Film Review: Firestarter plays accordingly to Stephen King’s more sci-fi leaning novel

May 12, 2022

When Stephen King published Firestarter in 1980 it was celebrated for its complex, character driven storyline, accolades that shouldn’t have really come as a surprise given the impressive body of work he had achieved in the 6 short years he was a published novelist; 1974’s Carrie was his first release. With that and The Shining […]

Film Review: The Greatest Showman (USA, 2017) is cheery lunacy that revels in its attempt to call back on the positive musicals of the past

December 25, 2017

Going for broke and wearing its heart on its sleeve for all to appreciate, The Greatest Showman is a corny yet engaging musical that embraces its overt positivity with stride. An enthusiastically romanticised telling of how legendary American showman P.T. Barnum (portrayed by a wholly committed Hugh Jackman) worked his way from rags to riches […]

Film Review: Baywatch (MA15+) (USA, 2017) is campy fun, but wipes out on the comedy wave early on

May 31, 2017

Ever since the first trailer was released, Baywatch has always been self-aware. The wind in a golden-blondes hair as she runs down the beach (obviously in slow motion) in the iconic red bathing suit is an image the new reboot has embraced, but it doesn’t fare well in a feature length film. To put it […]

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, […]

Film Review: Are We Officially Dating? (MA15+) (USA, 2014)

February 12, 2014

Date movies are a given every Valentine’s Day. Usually doomed romances or wildly unrealistic melodramas, they serve their purpose for that one day of the year and are more often than not instantly forgotten. Despite what its When Harry Met Sally inspired poster suggests, Are We Officially Dating? (aka. That Awkward Moment) is a welcome alternative to the normal Valentine’s […]
