The Mountain Between Us Movie Review

The two leads, Idris Elba and Kate Winslet are both great actors but here their chemistry never really gels.

Elba and Winslet riff off each other at first and it’s these early scenes that are most enjoyable but the film soon falls ...

La La Land Movie Review

The casting pays real dividends as Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are perfectly cast and their on-screen chemistry is palpable. The film is also quite clever in its sometimes non-linear structure and the what ifs? provide the audience with more than one view of the on-screen proceedings. It’s clever in a way that doesn’t draw attention to itself in that look at me kind of way. The story involves living in Los Angeles, being so close to grabbing the brass ring of success and what ...
