Everything Everywhere All At Once Review

EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE is a time-bending ride through multiple universes. Evelyn Wang (Michelle Yeoh) is a woman in her late fifties. She runs a laundromat business with her husband Waymond (Key Huy Quan). They are currently under pressure because the IRS want a review of the couple’s taxes. Previously, Evelyn attempted to cut corners in this process and this has brought the Wangs to th...

Morbius Review

I’m not entirely sure what goes on at those culty gatherings hosted on MarsIsland (perhaps an Elizabeth Báthory approach to skincare) but it seems to work for probable real-life vampire Jared Leto, whose inability to age is, at this point, slightly concerning. It’s a shame, then, that his dedication to acting is not given the same priority as his quest for eternal youth. Known for going way too ha...

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Review

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2 is obviously the sequel movie to Sonic the Hedgehog. For those of you who have had other things to do in the two years since the original film premiered on world screens, Sonic the Hedgehog (original recipe) was an adaptation of the Sega video game of the same name, which was released back in 1991. Back then, Sega was searching for a game and a mascot. The Japanese company wan...

The Matrix Resurrections Review

THE MATRIX RESURRECTIONS is the fourth film in the Matrix franchise which began with THE MATRIX (1999) followed by THE MATRIX RELOADED (2003) and THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS (2003). The new story apparently begins twenty-years after the events of the third film and sees the heroic figure Neo (Keanu Reeves) returned as an older version of his original identity of Thomas Anderson. Anderson is middle-aged...

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Review

When a single mom and her two kids arrive in a small town, they begin to discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind. Ghostbusters returns to cinemas with its new instalment ‘Afterlife’, this time not as a reboot but as a new installment to the series that started in 1984 and continued with its second film in 1989. This time around Jas...

Spider-Man: No Way Home Review

After the events of Spider-Man: Far From Home, the secret identity of our friendly neighbourhood etc etc (Tom Holland) has been plastered all over by newshound J. Jonah Jameson (J. K. Simmons), exposing Peter Parker to public vitriol and his friends and loved ones – girlfriend MJ (Zendaya), best friend Ned (Jacob Batalon), and Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) – to danger. What’s a webhead to do but seek ou...

Don’t Look Up Review

Two obscure astronomers, grad student Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence) and her supervisor, Dr Randall Mindy (Leonardo DiCaprio) detect a comet heading straight for Earth. The numbers are incontrovertible; it’s a planet killer, destined to wipe out humanity. They take the info to the authorities, only to smack up against indifference, disbelief, and political self-interest, chiefly from President ...

Dune Review

Twenty-thousand years in the future, humans have travelled widely through space and live on numerous worlds. Society has returned to a feudal model of royalty and empire, except these now stretch across star systems.  Royal families run corporations and fight amongst themselves for favours from the Emperor, who is the greatest of all powers.  He rules the Intergalactic Imperium. Duke Leto (Oscar I...

Venom: Let There Be Carnage Review

I recall a boozy Saturday night spent watching 2018’s Venom with some fondness. A kind soul had lent us the 4K Blu-ray but the bad word of mouth led to its addition to the pile of great unwatched. It wasn’t until we moved house and the rest of our movie collection was boxed up that we finally gave the alien comic book flick a shot, and perhaps it was the gin’s doing but I found myself pleasantly s...

Reminiscence Review

REMINISCENCE is set in a near-future Miami, that is a dying, semi-flooded city. The United States is in political and economic trouble, with corruption being an everyday reality. The poor are struggling, and the rich have bought-up the best places to live, literally known as the Dry Lands. Nick Bannister (Hugh Jackman) is an investigator who helps clients find missing objects and remember importan...

Free Guy Review

Ryan Reynolds is a slave to the game in Free Guy, the new film by director Shawn Levy and from Disney subsidiary 20th Century Studios (née Fox.) He plays a humble bank teller and non-playable character in video game Free City trying to earn free will, become the hero and save the game from shutdown after it is revealed that the game’s quirky and arrogant creator Antoine (Taika Waititi) plans on sc...

Army of the Dead Review

After a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, the city is walled off and abandoned to the undead. While the displaced citizens hunker in rundown refugee camps outside the perimeter wall, a veritable army of the dead throngs the Strip. Not to worry, though: a quick tactical nuke will soon be taking care of the problem. That is rather inconvenient for billionaire Bly Tanaka (Hiroyuki Sanada), as he has $200...
