Concussion

Posted 2:03pm Sunday 6th March 2016

Rating: B This movie seemed very promising. Just like its contemporary Spotlight, it tells an important, recent true story about a powerful organization covering up wrongdoings, following the individuals who attempt to expose the truth. Concussion isn’t a catastrophic failure, but somehow Read more...

Aliens

Posted 1:59pm Sunday 26th July 2015

Classic From a time when quality sequels were probably even rarer than they are now, Aliens is a mind-blowing second instalment to the 1979 Alien. After surviving the events of the first movie, Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) returns to civilisation after being in stasis for 57 years. Read more...

Terminator Genisys

Posted 1:36pm Sunday 12th July 2015

Rating: 3/5 Like many Terminator fans, I believe that the franchise should have ended it all after Terminator 2 but, with a new instalment added to the classic franchise, I couldn’t help but have a mix of high hopes and low expectations for Terminator Genisys. Set in 2029, the film Read more...

Jurassic World

Posted 1:32pm Sunday 5th July 2015

Rating: 3/5 Like many of us, I was looking forward to a triumphant revival of the franchise that pretty much defined my childhood, but, deep down, I knew I was probably setting myself up for disappointment. My eventual reaction fell somewhere between those poles. Jurassic World Read more...

Run Lola Run

Posted 1:18pm Sunday 24th May 2015

Classic Run Lola Run is a unique, adrenaline-fuelled film with an urban angst reminiscent of The Matrix and Fight Club and Guy Ritchie-esque atmosphere. However, the film stands easily on its own. With techno music, parallel universes and the late 90s involved, I can unreservedly say that Run Read more...

Stay Tuned

Posted 1:37pm Sunday 17th May 2015

Cult Stay Tuned is an imaginative, entertaining and weirdly under-appreciated family comedy that answers the question we all pondered as kids: “What would happen if I could go inside my TV and participate in all of the shows?” Turns out it wouldn’t be so great, especially if Read more...

Ordinary People

Posted 1:36pm Sunday 10th May 2015

Classic In a somewhat Kanye West-esque fashion, Ordinary People is also known as the “movie that robbed Raging Bull of its Best Picture Oscar” and it’s a shame that this has become a big part of the film’s reputation. I haven’t seen Raging Bull, so I can’t Read more...

Flight of the Navigator

Posted 3:26pm Sunday 19th April 2015

Classic Flight of the Navigator is the best live-action Disney film. It seems routine enough on the surface — a kid has some adventures in a spaceship — but the film is elevated by its dark atmosphere and its slowly unfolding plot. In 1978, 12-year-old protagonist, David Freeman Read more...

The Keeper of Lost Causes (Kvinden I Buret)

Posted 3:00pm Sunday 21st September 2014

Rating: B Scandinavian cinema has a tendency to be kind of grim and morbid, and the recent wave of crime-dramas is no exception. After watching this movie, or The Bridge or the Millennium trilogy, one might be left with two strong impressions of Scandinavia: that itís completely grey and Read more...

Dead Poets Society

Posted 11:52pm Sunday 7th September 2014

The film that earned Robin Williams his second Oscar nomination and showed the world that he was actually a pretty damn good dramatic actor as well as a talented comedian. Williams plays John Keating, an eccentric and inspirational English teacher at an elite boys prep school in the 50s, whose Read more...
