Micro-Review: Jungle Cruise (2021)

Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson in Jungle Cruise I've had a run of reviews lately that have ragged on Disney synergy and how each of their latest products (I won't say films) has been a way of linking to another of their properties in order to boost something or advertise something else. Be it all …

Micro-Review: Free Guy (2021)

Ryan Reynolds in Free Guy Its fitting that Free Guy, the video game inspired comedy directed by Shawn Levy is set in two very different worlds because it consistently feels like one that belongs to two different studios. Originally developed under the 20th Century Fox banner, Free Guy finished up production after the merger with …

Review: The Mitchells Vs The Machines (2021) – The Robot Dilemma

The Mitchells Vs The Machines I won't lie and say I don't see the irony of people like me using their personal blogs and social media to proclaim how truly great the latest animation from Sony Animations Studios and Lord/Miller Productions, The Mitchells Vs the Machines is. After all it is a film not so …

Review-Lite: The Map of Tiny Perfect Things (2021)

Kathryn Newton and Kyle Allen in The Map of Tiny Perfect Things There is nothing more timeless than the time loop movie. Be it Groundhog Day or Edge of Tomorrow (both name checked here with gleeful abandon) and honestly, considering lately, each day has the tendency to roll into the last one and so on …

Review-Lite: The Babysitter – Killer Queen (2020)

Judah Lewis in The Babysitter: Killer Queen Nobody expected The Babysitter to be entertaining, let alone funny but director McG's 2017 film was everything people didn't expect. It was charming, bloody, funny and ultimately a smart piece of horror comedy. His follow up to the series, a continuation of Cole's (Judah Lewis) story involving crazed …
