Review: Captain Marvel (2019) – Higher, Faster, Backwards?

It's 2019, we've been watching Marvel films for over 10 years and have witnessed origin stories for almost all of the heroes that fill up the Marvel Cinematic Universe and while each is unique to its specific characters they all push new and exciting boundaries that bring them to life in a way that makes …

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: The Kid Who Would Be King (2019) – Unbalanced & Unfocused

I'm not sure what has changed in the eight years since Attack The Block came out but Joe Cornish's latest just doesn't have the same zest to it that his debut did. While it might be his transition to the fantasy genre or the fact that his latest is strangely political for a kids film …

Review: Fighting With My Family (2019) – A Tough Nut to Crack

While implying an outlandish comedy that takes some risks in its approach to comedy, Fighting With My Family is far from the laugh out loud comedy its title suggests. This is far more conventional than most would expect and while some smaller moments work on a dramatic level its hard to find the core of …

Review: Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2019) – Be The Best You, You Can Be

When I finally got around to watching Can You Ever Forgive Me in cinemas I didn't know it would be the last film I would watch before a forced sabbatical brought on by a draining cold that seemed to linger much longer than it should have, like an extended family member at a birthday party. …
