  • Phantom Thread Review

    Phantom Thread is a confusing, odd, dark, sharply funny and gorgeous 130-minute ride. Fans of Anderson will not be disappointed.

    Alexander Payne is one of cinema’s most brilliant and consistent directors to come into the fold in the last two decades with films that have not only balanced heart and humour to wonderful effects but bring us some of the most eclectic group of characters. Whether it was Miles & Jack as they made their way through the luscious vineyards of California, Warren Schmidt and his travelling RV or Tracy Flick’s ambitions of being class President. So it’s something of a crushing disappointment to…

    Like the best modern examples of 3D film, though, Alita: Battle Angel was brought to the silver screen through the lens of a Fusion Camera System, helping to immerse the audience in the vibrant action.

  • Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Review

    Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a sequel that shouldn’t work. It’s about twenty years too late, the original film’s star is no longer with us, and nobody really asked for this story to continue. Strangely enough, though, director Jake Kasdan has made a successor that’s much more entertaining than it has any right to be.

    While charming at times, and easy to indulge in at others – given the two filmmakers at the helm it was hard not to anticipate a film with a little more ingenuity than this.

    Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water is a true labor of love for the filmmaker. We’ve seen him tackle mainstream blockbuster material with Pacific Rim and Hellboy, but this new, surreal love story has more in common with his adored 2006 film, Pan’s Labyrinth.

    It holds the same gentle dark fantasy backbone, using dense colours to tell its story, which follows a mute woman, Eliza (Sally Hawkins), who works as a janitor in a mysterious government laboratory. She keeps in the background,…

    The pertinent themes that are studied within this Brian Fee endeavour are evidently interesting and deserving of cinematic treatment – and yet Cars 3 feels tedious in parts, with several sections of the movie that simply pass the time.

    When Edge of Tomorrow came out a few years ago, everybody wrote it off as a Groundhog Day knockoff with explosions. Against all the odds, though, Doug Liman’s film managed to be clever, funny, and fresh despite its familiar premise. The same can be said about Happy Death Day.
