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 […]

Following on from Peter’s review earlier this week, our own Harris Dang tells us why the latest installment in the John Wick series is a five star slice of nirvana for fans of action cinema… John Wick – Chapter 4 continues the story of our titular anti-hero (Keanu Reeves), who is currently at his lowest […]

Film Review: John Wick: Chapter 4 continues to push the boundaries of the action genre’s capabilities with a grand, operatic manus

March 23, 2023

It’s hard to believe that, at one point, 2014’s John Wick was practically considered dead on arrival.  A combination of unproven directors (eventual franchise mainstay Chad Stahelski and uncredited “co-director” David Leitch), a screenwriter with only a duo of barely-registered titles under him (Derek Kolstad), and a lead actor with a slew of underperforming box […]

Film Review: The Matrix Resurrections toes the line between familiarity and freshness as it reconsiders reality

December 22, 2021

Few movies from 1999 can boast as much as The Matrix.  A groundbreaking effort, both in terms of its special effects and its allegoric mentality, The Wachowski‘s post-apocalyptic, philosophical action film pushed the boundaries of modern cinema, exceeding audience expectation in the process. Maintaining a cultural relevance in the decades since essentially allows such a […]

Interview: Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Jessica Henwick on The Matrix Resurrections

December 22, 2021

Nearly 20 years after it was released, The Matrix still remains a culturally relevant blueprint for which other genre films are based on.  Breaking boundaries and expectations in the decades since, with such bold efforts as Cloud Atlas and Jupiter Ascending, director Lana Wachowski has returned to the very IP that launched a phenomenon with […]

Film Review: Bill & Ted Face the Music is a genuinely joyous slice of nostalgia that proves worth the wait for long-standing fans

September 8, 2020

As someone who was a kid when the first two Bill & Ted films were released (Excellent Adventure in 1989, Bogus Journey in 1991), and watched them on a regular basis throughout my childhood, I’m very much in the target demographic for the unexpected sequel that is Bill & Ted Face the Music.  As 1980’s-leaning […]

Film Review: Toy Story 4 tailors its heart and humour to audiences across the board

June 19, 2019

If you’ve asked yourself why Disney and Pixar bothered making Toy Story 4, you are not alone. With 2010’s Toy Story 3 serving as the perfect ending to the series, this fourth go-around felt more like a cash-grab than an organic continuation, and though the series as a whole has been that rare breed of […]

Film Review: Netflix’s To the Bone (USA, 2017) will create controversy, but succeeds with strong cast and direction

July 12, 2017

Films containing subject matter of death or disease, particularly the ones that aim for a teenage audience, tend to be sappy (like My Sister’s Keeper), melodramatic and even deeply misguided, if done wrong. I tend to cringe whenever I hear about another film tacking such subject, but in the case of Netflix’s To the Bone […]

Film Review: John Wick: Chapter Two (USA, 2017) proves itself a very serviceable sequel

May 16, 2017

From comedic roles like his iconic slacker character, Ted “Theodore” Logan to the action heroes like Jack Traven from Speed and Neo from The Matrix films; dramatic roles like in River’s Edge and Hardball; and even villainous roles like in The Gift and Man of Tai Chi, Keanu Reeves is far more versatile an actor than he’s often given credit for. You certainly can’t […]

Watch Neo and Morpheus reunite in the latest teaser for John Wick: Chapter 2

October 12, 2016

Liam Neeson’s endeavour to find his daughter seems almost trivial when compared to the inexorable force of Keanu Reeves as John Wick, seeking vengeance for the murder of his Beagle puppy named Daisy. John Wick will return in 2017 after the original sleeper hit snowballed into one of the most memorable action films of its […]

Film Review: John Wick (USA, 2014)

October 30, 2014

The last major film Keanu Reeves starred in was the abysmal 47 Ronin, a project which took Keanu out of his element and demanded from him more than he could actually give. David Leitch and Chad Stahelski’s John Wick is an entirely different story, playing to Reeves’ strengths and giving him his best role in […]

Film Review: 47 Ronin (M) (USA, 2014)

January 19, 2014

It’s been quite some time since we’ve seen Keanu Reeves in a Hollywood blockbuster; it’s been even longer since he’s been in a decent film. Reeves’ famously silent, wooden way of acting has always been strangely endearing, but in Carl Rinsch’s 47 Ronin, his presence is lacking as he quietly broods throughout the film, occasionally […]
