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...

Meh

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...

Meh

The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One

Now that I’ve seen the Osiris Child, I think I understand why adults would get so frustrated when I didn’t do the best I could at school. This movie had so much potential. Perhaps I went into it with too many expectations, perhaps I left it too long before watching it, raising my hopes. Whatever it was, I t...

Terminator 2: Judgement Day

Terminator was born from a nightmare. In 1981, James Cameron was in Italy working on the production of Piranha II: The Spawning (“finest flying killer fish horror/comedy ever made”) and was running a bad fever. That night, in what was no doubt a troubled sleep, he dreamt that a metallic torso was dragging i...

Fashion meets Fantasy in “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets”

Let’s just call it Valerian. Man, this title is a mouthful. I kept calling it “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Somethings”. Title aside, it has Luc Besson at the helm. If Christopher Nolan is the bad boy, then Besson is the rock star of directors in my eyes. With his typical style of f...

Great

Atomic Blonde

I never thought I would enjoy a movie that’s essentially about a woman beating a whole bunch of men to death quite so much. Set in Berlin in 1989, Atomic Blonde is an action thriller that proves a woman can quite deftly step into James Bond’s shoes. There’s big 80’s hits from Queen, Depeche Mode and Goldfin...

Dunkirk

Look, straight off the bat, this is another Christopher Nolan slam dunk. He’s one of the most reliable directors out there. When I first heard he was taking on a World War 2 film, I was like, this is guaranteed gold. The twist however is that it’s not a moment of glory, the battle of Dunkirk was a tough los...
