Review in Brief: Titane (2021)

TITANE, isn’t that the car-f***ing movie? Yes, and so much more. Writer-director Julia Ducornau (RAW) has, within five years, unleashed on the world two of the most transcendent, bold and both warm and messed up films of the 21st century … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Last Night in Soho (2021)

Edgar Wright’s latest is another dazzling, musically-lead genre cocktail that might not feel quite as singular as BABY DRIVER but still demonstrates that he is the best there is at this sort of thing. Thomasin McKenzie is Eloise, a fashion … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Candyman (2021)

You have to respect Nia DaCosta’s CANDYMAN for going hard, not going home. In this belated sequel to the 1992 film, struggling artist (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and his curator girlfriend (Teyonah Parris) living in the gentrified area of Chicago previously … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Werewolves Within (2021)

WEREWOLVES WITHIN is an absolute treat for horror-comedy fans, and cements Josh Ruben as a new master of meta scares. Not many horrors would open with a Mr Rogers quote, but it works creepily, atonally well. Believe it or not … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Spiral: From the Book of Saw (2021)

Make no mistake, SPIRAL is a SAW movie, it’s not a bold new direction for the franchise. Bafflingly someone says at one point “Jigsaw didn’t target cops”, which makes you wonder how closely people have been watching the other films … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Willy’s Wonderland (2021)

WILLY’S WONDERLAND is proof positive that nobody needs to make a FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S movie now. Nicolas Cage is a silent janitor with borderline superhuman capabilities seemingly imbued by energy drinks fighting animatronic mascots possessed by a cannibal cult. … Continue reading
