Netflix Review – ‘The Old Guard’

Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Greg Rucka and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (Beyond The Lights), The Old Guard is a gritty, grounded, action-packed story that shows living forever is harder than it looks. With twists and turns lurking around every corner, Prince-Bythewood finds a way to keep the film grounded for the small […]

Netflix Review – ‘The Lovebirds’

Only a handful of romantic action comedies are actually memorable. After 2020’s pandemic put a halt on all theatrical releases, Paramount Pictures made a deal with Netflix and ‘The Lovebirds‘ has now finally been released, six weeks later than initially planned. A lot of fun is to be had, but let’s make one thing clear, […]

Netflix Review – ‘Coffee & Kareem’

Let me make one thing clear, just because this film stars a 12-year-old teaming up with an incompetent cop, doesn’t make this a film for teens. It’s highly inappropriate, vulgar and violent AF. But guess what, ‘Coffee & Kareem’ is Netflix’s ‘Good Boys‘ – a film in which three teenagers find a bag of drugs […]

Review – ‘The Hunt’

Pushed back from its September 27 release date last year, without any real reason given by Universal Pictures and Blumhouse, ‘The Hunt‘ finally finds an audience on VOD after a limited theatrical release – due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Promoting it as “the most talked movie of the year that no one’s actually seen” is […]

Review – ‘Bad Boys For Life’

After 17 years, Martin Lawrence and Will Smith are back for one last ride.

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 – ‘Playmobil: The Movie’

After the huge success LEGO had at the box office with films such as ‘The Lego Movie‘ and ‘The Lego Batman Movie‘, the in some ways similar German toy brand ‘Playmobil’ announced production on their very own first cinematic adventure, in honour of the toy line’s 45th anniversary. When her younger brother Charlie (Gabriel Bateman) […]

Review – ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’

“I’ll be back.” – Sarah Connor Let’s forget about everything that happened after ‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day‘ back in 1991, and make a decent sequel. That was probably producer James Cameron and director Tim Miller‘s agreement. Not that I didn’t like the oh-so-campy and over-the-top ‘Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines‘, but it ain’t no […]
