‘Dark Phoenix’ Film Review

Why? This word perfectly encapsulates my frustration with the existence of this film. Why also happens to be the mantra which I constantly repeated out loud in the near empty theatre forming questions such as: Why was this movie made? Who thought this would be a good idea? Why did Sophie Turner enroll in the Bella Swan school of ...

‘Bumblebee’ Film Review

It was only a matter of time until Paramount’s cash-cow franchise got a standalone and it thankfully veers (for the most part) from the Michael Bay formula and shines above all the prior entries. A rocky start and some static characters build into a fun, light-hearted tale that will put a smile on any movie-goers ...

‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ Film Review

The second chapter in the new Wizarding World franchise takes an eerie yet puzzling turn for the worst as an unnecessary table-setter for future films. Character actions and the plot attempt to mimic the the deep and defined plot structure of past Harry Potter films, but it turns into head scratcher after head scratcher. For a ...

‘The Nutcracker and the Four Realms’ Film Review

The November 1st release date for this movie tells all. Once again, as soon as Halloween passes, Christmas takes a stranglehold of the market for the following couple of months. Walking into an Indigo Book store (or, for you purists out there, a Chapters), the decorations were festive, and the music of Michael Bublé has ...

‘Sierra Burgess is a Loser’ Film Review

Barb is back ladies and gentleman! Okay not really but Shannon Purser is back on Netflix for a brand new film, Sierra Burgess is a Loser. 2018 has had no shortage of young-adult features with films like Love, Simon and To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before receiving critical acclaim from critics and fans while ...

‘To All The Boys I Loved Before’ Film Review

Teen Romance films are a very tricky thing to do well. This is largely because there are a series of expected tropes that are frequently used and often lead to a predictable and largely dull movie. They also have to portray what it means to be young, to be a teenager in high-school and devoid ...

‘BlacKKKlansman’ Film Review

Spike Lee's pent up anger uses BlacKKKlansman to show he is not an auteur to be messed with. Similarly to his last film Chi-Raq, we can see the essence of anger and rage frivolously boil in this film. Lacking in the suspense department, the comedy and the seamless blunt approach to every interaction shines greatly ...

‘Ocean’s 8’ Film Review

All female reboots/remakes have become one of the most talked about hot-button issues in Hollywood today. The call for more diversity in film has led to some amazing projects while others (Star Wars pushing for more female representation) has been met with a more mixed reaction. Personally, I would rather women and people of color ...

‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor?’ Film Review

143. This very special number and its message perfectly summarize the theme and mood of this lovely documentary. 143 is not just the weight of the beloved Fred Rogers (yes, every morning after his leisure swim, Mr. Rogers would weigh himself, and it would read 143 pounds), but it also serves as his and (the ...

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Film Review

*This is a spoiler-free review*  The wait is over. Celebrating ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe within a two and a half hour smorgasbord of action and emotion, reconciliation and separation. Avengers: Infinity War assembles Earth’s mightiest heroes to wage a war against Thanos in his pursuit of the six Infinity Stones. Thor, Iron ...

‘The Post’ Film Review

As one of cinema’s most legendary directors, Steven Spielberg has become known for his ability to tell any story in any genre. He has tackled war epics with Saving Private Ryan to sci-fi adventures in E.T and Jurassic Park. In what can be considered a pseudo-prequel to All the President’s Men, The Post acts as ...

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 ...
