Regret

Dark Crimes

In my late teens I was introduced to one of Jim Carrey’s first movies – Copper Mountain. This one hour long nightmare of a comedy/music film is a complete disaster and is one of those “so bad it’s good” movies we used to watch and quote over a few beers. Think The Room but without the cult succe...

Glass on Blu-Ray

There it is, Glass by M.Night Shyamalan. I actually missed it the first time around and I really loved Unbreakable and Split. Two movies that turned out to be a trilogy with Glass by M.Night Shmarmilon. What a movie by the prince of movie twists! I really loved Signs and The Sixth Sense. I’m really happy fo...

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...

Us

In 2017, writer/director Jordan Peele blew audiences away with his cleverly written social commentary horror movie, Get Out. I was late to the viewing party on this one and although I loved it I had sadly gotten caught up in the hype around it so it was never going to exceed my ridiculous expectations. Howe...

Mandy

What people say about Mandy : “Mandy is F***ing nuts “Finally a good Nicholas Cage movie “The most insane Nic Cage movie ever made What I say about Mandy : “What? Look, I didn’t like Mandy okay. Yes, I know that heaps of film buffs, critics, reviewers and 2018 Top Ten Youtube lists liked it. Yes, I was supe...

The Girl in the Spider’s Web

“After all, Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels…”. A fitting quote to open my review of Fede Alvarez’s The Girl in the Spider’s Web. In one of the opening scenes of this action/thriller/drama from the director of the brilliantly violent Evil Dead r...

Could do without

The Predator

Director Shane Black has upset people before. Many fans strongly disliked his addition to the Iron Man franchise with claims that the film’s interpretation of The Mandarin butchered one of the most feared villains from the comics. I personally found Iron Man 3 to be pretty enjoyable – sure it wa...

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 Meg

“That was the best movie I’ve seen all year!” my friend exclaimed as we left the cinema. While I can’t quite agree with her, I was certainly blown away at how not-bad The Meg had turned out to be. When you walk into a monster movie like The Meg, all you want to see is Jason Statham f...

A Quiet Place

I feel like writing this review in a smaller font, so your brain whispers when you read this review. I dont want to use any caps (which this device is not wanting me to do) and I definitely don’t  ever want to use a exclamation point. I turn  down the light on my notepad as I write so I’m not noticed....

Meh

Red Sparrow

Jennifer Lawrence, spy-vibes and bad russian accents – I was sold from the first trailer.  Uncomfortable sexual content, incest vibes and skin peeling  – things I wasn’t prepared for. Dominika Egorova (Jennifer Lawrence), a prima ballerina who suffers a leg-snapping end to her career, is f...

Great

Atomic Blonde

I never thought I would enjoy a movie that’s essentially about a woman beating a whole bunch of men to death quite so much. Set in Berlin in 1989, Atomic Blonde is an action thriller that proves a woman can quite deftly step into James Bond’s shoes. There’s big 80’s hits from Queen, Depeche Mode and Goldfin...
