Film Review: The Fabelmans; this is Spielberg’s story, and we’re privileged to be along for the ride

December 29, 2022

“Mommy and Daddy will be right next to you the whole time.” From the opening line of dialogue in Steven Spielberg‘s The Fabelmans, an autobiographical coming-of-age tale that boasts itself as his first writing credit since A.I. some two decades prior, we get a sense of what’s to come as, outside a New Jersey movie house in the early […]

Series Review: Pam & Tommy is an engaging, humorous, though surprisingly emotional insight into the infamous sex tape

January 31, 2022

Over the last year there’s been a heavy re-examination regarding the critical response the media placed upon women in the public eye.  Recent documentaries about Britney Spears and Janet Jackson have truly bought the discussion into a manner that extends beyond their fandom, and something like Pam & Tommy, as exaggerated at times it is, […]

Film Review: The Lion King is beautiful to watch but lacks the full roar

July 17, 2019

We all know that Disney reworking its own animated films into “live action” remakes is purely for the box office dollars. Those of us old enough to remember the originals, having seen them in the cinema, and blasting the soundtracks into our subconscious and poring over every bit of dialogue, are all too aware. What […]

Film Review: Long Shot (US, 2019) could be the year’s biggest surprise package

May 4, 2019

All romantic comedies require some suspension of disbelief from an audience. These films often exist in a world of hyper-reality where two polar opposite characters somehow fall madly in love with each other. When a studio offers up something like Long Shot, a romantic comedy starring Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen, it’s hard not to raise […]

First Impressions: Future Man is unmissable television; a keen mix of hilarity and moreish action

June 7, 2018

Future Man, starring Josh Hutcherson and produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg is an action comedy series that has genuinely flown under the radar since its release on Hulu in the US back in November.

Film Review: Sausage Party (MA15+) (USA, 2016) is hilariously fun and… thought-provoking?

August 12, 2016

Seth Rogen has always been associated with stoner humour and raunchy comedy, but in the case of Sausage Party, he takes it to a whole new level. With animated films that have anthropomorphised objects like toys (i.e. the Toy Story films) and cars (i.e. Cars), Rogen had the idea to anthropomorphise consumer products while retaining […]

Film Review: Bad Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising (MA15+) (USA)

May 5, 2016

There are very few sequels that can better the original, and in the case of comedies, even less so. Films like Ghostbusters 2, the Hangover sequels, the American Pie films and others all failed to capture and improve on what made the originals successful in the first place. When I watched Bad Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising, […]
