Movie Review: Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

There is a concern among (movie) critics: big movie studios have been producing, shooting and releasing more and more mediocre movies. More often than not these movies are reboots (of reboots), re-iterations, (bad) sequels or (worse) prequels of what is/was considered to have been a good movie way back when. Though some of these reboots […]

Movie Review: Gerald’s Game (2017)

It is just raining King adaptations this year, isn’t it? First we got The Dark Tower, followed by It- part one, now Netflix released Gerald’s Game with 1922 yet to come.

Movie Review: It, Part 1 (2017)

More than any other writer Stephen King has shaped the way we imagine horror for the last 40 years. The stories of Carrie, The Shining and It (to name but a few) are deeply embedded in the public consciousness, both because of the enduring popularity of the books but also because of highly regarded film […]

Movie Review: The Nice Guys (2016)

Who didn’t love the action movies from the late 80’s? I know I did and fortunately I had parents who gave fuck all about R ratings because I was way too young to watch most of the shit I watched back then. Lethal Weapon immediately comes to mind. Though maybe my pubescent mind might not […]

Review: SPECTRE (2015)

It takes a lot of effort to keep a movie franchise going for over 50 years. Times change, tastes change and so to keep the James Bond movies fresh, EON kept reinventing the series every 10-15 years. With Daniel Craig’s debut in Casino Royal in 2006 we were introduced to a grittier Bond that struck a […]

Review Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Out here everything hurts… Its been quite a few years since we last saw Mad Max in action in Beyond Thunderdome (1985). Director George Miller had been shopping a fourth movie around since the early 2000’s but various reasons led to the film not entering production. He persisted though and Fury Road is finally upon […]
