Netflix Review – 'You' Season 2

The first season of ‘You‘ became a sleeper hit for Netflix. Based on Caroline Kepnes‘ 2014 thriller novel of the same name, ‘You‘ follows the life of a dangerously charming, intensely obsessive young man who will go to extreme measures to insert himself into the lives of those he is transfixed by. Season 2 has […]

Stan Originals Review – 'The Commons: Season 1'

Set in a very familiar future, the Stan Original Series The Commons is a gripping character-driven relationship drama and a story about motherhood as the ultimate act of faith in humanity. If it wasn’t for the futuristic technicalities, this somewhat too frighteningly realistic series could take place in today’s Sydney, going through climate change. Taking us into a […]

Netflix Review – 'Lost in Space: Season 2'

Seven months after the events in the exhilarating ending of Lost in Space‘s first season, the Robinson family got stranded with their Jupiter 2 on a mysterious ocean planet without their beloved Robot.

Review – 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker'

After more than 40 years and eight chapters of Star Wars, the Skywalker-saga comes to an end with episode IX. J.J. Abrams is back to direct this final chapter, after passing the torch to Rian Johnson in 2017, who divided the fandom with his ‘The Last Jedi‘. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is an […]

Review – 'Cats'

“Cats are not dogs” – Deuteronomy Tom Hooper, best known for his Oscar-winning film version of the smash hit musical ‘Les Misérables‘, has made an oddly mesmerising big screen version of Andrew Lloyd Webber‘s well known stage musical ‘Cats‘. With actors fully covered in what was supposed to look like realistic CGI-fur, its paper thin […]

Review – 'Jojo Rabbit'

A film in which an imaginary Adolf Hitler is played by a Polynesian Jew? Only one person has the balls to pull this off. Taika Waititi‘s anti-hate satire makes fun of nazi-Germany and its hitlerjugend in his newest film, Jojo Rabbit. Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis),a teenage boy who wants to become the best fascist there […]

Review – 'Jumanji: The Next Level'

Where ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle‘ was a genuine surprise full of wonderful twists and unexpected turns that also acknowledged the original board game film by playing homage to it, ‘The Next Level’ feels like a watered down rehash of what we’ve all seen before. Once again, Jumanji is ready to battle Star Wars at […]

Review – 'Bombshell'

“What the FOX?” This bombshell couldn’t have dropped at a better time. The #MeToo movement has been in full force for a couple of years now, with victims coming forward and sharing their horrific experiences around sexual harassment. What happened in 2016 at Fox News, gets dramatised to make it more appealing for moviegoing audiences, […]

Review – '1917'

Sam Mendes‘ war drama is set during World War I and very personal to him, as it tells a story his grandfather used to tell him when he was still a young lad. Dedicated to Mendes’ hero, this drama cuts deep when we join two young soldiers on a mission to deliver a message that […]

Review – 'Black Christmas'

“Did you just ‘not all men’ me?” – Kris 1974’s slasher flick ‘Black Christmas‘ is a classically overlooked horror in which a group of sorority girls get stalked during the titular holiday period. When 2006’s unnecessary trashy remake got critically slammed, it was a big surprise when producer Jason Blum announced another remake to be […]
