It Chapter 2

It: Chapter Two

It’s difficult to overstate the enormity of 2017’s It, now perhaps best referred to as It: Chapter One. For financial reasons, it’s something of a milestone, having broken The Exorcist’s long-standing...

Brad Pitt and Leonard Diacprio in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Movie Preview

Quentin Tarantino isn’t exactly making it easy for anyone to defend him at the moment. That’s not particularly new, but back in his early heyday during the ‘90s, he was such a star filmmaker (arguably...

Toy Story 4 Preview

Toy Story 4

To some, simply a relic of childhood nostalgia. To others, one of the most well-made and cohesive film trilogies of all time. Regardless of who you are, the vast influence of Toy Story on the film ind...

Frozen 2

Frozen 2

The trailer for Frozen 2, the sequel to 2013’s surprisingly popular semi-adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s story ‘The Snow Queen’, looks good. That comes as something of a shock for me, consider...

Knives Out

Knives Out

Of all the graduations from indie festival star to blockbuster helmsman the film industry has seen in the past decade (Gareth Edwards’ leap from a $500,000 budget on Monsters to a paltry $160 million ...

Gemini Man

Gemini Man

Where once multiple actors or questionable prosthetics were employed to represent a character at different stages of their life, now CGI does all the legwork. De-aging technology has grown from a tool...

1917 Movie

1917

Christopher Nolan has certainly broken ground in popular cinema, introducing explicit, complex themes of consciousness and temporal physics into blockbusters that regularly bring in a hefty sum for hi...

Le Mans '66

Ford Vs Ferrari Preview

It feels rather inexplicable that a journeyman director like James Mangold now has the power to do whatever he wants. But after delivering 20th Century Fox a film like Logan, perfectly timed to stand ...

It Chapter Two

IT Chapter Two

It was the best of times, It was the worst of times. Andy Muschietti’s decision to untangle the non-linear narrative of Stephen King’s book has yielded one pretty good piece of pop horror and one over...

The Crown S3

The Crown Series 3

Can I let you in on a little secret? Come closer, so nobody will hear. Ready? (Whispers) I really like The Crown. I know: crazy, isn’t it? A guy who has a professed dislike of the monarchy has quite h...

HBO Watchmen

Watchmen

The screen wasn’t kind to Watchmen in 2009. The comic book is one of the medium’s masterpieces; the film, whose ambition I certainly respect, is only superficially interesting. It’s among Zack Snyder’...

Birds of Prey Preview

Birds of Prey

Maybe this is a pretty ill-advised movie, considering Suicide Squad was an absolute stinkbomb. But we can’t kid ourselves and pretend Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn wasn’t one of the only good things ab...

The Laundromat Preview

The Laundromat

The Laundromat, in principle, doesn’t bring Steven Soderbergh to mind. The elevator pitch for it might well do – “the story of the Panama Papers leak told with enough broadness to portray both the Mos...

Shakespeare's Globe Free Online Programme

Shakespeare’s Globe Free Programme

Shakespeare’s Globe have announced that they are to release six of their plays online for theatre goers to watch for free. The theatre, which closed its doors in late March on the orders of the Britis...

Charlie's Angels

Charlie’s Angels

You could be forgiven for looking at your local cinema listings and not knowing it was 2019. The reboot is the current theme of choice in Hollywood, and despite potential audience fatigue, it shows no...

Killing Eve Season 3

Dolittle Preview

Dolittle

After hanging up the Iron Man armour that not only redeemed his career but took it to incomparable new heights, you might expect Robert Downey Jr. to take one of several paths. Perhaps he would natura...

Le Mans '66

Le Mans ’66

It’s hard, at first, to fathom what exactly Christian Bale is doing in Le Mans ’66 (otherwise known as Ford Vs Ferrari in the US and other territories). His Birmingham accent occupies a near-hor...

Parasite the movie

Parasite Movie

This article about Parasite was published on the 1st of January 2020. What separates Bong Joon-Ho from many of his contemporaries is how he understands that the tone of a movie can be distinct from it...
