I liked Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and I can’t believe I’m saying that. Yes, we all know that Jurassic World (the one with all the product placement) was a bloated, capitalistic mess, but I genuinely found some fun in the sequel. Not because of Chris Pratt, because personally, I’d be happy if Chris Pratt died […]

After confirming the absences of Denis Villeneuve, Roger Deakins, and Emily Blunt, and with the title of Soldado finally decided at the eleventh hour, I was concerned about what exactly I was going to be seeing at the screening of the Sicario sequel. However, the acting calibre of both Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro delivered […]

Alex Strangelove is a tale about a teenager who is confused about his sexuality, and aptly the narrative of the tale itself is also a bit confusing. This story is told rather messily, with some jumping narratives involving Alex and not fully focusing on the “gay” side of what is a “gay” story. The movie […]

If anyone is wanting to subject themselves to an intense amount of emotional anguish this week, then I’d suggest watching Ryan Murphy’s film, The Normal Heart. Set in 1980’s New York, the film follows the founding of the Gay Men’s Health Crisis, as volunteers try to spread awareness of the AIDs crisis. Based on Larry Kramer’s […]

It could also mean neither of these options, because I don’t know your life. But for Kevin McCallister, he spends his nights ingeniously […]

From the English joy that brought you Love Actually, snuggle yourselves down for the masterpiece that is About Time. Usually the phrase “you’ll laugh, you’ll cry!” is a stink cliche that tells you nothing about the actual content or flavour of the film. However, you will genuinely laugh and cry because Domhnall Gleeson (yes, Brendan’s […]

In celebration of our opinion issue, I am going to do a movie review of a movie that presents semi “controversial” opinions. Dear White People centres on the biracial character Sam, who is navigating life in college, and being an active voice speaking out on the nuances of systematic racism towards black people on her […]

Hey fam, you’re allowed to watch shit films. I know, as a film writer, I should be shilling for the newest film that any old white dude with a good reputation has got coming out. It’s only sensible. Lars Von Trier’s got a new film out! Let’s all watch that! He’s a genius, an incredible […]

A slow burning psychological thriller, this documentary follows the lives of various orca whales kept in captivity, and the heart wrenching consequences of keeping these creatures in a space equivalent to an isolated prison cell for years on end. At the heart of this story is Tilikum, an orca whale blamed for the deaths of […]
