Charlize Theron proves once again that she is a formidable on screen presence in this wonderfully entertaining and state of the art fight film.
The Mummy review – the worst blockbuster of the year?
There’s nothing that works here. Tom Cruise leads a host of one dimensional characters in a messy setup of this underwhelming ‘Dark Universe’. The Mummy is terrible.
Alien: Covenant review – a clunky mix of ‘best of’ moments… and Prometheus
Cheesy dialogue and a messy narrative make this a confusing outing. It’s a wonky blend of the original Alien and Prometheus. Apples and Oranges.
Atomic Blonde trailer – Charlize Theron is female John Wick
Wow, just wow. Atomic Blonde is going to be on everyone’s mind this weekend with the release of the trailer and the premiere of the film at SXSW. Bruises on top of bruises. Check out Charlize Theron’s hardcore skills.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter review
v=The ‘final’ chapter of the Resident Evil franchise is better than the previous too, but falls short of capturing the original thrills and bloody spills of the first two films, which will always be the best.
War for the Planet of the Apes trailer
Honestly, I almost completely forgot about this franchise. I guess it’s had little room to breathe with all the Marvel and Star Wars around. This trailer is intense though and if it’s anything like the first two movies, War for the Planet of the Apes will be great. Andy Serkis, the human puppet who plays Caesar, is a true master of his craft. Having acted in films for years, I think his true talents lie in these animalistic characters that find him running around on all fours. Having studied the behaviour of apes for the previous films and also for Peter Jackson’s King Kong, I’m thrilled to see where he’s going to take the character this time. Check out the trailer below.
Doctor Strange review
More silly than strange. Marvel’s latest outing takes us into the mystical unknown. A world behind reality as we know it. If you loved the carefully constructed worlds of The Matrix and Inception, and the deep philosophies behind them, you probably won’t dig Doctor Strange.
Robert Langdon, the nerdy version of Indiana Jones, is back and on the way to hell in Inferno. The third Ron Howard film based on the series of books by Dan Brown has all the usual painting puzzles that have become a little tiresome over the years, but with some colourful imagery and more character development, it’s definitely not another Da Vinci Code.
