Review: Avengers – Endgame

Earth’s mightiest heroes get to mulligan the last eleven years. The Avengers are broken and Earth is desolate after the events following Thanos’s “snap”, which eliminated fifty percent of the universe’s population. Hopeless, the remaining heroes find one final option to undo what was done… It is almost impossible to talk about this film without…

Review: Tag

I think someone just wanted to see Jeremy Renner do parkour. The premise of Tag is of five grown men who have been playing the same game of Tag for thirty years, despite having jobs and lives of their own. One of them though, has never been tagged. Moreover, it is “inspired” by true events….

Review: Arrival

Director Denis Villeneuve continues a startling winning streak with high-concept sci-fi Arrival. A language specialist has her life changed when the world is visited by twelve monolithic alien objects, hovering above the ground with no sign of intent. Brought in to try and communicate with the entities, she finds the experience and the trials inexplicably…

Review: Take

A very down to earth story about how empty and lost people’s lives can get. Take follows two strangers set on a collision course, Saul (played by Jeremy Renner) is a down on his luck unfortunate who finds himself in debt with the wrong people, and Ana (Minnie Driver) who is a struggling mother who…

Review: Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation proves to be both an exciting action movie and a Bond-esque intelligent thriller at the same time. Thoroughly enjoyed myself! The IMF squad is dissolved into the CIA in the wake of their cowboy, reckless antics that have laid waste to public and private property whenever they are involved. But…

Review: Hansel and Gretel – Witch Hunters

To be honest, there really isn’t that much to say about it, except that I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected! Following the events of the classic fairytale of Hansel and Gretel who survive their encounter with a witch inside a gingerbread house, we see the two siblings grown up, decked out in…

Review: The Bourne Legacy

An almighty cash-in, or for once a clever spin-off from the Bourne trilogy? I’m afraid mostly the former. Now I was suckered into the trailer for Legacy, and even the tagline: “There was never just one” I couldn’t argue against, after all, Matt Damon’s Jason Bourne was part of a super soldier program. Plus this…

Review: Avengers Assemble (2D)

There are four films this year I am banking on being at the top of my list and Avengers Assemble was the lesser. My god this is going to be a good year for movies! Marvel Studios colossal gamble in combining four of their major comic brands into one film was subject to feeling clustered…

Saga Review: Mission Impossible

I undertook the mission to review possibly one of the most awkward and least consistent film sagas out there, the Mission: Impossible movies! Asides from some similarities between films three and four, the only recurring element is Tom Cruise himself, and given the original film perhaps catapulted his career you cannot blame him for returning…
