Catching Up: An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn (2018) – What?

When watching anything there is usually a Eureka moment for me when I can say what that film is about. Be it something personal to just me or a grand theme that the director is prodding at in his own little way. That never came while watching Jim Hosking's latest surreal comedy for the very …

Review: Paddleton (2019) – Breaking In On The End

Death in cinema is common, characters die all the time. Sometimes its sad, sometimes its violent and other times its strangely laughable.

Review: The Lego Movie 2 (2019) -What’s Next?

Back in 2014 we were introduced to the cinematic world of Lego and since then we have had three movies of varying success showing that despite the awkwardly shaped hair they can be characters too. While I didn't enjoy 2017's Lego Batman Movie, the opening movie was new, original and particularly funny thanks to Phil …
