Review in Brief: Top Gun: Maverick (2022)

Who’d have guessed a legacy sequel to TOP GUN would be this damn good? MAVERICK sees, well, Maverick (Tom Cruise) reluctantly return to the Top Gun flight school to train the next generation of superior naval aviators, including the son … Continue reading

Review in Brief: The King’s Man (2021)

THE KING’S MAN just doesn’t work on so many levels. It has a big tone problem to begin with, and far too many scenes of people standing around explaining what World War I was. Sworn pacifist the Duke of Oxford … Continue reading

Review in Brief: The Matrix Resurrections (2021)

Review in Brief: Army of the Dead (2021)

Zack Snyder is clearly relieved to be done with superheroes for now and has returned to the genre that broke him through: the zombie movie. Unfortunately ARMY OF THE DEAD is an over-stuffed and largely ponderous affair. The promising premise … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Mortal Kombat (2021)

Maybe rather than trying to stumble upon the secret formula for a successful game-to-film adaptation, it should be agreed that the answer remains “don’t”. MORTAL KOMBAT looks visually impressive for the most part, and fans of the games will doubtless … Continue reading
