Once Upon a Time In Hollywood

I have been reviewing for the crew at Pretty Much Geeks for over a year now and this is the most nervous I have felt about reviewing a film in all that time. As a member of the performing arts industry myself, offering feedback on such a prolific writer and filmmaker such as Quentin Tarantino is super intim...

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...

Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw

JAZ: As soon as I saw the trailer, I knew I had to see this film. DI: OMG. Yuss. I remember that moment. We looked at each other and I think both of us said, “I wanna watch this.” It was that beautiful. JAZ: Even if you’re a Fast and Furious virgin, you don’t have to rely on Youtube videos and l...

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...

Musings on The Lion King

I don’t quite know how to score this one. The Lion King is either amazing or meh depending on what you want from it. If you just want a nostalgia trip and will appreciate a pretty faithful replication of the original, then it’s fricken amazing. If you, like me, want to see a new spin on somethin...

Apollo 11

You’ve seen shots of it a thousand times in movies and in popular culture. Of a big pointy rocket blasting off with chunks of white, frozen material falling off in slow-motion and a dude in a big puffy suit, jumping off a ladder and commenting how important that small hop was. Especially when compared to an...

2040

What will the world look like in 2040? Well, many predictions say the world is going to hell in a handbag and it’s all your fault you plastic-using demon! … However, Damon Gameau has a different narrative for the future. In his new environmental documentary 2040, Damon ponders what the world will look like ...

Crawl

It’s not the crawling part you have to worry about, it’s the biting and tearing you really must look out for. If you ever find yourself transported into the world of Crawl that is. I guess Crawl is a double reference to the fact that the humans do a bunch of crawling around too… But they do swim...

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. Fight me. Or just watch Spider-Man: Far From Home. It’s honestly my favourite live-action Spider-Man film to date. A disclaimer: there are major spoilers for Avengers: Endgame in Spider-Man: Far From Home. So it’s better to go see it before this one. In fact, ...

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) ...

Annabelle Comes Home

Writer Gary Dauberman has certainly got some impressive writing credits under his belt. Having penned the screenplay for both It (2017) and the eagerly anticipated It Chapter Two along with all the previous Annabelle films in The Conjuring universe, means he certainly has the experience and, to an extent, p...

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...
