The Top 10 actors we’d like to see join the Fast & Furious franchise

May 22, 2023

Over 22 years and 10 films (thus far), the Fast & Furious franchise has defied all expectations – and physics – and driven its players to constant peril, but ultimate safety, all in the name of family. With Fast X now riding high in cinemas across the globe (you can read our review here), in […]

Film Review: Channing Tatum is given a carnally romantic, welcomingly sensual send-off in Magic Mike’s Last Dance

February 8, 2023

In 2012’s Magic Mike, Channing Tatum‘s titular performer lamented that he didn’t want to be a “40 year old stripper”.  The irony isn’t lost some decade on where Tatum’s Mike, having seemingly failed at his planned custom furniture business, has to fall back on his expert set of skills.  And, as we would expect, the […]

Film Review: The Lost City is a playful romp elevated by the charm of Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum

April 6, 2022

Reminiscent of the studio mentality of days (years, even) gone by of when the star-driven comedy was enough of a draw to reel audiences in, Adam and Aaron Nee‘s throwback romp The Lost City serves as a healthy reminder that not all playful, high-concept comedies have to exist solely for the streaming services. Resuscitating the […]

Film Review: Dog is an emotionally investing feature that benefits from Channing Tatum’s charm and competence as a filmmaker

March 17, 2022

Whilst he never exactly went off the grid to warrant this a “comeback”, Channing Tatum certainly reminds us just why his likeable, some may say limitedly ranged persona was such a staple in the mid 2010’s with Dog.  Not only does it see the actor step back into leading man territory – somewhere he hasn’t […]

Magic Mike Live

Review: Is it hot in here? Magic Mike Live comes to Sydney

January 25, 2021

It is with no small amount of amusement that I tell you, Magic Mike Live has been one of the most difficult reviews I’ve ever had to write. It would be easy for me to sit here and wax lyrical about how attractive the dancers were (because they were) or how much the crowd of […]

Film Review: Logan Lucky (USA, 2017) is a calculated, charming caper

August 15, 2017

It’s been a few years since director Steven Soderbergh had a feature film on the big screen but with Logan Lucky he makes a welcome return in this rollicking comedy-heist. It would be easy to boil this down to a red-neck dirty overalls wearing, whiskey swigging, pick-up truck driving version of Soderbergh’s own hit Ocean’s […]

TV Review: Amazon’s Comrade Detective is a tough-sell of a show that manages to overcome its bizarre concept

August 4, 2017

In the 1980’s, Romanians would gather in record numbers in front of their TV sets to watch Comrade Detective.  Fronted by Florin Piersic, Jr as hard-nosed police detective Gregor Anghel, the series promised to be an action-heavy event that would both entertain its citizens whilst promoting communist ideals.  Sadly, after the collapse of the Berlin […]

Film Review: Magic Mike XXL (MA15+, USA, 2015)

July 8, 2015

So let’s get one thing straight from the get-go with this film, this is a movie about a bunch of “male entertainers” (aka strippers) so it’s a given that it’ll be a basic story and be overloaded with a lot of attractive semi-naked men in it. If you’re coming for anything more meaningful than that, […]

Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum fight for Earth in the new trailer for sci-fi epic Jupiter Ascending

September 28, 2014

Andy and Lana Wachowski have never achieved the same level of success as they did in 1999 when they unleashed The Matrix on the world. This is fair enough, given the fact that very few directors would ever be able to repeat the originality and mind-blowing innovation of a film as good the The Matrix. The Wachowskis […]

Film Review: 22 Jump Street (MA15+) (USA, 2014)

June 18, 2014

When it was first announced a few years ago that Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill would be starring in a comedy reboot of the popular 1980’s TV series 21 Jump Street, sceptics around the world raised their eyebrows.

New red band 22 Jump Street clip: “Going to College”

May 15, 2014

No-one really expected much from 21 Jump Street back in 2012. In the age of reboot fatigue, a reboot of a teen cop TV series from the 80’s didn’t sound like a great idea. Much to everyone’s surprise the film was a huge hit and one of the best comedies released in some time. The […]
