Red Sparrow Movie Review

Jennifer Lawrence delivers her bravest performance yet and adds another outstanding job to her ever expanding resume of excellence.

The way this guilt manifests itself as the story evolves opens quite a few doors for exploration of the world of the living and the dead but it can’t sustain such a poor script.   //   Even the mighty Helen Mirren, try as she might, can’t do much with the wooden marbles she has to spit out. As the cliches pile up, the film relies more and more ...

Game Night Movie Review

It throws so many jokes your way, that even when some fall a bit flat, you know more successful ones are just around the corner. The cast is well chosen and the fresh faced Rachel McAdams and the ever sardonic Jason Bateman have good chemistry together and the always weird and wonderful Jesse Plemons plays the creepy cop next door neighbour perfectly.   //   You can’t tell too much of the story without giving away some of the delicious surprises in store, so the best ...

Inspired by true events at the most haunted house in history. On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits a house that knows no end. Built by heiress Sarah Winchester (Academy Award® winner Helen Mirren) in an incessant twenty-four-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week mania over decades, it stands seven stories tall and contains hundreds of rooms, staircases to nowhere and doors that open into walls.   //   To the outsider it looks like a monstrous ...
