  • Film Review: Good Boys

    Gene Stupnitsky’s directorial debut Good Boys is infectious in its silliness. Offering both heart and a lot of laughs, the comedy is very enjoyable.  Three sixth grade boys ditch school […]

  • Film Review: Domino

    Brian De Palma’s Domino is a curious little thriller. The narrative suggests a serious tone, which is contradicted by the style.  Detectives Christian and his long-time partner Lars attempt to […]

  • Film Review: The Current War

    Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s The Current War is a well performed and visually pleasing historical drama. The film engages viewers throughout, building tension in an admirable way. In the late 19th century, […]

    Legendary filmmaker Agnès Varda’s last film Varda By Agnès is just what admirers would expect from her. The film is a most fitting tribute to her career.  Filmmaker, photographer, and […]

  • Film Review: The Dead Don’t Die

    Jim Jarmusch’s zombie comedy The Dead Don’t Die is not quite as satisfying as the package suggests. Nevertheless, there is still plenty to enjoy.  Cliff is police chief of the […]

Film Review: Sex and the City 2

Liza Minnelli singing ‘Single Ladies’ is the highlight of Sex and the City 2. Although there are other entertaining moments in the film, there are also a number of troubling issues. The film is set two years after the first Sex and the City movie. Carrie and Big are in somewhat of a rut, whilst Samantha is trying to defy […]

Film Review: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

For a family-orientated blockbuster in the vein of Pirates of the Caribbean, Prince of Persia is an entertaining enough affair. As expected, the special effects and action sequences excel, whilst the plot and dialogue are less impressive. Adopted as an orphan boy by the Persian King, Dastan grows up in the royal family. After the king is murdered, Dastan must prove his […]

Film Review: Cop Out

Reviews of Cop Out have been mediocre overall. By no means a classic, nonetheless, Cop Out is not as bad as the reviews suggest either. Jimmy and Paul, two NYPD detectives, happen upon a Brooklyn drug ring after Jimmy’s prized baseball card is stolen. A simple mission to recover the card by the duo becomes much more complicated after they discover […]

Film Review: Robin Hood

Whilst there was enough to fault with Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (namely Kevin Cosner), at least it was an enjoyable adventure throughout. Ridley Scott’s version is uneven; whilst entertaining in parts, the film is not without its holes. More of a prequel to the familiar story, Robin Hood focuses on the title characters journey home from the Crusades and to […]

Film Review: Four Lions

Much has been made of Chris Morris’ willingness to court controversy. The subject matter of Four Lions has already caused a stir, however a viewing of the film is enough to subside these alarms. Though perhaps not from the Daily Mail. Four Lions focuses on a group of inept would-be suicide bombers planning a terrorist attack on the UK.  As […]

Film Review: A Nightmare on Elm Street

The antichrist of Hollywood (Michael Bay) strikes again with A Nightmare on Elm Street, yet another remake of a horror classic. This new version is slick, yet this does not detract from its pointlessness. The teens of Springwood are having nightmares, all featuring the same frightening character. Things take a turn for the worse when Freddy Krueger starts to cross the […]

Film Review: It’s a Wonderful Afterlife

Director Gurinder Chadha said in a recent interview that she was sick of making romantic comedies. Perhaps not the best way to promote your new film It’s a Wonderful Afterlife; a romantic comedy. It’s a Wonderful Afterlife tells the story of Roopi, a British-Asian woman, and her mother who is desperate to see her daughter married. So desperate in fact, that […]

Film Review: Iron Man 2

Suspend your disbelief (as is called for by all comic book films), and Iron Man 2 is a thoroughly enjoyable film. Make no mistake, however, as sequels go, Iron Man 2 is no Dark Knight. Following on from Iron Man, the sequel focuses on Tony Stark as he faces a new nemesis in the form Ivan Vanko. Coupled with this […]

Film Review: The Joneses

Demi Moore stepped away from Twitter for long enough to star in Derrick Borte’s film about consumer culture. Whilst the premise of The Joneses is really quite interesting, the film fails in its execution. Four salespeople pretend to be the perfect family moving to a new neighbourhood. With the aim of promoting expensive items to their neighbours, members of the […]
