    ”Luck doesn’t live on this side of the border”

    If Denis Villeneuve's Sicario walks upon the scorched earth of racial bigotry and fiery condemnation of minorities in an impulsive circle of moral exclusion and blood-fueled repetition - Stefano Sollima’s sequel, Sicario: Day of the Soldado, tightens the grasp tenfold,
    choking all efficaciously engulfed in the smoke-filled detention of evasive liability. Sicario 2 is the natural progression in the depraved callous world written by Taylor

    ”The Screenslaver interrupts this for an important announcement”

    A 14-year wait and inexplicably torturous Cars trilogy later, Disney and Brad Bird have finally released the long anticipated follow up to their 2004 critically acclaimed hit The Incredibles and the result is a fabulous concoction of artistic impression and flair, albeit with a diluted and simplistic venture into the known. The spine of Bird’s is the strenuous and often hilarious thematic element of…

    “This isn’t going to end the way you want it to”

    To describe Skyscraper as simple as possible would be to say it’s Die Hard without the positives. It is, unfortunately, a coma-inducing CGI fest with so little charisma and flair that’s oppressed within a deliberating sense of false grandeur and lacklustre destructive extravaganza that neither entices nor impresses.

    ”When you find a deer, everything just falls into place”

    Jody Hill’s long-anticipated return to film in the NETFLIX exclusive is, unfortunately, a lacklustre and underwhelming attempt at lampooned maladroit family dynamics, concocted with a stuffy script and an unclear handle of the versatility of Brolin and a wasted McBride.

    “Let the past die. Kill it, if you have to. That's the only way to become what you are meant to be”

    Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi is a bitterly disappointing, flat, tiresome, and ultimately disastrous attempt at wanting to stand out against the norm. The tone is completely utterly wrong for such a massively important episode in a franchise that needs to go darker…

    “In time, you will know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right. Yet to fail all the same. Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives”

    Avengers: Infinity War is an incredibly ballsy film, far more so than the recent controversy surrounding Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It doesn’t evolve storytelling, or filmmaking for that matter. If you’re an avid fan of the franchise you won’t find…
