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...

War for the Planet of the Apes

I’m going to call it early: the Planet of the Apes reboot has left the best until last. War for the Planet of the Apes is the best instalment perhaps since the 1968 original, and you don’t need to have seen any of the other films to catch it in the cinema and love it. In the original, it’s obvious the audie...

Transformers: The Last Knight

You know, it ain’t bad. Back in 2006, I remember seeing the trailer for the first Transformers at the cinema before a screening of Nacho Libre. I went home telling my Mum about it and she gave me a strange look and a patronising “OK…” The following year however, on the way home from the cinema, Mum was ravi...

8 Reasons Why You NEED To See The Live Action Attack On Titan Movies!

Now I’m guessing you’re reading this article for one of three possible reasons: 1. You’re a fan of the manga/anime so you’ve been avoiding the live action films and you’re wondering if I’m going to convince you to give them a go (that is my goal) 2. You’ve seen the ...

The Fly: Ultimate Collection

If you’re reading this, if you’re interested at all, you’re probably already a fan of Cronenberg’s 1986 classic The Fly, starring Jeff Goldblum. Such a classic, that many are unaware that it’s actually a remake of a 1958 movie of the same name. Fewer still have been exposed to the sequels in the 50s and 60s...

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

“They call themselves the Guardians of the Galaxy.” “What a bunch of a-holes.” So yeah, that about sums it up. Of course the ladies-in-charge will never accept a two sentence quote as a review so allow me to elaborate. Normally when I review something, I like to watch the thing I’m reviewing and then start ...

The Mummy

I was excited for two brand names, The Mummy and Tom Cruise, so how could I miss this one on the big screen. A movie with a head start into my good books is rare for me. I really enjoyed the fun adventure of the first one. It was funny and the effects were amazing for the day. The perfect, big stupid movie ...

Wonder Woman

Louise Beuvink and Lucy Noonan went to the New Zealand premiere of Wonder Woman. Lucy is a comic book nerd and Louise is a filthy casual. Here is their review. Lucy: So… that was amazing. I don’t even know where to begin. Louise: I’ll start with a background. Wonder Woman is the first live-action feat...

Colossal

If you want something a bit off-beat, Colossal might meet your needs in this old-school-monster-meet-dysfunctional-people movie. Unemployed and alcoholic Gloria (ANNE HATHAWAY) gets thrown out of boyfriend Tim’s apartment after one too many times of late night partying. In a haze, she returns to her s...

The Fate of the Furious

I enjoyed this movie. Mind you, I am a Fast and the Furious fan.  I haven’t missed a single movie from the franchise. Although I am not a car guru, I appreciate great car races and action (I have a dad and a younger brother that are car junkies). Being the 8th one in the series, they had to add something bi...

Ghost in the Shell (2017)

Do you know what makes you who you are? What makes you human? Is it the heart beating in your chest or your lungs filling and compressing as air rushes in and out of them. It could be argued it’s your brain, but your brain interprets sensory information from your body. If fed entirely different sensory info...

The Great Wall

Come on -Come on now! None of you thought this was gonna be good, right? You just want to know how bad it is… Well, it’s bad. Where on the terrible scale does ‘The Great Wall’, fall? For me the type of bad I categorize this movie into is ‘Bewilderingly Bad”. You can only hope when you go and see a genuinely...
