REVIEW: The Festival (2018)

The Inbetweeners, the Channel 4 hit sitcom about a ragtag group of loveably crude schoolboys, very much captured the zeitgeist. So much so, it has become a rite of passage for each generation since it hit the small screen, much to parents’ dismay. The series…

REVIEW: Sorry To Bother You (2018)

When I heard about the cast of this film towards the end of last year, my excitement levels went through the roof. Lakeith Stanfield was an extremely hot property after ‘Atlanta’ and ‘Get Out’, Tessa Thompson’s star had risen in 2017 with ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ (and only…

REVIEW: Walk Like A Panther (2018)

British comedy films can be rather hit and miss and in the case of ‘Walk Like A Panther’, it unfortunately looks like we have another miss on our hands despite having a promising premise and cast.  22 years after the plug was pulled on British…

With an obsession for the cheap laugh and dull dialogue, ‘Peter Rabbit’ fails to capture a lasting impression of a moral lesson. The film is adapted from ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’, the children’s book written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter, which were later adapted…
