REVIEW: ‘Frozen 2’ is Clearer and Sharper than the Original

“All this to say, in Frozen 2 Anna and Elsa feel like real characters, not just props Disney uses to sell toys” Frozen 2 knows that it’s a sequel to one of the most important Disney movies of the last few years. Regardless of what you actually thought of the original Frozen – I found…

LFF Review: “Guaranteed to thrill and exponentially increase doughnut sales” – Knives Out

“Keeps you entertained and surprised for the entirety of its runtime”  In a week where British Twitter is admiring the investigative skills of Coleen Rooney, Rian Johnson’s Knives Out is a kooky whodunnit that exists perfectly within this shady, social media era.  As an avid reader of Agatha Christie, my expectations were high and still…

REVIEW: “Treads water over territory previously explored” – ‘IT: Chapter 2’ (2019)

“Engaging, but lacking in thematic depth.” IT Chapter 2 finishes off the Loser Club’s story with a behemoth of a film that’s fixated on the past. Of course, this seems fitting considering that this film’s events rely on the 27 year cycle of the central shape-shifting creature. There’s definitely room to explore how time has…

They demand, or suggest, that perhaps the most compelling stories center around those we haven’t heard from, or haven’t listened to. If there’s anything we can glean by paying attention to which films and series are…

Best Of 2019 So Far – Hayley Paskevich

2019 has been quite the year for me already, filled with adventure and unforgettable experiences. It’s also been a year that’s produced an outpouring of media content when it comes to the landscape of film and television (and I’ve seen a lot of films and shows this year!). So, when it came time to take…

Best Of 2019 So Far – Derek Sharp

2019, you good fam? It’s no secret that 2019 hasn’t consistently delivered quality cinema, at least from where I’m standing. I’m sure the festival circuit is popping, but most people don’t get to go there. This summer has been especially dry, with several big-budget blockbusters turning out to be, uh, not great.  With all that…
