is pretty much what Ghostbusters 2016 is.
The strength of the new Ghostbusters is in its principal female cast - Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. The women have great chemistry; they form a funny and sassy team and this experiment to flip the gender of the principals is largely successful. It's certainly a better idea ...
The Martian Movie Review
It is equal parts thriller and scientific exploration and focuses on the human resolve to rise to the occasion and survive despite all the odds. Matt Damon is fantastic as the hyper intelligent astronaut that due to circumstance gets left behind on an aborted manned mission on Mars.
His approach to survival is based around his scientific knowledge and raw will to live but it is tempered by irreverence towards his circumstance and to the authority figures that he has to interface with. ...
Bridesmaids Movie Review
Directed by TV actor/director Paul Feig and produced in part by Judd Apatow, Bridesmaids tries to deliver a raucous ride and succeeds for the most part. The cast is excellent and building a film around Kristen Wiig (who is also one of the film’s writers) is never a bad thing as she is a comic heavyweight, it’s just that it’s not always believable seeing women act as stupid and self-involved as men.
This out of character activity leads to some very funny moments but a lot of the ...
