Batman The Killing Joke

Batman: The Killing Joke – Movie Review

For Batman fans, the announcement of an animated adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke induced equal doses of excitement and terror because, well, Hollywood. The returns of Kevin Conroy (Batman) and Mark Hamill (Joker), coupled with the news that it would be an R-rated release, set every fanboy’s heart racing. There’s this old adage used

In the Heart of the Sea – Movie Review

Adapting a historical account into a film must largely be taken in one of two directions if it is to succeed as a film: you either tell the events exactly as they are, capture the human drama and spectacle, and hope that the story is compelling enough, or you find some sort of angle to

The Last Witch Hunter – Movie Review

Even the most mediocre of action/fantasy movies can be saved if they think enough about their setting and concept to make it seem believable. The Last Witch Hunter, despite its flaws, is able to do this for the most part, and I remained interested while watching it, even I was constantly aware of how silly 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is an improvement on the first, mainly due to the fact that it actually spends more of its focus on The Turtles.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows – Movie Review

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is an improvement on the first, mainly due to the fact that it actually spends more of its focus on The Turtles. Thankfully, we see less of April O’ Neil and the relationships between the uninteresting human characters. You get to see the dynamic of the brothers 

Independence Day: Resurgence

Independence Day: Resurgence – Movie Review

In retrospect, 1996’s sci-fi epic Independence Day was revolutionary. It ushered in a new age of disaster blockbusters, set the template for VFX, and elevated TV star Will Smith (The Fresh Prince) to a superstar. Now, twenty years later, like the aliens of the hackneyed sequel, Roland Emmerich and his all-star cast are returning for

Keanu – Movie Review

In their new action-comedy, adorably titled after the lead kitten, Keanu, internet sensations Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele of the Comedy Central sketch program Key & Peele have created a very lengthy extended cat video. Their first foray starring in feature films is a shambling buddy comedy that has a few laugh-out-loud moments but struggles 

warcraft - movie review

Warcraft – Movie Review

Fans of the role-playing strategy video game will love Duncan Jones’ Warcraft movie, an enchanting tale of fantasy and mythology. However, those who haven’t played any of the games might find themselves lost in the middle of a visually beautiful and colourful CGI battle between orcs, knights, and wizards. The real battle here is between 

now you see me 2 - movie review

Now You See Me 2 – Movie Review

Lions Gate’s 2013 magic-themed heist thriller starring box office drawers Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, and Morgan Freeman has spawned a second act. Unambitiously titled Now You See Me 2, the sequel is an even more absurd and implausible caper. But boy is it fun! The original film was the highest-grossing movie 

lila & eve review

Lila & Eve – Movie Review

After some investigating, I discovered why Lila & Eve felt like an extended Lifetime Original movie. This is because it is, in fact, an extended Lifetime Original movie sent to the big screen. It all makes sense now. The overblown drama of it seems so right now. It still doesn’t make it a good movie,

Captain America: Civil War – Movie Review

A few years ago after watching Captain America Winter Soldier I thought, “Could Marvel ever top this?” We got Guardians of the Galaxy, which was great, then Ant-Man, which proved to be more than just the flavour of the month, but now we have the best Marvel film ever in Captain America: Civil War. There 

no escape film review

No Escape – Movie Review

A xenophobic thriller with a misplaced Owen Wilson as a leading hero sounds like an awful idea. However, No Escape manages to keep emotions low and thrills very high in this violent chase that captures the inhumanity set during a brutal coup d’état. Set in an unnamed location that closely resembles Thailand, No Escape follows

Batman v Superman – 4DX Movie Review

God versus man. Day versus night. Son of Krypton versus Bat of Gotham. Batman v Superman 4DX. Can you think of a better way to watch one of the greatest showdowns in the history of film? If this were a boxing match, Nu Metro’s 4DX offers front row VIP seats – the kind that allows

The Batman/Superman Movie: World’s Finest – Movie Review

If you fancy watching DC’s two top guys meeting for the first time and squaring off, but don’t feel up to watching two and a half hours of boring dream sequences and an unconvincing Lex Luthor, then The Batman/Superman Movie: World’s Finest is the one for you. In fact, you could watch it twice in 

Kidnapping Mr. Heineken review

Kidnapping Mr. Heineken – Movie Review

Yes, Kidnapping Mr. Heineken has to do with beer. We get a chance to witness the kidnapping of beer baron Freddy Heineken in Amsterdam. It led to the highest paid ransom for an individual ever. The title pretty much sums the movie up. The story is told from the kidnappers point-of-view. The viewer gets to

Justice League vs. Teen Titans Review (2nd Opinion)

The Teen Titans finally make their return to the realm of animated films. The last film they were seen in was Trouble in Tokyo which was years ago. Now, with the new DC Animated Universe in full swing, a new group of Teen Titans comes to the fore, with the Robin in this team being

Justice League vs. Teen Titans Review

When the Justice League unveil their “headquarters”, the Hall Of Justice, to the world it’s hardly surprising that they become a target for supervillains. In fact, no sooner has it been established than the Legion of Doom decides to attack it. It’s all pretty standard, and the few Leaguers who are actually on hand –

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Spoiler Free Review (3rd Opinion)

Zack Snyder’s big and bruising Man of Steel was no stranger to controversy, negative reviews, and discussion. It’s not surprising then that the film’s sequel, billed as the greatest gladiator fight in the history of comic book film, has inspired the same amount of conversation. Regardless, the fans have spoken and Batman v Superman is

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Review (2nd Opinion)

The wait is finally over. Batman v Superman has arrived. While the title plays at an exclusive battle between two of the most loved comic book characters of all time, there’s a whole lot more going on than just that. But, truth be told, it’s what the majority of us are paying to see. There
