Late Night

It’s no secret that I am a long time fan of everything Mindy Kaling. It’s also no secret that everyone with a brain is a fan of Emma Thompson. So I’ve basically been amped for Late Night from the moment it was first announced and it did not disappoint.  Emma Thompson plays Katherine Newbury, a late night ta...

Booksmart

Good morning, winner. Take a deep breath. Visualize the mountain of your success and look down at everyone who’s ever doubted you. Fuck those losers. Fuck them in their stupid fucking faces.“ And that is how teenagers think. Booksmart is a coming-of-age teenage film which actually feels like it is abo...

I Believe In Yesterday

I read about the concept for the plot of Yesterday, before it was attached to a director, and knew it was going to be a movie I was going to love. What would you do if you woke up being the only person in the world that remembered The Beatles existed? That is the question faced by Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) ...

Child’s Play

As the Pretty Much Geeks’ unofficial horror geek, I was delighted to go along to an advanced screening of Child’s Play – a sort of reboot for the modern era of the 80’s black comedic classic (which admittedly I don’t think I had even seen in its entirety). This film had all the requi...

Toy Story 4

When Toy Story 3 was announced, I thought “Oh no. They’re going to ruin the series! Why are they making another one?!” But I walked out of that film happily proven wrong. When they announced Toy Story 4, I thought “Okay, I know I was wrong last time… but this time they actually can’t! Toy Story 3 wrapped th...

MIB: International

It’s hard to believe it’s been over 20 years since Men In Black was first released in 1997. I remember seeing it at the movies with my Daddy and enjoying the mix of humour, sci-fi, alien battles and of course the brilliant mix of Will Smith (back when he was cool) alongside the dry performance of Tommy Lee ...

Pokemon: Detective Pikachu

Pokemon figurines were my star chart rewards growing up. In primary school I had a friendship based purely around the fact that she had the Pokemon game on her PC – and I did not. I traded the cards, I had my figurines stolen by dick kids in my class, I had a talking Pikachu toy that was basically lik...

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Digital Release

Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse is a movie that caught me completely by surprise. I hadn’t heard too much about it, prior to seeing it, and had no expectations. I was blown away. I would probably rank it in my top 5 favourite animated movies EVER (I love animated movies – so it’s a big d...

An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn

An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn is an odd little film indeed. Assembling an amazing comedic cast of Aubrey Plaza, Emile Hirsch, Jemaine Clement, Craig Robinson and Matt Berry, writer/director Jim Hosking (The Greasy Strangler) presents a strange, hilarious, awkward and just plain weird love story that is ...

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part

Josh – The second installment of The LEGO Movie is a fast paced, laugh-out-loud thrill ride. Building on the success of the original, The Second Part replicates its former success and then some, packing this film chockablock full of lols, pop references, throwback lines and plenty of infectious music....

Shazam!

Already being a bit of a Zachary Levi fan-girl, I was fairly confident It wouldn’t take much for me to want to join the #Shazamily. See? It’s too late for me! RUUUUUUNNNN. However, the greatness of Shazam! definitely doesn’t rest purely on his shoulders – he has an incredible cast an...

Fighting With My Family

The wrestling world is an intriguing phenomenon. It is a massive, multi-million dollar industry that has a breed of superfans rarely seen in any other sport. I have always appreciated the sheer athleticism and skill required to perform what is essentially a muscley dance although I have never been a fan mys...
