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...

The Price of Everything

Sometimes, tucked into the news, you’ll hear a report of an Andy Warhol ‘selfie’ going for 7 million dollars. You might have muttered to yourself about the ridiculousness of it all. For me, the thought has always ended there. For Director Nathaniel Kahn, it’s a question that deserves an answer. How did it a...

The Nutcracker and the Family Movie Night

It was the first time in a long while that my aunt had sat down with her family for a movie night. The week had been a bit of a strenuous one, but it was nice to be able to look forward to something. I arrived with The Nutcracker and the Four Realms on bluray to the excited chatter of my cousins and the wel...

Captain Marvel

Escape Room

Horror movies often do what they say on the packet. Often chucking in a twist or two but more often than not you know what to expect by looking at the poster. My expectations about a film called “Escape Room” were fairly minimal given that the synopsis was what you’d expect (people in an escape room that tu...

What Men Want

What Men Want is probably to not see this movie. LOLOLOLOL. I’m sorry. Let’s be honest, none of us were expecting this to be a good one. You’ve seen the trailer right? Yes. You know what you’re getting yourself into. I sat myself down in that theatre – knowing it wasn’t m...

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...

Sailor Moon S – The Movie

Oh the nostalgia! I was giggling while watching the opening credits – and they aren’t even that funny. It was the excitement I felt knowing I was about to watch a Sailor Moon movie! I wish my excitement had lasted… I know writing this review will disappoint the younger Andrea of days gone ...
