Review – STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI

Credit: Lucasfilm Early in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, writer/director Rian Johnson’s unenviable attempt to out-middle-trilogy The Empire Strikes Back, the film picks up immediately following the last frame of J.J. Abrams’ The Force Awakens, with Rey silently offering Luke Skywalker’s old lightsaber to him, the one he lost along with a hand in the final moments of - you guessed it - Empire.   RAW PRESS JUNKET AUDIO!

Coco movie review: Pixar’s latest offering is warm, magical, and saves us any sermonising

One has got to hate Pixar for constantly making grown men struggle to hold back tears. Coco is yet another gem in their exquisite catalogue of films; it’s an entertaining but emotional, magical but also surprisingly real journey with heavy themes rendered in Pixar’s trademark simple and cohesive ways. It’s also an absolute visual delight. The film is directed by Lee Unkrich who has co-directed Toy Story 2, its sequel, as well as Monsters Inc, and he brings his years of experience into telling a...

Thor Ragnarok Review: WOW AWESOME! a must see.

Ragnarok is a familiar term for die-hard Thor fans, an important event in Norse mythology that predicts doom for the gods and the beginning of the end of the world. And director Tiaka Waititi builds Thor: Ragnarok on this dramatic premise. In this, the third film from the Thor franchise, Chris Hemsworth has to play the God of Thunder without his legendary hammer. Weak and lost, he reunites with his brother, the troublesome Loki (Tom Hiddleston), to save their kingdom, Asgard, fr...

‘Professor Marston’ is full of surprises

Should of spent more time on the comic- but served its purpose! “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women,” on the other hand, is full of surprises. Who knew that the creator of “Wonder Woman” was a disgraced Harvard-educated psychology professor looking for an outlet for his radical ideas? “A comic book, Bill?” “Well, it’s perfect. I’m going to inject my ideas right into the thumping heart of America.” “She’s an Amazon princess that lives on an island of all woman.” “Paradise Islan...

The Foreigner’ Pairs Jackie Chan With Pierce Brosnan In A Well-Crafted, Mostly Sparkless Thriller

 We give it a C (so so) There are two sorts of plot at work in The Foreigner, a new thriller from Martin Campbell (Casino Royale, Green Lantern). One is labyrinthine, a tale of subterranean political intrigue and terrorism with a new twist in every scene. The other is straight as a bullet from a gun, a single-minded tale of revenge driven by one man’s passion to punish those who have harmed him. We’re used to seeing one or the other, but seldom both at once and that me...

‘Blade Runner 2049’ – Film Review

Harrison Ford forgot co-star Ryan Gosling's name Credit: Warner Bros. A new chapter. A triumph. A cinematic miracle To make a sequel, 35 years on, to one of the most important sci-fi movies is an act of incredible hubris. That Denis Villeneuve has made a Blade Runner movie that doesn’t sully Ridley Scott’s original is extraordinary. That he’s made a follow-up that perhaps even surpasses its parent is something close to a cinematic miracle. If you have never watched the first...

YOUR NERD SIDE Film Review: Stronger

A man sits up in a hospital bed, nervously talking to his doctors. We peer down from just above his left shoulder, seeing his tense profile, his hands gripping the blankets, the arms of the medical staff hovering, straightening, tucking. He has lost his legs, and as they start to change the bandages, he begins to scream. It’s routine, a part of his time in the hospital, but that doesn’t make it hurt less. Another face enters the frame, comforting, calming, soothing, but obvious...
