Black Panther – Review

Though I am a movie critic and many times when I go into a film I’m looking at it through an analytical lens; I am still one of the biggest cinephiles I know and want nothing more than have a pleasant time watching a marvelous (pardon the pun) film in my natural habitat: the movie […]

The Cloverfield Paradox – Review

Ten years ago, Cloverfield took me by surprise and was a pleasant and welcomed one, becoming one of my favourite films to date.

Insidious: Chapter 3 felt like Leigh Whannell, the […]

All the Money in the World – Review

Ridley Scott may not regularly be branded as one of the most visually stunning directors (though, some of his films surely are) nor does he have a distinct texture throughout his filmography much like Steven Spielberg or Martin Scorsese do. What I am confident in saying, though, is that the 80-year-old Englishman is the greatest […]

The Greatest Showman- Review

Step right up to P.T. Barnum’s spectacular world of curiosities. The Greatest Showman is a film filled with magical moments that are fun for the whole family. Much like Hugh Jackman’s character, Barnum, The Greatest Showman hooks audiences with a web of lies and exaggerations, and yet, audiences leave the film feeling good. Though the […]
