Review: Men

Possibly the most over-indulgent film by Alex Garland yet… When a woman’s husband kills himself, she rents out an old manor in the English countryside to escape the haunting memories. 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: Everything Everywhere All At Once

Moments of absurdity, emotion-filled, comedic, action packed. This film quite possibly has everything.

But when her husband exhibits near inhuman abilities, and suddenly tells her she is the…

But he isn’t alone; a new adversary joins him, while Sonic himself gains a new ally. This is…

Review: Knives Out

A modern whodunnit thriller. Funny, classy, but a little simplistic. When a famous author is found dead, seemingly within a closed room in his family’s house, his nurse becomes the centre of attention as a private investigator is called in. But stranger things are afoot. Released in 2019, director Rian Johnson (who at the time…

Review: The Batman

Well, your gut instinct on a film is just correct some times… There is a new killer in Gotham City, and lieutenant Jim Gordon brings in the masked vigilante known as The Batman to pursue leads on the criminal’s identity. Little do they realize, their investigation will bring them head-to-head with some of Gotham’s worst,…

Review: Spider-Man – No Way Home

A convergence of storylines, film studios, and forgotten screenplays, shouldn’t be this good. Peter Parker’s identity has been revealed to the world, and spins his life around. Seeing the consequences negatively affect his friends, he looks for ways to undo what happened. However, his desires threaten to rip the multi-verse apart. There’s a vocal minority…
