‘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.

*I will preface this review with the following statement: I have never read or played any form of media related to The Witcher series prior to watching Netflix's adaptation of the popular franchise. That is the context under which I am reviewing the first season of Netflix's The Witcher. This is an advanced review based ...

‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Film Review

‘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 ...

The Renaissance of Shia LaBeouf or: How I Learned to Feel Again

The first time that I saw Shia LaBeouf was in a movie called Holes and while I can’t say I remember much of his performance, I do remember two things: 1. That his name was something that I had no idea how to pronounce and 2. That he kind of looked like me. The second ...

‘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 ...
