THE WEEKLY // A Bad Mom’s Christmas

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas, and with booze, bratty kids and bad decisions, the sequel to Bad Moms is just as “bad” as the first. Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // A Bad Mom’s Christmas”

THE WEEKLY // Jigsaw

After seven instalments and seven years since the “final” film, Jigsaw is an attempt at rebooting the Saw franchise. Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Jigsaw”

THE WEEKLY // Murder on the Orient Express

Based on Agatha Christie’s best-selling novel of the same name, Murder on the Orient Express explores one of her more thrilling cases about the spectacular Belgian detective Hercule Poirot’s. Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Murder on the Orient Express”

THE WEEKLY // Thor: Ragnarok

In atypical Marvel movie style, Thor: Ragnarok is as bizarre as it is bold. Definitely not as serious as its prequels, this Thor adventure is a colourful and ridiculous ride through the cosmos. Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Thor: Ragnarok”

THE WEEKLY // Happy Death Day

Imagine reliving your own murder over and over again! This is the reality for college student Tree (Jessica Rothe), who wakes up on the morning of her birthday, Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Happy Death Day”

THE WEEKLY // The Mountain Between Us

When an impending snowstorm grounds all flights, strangers Ben (Idris Elba) and Alex (Kate Winslet) foolishly decide to charter a light plane to get them to where they need to be. I say foolishly, but while Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // The Mountain Between Us”

THE WEEKLY // Flatliners

Code blue.

There is no rational reason why anyone anywhere decided that Julia Roberts’ 1990 thriller Flatliners should be remade. Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Flatliners”

THE WEEKLY // 47 Meters Down

I love a good shark movie. The best ones are those which allude to the threat of the shark; a fin slicing through the water, a shadow underneath a swimmer, rather than the – often disappointing – full shot of the man-hungry beast. Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // 47 Meters Down”

THE WEEKLY // The Dinner

I was eager to see The Dinner after being intrigued by the novel of the same name by Dutch author Herman Koch. I can save you the scroll down: this story is Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // The Dinner”

THE WEEKLY // IT

Pennywise the clown has been terrifying audiences for decades. His iconic image haunts many a nightmare and the trailer for 2017’s remake of IT is nothing but spooky; Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // IT”

SPOTLIGHT // Atomic Blonde

Late 1980s Berlin was a frightening place to be and not just because of all the David Hasselhoff music. However, it is here in the beating heart of the Cold War and just before the fall of the Berlin Wall, that Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) an MI6 undercover Continue reading “SPOTLIGHT // Atomic Blonde”

THE WEEKLY // Wind River

A (quite literally) chilling thriller set on a snowy, remote Native American Reservation; I would suggest bringing a nice warm jumper into the cinema with you for this one. Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Wind River”

THE WEEKLY // Annabelle: Creation

Spoiler alert: if you make a creepy doll, chances are it’ll come back to bite you on the arse. Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // Annabelle: Creation”

THE WEEKLY // War For the Planet of the Apes

Set 15 years after Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the third instalment in this blockbuster series takes us to a bleak and eerily familiar future. Continue reading “THE WEEKLY // War For the Planet of the Apes”

SPOTLIGHT // Lady Macbeth

Lady Macbeth may well be the first film I can recall that has its final shot in the actual trailer. Thankfully though, without the context, this does not detract from what is a stark, startling and surprisingly imposing Continue reading “SPOTLIGHT // Lady Macbeth”
