‘Baby Driver’ – Review

Most movies these days seem to slip in and out of theatres with little fanfare or critical acclaim, while others ignite audiences and inspire a kind of passion that critics have long lost. Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver is definitely the latter. Written and directed by Wright, this slick watch follows a getaway driver named Baby (Ansel Elgort), who finds […]

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ – Review

I never thought I’d live to see yet another version of Spider-Man, let alone willingly attend another screening given Tobey Maguire’s final run gave me serious fatigue (soz Tobs), but THIS is different. We’ve seen Peter Parker getting bit by a radioactive spider, going through the motions of losing his Uncle Ben, and dealing with […]

‘Wonder Woman’ – Review

Superhero movies aren’t exactly a rarity these days, but good ones certainly are. Thankfully, Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman ticks all the boxes. Thoughtful, important, empowering, and electric are just a few words I’d use to describe the highly anticipated blockbuster, but above all, genius comes to mind. Jenkins has delivered a poignant and powerful superhero origin story […]

New ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ TV spots tease rivalries and destiny

Charlie Hunnam is the undisputed king of our dreams, and in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, he’ll be fulfilling more than our fantasies as he battles for his birthright. Though the release date for the upcoming blockbuster had been pushed a number of times, we’re finally on the homestretch, with the film gearing […]

‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ – Review

Whether you go for James Gunn’s music playlist and witty references, Chris Pratt’s abbbssssss, or to keep up with the damn MCU and those tricky post-credit scenes, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 won’t let you down. The world was so ill prepared for the first spectacle that many audience members had no clue who the Guardians were (myself included), but the […]

Check out the first trailer for ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

Something big is coming this December. The first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has arrived, giving us a taste of the next adventure that Rey (Daisy Ridley), Luke (Mark Hamill) and Finn (John Boyega) will undertake. While there’s still little information given on the storyline, we can see that the Resistance are facing some major […]

Netflix’s ‘Dear White People’ trailer looks smart, funny and timely

I’m in tears right now…don’t worry the good “I’ve been laughing so hard” kind. The official trailer for Netflix’s Dear White People recently dropped, bringing with it the same clever writing, brilliant acting and comedic timing audiences got to enjoy in the 2014 film it’s based on. Writer and director Justin Simien has returned to helm all […]

‘Logan’ – Review

It feels bittersweet to write this review, being a huge fan of everything X-Men-related, especially Hugh Jackman’s incredible portrayal of Logan/Wolverine since his introduction in Bryan Singer’s X-Men in 2000. After saving the world countless times and losing everyone close to him, it was time for Logan to hang up his claws, but not without one last fight for […]

‘Split’ – Review

WARNING: this review contains spoilers.  I’m a big fan of M. Night Shyamalan, so it’s no surprise that I was instantly hooked the moment James McAvoy appeared on screen in the director’s latest psychological mind twist, Split.  The film sees McAvoy playing a man named Kevin, who has 23 different personalities. One of the more dangerous […]
