Review: Three Thousand Years of Longing

An intellectual and pleasant experience overall. Our story follows an academic named Alithea, who while traveling the world as a scholar of stories, encounters a djinn trapped in a bottle. What happens when a wish granting creature meets a modern, weary individual without wants or desires? The advertising really, really needs to stop referring to…

Review: Nope

There something Human Centipede about this… A family of horse ranchers who have a history in Hollywood, experience strange goings on in their valley after a death in the family… “Academy Award Winner” Jordan Peele, director of horror hits such as Get Out and Us, returns to the big screen with Nope, after a spell…

Review: Bullet Train

A hi-octane, violent, funny action movie that ticks all the right boxes. Multiple trained assassins board a bullet train in Tokyo, only to find out their objectives are intertwined. Directed by David Leitch (director of Deadpool 2, Atomic Blonde, and co-director of John Wick) Bullet Train is a marvellous piece of escapist action. It is…

However, the town doesn’t seem to be all as it appears, and her escape might be taking a completely different route. Alex Garland is something…

Review: Top Gun – Maverick

When someone says longingly: “They don’t make films like that anymore,” this is the sort of film they are talking about! Pete “Maverick” Mitchell may not be in the Navy’s good books anymore, but when a deadly mission requires the best of the best to be even better, he is called in to teach them….

Review: Sonic the Hedgehog 2

After a pretty successful first outing, the sequel has some of the hero’s… overconfidence. Doctor Ivo Robotnik has returned from being marooned on an alien world, hellbent on destroying the blue hedgehog hero that put him there. But he isn’t alone; a new adversary joins him, while Sonic himself gains a new ally. This is…
