Review: Rocketman (2019) – This Dream Looks Like Reality

While last years Bohemian Rhapsody can be accused of having a narrow focus and a somewhat warped idea of the issues facing an iconic figure, Rocketman manages to flit between the many conflicting elements of a psyche that proves both fascinating and relate-able while allowing for moments of genuine wonder. Some might say it is …

Review: John Wick Parabellum – Revenge Is A Dish Best Served Three Times!

When John Wick first entered into the zeitgeist back in 2014, the term art house action kept repeating all over social media and in reviews.

Review: Angel Has Fallen (2019) – Banning, Last Blood

Starting in 2013, the Fallen series started. Angel Has Fallen is supposedly the final chapter in a trilogy of films that set out to return a sense of 80s/90s machismo to Hollywood while attempting to say something pertinent about the state of American politics. Despite the films liberal leanings, this isn't a film consumed with …
