King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

May 22, 2017

In true Guy Ritchie style, this is a movie you should approach with an open mind. This new telling of the mythological King Arthur tale takes a few multi genre turns that may throw off some viewers, but stick with it and allow the movie to show you a new take on an old favourite. Charlie Hunnam plays the...

Your enjoyment of this film probably depends on how you deal with the reveal of the underlying concept. You could call that a twist, although the hints are there throughout. In the film’s own logic all that makes perfect sense and makes for an ending both unsettling and deeply satisfying. The...

If you can consider this more of a prologue than the main text, than Suicide Squad might pleasantly surprise you.

The story that inspired Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, entitled In the Heart of the Sea starring Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy and Tom Holland looks is a be a breathtaking adventure filled with sea, survival, and a massive whale.

Ricki & The Flash

Ricki & The Flash

Aug 26, 2015

Being a bit of an ageing rocker myself, I could relate to the character of Ricki Rendazzo, played by Meryl Streep, who had left her husband and three children behind to follow the Rock’n’Roll dream. Ever the consummate professional, Meryl learnt to play guitar for this movie, and also does...

The Gallows is a high-paced, jump-scare, horror film that follows four high school students after they get stuck in their theater right before the play, “The Gallows” is to be performed. Not terrible acting combined with a take on the found film genre and you get a pretty decent movie. The...

The Imitation Game

Two-thirds in, I realized how fortunate I was to finally see Spike Jonze’s “Her” just a few days ago – these two are spiritually entwined, both placing the greatest value in the harmony of two minds, paying no heed to social conventions. Whereas Turing is the founding father of...

Horrible Bosses 2

Horrible Bosses 2

Dec 12, 2014

I loved the first “Horrible Bosses” , and I really liked the 2nd one. The whole cast is back and just as funny. Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day are back as inventors of a shower tool. They try to make a big deal with a millionaire(Christoph Waltz), and end up getting screwed over....

This Is Where I Leave You

This Is Where I Leave You

Oct 22, 2014

Hilary Altman: For the next seven days, you are all my children again and you are all grounded. Sometimes a film works merely based on an all-star cast. You can get away with some passionless writing if you have a convincing cast. This Is Where I Leave You is the newest film from director Shawn Levy and has...
