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...

In The Heights

Fans of the musical Hamilton, take note! Lin Manuel Miranda’s In The Heights has finally made it to the big screen, and boy was it worth the wait.  For fans of Miranda like myself, it’s a treat seeing him cameo in the film – although I bet when he starred on Broadway as Usnavi, he’d never have im...

Great

A Quiet Place Part II

Oh boy here we go, man I’ve been waiting for this movie for so long. One of the longest delayed movies because of the that nasty C word. The C-Virus. Seriously that beer needs to change its name because I hate that word. But as the tide changes, the releases of all these movies that have been held uphas fin...

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...

Mortal Kombat

Back, back, forward and down, down, up, I think. Those are the two moves I can remember off the top of my head. Both are for Raiden. I think I would have muscle memory for a bunch of others if I played again. That’s the original Mortal Kombat too. I had Mortal Kombat 2 on my first PC. Loved watching my frie...

Could do without

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...

Tom & Jerry

Typically found in short episodic adventures, Tom & Jerry have been given a makeover for the big screen, just in time for the school holidays. The playful pair have moved to NYC, Jerry is on the hunt for a new house and Tom is pursuing his dream to become a famous musician. But when Jerry makes himself ...

Made in Italy

I’d always wanted to see what Flight of the Conchords’ Bret McKenzie would be like in a non-comedic romantic role. Well, this wasn’t it, just in case you’re wondering. But it’s close. Bret’s body double -also known as Micheál Richardson- plays Jack, an art gallery owner. ...

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...

Waste of time

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...

Meh

Wrong Turn

The year is 2003. I am 16 years old. Eliza Dushku is at the height of her popularity and trashy horrors about red-neck, inbred hillbillies are making a resurgence in the new millennium with plenty of gore and very few teeth. The original Wrong Turn was a fairly predictable but enjoyable brainless horror fea...

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...
