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 – ‘The Lighthouse’

Robert Eggers‘ The Lighthouse could’ve easily been perceived a classic film from about a century ago. It isn’t just disturbingly strange and undeniably tense, this original fantasy gothic horror also has some pitch-black comedy blended in. It’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before – and that in 2020? Two lighthouse keepers try to maintain their […]

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 […]

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 […]

Netflix Review – ‘You’ Season 2

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 – ‘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 […]
