Review in Brief: Pacific Rim: Uprising (2018)

Well you can’t accuse anybody working on this of just doing the same thing twice. PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING might be even dumber than the first film, which was Guillermo del Toro valiantly attempting to get something with thematic substance out … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Alita: Battle Angel (2019)

The Manga eyes didn’t bother me, it was the mouth, the split-second between changes in facial expression you pick up from a human performer (Rosa Salazar) motion-capturing an almost-human. It’s completely different from creating a believable ape or orc or … Continue reading

Review in Brief: See You Yesterday (2019)

SEE YOU YESTERDAY is a minor-key delight. Riffing a lot on BACK TO THE FUTIRE II but with punchy social commentary, the film has a special guest star in an early scene, and his appearance would have been enough, but … Continue reading

Review: Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019)

Is DETECTIVE PIKACHU the best video game movie ever made? Probably. Does it stand up as a film in its own right? Mostly. Sorry if it seems like I’m sitting on the fence with this one but I’m genuinely struggling … Continue reading

Review in Brief: The Wandering Earth (2019)

THE WANDERING EARTH either needed to be a lot smarter or a little bit dumber to really land. It’s fascinating to see China enter the international blockbuster arena in earnest with the killer premise of building monolithic engines on the … Continue reading

May the Fourth Review: Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace

Yeah, that’s right, for Star Wars Day 2019 I’m reviewing this one. It’s not that bad. Alright it’s bad, but it’s not that bad. George Lucas knew what he wanted to achieve with THE PHANTOM MENACE, his vision remains clear … Continue reading

Review: Captain Marvel (2019)

It only took Marvel 21 movies. Now she’s finally taken flight. CAPTAIN MARVEL like GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY before it, could be the first stage of a colourful cosmic journey for the superhero superfactory. An encounter with shapeshifting Skrull foes … Continue reading

Review: The Endless (2017/18)

About half a decade ago, indie nobodies Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead hit the festival circuit with their first feature film RESOLUTION, and it did rather well. Critically. The problem was nobody saw this weird near-plotless sci-fi when it was … Continue reading

Review: A Quiet Place (2018)

Sometimes the simplest premises have the most memorable results. I don’t think A QUIET PLACE is a game-changer for the horror or sci-fi genres, but it is very good at what it does. It also makes me want to see … Continue reading
