The Story Of 90 Coins review

In increasingly uncertain times, matters of the heart are hardly spared. There is an ever increasing incongruity between idealism and reality, what we perceive and what we experience, the desire for greater control and the erosion of personal agency in love and life. Michael Wong’s first foray into film with The Story Of 90 Coins…

Movie Recommendation! Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close review: Brave

Just have a look at the film’s detractors and you’ll find heaps of criticism lashed upon the movie from it’s pretentious and overly self-concerned directing style, to the seemingly unrelatable perspective of a child with autism. Adding to this is the fact that some find it difficult to watch while others emphasize their points with…

Far From The Madding Crowd: A passionate adaptation.

After a month’s break from blogging, the next post has been coming for a while.And it’s finally here. Far from the madding crowd is the film that has re-ignited my fire for movie reviewing; Now I have well and truly returned to the fold. Thomas Vinterberg’s stylish piece has shone far beyond the plethora of…

Midnight In Paris: Woody Allen’s Romance masterpiece.

With it’s heartening message, few films can match Midnight in Paris in its honest support for the romantic. The film opens with a plethora of scenes from street cafes to a snapshot of Montmart√© to Parisian nightlife teeming with a unique mix of mellow and vivaciousness. The awkward charm of Owen Wilson and the enthralling…

Goodfellas: A classic mafia film

I’ve only recently watched Goodfellas. Yeah I know ya’ll are gonna make fun of me for only recently watching this epic, so whatever haha throw the kitchen sink. I know some of you are gonna kill me if I add a bad review. Nah, I’m just foolin’ around. It’s a fantastic film. Harking back the…

Wild Tales: A breath of humour and tragedy and everything else mixed together.

Wild Tales is Damian Szifron’s interesting look into the ‘extreme’. So uncompromising is his style that stories barely lie on the fringe of realism; But reality is bent just enough to underscore some very real and dreadful revelations. Six stories make up the film and each begin somewhat innocently as we’re introduced to characters that…

Focus: Dazzling, glamourous and charming.

I don’t care what others might say about the movie, but Focus was certainly enjoyable fun. Will Smith and Margot Robbie were full of charm and suave, which helped to save this movie from being just another one of those high stakes ‘heists’ film. In all honesty, don’t expect Focus to contend for something like…

Insurgent: It didn’t quite cut it.

It’s sad to see that many people’s first impression of Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller are for their roles in the Divergent series. Whatever happened to The Fault In Our Stars(Shailene), The Descendants(Shailene), Whiplash(Miles) and The Spectacular Now(both of them)? Insurgent was honestly quite disappointing. It lacked the action, depth, plot and characterization that I…
