Film Reviews

Godzilla Godzilla

There was a time when mere mention of the word ‘Godzilla’ brought shuddering memories of Roland Emmerich’s 1998 remake, a film so brain-dead it should have been cremated and buried long before it got anywhere near the screen. So reviving a series that began 60 years ago with Ishiro Honda’s classic anti-nuclear proliferation fable but got ever... [Read more of this review]

A Night in Old Mexico A Night in Old Mexico

Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. A Night in Old Mexico opens with the above quote from poet Dylan Thomas setting the tone and themes that permeate throughout the rest of the movie. Robert Duvall returns on fine form as Red Bovie, an old time Texan rancher... [Read more of this review]

I Declare War I Declare War

There aren’t many images more disturbing than that of children playing with heavy artillery — let alone an entire film showcasing it. “I Declare War” depicts a group of children perceiving their game of Capture The Flag as a fully-fledged war; with their imagination transforming their makeshift equipment into real weapons. Set in the woods,... [Read more of this review]

Bad Neighbours Bad Neighbours

Taking the next big step and actually maturing can be difficult – especially if that step involves post-university decisions or parenting. “Bad Neighbours” displays the surreal escape from both the responsibilities and the harsh realities of life when a fraternity moves in next door. Seth Rogan and Rose Byrne are adapting to their new life as... [Read more of this review]

One Man’s Legacy: A Plot For Peace One Man’s Legacy: A Plot For Peace

The illusive figure of Monsieur Jacques, sat in his Parisian apartment discussing his role in bringing an amicable end to the racist and oppressive regime that was South Africa’s Apartheid, creates an air of intrigue and incredulity. The film instantly makes the audience demand to know who this precocious Frenchman thinks he is (how the hell can... [Read more of this review]

Ted Trailer Ted Trailer

We absolutely can’t wait to see Ted. It’s the story of Johnny (Mark Wahlberg) a regular guy who falls in love with a girl (Mila Kunis). The thing is, he’s constantly dogged by a rather special friend – a hard-drinking, pot-smoking teddy bear that came to life as a result of a childhood wish and just won’t leave. It’s... [Read more of this review]

The Expendables 2 Full Trailer The Expendables 2 Full Trailer

Can you say “KABOOOOOM!!!”?  Introduced by Sly himself (who seems to have some trouble getting the name of his movie right), it’s big  it’s loud, it’s got massive explosions, it’s got more testosterone than you can waggle a bicep at,  it’s got Jason Statham delivering some great one-liners (“I now pronounce... [Read more of this review]
