Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Movie Review
There is sadness in both remembrance and storyline but the emotional content feels respectful and expansive. Introducing an entirely new race of people and having them be both friend and foe helps to defy expectations.
This is far and away one of the most character-driven Marvel films and it challenges the audience with a thoughtful but somewhat leisurely first few reels. When it kicks into gear, there are some well-paced and expertly executed action sequences.

Uncharted Movie Review
If this mirrors the action of actually playing the video game, then this approach makes a little more sense. As it is the film’s main momentum is built around the on-screen chemistry of its two male leads, Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg. Wahlberg plays Victor Sullivan a self-centred veteran fortune hunter and Holland’s Nathan Drake is the starry-eyed newbie.
The two main female characters played by Tati Gabrielle and Sophia Ali are not given that much to do but ...
Sing 2 Movie Review
Set in the world of the theatre, both big and small we get to know the crazy menagerie of animated animals that make up the cast of a work put on by Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey). A talent scout Suki (Chelsea Peretti) who works for super promotor Jimmy Crystal (Bobby Cannavale) sees the production and is unimpressed. This sets Buster on a path to eventually putting the musical on in the big smoke. A thinly disguised Las Vegas-like town called Redshore City.
British Film Festival – The Duke Movie Review
The film starts when his protest against the TV levee that the Poms inflicted back in the sixties lands him in jail where he does time. Broadbent is perfectly cast as the heart of gold Bunton as is the always impeccable Helen Mirren as his long-suffering wife Dorothy. His activities escalate until he is accused of stealing a portrait of the Duke of Wellington by the Spanish painter Goya.
Getting the components correct for a true feel-good experience is not an easy ...
British Film Festival – The War Below Movie Review
The story is built around the actions of William Hawkin (Sam Hazeldine) a family man and miner rejected for active duty due to the early onset of miner’s lung. His shame at not being able to serve drives him and his men to extraordinary lengths in the undertaking. There is also a critical look at the military’s penchant for staid and possessive thought in disregarding these non enlisted men's heroics.
Lacking the budget for big set pieces and special effects ...
Jungle Cruise Movie Review
With previous film adaptations like the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, the park ride only provides a mere suggestion of storyline and here they have taken it to the extremes. It has given Mr. Johnson the chance to really ham it up and Ms. Blunt an opportunity to be one badass señorita. Their interpersonal relationship is played mostly for laughs.
The storyline revolves around a secret flower pedal that could help save mankind from illness and a curse that ...
The Little Things Movie Review
Denzel Washington, Rami Malek, and Jared Leto head an impressive cast, and the three play to their established strengths. Denzel is the stoic yet intense one, Rami delivers the emotion with a minimalist flair and Leto is his usual super creepy self. One wonders what dead animals he sent to the Big D and Rami this time out.
The story involves an uncaught serial killer in the Los Angeles area and the victims that have been created amongst the living and the dead. ...

German Film Festival – 25KM/H Movie Review
This film lays out a well trodden road to follow but that doesn’t prevent it from being very entertaining. It’s filled with humour, pathos and ultimately the bonds of brotherly love. The soundtrack is filled with great songs by T-Rex, The Cure, Yo La Tengo, Sufjan Stevens as well as others and even though the film is spoken in German (with English subtitles) it is extremely accessible.
This is the kind of film that will be an audience hit as it provides all the components of a good ...
