REVIEW: The Aeronauts (2019)

Pleasant and charming are the first two words that come to mind when I think of The Aeronauts. Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones team up once again after the success of ‘The Theory of Everything’. This time around Redmayne is James Glaisher, a scientist who believes that he…

REVIEW: Jojo Rabbit (London Film Festival 2019)

Right from the start, Jojo Rabbit had critics and the audience divided. Premiering at the Toronto film festival it was received with both praise and criticism mainly because of its portrayal of Nazis. Packed with a star-filled cast who all received praise helped it win the People’s Choice…

REVIEW: Gemini Man (2019)

On paper, an action film produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, directed by Ang Lee and starring Will Smith sounds like a sure-fire hit. At least in the mid 90’s it would have been, but as the current decade ends Gemini Man already feels dated. For those…

REVIEW: Bumblebee (2018)

Let’s be honest, Transformer fans haven’t had an easy ride with movie adaptions. Back in 1985 during Transformers: The Animated Movie, every child’s favourite Autobot Optimus Prime was unexpectedly killed off.

LFF 2018: Stan & Ollie

Back in 1937 Laurel and Hardy were at the peak of their powers but their friendship was starting to creek. Strangely Stan Laurel was out of contact with the studio. He wanted a new and better deal. Oliver Hardy was still under contract and seemed to be happy with his current…
