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...

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...

Robin Hood

DI: It’s a 2018 re-imagining of Robin Hood starring Taron Egerton (Kingsman). The trailer promises a sexier version of our beloved thief and I’m glad to see that there were no signs of men in tight tights (as much as I enjoyed the song that goes with this imagery). From the very start, the film overturns yo...

Ant-Man and The Wasp – Get it for the Marvel geek in your life

I didn’t actually get to see Ant-Man and the Wasp at the cinema, so I was very excited to get my hands on a 4K copy to review! For a run-down of what we thought of the movie itself, head here! I (like our reviewer Ben) absolutely loved the movie and Ant-Man is also my favourite Marvel super-hero…...

The Girl in the Spider’s Web

“After all, Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels…”. A fitting quote to open my review of Fede Alvarez’s The Girl in the Spider’s Web. In one of the opening scenes of this action/thriller/drama from the director of the brilliantly violent Evil Dead r...
