    The Fifth Element

    ★★★

    The Fifth Element is the epitome of a 90's over-the-top comedy sci-fi turned cult classic. It follows Korben Dallas (Bruce Willis), an army man turned cab driver, when he involuntarily gets involved with a mission to save the world. Its special effects are well done, mixing practical effects with CGI almost seamlessly.

    The acting is competent throughout, even if Chris Tucker's performance as camp radio DJ Ruby Rhod is over the top and definitely polarising. The movie is funny at…

  • Hail, Caesar!

    Hail, Caesar!

    ★★★

    Hail, Caesar! takes us on a noir comedy set in the golden era of studio Hollywood. One day during filming, actor Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) disappears from the set, and it's up to production manager Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) to sort everything out.

It's a chilling story about how brutal the events were, and how helpless the Dutch UN forces were in handling the situation.

    Djuricic delivers a powerful performance, and the…

    Wonder Woman 1984

    ★★★

    If you've missed the cinematic language of an 80's action/adventure movie, you've come to the right place. Exaggerated acting from extras, over-the-top scenes, extravagant set design, accompanied by an exuberant Zimmer score; everything aligns with a vision. In addition, Pedro Pascal as a capitalistic show-man con artist, complete with flailing gestures and TV smile, and Gal Gadot's calm yet powerful heroine, really shine.

    And yes, it has some major plot holes, some shoddy visual effects, and it falls a bit…
