Fly Me To The Moon Movie Review

Kelly Jones (Johansson) is a marketing and promotional genius from the Big Apple who plays fast and loose with the truth and is perfect for the job. After the tragic loss of the three astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee in a fire that happened during a training exercise, the race to the moon is lagging in popularity and it is Jones who is coerced into helping with lifting those sagging numbers.   //   She runs headlong in the the conservative ways of ...

Maxxxine Movie Review

Cornered in a dark alley by a knife-wielding thug? It is nothing that the gun in her handbag and the stiletto heels to his testicles can’t take care of. Tackling a difficult and highly emotional reading for a film part, nailed it! Even freeing Los Angeles from the grip of fear caused by a certain serial killer? It’s all in a day's work.   //     Made to complement the other editions in the trilogy, it is not a necessity to have seen the others but for those ...

Midnight Oil: The Hardest Line Movie Review

It covers most of the main signposts along the way, events like the overseas sojourns to record some of the earlier albums, The Black Fella White Fella Tour in 87, the anti-Exxon concert on Wall Street, where they brought almost all lunchtime traffic to a halt. They also discuss the events that led to the band going on hiatus and reforming for a world tour almost a decade later. The events that have a political agenda are given prominent attention.   //   This is as you ...

The Bikeriders Movie Review

Many say that this was also the perfect storm that helped to reinforce the toxic male energy that has blighted our society in the decades since. While this may be an oversimplification, it has had an undeniable impact on male behaviour since. As in all things that are created in an environment of excess energies, these clubs even though they started with the best of intentions became corrupted and changed to suit certain individual needs or desires.   //   In this ...

PAKT – No Steps Left To Trace Music Review

This work is filled with groove-heavy goodness and the double disc format allows the time to put it all across. Six-string sorcerer and electronic toys maven Tim Motzer transcends string and wire and adds an amazing amount of different tones. His atmospherics are divine while second guitarist Alex Skolnick just plain gets it on. From clean tone chicken picking to outer edge ripping and all points in between, he is not limited by boundaries at all.   //   Percy Jones is ...

Spanish Film Festival 2024 – The Teacher Who Promised the Sea Movie Review

The film is based on the book Unearthing the Silence: Antoni Benaiges, the master who promises the sea by Francesc Escribano and it is a powerful indictment against unchecked power and conservative thinking. In 1935 Antoni began teaching in a small village in the province of Burgos. His unique (for the time) teaching techniques were not well received nor was his political stance, one that openly opposed Fascism.   //   Loved by all of his students yet loathed by their ...

Inside Out 2 Movie Review

The story is based around a world where our basic emotions are personified by characters that excel in those emotions, so you have Sadness (voiced by Phyllis Smith), Fear (Tony Hale), Disgust (Liza Lapira), Anger (Lewis Black) and Joy (Amy Poehler) who has the hardest job of all reigning in all these potentially destructive emotions. Now it wouldn’t be a relevant story without the addition of some new emotions and characters that mirror our times.   //   Mirroring real ...
