Gorgeous Cinema: The Gentlemen

“It’s cinema and it’s gorgeous,” are a few of the first words uttered by Hugh Grant’s character, Fletcher, in this slick, meta-fictive gangster flick, and no truer words have been said by a cinematic character since the turn of the millennium. The Gentlemen starts out with England’s puff business boss Mickey Pearson sitting down at … Continued

Little Women: A Movie Review

What we’ve come to expect from Gerwig is attention to detail. From dialogue to costumes, from movement to lighting.

Captain Marvel review: timing and secrecy is everything

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), timing and secrecy is everything.

Netflix and chill: The Invention of Lying

Science will tell you that humans begin lying around the ripe old age of two years old, so it’s a bold thought to wonder what implications there would be to society if we were all honest people.

Movie Review: Tucker and Dale vs Evil

The horror comedy genre is hard to nail. You need the right amount of humour, horror, and sometimes absurdity to pull the whole production off.
