‘Lady Bird’ Film Review

I have been meaning to write a review for Lady Bird for a long time. By the time you read this, you will have probably already heard about how breathtaking and incredible this low budget, coming-of-age film truly is. One that took the entire film industry by surprise, given its name sounds like a sequel ...

‘The Shape of Water’ Film Review

A man who is known for his out-of-the-box and diverse style of filmmaking, Guillermo del Toro really has done it all when it comes to cinema. He has crafted superhero horror films such as Hellboy, visually dazzling features like Pan’s Labyrinth and even blockbuster popcorn flicks like Pacific Rim. With every film del Toro develops, ...

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review

Written By: Nick Poulimenakos & Mathew ‘JJ’ Simoes The middle chapter in a trilogy is generally known as a tough egg to crack. Not only is it meant to learn from its predecessor and take on certain established story threads, it is also looked upon to craft a unique, standalone narrative that answers some questions ...

Justice League Review

Anyone who knows me, knows that I’ve been a firm defender of the DC Extended Universe. Despite its divisiveness, I firmly believe this to be a solid film franchise with great characters, enticing stories, great visuals and heart-pounding musical scores. That being said, I am also fully aware of its many faults that led the ...

Thor: Ragnarok Review

Marvel’s Thor franchise is frequently cited as weaker aspects of the otherwise acclaimed connected universe. While both Thor and Thor: The Dark World have great performances and stunning visuals, the stories are generally lackluster and fans have been patiently waiting for the god of thunder to get his true shining moment on the big screen. ...

Blade Runner 2049 Review

Written By: Nick Poulimenakos & Mathew ‘JJ’ Simoes 1982’s Blade Runner is a sci-fi cult classic. A film that, upon premiering, received mixed reviews and was quickly dismissed by moviegoers. Fast forward several years, and it is now looked at as a landmark in filmmaking thanks to its incredible visuals, existential themes and a phenomenal ...

It Review

The latest adaption of Stephen King's novel It has arrived, and the film was truly terrifying and in keeping with the spirit of the novel.  One thing of note, when I refer to the film's antagonist I will alternate between Pennywise and It. It tells the story of Derry, a small town in America which is ...

Death Note Review

Written By: Artur Galvao Well it looks like the internet hates this movie, only getting a 35% on Rotten Tomatoes. However, is all this hatred justified? Are people not liking this film because it’s a bad adaptation or because it’s a bad movie? This review will attempt to answer these questions. Personally, I didn’t hate ...

The Emoji Movie Review

I have one rule when it comes to cinema. It’s that all movies deserve a chance. No movie should be judged solely based on the reviews from professional critics. Watch the movie for yourself and make your own judgement. So, that’s what I did here with The Emoji Movie. JJ and Artur refused to join ...

Dunkirk Audio Review

Written By: Nick Poulimenakos I'm still thinking of doing a formal review for Dunkirk but until then, enjoy our first movie review on YouTube! What?? A video on a Tuesday?? Blasphemy! But seriously, welcome to the first movie review on the Talkies Network channel! On today's episode, we have Christopher Nolan's WWII epic, Dunkirk! Don't ...

War for the Planet of the Apes Review

Trilogies that are consistently good might just be the rarest thing in cinema history. Every now and again however, we get a trilogy in the vein of the original Star Wars trilogy and The Dark Knight trilogy. This, is one of those times. I don’t think anyone saw a rebooted Planet of the Apes trilogy ...

Spider-Man: Homecoming Review

I grew up with the Raimi verse Spider-Man, so I had an incredible bias against the Marc Webb led reboot of the franchise.  So, when they announced a new Spider-Man, I became skeptical again, but Tom Holland amazed me in Civil War, and he amazed me again in this time around.  Spider-Man: Homecoming was the ...
