Review – 'Seberg'

“Who is Jean Seberg?”, many might ask. Seberg was an American actress who lived half her life in France. Her performance in Jean-Luc Godard‘s 1960 film Breathless immortalised her as an icon of French New Wave cinema. Now, Hollywood has found the perfect actress in Kristen Stewart, to portray her and the real events of the […]

Prime Video Review – 'Troop Zero'

After its premiere at Sundance Film Festival, in early 2019, Troop Zero went on to screen at a couple of American film festivals, until it premiered just recently on Amazon’s streaming service, Prime Video. It tells the story of a misfit girl in rural 1977 Georgia, who dreams of life in outer space. When a […]

Review – 'Underwater'

Sci-fi thrillers have a bad reputation when it comes to making money at the box office. They’re either extremely well made and praised by critics all over the globe, some also get totally crushed by the competition in the same opening weekend, others are just complete and utter trash. ‘Underwater‘, bringing absolutely nothing original to […]

Review – 'Bad Boys For Life'

After 17 years, Martin Lawrence and Will Smith are back for one last ride. The original Bad Boys launched Michael Bay‘s (Transformers) career as a director of highly explosive action blockbusters, but it’s Belgian directing duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah who get a shot at directing their first big budget Hollywood film. One […]

Review – 'The Gentlemen'

The rather unconventional visionary Guy Ritchie has been stuck in a Hollywood rut for the last ten years, ever since he committed to big budget, visual effects heavy films, such as Sherlock Holmes, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and this year’s underwhelming live action version of the classic Disney, ‘Aladdin‘. The British director goes […]

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, […]
