Could do without

Guns Akimbo

If you really hate the male genitalia then this is the movie for you! Also, trolls. A cautionary tale for the online trolling. That’s what Miles would tell you. In Guns Akimbo, Daniel Radcliffe plays a wimpy game developer who likes dabbling in online trolling. But one day, he trolled the wrong… Troll. And ...

Great

Charlie’s Angels (Blu-Ray)

So 2019’s Charlie’s Angels didn’t fare so well under the critics’ spotlight. Some called it mediocre, thoughtless and just plain bad. But I, for one, LOVED it. In fact, I’m probably going to cop a lot of flack for saying this, but hell it’s true. I’m not ashamed. It...

Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn

Saskia – The dream review team is back together!  Ashton Brown as: Reviewer who has seen Suicide Squad – thought he liked it at the time of viewing as a brainless popcorn flick but as time went on realised how terrible it was –  but is still pumped for Birds of Prey. Saskia as: Review...

Bad Boys For Life

You spin my head right round, right round!” The Bad Boys are back in 2020 with enough sweeping 360° shots to give you vertigo. Twenty five years since the original Bad Boys, Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) and Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) return a bit older and maybe a bit wiser. Having been in the game for so...

1917

This movie I went into with fresh eyes. I watched one trailer and I knew 1917 was for me. So I never watched another. I went in with just one question, will it compare will it compete, with Dunkirk. It’s the height of the First World War and we immediately join two friends on a mission. An insanely importan...

The Gentlemen: More Fun than Should be Allowed

So here’s me trying to convince my friend to come see The Gentlemen with me. I send him the trailer link accompanied by this message, “I love this director but I honestly, I can’t understand too much of the plot.” Friend writes back. “Oh wow, that IS my type of movie.” Th...

Tim’s Star Wars Countdown #6 – A Long Time Ago…

One of my earliest memories is watching A New Hope in Papakura with my family around 1995 or 1996. I would have been 4 at the oldest and can only remember a few snippets from the film but it still remains in the primeval pockets of my earliest memories and impressions. A New Hope, originally just called ‘St...

Tim’s Star Wars Countdown #5 – One Rogue Solo

When it was revealed in 2012 that Disney had bought Star Wars and were planning on making a new trilogy, the thought that went through my head, as a life-long fanboy, was ‘do we really need this?’ Then all the news and previews of The Force Awakens looked great. Shortly after, Disney started tal...

Tim’s Star Wars Countdown #4 – Calm Down Anakin

I’m gonna come out and say it: I like the prequels. I know they have their bad points but it’s been fourteen years since Revenge of the Sith and twenty years since the Phantom Menace; I think we’ve spent enough time complaining. I can remember playing Star Wars with my friends in 1999 at primary school. I k...

Charlie’s Angels

Was 11 year old Saskia a fan of Charlie’s Angels (2000)? YES. Was 30 year old Saskia a fan of Charlie’s Angels (2019)? YES. Has my taste in movies adapted and matured over the years? I LIKE TO THINK SO. Just like 2000 Charlie’s Angels was made for it’s time (possibly the most 2000ish...

Good

Terminator: Dark Fate

I have completed a significant experiment. And like any good science madman I shortcutted official approval, but I was unwilling to place anyone else in jeopardy. So when I called for volunteers for this great undertaking, only my right arm knew what to do. I lay myself in the petri dish of movie-watching s...

Spider-Man: Far From Home – to take home

When I agreed to review Far From Home I still hadn’t actually seen Homecoming. So I quickly watched that the night before Far From Home arrived at my door. I really enjoyed Homecoming for the most part and I was excited to finally sit down and get into it’s supposedly much better sequel! You can...
