Review: Joker

This is not your average comic book movie. Arthur Fleck, a failed comedian and performing clown in Gotham city, lives with his ageing mother while hopelessly trying to make it in show business. But the darkness in his head and the oppressive, uncompromising reality outside threaten to unravel his sanity completely. It is a little…

Review: The Lego Batman Movie (2D)

Lego Batman is a riotous time, as insane and fun its 2014 originator but not quite as endearing. Batman is the hero of Gotham, he is loved and praised by all, despite him being a selfish, arrogant loner living in a huge mansion, at constant odds with his emotions.

What…

As if progressing from such experiences as Scott Pilgrim and Wreck-It Ralph, The Lego Movie fully embraces its decision to simple exist that what we get is magical, insane, inspiring, childish and so unbelievably happy. I had a stupid, stupid grin on my face constantly. Emmett is a construction worker living in a…

Saga Review: Batman

Possibly one of the most iconic, well received and respected “superheroes” created, Batman’s success is thanks to the relatively down-to-Earth nature of the character, a billionaire with a taste for vengeance, with training and a lot of gadgets. It is the villains that broaden Batman’s scope, and are always the most interesting and mesmerising elements in any…
