Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore (spoiler-free review)

Here I sit, eating mini Lindt Easter eggs and trying to figure out where The Secrets of Dumbledore went wrong. If you’ve read my previous reviews of The Fantastic Beasts films, you’ll know that I thoroughly enjoyed both of them and actually gave The Crimes of Grindelwald a higher rating than the...

The Batman

I know what everyone wants to know, so I’m going to start with it.  “Is Robert Pattinson a good Batman?” I am happy to respond to this with a resounding and overwhelmingly confident “HELL YES.” In fact, I would go a step further. I would argue that Pattinson is the best live action Batman to date. Although,...

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

I have a problem. I’m not sure I can fix it. Can I write a reliable review in this state?! How long has it been? How much am I looking forward to this? Sitting with a friend to watch a movie, in the cinema…! Getting a popcorn and a drink, finding my seat. Hearing the excited chatter of everyone else w...

The Suicide Squad

Oh DC, what a rocky road you have had, trying to get out of the large shadow cast by Marvel Studios. It has always seemed so odd to me that despite how great the DC characters are between the pages, in the animated shows and the video games, the leap to blockbuster cinema has been a struggling journey of mi...

The Wrath of Man

Dear Mr Jason Statham You have the acting range of a cardboard box. However, before you assassinate me, which I have no doubt you could and easily get away with it too. Please know one thing, your cardboard boxness is what makes you perfect in the lead in this new film. It’s got all your favourite things Mr...

Twist

It begins with, “There’s no singing, no dancing. And definitely no happy ending.” Damn. I like all those three things. I love Oliver Twist the musical and can do an excellent rendition of Fagin’s “Be Back Soon” if no one is watching. But I was also intrigued enough to che...

Nobody

I’ve had a rough ride of late; a choppy and bumpy journey with the recently released movies. I just figured, ok, we are in a bit of a dry spell here. You just gotta wait it out, just gotta push through. It makes sense with this frek’n pandemic. They’re holding and delaying the good movies and sl...

The Little Things

Denzel Washington, Rami Malek and Jared Leto! An interesting line up to be sure! So when asked who wants to review The Little Things my choose-me arm shot up. I watched about ten seconds of trailer and stopped. I could see it was a crime drama and I did not want to take the risk of a badly edited trailer ru...

Shadow in the Cloud

My mum asked me if I wanted to see Shadow in the Cloud with her. “I don’t think Dad would be interested.” At the time, I had just lost my fifth match of competitive Overwatch in a row, and I thought the distraction would be nice. So I said, “Sure.” “Have you seen the trailer?” she asked. “No,” I replied, “b...

Dune 1984

Guest review by Tim Baker Dune.Now there is a juggernaut of science fiction. A glorious triumph of literature and an embarrassing mistake of cinema. Dune, written by Frank Herbert, was first published in 1965. The novel is a dense, complicated, brilliant story set around the year 10,190 on the eponymous pla...

Meh

Tenet

Or perhaps it’s teneT, the newest movie from Mr. Original Christopher Nolan. A movie that mixes 007 with Doctor Who. Is this the ultimate time travel/bending movie? Wooo! I finally got to the movies, when was the last time..? I can’t remember. Nor what I saw, but I’m back in it! And from all app...

Guns Akimbo

If you really hate the male genitalia then this is the movie for you! Also, trolls. A cautionary tale for the online trolling. That’s what Miles would tell you. In Guns Akimbo, Daniel Radcliffe plays a wimpy game developer who likes dabbling in online trolling. But one day, he trolled the wrong… Troll. And ...
