Waste of time

Hellboy (2019)

You know, I got the fears just as I was driving to watch this. It just suddenly dawned on me. I absolutely love the original Hellboy movies, so how could this one possibly compete? What am I doing?! It can’t be made better, can it? But then maybe it’ll be on par, yes maybe. You can’t stuff a movie like this...

Shazam!

Already being a bit of a Zachary Levi fan-girl, I was fairly confident It wouldn’t take much for me to want to join the #Shazamily. See? It’s too late for me! RUUUUUUNNNN. However, the greatness of Shazam! definitely doesn’t rest purely on his shoulders – he has an incredible cast an...

Captain Marvel

I’m not a huge Superhero movie fan. I enjoy watching them, for the most part, but generally I can take them or leave them. Steph who came to watch Captain Marvel with me, just doesn’t really watch them at all. However, we were both very excited to see a female taking on the role of one of the mo...

Ghost in the Shell – Double Features

If you liked the 2017 Scarlet Johansson-led live action adaptation, or anything futuristic and cyberpunk in general, then there’s a good chance you may enjoy the original Ghost in the Shell anime movie and its sequel Innocence just as much, or more. Understandably, there will always be those who would prefe...

Office Uprising

The zombie film industry has certainly had its fair share of horror/comedy offerings. When done correctly, this mix of black comedy soars and we find ourselves crying with laughter and horror as ordinary people deal with the extraordinary situation of the living dead. Shaun of the Dead is arguably the Godfa...

Great

Aquaman

Aquaman was visually stunning. I was quite skeptical on how they were going to do the underwater scenes – but I was impressed. The costumes were vivid and the creatures of the deep were breathtaking. If you don’t know it yet, this movie is an origin story. I knew nothing about Aquaman except for what ...

Bumblebee: Did we need another Transformers movie? Yes we did.

I’m a Transformers pleb. But I really shouldn’t be. I mean, I grew up with the cartoons, played with the toys and have sat through all the recent movies. And yet, somehow I haven’t absorbed very much beyond the fact that there are Autobots and Decepticons and for some reason, they just don...

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – Ashton’s Thoughts

Animation has often put adults off from even watching certain films and television shows. I remember the fact that my mum always refused to watch The Simpsons because it was “a cartoon” and the difficulty I have in trying to explain the exceptional Bojack Horseman to more discerning adults. Often when peopl...

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – Sarah’s Thoughts

By now, everyone is pretty familiar with the Peter Parker turned Spider-Man story line. Toby Maguire portrayed a great version of the geeky photographer Peter Parker in Spider-Man (2002), Andrew Garfield brings the cheeky badass we expect of Spider-Man to The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), and Tom Holland actua...
