Deadpool 2

I loooooooved the first Deadpool movie (as, I think, a lot of people did). Which means I probably approached Deadpool 2 with unfairly high expectations. It definitely didn’t disappoint, but perhaps unsurprisingly, it also didn’t surpass its predecessor. Tough to beat an origin story, especially when it’s br...

A Quiet Place

I feel like writing this review in a smaller font, so your brain whispers when you read this review. I dont want to use any caps (which this device is not wanting me to do) and I definitely don’t  ever want to use a exclamation point. I turn  down the light on my notepad as I write so I’m not noticed....

Ready Player One

If you like playing “spot the pop culture reference”, then don’t look any further. Ready Player One is a veritable homecoming for any geeky child of the 80s to feel they’re back in style. But to go backward in time, we must first go forward. The movie kicks off in the year 2045 where...

Meh

Red Sparrow

Jennifer Lawrence, spy-vibes and bad russian accents – I was sold from the first trailer.  Uncomfortable sexual content, incest vibes and skin peeling  – things I wasn’t prepared for. Dominika Egorova (Jennifer Lawrence), a prima ballerina who suffers a leg-snapping end to her career, is f...

The Beautiful Fantastic

This is a supremely sweet movie. Charming, quirky, quaint, and you will feel good for the rest of the day. Bella Brown (a name from a fairy tale in my opinion), is an agoraphobic, OCD shut-in who only ventures from her house to go to her job at the local library. She is an orphan, having been found as a bab...

Could do without

Mary Magdalene

Imagine a bible story where Peter wants war, Jesus falls into trances and faints all the time, and Judas is the most likable character. That is Mary Magdalene in a nutshell. I walked into the theatre quite hopeful. It looked like there was a decent budget behind the film and the friend I went with was prett...

Black Panther

Diversity isn’t something Hollywood is well known for. The American film industry seems to think diversity in films is a sort of novelty that can be pulled out every now and then when they’re trying to be edgy. It’s getting better, but there is still a long way to go. Black Panther is definitely a step in t...

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...

I, Tonya

“I was loved for a minute, then I was hated, then I was just a punchline,” the scrappy Tonya Harding, portrayed by Margot Robbie, puts it bluntly in this movie that that looks at the life of a figure skater the world has loved to hate since the 90s. Even Barack Obama used her name as the punchline to a joke...

Maze Runner: The Death Cure

The third and last installment of Maze Runner picks up where the second movie left off. Thomas leads his friends on an attempted rescue mission to save Minho. Continuing from the first two installments, our heroes are relentlessly fighting against their captors, WCKD, to maintain their freedom. If you haven...

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...

Your Name (Kimi no na wa)

  “The braided cords that we make are the god’s art and represent the flow of time itself. They converge and take shape. They twist, tangle, sometimes unravel, break, and then connect again.” Mitsuha Miyamizu is a teenage girl from a small mountain town. She’s mild-mannered and dutiful to the rit...
