Review – Love, Victor Season 2

After season one’s open ending where Victor finally gathers all the courage to come out to his parents and sister, season two picks up right where we left off to then jump ahead in time. With that the creators also seem to have thrown overboard the innocent teenage feel of season one, and go for …

Review – Vanquish

Directed by the writer of Bad Boys, Middle Men and Code Name: The Cleaner comes Vanquish, a movie so empty it evaporates from your mind before you blink.

German Film Festival 2021 Review – Berlin Alexanderplatz

For someone who has never read Alfred Döblin’s classic German novel or watched the series, this modernised version of Berlin Alexanderplatz was an interesting experience. Not only does it tackle very relevant themes, it’s a saga in the life of one man, who gets used and swallowed by a climate that’s chosen the life he’s …

Review – Initiation

People who know me, know 90’s classic slasher Scream is my favourite film of all time. I love it so much, I end up comparing every other slasher flick with it. Initiation was no exception, and I have to admit – this was pretty good. The movie takes place at Whiton University, where a case …

Review – Drunk Bus

We’ve all been on a midnight bus after a fun night out, and seen things that defy explanation. Imagine driving that bus every night where college kids rule the streets. That’s what Drunk Bus is basically about, and for the most part delivers a heartfelt and original story. Michael (Charlie Tahan – Ozark) is a …

Review – Finding You

P1440422.RW2 Finding You is the type of film you put on on a rainy Sunday afternoon. The type of romantic comedy of which there are plenty and doesn’t reinvent the genre. It’s a film that knows its target audience and that’s where it’ll find most of its praise. Finley (Katherine McNamara – ‘The Stand’), a …

Review – Silo

Marshall Burnette’s feature directorial debut Silo, which is inspired by true events, is not your typical rural drama. What starts as a seemingly peaceful day in an American farm town, turns into a race against the clock when a teenager becomes the victim of a grain entrapment accident. Heavy metal fanatic Cody (Jack DiFalco – …

Review – Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse

Michael B. Jordan stars in WITHOUT REMORSE Photo: Nadja Klier © 2020 Paramount Pictures Tom Clancy and international conspiracies. Nothing groundbreaking. Even Co-writer Taylor Sheridan, well known for Hell Or High Water, and personal underrated favourite, Wind River, can’t save what’s been done so many times before. After John Kelly’s (Michael B. Jordan – Just …
