Pacific Rim: Uprising

To be honest, I don’t really think that much needs to be said about Pacific Rim Uprising. It’s a movie about giant robots fighting giant monsters. It’s not Annie Hall or Citizen Kane, it’s stupid and it’s fun and that’s as far as it needs to go really. But let’s talk about it anyway. In the first film, ther...

Ready Player One

If you like playing “spot the pop culture reference”, then don’t look any further. Ready Player One is a veritable homecoming for any geeky child of the 80s to feel they’re back in style. But to go backward in time, we must first go forward. The movie kicks off in the year 2045 where...

Tomb Raider

As soon as Tomb Raider starts, you know it’s going to have a very different flavour to the Angelina Jolie films. You know there aren’t going to be any sexy open-mouthed shower scenes. And you know there won’t be any crash zooms into gun-strapped thighs with suggestive sound effects. And it’s refreshing. Tom...

Red Sparrow

Jennifer Lawrence, spy-vibes and bad russian accents – I was sold from the first trailer.  Uncomfortable sexual content, incest vibes and skin peeling  – things I wasn’t prepared for. Dominika Egorova (Jennifer Lawrence), a prima ballerina who suffers a leg-snapping end to her career, is f...

Black Panther

Diversity isn’t something Hollywood is well known for. The American film industry seems to think diversity in films is a sort of novelty that can be pulled out every now and then when they’re trying to be edgy. It’s getting better, but there is still a long way to go. Black Panther is definitely a step in t...

Maze Runner: The Death Cure

The third and last installment of Maze Runner picks up where the second movie left off. Thomas leads his friends on an attempted rescue mission to save Minho. Continuing from the first two installments, our heroes are relentlessly fighting against their captors, WCKD, to maintain their freedom. If you haven...

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Going into this, my husband and I were musing about The Rock’s recent career in movies that we would never see. “The Rock in yet another remake,” said Husband. ” I guess they needed a stereotypical buff guy,” I replied. I have never been so glad to be wrong about Dwayne Johnson...

Justice League: A 300 million dollar disappointment

Director Zack Snyder took a swing at the latest film instalment of the DC Extended Universe, Justice League. A huge swing because, with an estimated budget of $300 million USD, it’s the second equal most expensive film ever made. Unfortunately it was a swing and a miss, and given the awkward smatterin...

Thor: Ragnarok

I am not a Marvel fangirl. I don’t squeal every time a new film is announced or countdown the days until the films are released. In fact, I was getting a little sick of Marvel superhero movies until along came Guardians of the Galaxy, with it’s new brand of Marvel humour and general vibe, it was...

Blade Runner 2049

I’m fascinated by exploring ideas around what it means to be human and sentient. With the possibility that one day we’ll be able to create true artificial intelligence, there’s a host of moral ambiguities that can be delved into. This is what makes the Blade Runner universe a beautiful sandbox for playing w...

The Lego Ninjago Movie

I’m going to come right out and say it: I’m 23 years old and I LOVED The Lego Movie and The Lego Batman Movie. The former, I watched 4 times by choice. So my hopes were high for The Lego Ninjago Movie. Lego Ninjago stars the voice talent of Jackie Chan (Master Wu), Dave Franco (Master Builder Ll...

Kingsman: The Golden Circle – watch it bruv

Ultraviolence + a dash of smutty humour + a bunch of one liners = Kingsman: The Golden Circle I didn’t know if I’d be willing to jump back into the Kingsman world after the ending of the first one spoiled the fun I’d been having, but I’m SO glad I did! Definitely not a film for the c...
