Deadpool 2: Brolin & Reynolds – Who Would Have Known? – ★★★★☆

Most superhero/comic-book film sequels are never as good as the original. Just look at the relationship between the first two Avengers films, The Matrix Trilogy, and the Iron Man franchise, but occasionally, there are exceptions: Welcome to Deadpool 2. The film immediately opens with the humour everyone wanted. Deadpool is mourning Wolverine. And from here I can’t say anything that won’t…

Kodachrome: Surprisingly Touching Road-Trip Picture – ★★★☆☆

When it comes to Netflix original films, it’s always difficult to sift through the crap to find a decent one, and luckily last night I found one. Kodachrome is based on an article wrote in the NY Times in 2010. It talked about the worldwide rush on Dwayne’s Photo in Parsons, Kansas, which became the world’s last processor…

A Quiet Place: A Cinematic Masterpiece – ★★★★☆

Lawrence plays Dominika, who starts out as one of the best ballerina’s in Moscow. After a ‘tragic’ incident, she is recruited by her Uncle (Schoenaerts) into the SVR. Based on a bestselling novel by former CIA operative Jason…

The Shape Of Water: Guillermo Del Toro’s Fairytale Is A Beautiful Yet Flawed Fairytale – ★★★★☆

Guillermo del Toro’s films are often as sensuously contorted as the monstrous creatures that lurk within them, but his latest is a pretzel-twist of pure strangeness, even by his standards. The Shape of Water is an honest-to-God B-movie blood-curdler that’s also, somehow, a shimmeringly earnest and boundlessly beautiful melodrama: think Creature From the Black Lagoon directed by…
