Nicolas Cage is hard to comprehend. There are times when he makes just the most god awful movies that are nothing more than a way to pay the bills such as Left Behind. Other times, he makes intense character pieces such as Pig. He didn’t utter a word in Willie’s […]

Dutch filmmaker Ben Sombogaart directs the new Netflix drama “My Best Friend Anne Frank”. The movie is inspired by the real-life friendship between Anne Frank and Hannah Goslar.

I remember watching Superman (1978) back when I was a kid. It was one of my dad’s favourite films growing up, and had everything I considered to be “perfect cinema” at the age of 10; alongside films like X-Men and Spiderman, of course. A huge portion of us first seeing Superman in his suit is […]

FORD v FERRARI, like its man & machine heroes, has some uncorrected design flaws that can tickle buyer’s remorse after you park it, but the drive home is rush enough to justify leaving complaints in the sneer garage and shifting the adrenaline joystick into release mode. In English: if you like car race movies, you’ll […]

Horror and social media (or the technological world of pop culture) have intertwined for many years now. Go back to the days where television was the big picture – “sucking the souls” of the viewer. That’s when David Cronenberg retaliated with Videodrome, a metaphor for the exposure to sex and violence in the media and the […]

While the lucrative Marvel Cinematic Universe gets most of the attention when it comes to the popular superhero genre, it’s hard to find a more anticipated movie than “The Batman”. The Caped Crusader certainly isn’t new to the big screen. First there was the Burton/Schumacher films that began in 1989. Then there was Christopher Nolan’s […]
