Our take on... Ready Payer One

Our take on... Ready Payer One

August 08, 2018

“Ready Player One” is set in the far flung future and features a heavy dose of fully CGI characters and environments, and is set in both the real world and the virtual world of “The Oasis”. If you can imagine a version of “The Matrix” except entry to The Oasis is voluntary!...

Our take on... Mary Magdalene

Our take on... Mary Magdalene

July 26, 2018

This is a beautifully shot and scored film that doesn’t grandstand in the way religious films have in the past. The big events are portrayed in a very low key manner that works for the film, and the performances are very subtle, particularly the two leads. It’s a film that has the potential to move you, remove the pre-conceived notions of Mary Magdalene, and is one you could be thinking about for some time after watching it.

Our take on... Red Sparrow

July 18, 2018

Having worked together on three of the four “Hunger Games” films, director Frances Lawrence reunites with star Jennifer Lawrence for this adaptation of the novel of the same name by Jason Matthews. What we get here from the two is a very well shot, but at times tough to watch, espionage thriller which provides Jennifer Lawrence with her best performance since “Winter’s Bone” in 2010...

Our take on... Tombraider

July 18, 2018

This film is a total reboot of the film series, so put the Angelina Jolie version out of your mind. This version of Lara Croft isn’t the Bruce Wayne/Indiana Jones with a posh British accent that the character has become synonymous with since the first game was released in the mid 90s. Instead when we first meet Lara, she has foregone her family fortune and is working as a cycling courier in London...

Our Take on... 3 Billboards

May 30, 2018

If you’re familiar with Martin McDonagh’s previous work like “In Bruges” and “Seven Psychopaths” you’ll probably have a good idea of the kind of dark humour and explosions of sporadic violence to expect in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”...

Our Take on... The Greatest Showman

May 23, 2018

The film is loosely based on the life of PT Barnum, one half of the founders of the Barnum and Bailey circus which ran from 1871 to 2017. Hugh Jackman stars as Barnum and he’s absolutely perfect for the role. If you’re expecting the same type of performance that he gave in “Les Miserables” you can think again...
