Ready Player One Review

This review will contain spoilers. The eighties feels like it’s the decade that spawned that pesky thing called ‘nostalgia’. The rose tinted glasses of the seventies were discovered by upstart squirts who cringed at the idea of enjoying anything their parents would, so dove head first into whatever fantasy or science fiction books they could find in their local library, forgetting to come up...[Read More]

Pacific Rim Uprising Review

Pacific Rim Uprising Review

Ok – a quick rundown of the plot. The monstrous kaiju’s at the ending of Pacific Rim have been stopped thanks to Idris Elba’s Stacker Pentecost sacrifice. His son, Jake (John Boyega), sees the hero status of his dad as being one that’s a touch too much to live up to, so doesn’t try to give living up to it a shot. However, plot nuggets think differently, and eventually Jake is in the pilot seat of ...[Read More]

Tomb Raider Review

Tomb Raider Review

In video games, the cut scenes that occur in between the shooty, punchy, player driven moments, are traditionally the moments that character development is delivered. They’re the context sensitive elements that help make you care and understand why you’re mowing down endless swaths of nameless goons. If the story is no good, then players will mash that X button to get back to ending th...[Read More]

Justice League Review

Justice League Review

Justice League is a film jam packed full of messy, team driven fun. It’s character focused, it’s entertaining, it’s bright and it hits marks that previous DC films didn’t manage to hit. It is, however, still a Zack Snyder film through and through. In a bid to ward off the ‘everything is a spoiler’ crowd, I’m going to suggest that for those who the mere mention of a ma...[Read More]

Transformers: The Last Knight Review

Transformers: The Last Knight marks the fifth entry into this cacophonic Michael Bay helmed film series.

The Proposition – 2005 – John Hillcoat – The Last New Wave

It’s Christmas! So, after the year that was 2016, it’s only fair to discuss the most Christmassy film that Australia has to offer. Yep, that’d be John Hillcoat’s dirty, disgusting western epic, The Proposition. Once again, Andrew has dragged Michael Denniston from War Machine VS War Horse kicking and screaming to discuss an uplifting epic about death and retribution in summ...[Read More]
