REVIEW – RAMBO

I have to be honest, I’ve seen most of Sly Stallone’s movies, but I haven’t seen a Rambo film. From what I knew Rambo (the character) was some sort of survival style guide. So upon viewing the latest installment, Rambo: Last Blood it does a good job in revisiting Rambo’s past and giving little nuggets…

REVIEW: POKÉMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU

Well developed story to be enjoyed by the whole family. Surprisingly held our attention from start to finish. Justice Smith did a really great job in a role we could relate to, and contrary to what we initially thought Ryan Reynolds made a pretty good Pikachu. I know, right?! We’re hoping there’s more to come…

REVIEW: SHAZAM!

I’m going to start by saying, I think Shazam! was a tad too long. I also wasn’t as much of a fan as I thought I’d be of Zachary Levi as Shazam. Something just didn’t work. However, Warner Bros. have proven again that they succeed in casting great performers in the younger roles. Much like…

REVIEW – FIVE FEET APART

Walking into the cinema, I knew very little regarding the film Five Feet Apart. I knew a bit about the actors and that potentially it would be quite a tear-jerker. I found this film was a beautiful, informative story, looking at the realities of life with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). We are introduced to Stella (Haley…

REVIEW: AQUAMAN

Aquaman is a cinematic feast for the eyes. One of our favourite DC heroes is brought to life not just by Jason Momoa’s performance, but by the vision of director James Wan. Standout performances by Nicole Kidman (Atlanna) and Amber Heard (Mera) who had some well crafted fight sequences. The mastery when it came to…

REVIEW – THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME

I’ve always enjoyed comedies surrounding the spy genre, so when we were invited to watch The Spy Who Dumped Me we set to practicing our super cool Spy poses. With great success. So we combat rolled our way down to Event Cinemas in the city to watch The Spy Who Dumped Me (TSWDM) starring Mila…

REVIEW – READY PLAYER ONE

I have to say there have been quite a substantial amount of really good films released lately. Ready Player One is one of them. To say I enjoyed this film would be an understatement. From start to finish it was a wild ride. You got so much out of the two hours and twenty minutes…

REVIEW – THE GREATEST SHOWMAN

Having grown up loving musicals I’m always interested in seeing how modern creatives take up the mantle. We know the Golden era of Hollywood to consist of really tight, well choreographed, at times upbeat, fast paced, overall classic musicals. In today’s age, we don’t see as many musicals brought to life on screen. Not to…

REVIEW – JUSTICE LEAGUE

To say I was channelling Sirius Black from Harry Potter when he says, “I did my waiting, 12 years of it…” would be an understatement. I’ve been fan of the Justice League for over 15 years and I distinctly remember around 10 years ago hearing talk of a possible Justice League film. Finally, we have…

REVIEW – KINGSMAN THE GOLDEN CIRCLE

Having loved the original Kingsman I was so excited to learn there was a second in the works. I had no idea how they would approach the new film considering Harry (Colin Firth) was no longer in the picture. The first film established Eggsy (Taron Egerton) as the lead in the next chapter of the…
