Review in Brief: The Matrix Resurrections (2021)

Well this is about as good as a really meta belated follow-up to THE MATRIX was ever going to be, which given Lana Wachowski’s return to direct the project means, pretty damn good. Decades after the events of the Matrix … Continue reading

Review: Eternals (2021)

Remember when I said not to worry about a distinctive director’s style being smothered in a huge Marvel project? Well maybe we should have worried about Chloé Zhao’s distinctive director’s style being smothered by a huge Marvel project. Whatever the … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Dune (2021)

At long last we finally have Denis Villeneuve’s dream project of DUNE, or at least half of it. It’s unwieldily and hard to penetrate like Frank Herbert’s novel, but it’s a tactile, rich and essential big screen experience as well. … Continue reading

Review in Brief: The Tomorrow War (2021)

Review in Brief: A Quiet Place Part II (2021)

Certainly less lean and no-nonsense than the first instalment and too reliant on stupid horror movie characters acting like stupid horror movie characters, A QUIET PLACE PART II is still a mostly solid follow-up. After a pretty breathtaking opening flashback … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Psycho Goreman (2020)

If it wasn’t for all the splattery gore, this would be a great feelgood Amblin-style kids adventure movie. As it is, PSYCHO GOREMAN is an unholy union between FLASH GORDON and the TOXIC AVENGER, which is admittedly odd but works … Continue reading
