Haven’t we been here before? SHREK, BRIGHT, DISENCHANTMENT and many others all present us with a fantasy world that operates by the rules of the world today to some extent. Pixar’s latest, ONWARD, might not be the sharpest or most … Continue reading

Review: The Lighthouse (2019)

THE LIGHTHOUSE is an experience, and no mistake, but it’s an experience I’d struggle to sell. Much like director Robert Eggers’ previous film THE WITCH, it’s fascinating, but it’s an acquired taste. Two lighthouse keepers (Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson) … Continue reading

Review: The Personal History of David Copperfield (2019/20)

If there’s an adjective you don’t tend to associate with Armando Iannucci, it’s sincere. Witty and incisive, sure, but not sincere. But that’s the way he and regular co-writer Simon Blackwell play THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD, Charles Dickens’ … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Mid90s (2018)

MID90s absolutely feels authentic, of a particular place and time. Any skater, or wannabe skater will see some truth here. You really grow to care for these kids, despite the often stupid decisions they make. They’re boys letting off stream … Continue reading

Review: Birds of Prey (2020)

DC now have their DEADPOOL. That’s the headline, that’s the tone of BIRDS OF PREY (AND THE FANTABULOUS EMANCIPATION OF ONE HARLEY QUINN) but it’s more than that on its own terms as well. For all the sweary shenanigans and … Continue reading
