Jumanji: The Next Level Movie Review

The film easily divides into two halves, with the less impactful opening stanza setting up essential the same storyline as the films that have come before but with a minor tweak that doesn’t really pay off. They add two new characters into game play, Eddie (Danny DeVito) and Milo (Danny Glover) and when Eddie is cast into the Dwayne Johnson character, the Rock just can’t do justice to the DeVito voice and his mannerisms.   //   Later in the film when Awkwafina takes ...

The Angry Birds Movie 2 – Movie Review

It starts somewhat conventionally and the first reel takes its time filling you in on the details. From that point on however, it’s an all out effort to zig when you think it will zag. Anarchy is a word that comes to mind. There is even a scene that feels like it could have easily come from the mind of Quentin Tarantino. //   At times it tends to be overly cute and the vibrant colours rival that of a lolly shop but then more often than not if turns convention on its head and ...

The Farewell Movie Review

In the East, it even runs as deep as not telling a loved one the extent of their illness or showing grief at all.

Although Chinese ...
