Beauty and the Beast (2017)

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 10:31:33 +0000

Beauty and the Beast is a successful live-action retelling of the animated Disney classic. It stays loyal to the beloved animated film, keeping all the classic songs, but it provides a little more background information, adding depth to the characters and story. The essence of the story remains the same, with Belle falling for her captor the […]



Live, Die, Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 08:43:13 +0000

Edge of Tomorrow is akin to an alien invasion version of Groundhog Day. Tom Cruise’s character Bill Cage has to live the same day over and over, but unfortunately for him, the day involves an alien assault where he dies in various painful and frigtening ways. Although it sounds morbid, the concept is dealt with humorously […]



Manchester by the Sea (2016)

Tue, 07 Feb 2017 16:36:24 +0000

Manchester by the Sea is a heartbreaking film about loss and grief. It is brilliantly acted and there are glimspes of comedy that provide relief amongst the heartache. Despite the moments of humour, this is not a film where happy endings abound. The characters are all living in pain and dealing with it in their own different […]



Trumbo (2015)

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 15:52:50 +0000

Trumbo is a biopic of the late screenwriter Donald Trumbo, who in the late 1940s went from being one of Hollywood’s top screenwriters to being blacklisted due to his communist beliefs. During the House Un-American Activities Committee investigation into Communism in the Film Industry in 1947, Trumbo and other hollwood figures refused to testify and were […]



Danny Collins (2015)

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 10:47:49 +0000

Inspired by a true story, Danny Collins tells the story of ageing hard living rock star Danny Collins (Al Pacino) who discovers that 40 years ago John Lennon wrote him a letter with advice about how to handle fame.  The letter advises him to ‘stay true’ to himself and his art, and inevitably causes Danny to reflect […]



Carol (2015)

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 15:17:25 +0000

Set in the 1950s when same sex relationships were still a rarity, Carol is a visually satisfying period romance about a forbidden love affair between two women in New York. A brief encounter in a  department store leads to a slow burning romance between shop assistant and budding photographer Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara) and high class […]



Love and Friendship (2016)

Tue, 12 Jul 2016 14:30:41 +0000

Love and Friendship is an adaptation of a little known Jane Austen novella called Lady Susan. In contrast to other Austen novels which have been adapted for the screen many times, Lady Susan has hardly been touched.  A reason for this might be because the heroine is a manipulative adulteress,  rare and quite risque for a film set in […]



13 Cameras (2016)

Mon, 11 Jul 2016 19:28:09 +0000

The advent of wireless home security and surveillance technology has certainly made homes safer. Have you ever thought what would happen if this technology were used against you? How easy would it be for someone to spy on you in your own home? This is the premise that the film 13 Cameras is built upon. […]



No Emotions, No Problems? Review of Equals (2016)

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 03:07:08 +0000

In science fiction, the line separating a “utopian” existence from a “dystopian” one is often thin. A seemingly well-ordered world may hide dark secrets. The new 2016 film, Equals, is set in a futuristic society that seems perfect on the surface, but beneath the shiny high-rise buildings and perfume-ad aesthetics is a society that’s lost its […]



10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)

Mon, 09 May 2016 12:54:12 +0000

Despite being loosely labelled a sequel to the successful 2008 Cloverfield which was shot in found footage format and portrayed an alien invasion, 10 Cloverfield Lane is a very different experience. It is not immediately apparent that it has any connection to the previous movie, except that the title also contains the word Cloverfield. This film has only three […]
