Film Review: Aladdin (2019)

Guy Ritchie’s Aladdin was more often than not, hotter than hot in a lot of good ways. What I mean to say, is that it was more than just another Arabian Night. The Synopsis Smooth criminal and legendary street rat Aladdin (Mena Massoud) has his life changed forever when he helps a woman in the […]

Netflix Review: See You Yesterday

Best friends and genius’ C.J (Eden Duncan-Smith) and Sebastian (Dante Crichlow) have done the impossible – they’ve cracked the space-time continuum and now possess the ability to go back in time.

Rewatched: The Prestige (2006)

The secret impresses no-one. The trick you use it for is everything The Why This used to be one of my favourite movies; the story intrigued me and I remember feeling like I never confirmed the meaning of the ending.

Now […]

In all honestly aside from John Wick, all I know Keanu Reeves from is The Matrix trilogy (and I think I saw Constantine a few years back?). It’s been in the back of my mind to go back and watch a few of his old movies with John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum coming soon, and so I […]

Film Review: Little

Being Big is so 1988 – now as adults we spend our times wondering what it would be like to be little once more. The Synopsis Jordan Sanders (Regina Hall) is smart, confident and determined.
