The Predator is a reasonably entertaining action movie that loses all credibility and soul in the last half an hour.
Ready Player One review – one great big nerdgasm
Spielberg returns to sci-fi with a movie he was born to make. Ready Player One is a fun outing into nostalgia nirvana even if it fails to fully bring the source material’s characters right off the page.
Future Gate 2018 – How to Talk to Girls at Parties review
Screened on opening night of the Future Gate Sci-fi Film Festival, How to Talk to Girls at Parties is a hilarious and delightfully playful interpretation of Neil Gaiman’s punk inspired short story and destined for cult classic greatness.
Mother! review – a requiem for Mother Earth that will both disturb and inspire
Mother! is an ambitious passion project that sucks you in with its nightmarish intensity and deafening allegories. A fascinating, but truly disturbing watch. Fans of Aronofsky will love this, and everyone else? I’m not sure.
Death Note review – A ridiculous and rushed adaptation of the original anime
An interesting concept that could go so many ways, but in the end, it chooses the most ridiculous. Death Note’s characters have motivations so illogical and out-of-the-blue, that even the actors seem confused.
Valerian review – Besson’s latest deserves a chance
Valerian is a complicated sci-fi cat. Like Besson’s The Fifth Element, it relies heavily on style and quirk, but lacks complexity or depth in its two youthful characters.
American Gods: Season 1, Episode 8 review – Finale
After a disappointing last few episodes, the finale got the ball rolling again, but unfortunately it all came a bit too late. Still, some wonderful performances and very creative art direction.
American Gods: Season 1, Episode 7 review
American Gods takes us away from the main plot again to fill us in on the backstory of Mad Sweeney. Not a particularly rewarding or relevant episode. It’s time that things got back on track, but next week is the finale…
American Gods: Season 1, Episode 6 review
Episode 6 sees us get back into the road trip side of things. Two road trips in fact, both equally strange, and confusing.
Wonder Woman review – everything you wanted it to be plus more
Wonder Woman is without a doubt, one of the best superhero films of recent years. It’s popping with energy, charisma, and superb storytelling. Gal Gadot is unstoppable and a perfect fit for the Amazon princess. It took 75 years of waiting to get this character from comic to screen, but it was worth it.
