Review: The Emoji Movie ┐( ̄ヘ ̄)┌

The Emoji Movie had me with low expectations with all the bad reviews and yet gave me some cheap shallow laughs. Just don’t think and you can get through it. By Jeremy Say The Emoji Movie is a piece of art, just not a very good one. Nuke this to kingdom come I say, this critically lambasted movie was obliterated by the currently controversial site Rotten Tomatoes. So it stands to reason that this movie had no chance at all at the box office. Yet, I find myself curious enough to attempt watching a bad movie. As it turns...

Movie Review: Baby Driver

By Muhammad Nabil Rating: 9/10 Admittedly, I had my doubts when I heard Ansel Elgort was cast as the protagonist of the film. I mean, after a decent stint as Gus Waters in The Fault In Our Stars and an overall (really) whiny showcase as Caleb Prior in the Divergent series, I can safely say I wasn’t exactly thrilled after hearing that one of my favourite movie genres was about to be tainted with his bland and emotionless acting. Even the presence of Hollywood heavyweights like Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx weren’t enough to balance it out. However in...

Review: Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk

By Jeremy Say Dunkirk is Christopher Nolan’s latest World War II film is about the miraculous retreat of British forces from the Germans at Dunkirk.

The reason I need some extra time, is simply that the scope of this movie is larger than expected. This not a movie to go watch while sitting back and relaxing if you really want to get the most out of...

REVIEW: War for the Planet of the Apes

As someone who had never seen the last two Planet of the Apes movies, I went into the cinema not knowing what to expect. Matt Reeves, at the helm of the ending installation to the trilogy had standards to uphold, but how would they play out? I needn’t have worried, because to be absolutely honest – the movie was in all aspects beautiful. For those of us who were unfamiliar about the origins of the Apes, included minimalistically were a few paragraphs of their backstory – a very considerate inclusion from the production side. This movie follows the manifestation...

REVIEW: Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man has come home. Marvel’s most popular superhero made his entry into the MCU proper in Captain America: Civil War in a show-stealing outing – in what was a good but overall underwhelming slice of superhero action that served more as a setup to a fresh status quo. Now, in his third big screen incarnation, Spidey returns, played by Tom Holland as a fresh-faced 15 year old who’s just beginning to learn the ropes as the webslinger. Plot Homecoming sees Peter Parker return home to Queens after the rush of battling alongside – and against – the Avengers, and...
