Rating: A- In the filmic reincarnation of that famous “2009 Miracle on the Hudson”  where Captain “Sully” Sullenberger made a successful emergency water landing after hitting a flock of geese soon after takeoff—director Clint Eastwood makes some effort to keep Read more...

The Shallows

Posted 12:24pm Saturday 24th September 2016

Rating: B- Upon deep reflection, I have decided that watching The Shallows is much like eating McDonalds for dinner, both of which I did in the last week. What I mean is that both events (the film and the fast food eating) possessed equal amounts of enjoyment, critical thought, and Read more...

Our Kind of Traitor

Posted 12:50pm Saturday 10th September 2016

Rating: B Our Kind of Traitor is the latest in spy-thriller-novel conversions by British author John Le Carre, and delivers generously in suspense, espionage, and drama. While the film is no doubt a good watch, it falters in equalling the critically acclaimed British miniseries The Night Manager Read more...

High Fidelity

Posted 1:14pm Sunday 31st July 2016

Rating: A- The film High Fidelity, based on British author Nick Hornby’s bestselling novel, is perhaps a good example of the way some film adaptations are not always better than their literary beginnings. Despite this, the film does an admirable job of harnessing Hornby’s humour and Read more...

Rating: A A heart-warming documentary that spans the life of Soul, RnB, and Gospel singer Mavis Staples, Mavis! entertains and informs on many levels. You don’t have to be a history or music buff to appreciate and enjoy all that Mavis Staples has accomplished during her lengthy career Read more...

Florence Foster Jenkins

Posted 12:39pm Sunday 22nd May 2016

Rating: A In the middle of a very stressful week, and nearing the end of a pretty hectic semester, seeing a heart-warming film about a rich woman who couldn’t sing turned out to be exactly what I needed.  Florence Foster Jenkins creatively depicts the life of Madam Florence (played Read more...

Eye in the Sky

Posted 12:31pm Sunday 1st May 2016

Rating: A- Before seeing Eye in the Sky, a fairly topical military thriller that centres on the arguments around and ramifications of using drones in modern warfare, I had pretty high expectations and I wasn’t disappointed.  Dame Helen Mirren leads a pretty star-packed cast (Alan Read more...

Sleepless in Seattle

Posted 12:42pm Sunday 17th April 2016

Rating: A- I last rewatched this epic 1993 romance on Easter weekend, when TV2 was running old movies all day for the public holidays, and to be honest, it was as good as when I watched it the first time.  90s movie romance power couple Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks are the two leads in Read more...

Batman v Superman

Posted 12:38pm Sunday 10th April 2016

Rating: D Ok, so, Batman v Superman was just terrible. During the exhausting 2hr 31m runtime, the film follows the plight of both an unpopular Superman and ageing Batman as they initially battle each other, and then combine forces to take down a villainous Lex Luthor. To be honest, I walked out Read more...

Hail Caesar

Posted 1:47pm Sunday 20th March 2016

Rating: A- The latest goofy flick by the Coen Brothers provides multitudes of spazzy plotlines, weird humour and wtf moments. Following a day in the life of ‘Hollywood fixer’ Eddie Mannix (played superbly by Josh Brolin), Hail Caesar’s ramshackle plot serves up random portions Read more...
