Mardi Gras Film Festival Review – ‘Top 3’

Swedish animated film Top 3, part of this this year’s Mardi Gras Film Festival program, is straightforward and tells its story in a very unique way. In this funny, bittersweet romantic comedy, perpetual list-maker Anton (Eric Ernerstedt) falls in love with David (Jonas Jonsson), but things start to go awry when Anton realises that his […]

Review – ‘The Peanut Butter Falcon’

First time full feature film directors and writers Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz bring a subtle commentary on social care, to what seems to be just your typical feel good film. In doing so, they’ve crafted not just an incredibly enthralling gem of a film, but also one that lingers in your mind long after […]

Review – ‘A Hidden Life’

“We lived above the clouds.” – Fani Jägerstätter Director Terrence Malick isn’t known for his very straight forward story telling methods. Surprisingly ‘A Hidden Life‘ is his most mainstream film in years. In saying that, he doesn’t necessarily let go of his visionary filmmaking strategy, but makes it more approachable for audiences who unknowingly sit […]

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 […]
