Game Night

It’s love at first sight when Annie (Rachel McAdams) and Max (Jason Bateman), both extremely competitive game enthusiasts, lock eyes during a pub quiz. The well matched pair settle down into a quiet, suburban life, complete with obligatory regular game nights with a group of like minded friends. When Max’s ...

Lady Bird

Lady Bird is the most positively reviewed film of all time. That is to say it holds the record for the longest unspoiled streak of positive reviews as determined by Rotten Tomatoes, overtaking the last record holder, Toy Story 2. Greta Gerwig’s debut film (she is credited as the sole writer and director) is...

Daddy’s Home 2

At this time of year my wife and I usually search for classic Christmas movies to watch, but at this stage we’ll click wherever the sacred Christmas algorithms direct us. This is how we came across the first Daddy’s Home a couple of weeks ago, completely unaware, then, of how soon humanity would be privileg...

The Disaster Artist

What is art? Can it be defined? These were questions that were asked of us in the first week at film school. Could Hitchcock or Kubrick or Coppola or Scott or Tarantino have produced such glorious masterpieces without the influence of those who came before them? Probably not. Another question that was asked...

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...

Wonder

As I was leaving the cinema, a girl to my right turned to her friend, motioned towards her face and said “Am I good?” Her friend looked at the running mascara all over her face, laughed and said “You’re not good!” I smiled smugly to myself, for I had the foresight to not wear m...

Bad Moms 2

Bad Moms was an unexpected treasure of a film for me. Following three Mums giving the middle finger to the competitiveness and pressure of being the ‘perfect mum’, it was excellently timed, comedic genius. You can see my full thoughts on it here. Bad Moms 2 aka A Bad Moms Christmas, unfortunatel...

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...

Home Again

Ok. OK. OKAY. I don’t quite know what to make of Home Again.  I know one thing for sure though, Reese Witherspoon hasn’t aged a day since Legally Blonde (daaaamn guuurrrrl). Enough about the good things in this movie, let’s have a little peek into where it went wrong. The basic set up is t...

Brigsby Bear & Nick’s hot dating tips

Of all the reviews I’ve written this one will be one of the hardest. Because I’ve gotta be subtle and light. I’ve gotta run parallel to the subject, to highlight yet not reveal. Because I loved it. I loved Brigsby Bear 9 out of 10. That’s all you really need to know. You can just stop reading now and just g...

Happy Death Day

Does the thought of a cross between satirical slasher movie Scream and the time looping romantic comedy Groundhog Day excite you? Then you’ll love the new black comedy movie, Happy Death Day. Cynical college student Tree Gelbman (Jessica Rothe) wakes on her birthday nursing a raging hangover induced headach...
