Film Review: Wilson (USA, 2017) lacks both pattern and personality

May 25, 2017

Film Review: Now You See Me 2 (USA, 2016)

June 1, 2016

The first Now You See Me had a thrifty premise and a slick cast but was let down by a last-minute plot twist that was, quite literally, almost-unbelievable. The second film,  while disappointingly not called either Now You See Me Too or Now You Don’t, settles a more evenly-spread acceptance of the impossible. However, if the series’ previous […]

March 17, 2016

A sequel the 2013 magician-thriller, Now You See Me 2 has a new trailer. It remains a great shame that they didn’t just name the film Now You Don’t  – but this new trailer provides a  bit more context for what the film is about beyond providing an excuse for Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson to break the […]
