Disney’s Aladdin (that live-action one you’ve all been fearing)

Hi, I’m Eloise and I’m a Disney-fanatic. I’ve always been a massive Disney fan and absolutely love the Disney Princess movies. My favourite though, is Beauty and The Beast  (probably because Belle loves reading books and so do I!). However, as it was my childhood favourite Disney Princess movie, I was very ...

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...

Avengers: Endgame

I just saw Avengers: Endgame. What just happened. My brain hurts. Too much awesome-ness and too many emotions and too great and  much grood and wowowowowow. I wanted to write this review as soon as I got home. Fast and fresh. Give the people the low down on the much-anticipated film. I don’t think I c...

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...

Dumbo

Dumbo and Pinocchio have never been Disney classic favourites of mine. I haven’t been able to sit through them again in my adulthood (even though I’ve tried), they’re just too odd, uncomfortable and depressing. Disney’s Live action ‘take’ on the animated classic maintains...

Five Feet Apart – AKA Cole Sprouse on the big screen AKA nurses are cool

Full disclosure. I am going to tell you to pay money to see this movie purely so you can enjoy Cole Sprouse’s face on the big screen. I cannot guarantee that other positive things I say from this point on are not influenced by my desire for you to enjoy some ginormous Sprouse. Five Feet Apart follows ...

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...

Daffodils

In 2014, a rare theatrical delight opened in Q Theatre’s Loft produced by Bullet Heart Club based on the life of playwright Rochelle Bright’s parents. Through re-imagined Kiwi classics it told the honest tale of two people falling in love and starting a life together in 1960’s Hamilton. With songs by Crowde...

Happy Death Day 2U

Ashton – I actually thought this movie started pretty strongly. Following a minor character from the original film, on the same day that it all went down. It immediately established a decent tone (comedy over horror) and I was pretty intrigued about it all. Sadly that was about it for me. A small leve...

Mandy

What people say about Mandy : “Mandy is F***ing nuts “Finally a good Nicholas Cage movie “The most insane Nic Cage movie ever made What I say about Mandy : “What? Look, I didn’t like Mandy okay. Yes, I know that heaps of film buffs, critics, reviewers and 2018 Top Ten Youtube lists liked it. Yes, I was supe...

Green Book

Warm and fuzzy, that’s how I felt exiting the theatre after seeing Green Book. This film is a beautiful piece of story-telling that takes a hard look at the racism of the Jim Crow South, through a very personal relationship between two friends. Based on the true story of African-American concert pianist Don...

Stan & Ollie

Laurel & Hardy are one of the iconic comedy duos that despite passing away well before my time is still a comedy duo I have always understood to have shaped the way comedy is today. Like The Two Ronnies, Monty Python and more recently Key & Peele and SNL, they are an iconic sketch comedy team. Risin...
