[REVIEW] Her

I felt a lot of pressure (mainly self-imposed) for my first review on the site, I wanted it to be a channelling of my essence, an un-biased yet passionate sermon on modern art, adored by masses and studied for years to come. In pursuit of the perfect subject matter I went to see the mesmerising […]

[FILM REVIEW] THE LEGO MOVIE

In an industry that’s becoming bogged down with sequels, comic book adaptations and similarly unoriginal fare, you could be forgiven for anticipating a film based around LEGO as nothing more than a glorified advertisement for toys and upcoming Warner Bros films. On the face of it, The LEGO Movie is a film based on a […]

[FILM REVIEW] 12 YEARS A SLAVE

The topic of slavery is a sensitive one, rife with emotion, tragedy and injustice. Not many film makers would dare delve into the topics shocking core. Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained was effectively about slavery, but with an overcoat of comedic and stylised action elements to maintain enjoyment and conceal the depressing nature of slavery. Steve […]

[FILM REVIEW] Frozen

Disney’s film division is riding a giant wave of success of late, with its own Marvel Studios churning out intriguing comic book adaptations and the impending release of a new Star Wars saga. However, it is still nice to see them release movies that are fun people of all ages and interests, such as Frozen. […]

[FILM REVIEW] ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES

The original Anchorman achieved practically everything a comedy film should set out to achieve; it’s fantastically memorable, endlessly quotable, wonderfully irreverent and, of course, side-splittingly funny. It’s arguably Will Ferrell’s greatest work, one which he hasn’t even come close to matching since its release in 2004, and looms imposingly over the comedy genre like some […]

[FILM REVIEW] THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG

The last 12 months has probably gone quicker than the opening 40 minutes of last year’s first installment in Peter Jackson’s adaptation of The Hobbit, which is just as well, because for many the wait for the follow-up has been unbearable after the epic yet inevitably unsatisfying conclusion to Bilbo’s unexpected journey. This time around, […]

[FILM REVIEW] Gravity

The feeling of being in space has always been a curiosity of mine. The silence, the sense of freedom and accomplishment, the sense of fear and abandonment. My curiosity was put to rest after viewing ‘Gravity’. The narrative entails two astronauts Ryan and Matt, played by Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, as they try to […]

[FILM REVIEW] Thor: The Dark World

When Iron Man first hit cinemas in 2008, nobody would’ve predicted the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Iron Man duology, Thor, Captain America and (maybe) The Incredible Hulk all set the stage for the big team up in last year’s Avengers: Assemble. Parting ways after saving the planet, Earth’s mightiest heroes now have problems of […]
