Jack Reacher Never Go Back; A tired sequel but a win for gender equality.

Jack Reacher:Never Go Back is like throwback thursday to me. Just as the trending hashtag conjures superficial feelings of nostalgia from social media fanatics, the second installment of Jack Reacher is similarly designed to appeal to fans of the genre with much ado about nothing. A good first movie quickly produced a second lite version…

First half of 2016 in film recapped

And just like that, 2016 reaches its halfway point. Wherever you may be in your life right now, I hope you’ve achieved all that you set your heart to. For me, I’ve been trying to make the best use of my time before I enter Uni next year 🙂 What have you guys been up to!?…

X-Men Apocalypse review: It hath come undone

Forgive my slightly cheesy title. I was mimicking the god-like villain in the film, Apocalypse, whose high-and-mighty antics only make him look farcical. Just like the film itself, Bryan Singer and team went out to make a finale of epic proportions without grasping the essence of what made the franchise so great. For all the…

Key & Peele!

Ever heard of them! You haven’t?! You have to! These are seriously the most talented guys in comedy right now, well their show ended a little while back. But still, I stand by my view that they’re the best. Their sketches are super hilarious and their accent range is huge. But the best thing is…

Black Swan review: The caged bird

I had the pleasure of reviewing this movie as part of Table9Mutant‘s IMDB top 250 movies ever series (which she posted about a week ago). Head on over to her site and check out her fantastic movie reviews. I always find her posts a joy to read, and of course, her music video recommendations never…

The Jungle Book review: My childhood, relived.

It is truly something to watch a remake of one of your favourite childhood animated films. What enraptured me as a kid was how incredible it was that Mowgli, no less a young boy like me, could be so at one with the wild. As a kid, I embraced TJB’s innocent idealism and the nurture…

10 Cloverfield Lane review: Suspend

I finally managed to catch 10 Cloverfield Lane though I’m one of the latest to post a review so here goes. I’m just going to treat this as an individual movie because I’d rather not bring in the half-sequal debate with regards to the previous Cloverfield movie. As it stands, 10 Cloverfield Lane is mightily…

The Little Prince: For the young at heart

Antoine De-Saint Exupery, the author of ‘Un Petit Prince’ or The Little Prince, published his novella in 1943 to much acclaim and surprise. It was neither a children’s book nor a strictly adult one, combining a multi-fold of stories within stories that would only capture the wildest of imaginations. I was quite taken aback by…

Batman V Superman: Serious fluff

DC’s attempts to rival Marvel’s recent rampage of superhero films that have swamped the screens since what…8 years ago with the introduction of the Iron-man franchise (which was good fun), the Amazing Spiderman (meh, ok), the beloved Guardians Of The Galaxy and Ant-Man, Captain America (Just alright) and The Avengers (Kind of the worst of…

Zootopia: Welcome to the urban jungle

Zootopia’s poster somehow foreshadowed a frightening possibility that it could follow in the footsteps of Madagascar, which would render it a failure no doubt. There were some serious pre-conceived notions and worries I had before entering the cinema, some of it as a result of my distaste towards really bad animal animated films and utterly…
