1917

This movie I went into with fresh eyes. I watched one trailer and I knew 1917 was for me. So I never watched another. I went in with just one question, will it compare will it compete, with Dunkirk. It’s the height of the First World War and we immediately join two friends on a mission. An insanely importan...

The Gentlemen: More Fun than Should be Allowed

So here’s me trying to convince my friend to come see The Gentlemen with me. I send him the trailer link accompanied by this message, “I love this director but I honestly, I can’t understand too much of the plot.” Friend writes back. “Oh wow, that IS my type of movie.” Th...

Tim’s Star Wars Countdown #6 – A Long Time Ago…

One of my earliest memories is watching A New Hope in Papakura with my family around 1995 or 1996. I would have been 4 at the oldest and can only remember a few snippets from the film but it still remains in the primeval pockets of my earliest memories and impressions. A New Hope, originally just called ‘St...

Tim’s Star Wars Countdown #5 – One Rogue Solo

When it was revealed in 2012 that Disney had bought Star Wars and were planning on making a new trilogy, the thought that went through my head, as a life-long fanboy, was ‘do we really need this?’ Then all the news and previews of The Force Awakens looked great. Shortly after, Disney started tal...

Tim’s Star Wars Countdown #4 – Calm Down Anakin

I’m gonna come out and say it: I like the prequels. I know they have their bad points but it’s been fourteen years since Revenge of the Sith and twenty years since the Phantom Menace; I think we’ve spent enough time complaining. I can remember playing Star Wars with my friends in 1999 at primary school. I k...

Charlie’s Angels

Was 11 year old Saskia a fan of Charlie’s Angels (2000)? YES. Was 30 year old Saskia a fan of Charlie’s Angels (2019)? YES. Has my taste in movies adapted and matured over the years? I LIKE TO THINK SO. Just like 2000 Charlie’s Angels was made for it’s time (possibly the most 2000ish...

Terminator: Dark Fate

I have completed a significant experiment. And like any good science madman I shortcutted official approval, but I was unwilling to place anyone else in jeopardy. So when I called for volunteers for this great undertaking, only my right arm knew what to do. I lay myself in the petri dish of movie-watching s...

Spider-Man: Far From Home – to take home

When I agreed to review Far From Home I still hadn’t actually seen Homecoming. So I quickly watched that the night before Far From Home arrived at my door. I really enjoyed Homecoming for the most part and I was excited to finally sit down and get into it’s supposedly much better sequel! You can...

Zombieland: Double Tap

I re-watched Zombieland the night before going to see Double Tap to remember why I loved it so much when I first saw it and get myself hyped for the sequel. I can tell you I loved it just as much during the re-watch! The charm of Zombieland, for me, was the teaming up of 4 unlikely companions and the narrat...

Waste of time

The Night Eats the World

Catchy title, I like the graphic on the front, ohh two little award stamps! I’ve judged this movie to be a good one from its cover alone! That’s how good I am at this. Someone spends the time on the graphics and fonts and layout its gotta be good. It’s a zombe movie! Lock it in. Set in a block of flats in P...

Joker – Ashton’s Favourite movie OF ALL TIME

Over 10 years ago, a movie was released that redefined cinema to me. Christopher Nolan took my favourite superhero and my favourite supervillain and created one of the most thrilling, exciting, well acted and endearing cinematic films of my life. Nolan took the characters from the pages of a comic book and ...

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

It’s fair to say, it’s been a tough couple of weeks for Mr. Wick. Considering that the events of all 3 movies take place in just a few days of each other. However, we the viewers have had to wait a fair bit longer than that to discover what happens to John in Chapter 3. John Wick 3 – Parabellum is now...
