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 welcoming hug of my frazzled uncle. It was nice sitting down with everyone as we all prepared o...

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 by, but it really lacked the plot line and character development that I have come to expect ...

3 Reasons You Should See Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse

You might have already seen it, but Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse officially comes to cinemas January 3rd! And if you haven’t already seen it, well, you better get your act together and go ASAP. Ben and Ashton have three flippin’ good reasons why!

Ralph Breaks the Internet

You and I step into Tapper’s together. We sit down and wave the barman over. He asks us our orders before handing us a root beer each. We both smell it in disgust because it’s root beer and so I offer you a ginger beer, spiced with cinnamon for the festive season. “So,” you pop the lid off your beer, “How was your day?” “Well,” I reply, “I̵...

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 fight a giant shark and that’s it. You expect bad CGI, bad lines, bad characters, and a...

Solo: A Star Wars Story

The choice to do a Han Solo origin film is one that has sat uneasily with me since the announcement. Origin stories can easily become overused in media when a fictional universe is expanding and the corporations who own it want to make as much money as possible. If you are going to do an origin film it needs to add to a character’s story and to answer some burning questions but is there really tha...

Ready Player One

If you like playing “spot the pop culture reference”, then don’t look any further. Ready Player One is a veritable homecoming for any geeky child of the 80s to feel they’re back in style. But to go backward in time, we must first go forward. The movie kicks off in the year 2045 where reality is in shambles. Our hero Wade Watts lives in “The Stacks”, a high-rise ...

It (2017)

Director Andrés Muschietti had a challenging task in reimagining It, originally an iconic miniseries based on the novel by legend of horror Stephen King. For a modern audience, the idea of a horror movie with a clown as the main antagonist seems destined to flop. It would be very easy to fall into the realm of cheesy absurdity and have the audience in fits of giggles rather than frozen in fear. Fo...

Fashion meets Fantasy in “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets”

Let’s just call it Valerian. Man, this title is a mouthful. I kept calling it “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Somethings”. Title aside, it has Luc Besson at the helm. If Christopher Nolan is the bad boy, then Besson is the rock star of directors in my eyes. With his typical style of fashion runway meets sci-fi fantasy, this is a feast for the eyes that is actually worth payi...

The Mummy

I was excited for two brand names, The Mummy and Tom Cruise, so how could I miss this one on the big screen. A movie with a head start into my good books is rare for me. I really enjoyed the fun adventure of the first one. It was funny and the effects were amazing for the day. The perfect, big stupid movie you could say. So, in this review I’ll keep with this positivity and start with the positive...

Churchill

I’ve been critiqued before for my loose definition of what a “war movie” is. What is a war movie anyway? Does it require a certain volume of blood and guts to qualify? No one has been able to explain it satisfactorily to me so I’m going out on a limb and saying that Churchill is a war movie. The intensity of war is in every minute of it and yet, there is not a single scene ...

Colossal

If you want something a bit off-beat, Colossal might meet your needs in this old-school-monster-meet-dysfunctional-people movie. Unemployed and alcoholic Gloria (ANNE HATHAWAY) gets thrown out of boyfriend Tim’s apartment after one too many times of late night partying. In a haze, she returns to her small town of Mainhead where she bumps into old childhood friend Oscar. Oscar seems pretty de...
