Waste of time

Hellboy (2019)

You know, I got the fears just as I was driving to watch this. It just suddenly dawned on me. I absolutely love the original Hellboy movies, so how could this one possibly compete? What am I doing?! It can’t be made better, can it? But then maybe it’ll be on par, yes maybe. You can’t stuff a movie like this...

The Curse of the Weeping Woman AKA The Curse of La Llorona

Saskia – I’m not good with horror films. Me attending this with you, Ashton, started out as a joke. A joke that turned into a little Ashton’s dream. A dream that  I couldn’t bear to shatter. I must say, though, I had a great time! Ashton – Everything in my life starts out as a joke. But as Saski...

Mary Poppins Returns

As much as I call myself a Disney fan, Mary Poppins has been an anomaly for me. I won’t deny that the original was a marvel with its blend of live action and animation. But I can’t shake that drug-induced feeling the moment the penguins start dancing on screen. Unexplained sequences of events ar...

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part

Josh – The second installment of The LEGO Movie is a fast paced, laugh-out-loud thrill ride. Building on the success of the original, The Second Part replicates its former success and then some, packing this film chockablock full of lols, pop references, throwback lines and plenty of infectious music....

Good

Wonder Park

A couple of awesome looking family flicks are popping up in theatres, just in time for the school holidays! One of these is Wonder Park, so I headed along to see if it was worth dragging the kids along for an outing. Wonder Park‘s main girl June is #DreamChild. She’s smart, joyful and loves to i...

Pet Sematary

Just when you thought you couldn’t stand to watch another cat video… Just when you had given up on the hope of seeing anything new and fresh when it comes to your favourite feline friend… along comes Pet Sematary! There was only one naughty little furry in the movie but trust me, that’s all you’...

Flippin' great

Shazam!

Already being a bit of a Zachary Levi fan-girl, I was fairly confident It wouldn’t take much for me to want to join the #Shazamily. See? It’s too late for me! RUUUUUUNNNN. However, the greatness of Shazam! definitely doesn’t rest purely on his shoulders – he has an incredible cast an...

Dumbo

Dumbo and Pinocchio have never been Disney classic favourites of mine. I haven’t been able to sit through them again in my adulthood (even though I’ve tried), they’re just too odd, uncomfortable and depressing. Disney’s Live action ‘take’ on the animated classic maintains...
