All The President’s Men Review

Director: Alan J. Pakula Starring: Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman It is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that All the President’s Men is a movie more preoccupied with the procedural side of the Watergate scandal than digging into any palpable emotional value. After all, we don’t get much insight into the personal…


The Host Review

Director: Bong Jong-ho Starring: Song Kang-ho, Byun Hee-bong, Park Hae-il, Bae Doona and Go Ah-sung With Parasite Bong Joon-ho garnered international acclaim and popularity, even conquering the Academy Awards which have historically been elusive to foreign language films. Despite its unprecedented success Parasite was, in the context of its directors’ career, simply another evolutionary step….


Marriage Story Review

In 2005 Noah Baumbach released The Squid and the Whale, a film telling a story of divorce witnessed from the perspective of two children. It was a film full of anger and confusion, as events far beyond the control of its two young leads spiralled out of control in front of them. Fourteen years later…

The kind of film that isn’t just exhilarating, but is relentless in its action to a point where you find yourself grabbing the arm of…

Mission: Impossible – A (Not Very) Brief Look At The Franchise

It’s hard to pinpoint precisely when Mission: Impossible became the revered franchise that it is today. With five films from five different directors, it stands as a unique series in the landscape of modern filmmaking wherein everything is designed to be cohesive and have a connective tissue. Every Mission: Impossible movie stands on its own…


Black Panther Review

Director: Ryan Coogler Starring: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis So, on the one hand, Black Panther is a big deal for merely being another instalment of the juggernaut that is the MCU. But then, of course,…
