Ant-Man and The Wasp – Get it for the Marvel geek in your life

I didn’t actually get to see Ant-Man and the Wasp at the cinema, so I was very excited to get my hands on a 4K copy to review! For a run-down of what we thought of the movie itself, head here! I (like our reviewer Ben) absolutely loved the movie and Ant-Man is also my favourite Marvel super-hero…...

The Grinch

After an 18 year absence the Grinch and his hatred of merriment is returning to the big screen this Christmas. Benedict Cumberbatch voices the nasty green scrooge, who plans to steal Christmas away from those annoying Whos. The Grinch and his trusty dog Max will ensure the residence of Whoville will be with...

Johnny English Strikes Again

I’m going to do things a little bit backwards here, and give you my score out of 10 straight away. For me, Johnny English Strikes Again is absolutely and unequivocally a 5/10! Because I can’t in good conscience lean towards either good or bad on this one. There’s an internal battle going on here, and it’s t...

Mirai

Josh: As we are both the eldest sibling in our families, I wonder, do you have any memory of your younger sibling arriving into your life? I don’t, but I do have a hazy memory of realising all of a sudden I would have to share. There’s a picture of me holding my younger sister gently, but my parents have in...

Christopher Robin: Bring your Hankies and Balloons

I can’t claim to be any sort of Winnie the Pooh expert. As a kid, I had an unfathomable dislike for movies with clothes-wearing animals. And any brush with Winnie the Pooh always lead me to the question of wondering what a “Pooh” was in the first place. After watching Christopher Robin, I have the dis...

Hotel Transylvania 3

It’s round 3 for the Hotel Transylvania franchise and boy has it returned with a fresh coat of paint. While I enjoyed both of the first movies, I never revisited them after seeing them at the cinema. So let’s have a recap shall we? The first film, Dracula’s motivation is to prevent his teenage daughte...

Incredibles 2

  Di: Before we dive into this much-anticipated (by me, anyway) sequel, I think it’s impossible not to give a brief nod to something that’s become a bit of a Pixar tradition: the animated pre-show short film. Jaz: Ooh, yes! It’s called Bao, like the Chinese pork buns, and it’s probably one of my favour...

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...

The Lego Ninjago Movie

I’m going to come right out and say it: I’m 23 years old and I LOVED The Lego Movie and The Lego Batman Movie. The former, I watched 4 times by choice. So my hopes were high for The Lego Ninjago Movie. Lego Ninjago stars the voice talent of Jackie Chan (Master Wu), Dave Franco (Master Builder Ll...

Final Portrait

There is one word all artists have used to describe their work. Whether they be musicians, film-makers, writers, painters, sculptors, or any form of creator in general, there is one word they all use. Ugh. Not even a word really. It’s more of a grunt, a non-committal exclamation expressing disgust and dista...

A Dog’s Purpose

A Dog’s Purpose is one of those family movies that’s mission is to make you cry. Not usually the sort of flick I get amped for. I went along to see kiwi actor K.J. Apa be something other than Archie from Riverdale (yes I’m totally into Riverdale! Leave me alone!). However I didn’t ex...
