Film Review: Trouble with the Curve

The only forward thinking idea in Trouble with the Curve is the depiction of the Boston Red Sox as strong contenders for the number one selection in the first year player draft.

Film Review: Unknown

While sitting through a viewing of Liam Neeson’s most recent foray in to the thriller-chase genre Unknown, I was struck with a sense of déjà vu. Much like Neeson’s character in Unknown I was lost, grasping at straws in an attempt to corner a feeling of having been on this adventure before, only something was different. Instead of Neeson being my guide it was the infinitely sultrier Angelina Jolie in the lead role, complete with all the explosions and grandeur that accompanies most of what Jolie does.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Dream a dream and what you see...

Fantastic Beasts and where to Find Them definitely earned its place right up there with the 1984 The NeverEnding Story, because while watching it, I wasn’t a 21-year-old university student.

In Captain America: Civil War, heroes try to atone for their mistakes

"Though kids will surely be entertained by the non-stop action and impressive visual effects, it is certainly not a movie aimed primarily at children.

Hack-job Ridge

The most important lesson any small business person, artist, or musician has to learn is to separate themselves from their work.

While the genre may not be box-office gold, theatrical concert films have made serious advancements in both technology and production in the past decade.

Fear takes many forms in IT

Directed by Andy Muschietti, 2017’s adaptation of Stephen King’s 1986 novel IT takes place in the fictional town of Derry, Maine: a place that’s somehow sinister, seems a little off, and where bad things...

2015 Oscar-nominated live-action short films reviewed

The 87th annual Oscars were on Sunday, and the category of live-action short films offered vast cultural, topical and stylistic variety in comparison to the major motion pictures that were nominated.

Film Review: The Grandmaster

The fight scenes in Wong Kar-wai’s The Grandmaster might as well be dance scenes, more footwork and deflection than broken bones, but this becomes noticeable only over time. Wong’s picture of a transitionary period is broken into pieces, and his aesthetic has always been one of staggered rhythms, framerates, and overmatched, smeared colours.

Blade Runner 2049 is drawn-out, but impressive

Denis Villeneuve’s sequel to the 1982 sci-fi juggernaut Blade Runner is as grand as its predecessor. Aesthetically, viewers will find more of the original. Broad cityscapes portray a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles, riddled with garbage...
