Read Time:19 Second

The two most frightening periods of the Cold War between the West and the Iron Curtain were the decades of the 60’s and the 80’s. The early 80’s heralded the new Cold War with the arms race picking up speed as US President Reagan and British Prime Minister Thatcher pressed hard to defeat the Russians […]

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

Read Time:18 Second

While it is extremely difficult for me to claim which film is the best comedy, drama, action, or horror, I have no qualms in stating what I think is the greatest science fiction movie ever made.   That would be Stanley Kubrick’s, “2001: A Space Odyssey”, and it is not even close.   2001 is in my […]

Easy Rider (1969)

Read Time:20 Second

A funny think happened in the latter part of the 60’s, as the free-love, counterculture youth movement spread throughout America.   Small budgeted independent film studios understood that they had an untapped audience looking for something different.   The Biker film emerged at this time, with its outlaw heroes and rebel culture.   These were mostly forgettable movies […]

“We humans are more concerned with having than with being.” Justin’s rating: I only use 8% of my brain, mostly for dad jokes Justin’s review: Luc Besson isn’t the kind of director and writer that I associate with masterpieces. He’s the kind of guy I go to for a fun and flashy ride without necessarily […]

‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ (2022) Review: “Netflix Franchise Massacre”

0 0
Read Time:20 Second

It’s impossible to recreate the magic of 1974’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Shot on a shoestring budget in Texas heat, pervasive rotten smells, and the like, many consider it to be the scariest film ever made, an assessment I agree with. As with any success, sequels followed. And remakes. And prequels. Prequels ignored sequels, sequels […]

A heartwarming coming-of-age tale about a young girl who can sing, but is also a Child of Deaf Parents. A brilliant argument for inclusiveness, both in storytelling and in life. Highly recommended.

Malleable. The plot will be tricky to describe without breaching spoiler territory, but this is about a father (Vincent Lindon) who gets to see his long-lost son again… or does he? Now, this has been getting very positive word-of-mouth, and I managed to walk into it cold. The trailer doesn’t even begin to tell you […]

Read Time:21 Second

You have probably seen his artwork but not known who the artist was.  Louis Wain’s whimsical illustrations of anthropomorphic, large-eyed cats singing carols, playing golf, enjoying plum pudding or just posing against a psychedelic background have elated cat fanciers and others for over a century.  Now, Will Sharpe (TV’s FLOWERS) has brought Wain’s “electric” but […]

The Power of the Dog (2021) Movie Review By Gianni Damaia

0 0
Read Time:28 Second

It is a movie about the pressurised containment of toxic masculinity, and the power of sexual promiscuity. Campion’s film was designed to be an indulgence, one in which the viewer is meant to seep each and every mindful detail out of its rich atmosphere. The beautifully captured Australian plains are cast and feature as a wholly realised character in the mountainous Montana fields. Campion’s watchful eye calculates each visual as its own unique puzzle piece in a bizarre and twisted story.
