‘The Call of the Wild’ Film Review

To boldly go where no dog has gone before The Call of the Wild (2020) delivers a refreshing take on Jack London's classic tale. For those who don't know, the film tells the story of a recluse dog named Buck who embarks on an epic adventure after being kidnapped from his comfortable home in the ...

‘To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You’ Film Review

In 2018, Netflix gave us a film that no one could stop talking about. What could be better than a film with an Asian woman as the lead, a new cute white boy of the month and a quirky high school romance? Its sequel. Netflix has finally come out with the sequel of To All ...

‘Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)’ Film Review

Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a wonderful, insane, action-packed DC Comics movie. I’ve thought about ways to lead into this statement, but why sugar-coat it? It is a film that refuses to abide by comic book movie tropes, creating an r-rated girl gang movie that is ...

‘Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made’ Film Review

It’s not every day that a huge studio like Disney has a film premiere at the Sundance film festival. After all, the festival is meant to act as a platform for small, indie features looking to make a name for themselves while also secure distribution from competing studios. And yet, here we are with the ...

‘Man Proposes, God Disposes’ Film Review

Man Proposes, God Disposes forced me to leave behind the precedence that big blockbuster films have left in my mind. While they are good, I needed to appreciate this in a different way. Daniel Leo gives us a story that we think we’ve seen before, but with a twist. Man Proposes, God Disposes follows a ...

‘I Am in the World As Free and Slender as a Deer on a Plain’ Film Review

Sofia Banzhaf’s short, I Am in the World As Free and Slender as a Deer on a Plain is a short film that packs a punch. Focusing on the female sexual experience away from the male gaze, Banzhaf takes what one may initially perceive as taboo and flip it on its head. The short follows ...

‘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 ...
