The Day Shall Come Review

It is my opinion that the principal aim of a film should be to entertain the viewer; however, it is also the job of a film, occasionally, to educate. To me, Film is at its best when it’s holding a mirror up to society and showing us its darkest recesses. That’s why films like Taxi…

Joker Review

It’s not an understatement to call The Joker the greatest comic-book character of all time, at least in my opinion. What Batman lacks in personality, Joker makes up for in spades, not only that, but because of this character we’ve had some of the greatest portrayals of superhero cinema; names such as Jack Nicholson, Mark…

Judy Review

With the release of this and Joker this week, I think it’s fair to say that we are entering the early stages of “awards season”. Both had a lot of hype coming out of the tail end of the festival season and with the wide release it’s fair to say that the awards train has…

So, you’d think that a film version of the wildly popular…

Rambo: Last Blood Review

Ad Astra Review

There are almost infinite possibilities with a space film. Space is unique in its isolation and pure untapped terror, seeing how little we know about it and what inhabits the quadrillions of light year’s of space that it has to offer. The past few years have been kind to us in this area, films like…
