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...

Fashion meets Fantasy in “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets”

Let’s just call it Valerian. Man, this title is a mouthful. I kept calling it “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Somethings”. Title aside, it has Luc Besson at the helm. If Christopher Nolan is the bad boy, then Besson is the rock star of directors in my eyes. With his typical style of f...

Being a Disney fanatic I was a little concerned when I found out that yet another classic was getting a live action face lift. Not just any classic! One of my all time favs – Beauty and the Beast. I was disappointed with many of the casting announcements and the first glimpse of the soundtrack made Em...

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

First things first. I am not a Potter-fanatic. I’ve read the books once and watched the movies and I’ve enjoyed the experience, but I’m not a hardcore fan. Maybe I have an account on Pottermore. Maybe I’m a Ravenclaw and maybe I queued up to get Matthew Lewis’ autograph around ...

Doctor Strange

Marvel are really getting good at fine-tuning their movies. Doctor Strange feels like it has all the best elements of previous Marvel films with a few new and exciting editions thrown in. It is very obviously an origin story. Prepare yourself for a lot of blatant explaining of everything that Doctor Strange...

A Letter to Momo

I have a love/hate relationship with Japanese animation. I don’t think I need to explain the love part but the hate part is for the same reason that I disliked Mary Poppins and The Wizard of Oz. It seems that as a viewer you can be tracking along just fine, but at some point in time, the movie require...
