The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

Christmas came early… but unfortunately it’s probably one just for the kids. As the posters and trailers have promised, it is a visual spectacular. The costumes are absolutely stunning, the world is inventive, beautiful and mysterious and the ballet is entrancing. But it’s a fancy facade t...

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…...

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

I enjoyed the first Fantastic Beasts movie. So if you and I are already at odds about that, then you might not want to trust my thoughts on the second one. You can check out my review of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them here. I’m also aware that Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald is gettin...

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...

A Simple Favour

It’s hard not to go into A Simple Favour and compare it to Gone Girl. I urge you not to, if you can resist, because although it does seem to follow several plot points from Gone Girl – A Simple Favour is it’s own confusing blend of genres. However, it’s too hard not to… so I am...

The Spy Who Dumped Me

Ahhh McKinnon, you’ve done it again. Yes, that was a weak re-purposing of the McCain commercial catch-phrase. “What’s that?” you ask? Please don’t embarrass us both with that question. I went into The Spy Who Dumped Me with fairly low expectations. I knew I’d at least enj...

Alto’s Odyssey

I get home from an especially full on day. I’m feeling tired and a bit stressed out. I have one of those tension headaches lurking around, making me frown and fueling some serious grumps. I pull out my phone, open Alto’s Odyssey and feel it all melt away…. It sounds annoyingly dramatic, bu...

Skyscraper (brought to you by Duct Tape)

It may be able to fix all wounds and help Dwayne Johnson stick to the side of crazy tall buildings, however, no amount of duct tape can save Skyscraper from being a pretty terrible film. In saying that, I still enjoyed it! I just really wanted to highlight how terrible every mention of duct tape in Skyscrap...

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...

Jurassic World 2: Fallen Kingdom

I’ve always loved the Jurassic franchise. It’s got dinosaurs, it’s got laughs, it’s got stupid decisions, it’s got Jeff Goldblum and it’s got just enough suspense and dino-surprises to thrill, but not keep you up at night. It’s fun. What more could you possibly want...

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...
