Review: Ready Player One

An eclectic, computer generated action sequence, the TRON of a new generation… it actually made me feel old. In 2045, society has almost completely collapsed with over-population, people live in shanty towns made of re-purposed trash and vehicles stacked on top of each other. But people escape this near-dystopian society within a sprawling virtual reality…

Review: The Post

Spielberg can make a great film from filming paint dry, and The Post is very deliberately made in this day and age of political anxiety. A widow is placed in charge of The Washington Post newspaper firm after her husband passed away, taking on the responsibility of a legacy just when strongly guarded Government secrets…

Review: The BFG (2D)

The BFG is a very humble, slow and Dahl experience! I enjoyed it, but only because I am familiar with the story. Sophie is a girl living in a London orphanage who has her life turned upside down when a Big Friendly Giant takes her to the Land of Giants. Based off of the Roald…

Set over twenty years since John Hammond’s theme park extravaganza Jurassic Park was utterly destroyed when the reborn dinosaur exhibits broke loose, Jurassic World follows a…

Review: Lincoln

Steven Spielberg is probably the only man who could take a subject matter as dry as politics and as well known as Lincoln’s victory over the 13th amendment and make it worth watching for over one-hundred and fifty minutes. Daniel Day Lewis gives a powerhouse performance as the United States sixteenth President as he deals…

Review: Warhorse

Spielberg is back at it again; tugging our heartstrings and does it with great ease. Yes, I do have a sentimental streak! War Horse is a film adaptation of a stage play based from a children’s book of the same name, and follows the traumatic adventures of a young man and a horse he befriends…
