Aquaman Finally Makes the DCEU Fun


Whereas many of the previous DCEU films tried too hard to be dark and edgy - to their detriment as far as I'm concerned, James Wan turns Aquaman into a frantic, fun free-for-all, and the film is better for it. The film is visually stunning, even if it goes for over-the-top craziness a lot of the time.

The film wastes no time in setting up the story, showing how a young Arthur Curry came to be when a lighthouse keeper (Temuera Morrison) finds a Queen of Atlantis, Atlanna (Nicole Kidman), wash...

"You smell like a ninety-six year old French whore's vajuju."

Imagine Barry Lyndon, but more funnier and gayer.

I've seen this movie a few days ago and when reflecting back at certain scenes I still chuckle.

Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz are great as always, but Nicholas Hoult and Olivia Colman are both absolutely terrific.

Everything from a technical stand point is masterful. Yorgos Lanthimos has yet to make a bad movie or even an average one.

One of the best of 2018.

A Rabbit Hole Worth Going Down


Netflix is no stranger to taking chances on something different. Though their track record is spotty at best on original films, Black Mirror (a twisted, technological Twilight Zone) has been a favorite of mine. Thus when it was announced there was a Black Mirror film, with an interactive twist, I was hooked. Thought this film is not perfect, it is a unique experience and one that anyone with access to Netflix should check out for as it is unlike anything else out there.

The film follows youn...

Poppins Returns - Review


“One thing you should know about Mary Poppins: she never explains anything”.

This movie had a lot to live up with it being a sequel to a beloved classic. While I’ve seen the original movie on repeat as a child - it never had that massive impact on me like everyone else, but with each re-watch I found more enjoyment and appreciation for everything that went into it.

So this being a sequel made me curious and wary; I went into this expecting nothing to avoid any disappointment. I sat down, ...

The year of Spider-Man


"Hey..."

I'm honestly astonished how much I liked this, because before I couldn't be bothered with yet another incarnation of Spider-Man.

Despite a cliched narrative towards the end with "everyone doubts the main hero and he needs to prove himself", type of trope, and inappropriate song choices during dramatic moments - yet that didn't bog down the experience for me.

Still, I wished this movie came out during my childhood when Spider-Man was my bible, as I would've ...

Open Your Eyes (Actually, Don't - You'll Die)


It's hard not to compare Bird Box to other films (The Happening and The Road are the two most obvious parallels) but where this post-apocalyptic parenthood drama manages to stand out is on the shoulders of the two lead, Sandra Bullock and Trevante Rhodes - along with the two children, Vivien Lyra Blair and Julian Edwards. The concept is interesting - something causes a world-wide wave of suicides and it's brought about by eye contact. Thus blindfolds, black-out windows and other such things mus...

Fun Underwater Adventure
Aquaman is big, beautiful, and bold despite a slightly weak story.

Aquaman (2018) Film Review


Runtime 2h 22m

Much like 2017s Wonder Woman, James Wan’s Aquaman is an entertaining look at another of DC’s titans, demonstrating that even if the team-up films continue to struggle to find their feet, the more personal tales can still highlight why these characters are immortalised in pop culture.

The story is pretty much what we have come to expect of superhero origin films for now. Nolan did it before Marvel and they’ve been killing it for 10 years since, so it would’ve been hard to re...

Gloriously over-the-top and corny, Aquaman breathes new life into the DC Cinematic Universe with its high-energy and beautifully shot action, gorgeous visuals, charismatic performances by Jason Momoa and Amber Heard, and a beating heart at the center of all the noise and CGI. James Wan directs the living hell out of Aquaman and manages to deliver the most exciting (and funniest and most ridiculous -- the sight of people riding sharks and giant sea horses had me in tears) DC film in quite some t...

Rating of: 2.5/4

Mike A - wrote on 12/26/18

Bird Box is silly as hell -- but if you just go with it, you'll find yourself totally wrapped up in it. It's a fine, solid thriller with appropriately tense moments and one or two downright terrifying moments, done well and with confidence by director Susanne Bier.
