Monika

Best known as the international woman of mystery and the Chandler Bing among her friends. Monika grew up in a movie loving family in Europe, which meant she was not subjected to much censorship.  Her love of all things horror and action began very early on as a result.  Despite it all, she is not as big of an oddball as everyone (including family) originally predicted.   Thinks the term "chick flick" should be banned worldwide.

Divergent Review

Prior to seeing this movie I found it hard to ignore many other critics blasting the film.  People also kept comparing it to The Hunger Games, cutting reviews said that Divergent was neither exhilarating or as good. This left me a little apprehensive about Divergent but decided to go see it with zero expectations. First off, even though this is being compared to Hunger Games by a lot of people, it...

Cuban Fury Review

Leaving Simon Pegg behind for a little while, Nick Frost takes on a role that had him in training for months. A child dancing prodigy leaves the world of professional dance behind after he gets horribly bullied and beaten up. As an adult. Bruce Garrett resigned himself to being an ordinary “sad sack” office drone. But after meeting his beautiful new boss Julia, and learning about her love for sals...

Wolf Creek 2 Review

The first movie starts off at a slow pace, building up scares and the characters.  So if you are expecting the same from the sequel, you’ll be in for a surprise. We already know Mick, his hatred for “foreign vermin”, his love for torture and killing, so this movie chooses to delve more into Mick’s deranged psyche.  Wolf Creek 2 is intense and fast paced, not allowing the viewer to feel comfortable...

Winter’s Tale Review

Based on Mark Helprin’s beloved 1983 novel, and adapted by Oscar-winning screenwriter-turned-director Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), Winter’s Tale tells a story of supernatural beings and fairy tale romance. It spans from present day Manhattan and early 20th century New York to tell a love story between a thief by the name of Peter Lake (Colin Farrell), and the daughter of a wealth...

47 Ronin Review

This film arrived on Australian shores with flop and bad stamped all over it.  It’s been a massive box office failure in the US and most critics have partaken in the heavily ladled abuse dumped on this film before it was even released.  So does it deserve all the negativity? 47 Ronin tells a story of a band of samurai who have lost their master. After being exiled from their home, they set out to ...

The Spectacular Now Review

A prizewinner at the Sundance Film Festival, Spectacular Now is an alt-teen entry in the world of teen films, though many have claimed, it doesn’t quite reinvent the genre. The film does explore the issues of teenage alcoholism, love and the balance between either being careless, or living for the future, without the usual glamourising we are used to seeing.  Based upon the novel by Tim Thar...

Carrie Review

I can’t say I was excited for this movie and the trailers released did nothing to change that. I, along with many, thought the original should have been left alone.  With that being said, I could understand the re-imagining, after all, bullying is such a prominent issue at this day and age. You could easily update this story and make it relevant to new audience. Let me start off by saying, this fi...

Fly Me to the Moon

When it comes to romantic comedies these days, it takes a lot to impress, especially with the rate in which they seemed to be churned out by studios. A good rom-com is rare. So the question is, does this movie hit the spot?! Fly Me to the Moon (Un Plan Parfait) is a French romantic comedy created by Heartbreak director Pascal Chaumeil, starring Diane Kruger and Danny Boon. Kruger’s character...

Bullock plays Dr Stone, a medical engineer on her first mission, with experienced astronaut Kowalsky, played by Clooney. During their mission, disaster strikes,  leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone fightin...

Rush Review

Rush tells the true story of the fierce rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda, starting from their beginning in Formula 3,  all the way to their Formula 1 days in 1976, where both of their lives changed. Director Ron Howard once again teams with screenwriter Peter Morgan, and together they create not only a full on action film, but a character piece as well. I had minimal knowledge of Formula ...
