  • Moonage Daydream

    Moonage Daydream

    ★★★★

    From acclaimed documentary filmmaker Brett Morgen. Moonage Daydream is a cinematic odyssey through the creative and musical life of the late icon David Bowie, with a few glimpses into the life of the real man behind the costumes, makeup and art. 

    After the critically marred Stardust attempted to tell Bowie’s story as a conventional biopic (of which Bowie himself never wanted) and also never received the blessing and official green light from the Bowie estate… which in turn meant they…

    Clerks III

    ★★★½

    “That’s how we did it in the nineties son!”

    The third and final instalment in Kevin Smith’s Clerks trilogy and the ninth feature in his View Askewniverse. Clerks III sees Dante (Brian O’Halloran), Elias (Trevor Fehrman), and Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith)  enlisted by Randal (Jeff Anderson) to make a movie about the convenience store that started it all, after he has a heart attack that gives him a new lease for life.

    Smith has been a…

    Creature with the Atom Brain

    ★★½

    *In short*

    The 50’s B-Movie boom is a piece of genre film history that I have only really scraped the gooey outside layer of. So I thought I would take just over an hour of my day to travel back to 1955 to check out the Creature with the Atom Brain. The film sees an ex-Nazi mad scientist use radio-controlled atomic-powered zombies in his quest to help an exiled American gangster return to power. Firstly, what a great premise! Secondly,…

  • Avatar

    Avatar

    ★★★½

    A monumental landmark in the blockbuster cinematic landscape and revolutionary in its implementation of 3D technology. Avatar sees a paraplegic Marine (Sam Worthington) dispatched to the moon Pandora on a unique mission, where he becomes torn between following his orders and protecting the world he now feels is his home.

    It is quite fascinating to witness just how much the cinematic landscape has changed since Avatar released: the 3D resurgence it kicked off came and went, comic book features and…

    Batman: Death in the Family

    The latest DC animated project. Batman: Death in the Family retells the fate of Jason Todd prior and during the events of Under the Red Hood.

    Firstly, do not buy or rent the digital version of this film, as it is utterly pointless in terms of the interactive element (and main selling point) of the feature, because it doesn’t include it and secondly even without this aspect the new film you get is a complete waste of time, as all…

    Bong Joon Ho: Ranked

    Similarly to The Lighthouse this was a film that has had a lot of praise and hype towards it, so I was eagerly anticipating this to be released in the UK. Luckily there was a one night preview screening of the film near me so I got the chance to see it before it’s general release this Friday. Parasite sees the unemployed Kim family take interest in the wealthy and glamorous Park family…
