‘Dolittle’ Film Review

Following this film, Hollywood should consider retiring the Doctor Dolittle series. What started as a children books in 1920s has turned into a very profitable property with the Eddie Murphy films the late 90s. Frankly speaking, I didn’t think this franchise would resurface, especially with Robert Downey Jr. at helm, considering the last couple of ...

‘Cats’ Film Review

Written By: Marie Rose: Domenichini & Sophia Poulimenakos As two extreme Broadway nerds walked into the theatre to see Cats, the expectation were honestly quite low. But nothing could have prepared us for the mess this movie was about to be. Musical adaptations from Broadway normally are not the best – but they at least ...

‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Film Review

Disclaimer:  I am not a hardcore fan; I am a casual fan of Star Wars.  This may be a problem for some of you – I get that – but hear me out when I say that The Rise of Skywalker was a pretty good movie, which took the last two films (and likely the ...

‘Waves’ Film Review

A few days ago, I begrudgingly put my snow boots on and trekked through the snow to my local movie theater. This was my first week of dealing with snow, and I hated it already. Did I want to walk through the snow? Absolutely not. Why not? Because I hated it and because it made ...

‘Frozen 2’ Film Review

To start off this review I must make an honest admission of guilt:  I had not seen Disney’s 2013 smash hit, Frozen, until just a few days ago.  Being assigned to review the second film at an advanced screening and press preview event hosted by Walt Disney Studios Canada, I thought it necessary to take ...

‘The Irishman’ Film Review

The Irishman or I Heard you Paint Houses is the newest film directed by legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese.  Based off of the book of the same name by former homicide prosecutor, investigator and defense attorney Charles Brandt, the film recounts the life of Frank “the Irishman” Sheeran (played by Robert De Niro), a suspected mafia ...

‘The Laundromat’ Film Review

The Laundromat, based on real events, is about a woman named Ellen Martin (Meryl Streep), whose wedding anniversary trip with her husband results in her entering the world of shell corporations, which are connected to a shady law firm in Panama. Despite boasting a wonderful ensemble cast and hilarious dialogue, The Laundromat is far too ...

‘Ad Astra’ Film Review

Ad Astra, starring Brad Pitt, follows the story of Roy McBride, as he embarks on a journey to find the truth about his father’s –  Dr. Clifford McBride decorated astronaut – experience in space and attempts to help stop the imminent destruction of the solar system and all life as we know it. I’ve seen ...

‘It: Chapter Two’ Film Review

The horror in Derry has come to an end. In Andy Muschietti’s It: Chapter Two, the Losers Club return to their hometown twenty-seven years later to finally defeat the interdimensional demonic clown monster that plagued their youth. It: Chapter Two isn’t quite as enthralling as its predecessor due to a bloated script the resulting overly ...

‘Jungleland’ Film Review | TIFF 2019

Jungleland is a film straight out of the 70’s.  Everything from the heavily influenced storyline to the pacing, provide a glimpse to films gone past.  The male centered melodrama based on the relationship between two brothers facing hard times as a bareknuckle boxer and manager is both refreshing and exhausting.  It is refreshing because this ...

‘Lucy in the Sky’ Film Review | TIFF 2019

Noah Hawley is a consistently innovative writer and filmmaker. His visual storytelling is virtually unmatched, with Hawley channeling his inner David Lynch in the last couple years. Hawley brings that visual flair, best seen in his FX series Legion, to his feature film directorial debut: Lucy in the Sky. Inspired by the real-life story of ...

‘Weathering With You’ Film Review | TIFF 2019

Weathering With You (Japanese: 天気の子) is a 2019 Japanese animated romantic fantasy film written and directed by Makoto Shinkai. This long-awaited anime follow-up to his 2017 acclaimed feature, Your Name, did not disappoint. The film is set in Japan during a period of exceptionally rainy weather and tells the story of a high school boy who ...
