Film Review: The Mummy (2017)

So, The Mummy returns…. and I’m not talking about the 2001 sequel to the original 1999 movie staring Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz. No no no, I make reference to the reboot of said original franchise which swaps out Fraser for Cruise, the Desert for London, and has a bigger picture in mind than stopping […]

Film Review: Wonder Woman

Let’s just address the sexy elephant in the room and say that they couldn’t have cast a more wondrous woman to play the titular symbolic icon. Wonder Woman may be a fictitious character, but Gal Gadot sure does make you believe. Hot Damn. Created by Zeus, the Amazons where put on earth to thwart the […]

Finally Watched: Big (1988)

Big was one of those movies that I was sure I had watched, but actually never did because I was constantly getting it confused with Robin William’s Jack and Fred Savage’ s Vice Versa –¬†and I’m sure I’ve only seen one of those anyway. Frustrated by […]

Netflix Review: Party of Five

If you follow me on Twitter (@JustJen_02) then you would have seen me tweet earlier this month:¬†Party of Five on @NetflixUK feels so surreal. The whole 4:3 thing is annoying but I’m loving the nostalgia nonetheless. When I saw Party of Five on Netflix I was instantly transported to my childhood home where I would […]

Finally Watched: Boyhood (2014)

You don’t want the bumpers, life doesn’t give you bumpers. Boyhood – the coming of age movie that starred Ethan Hawke, took 12 years to make (using the same actors), and was spoofed and referenced up and down Hollywood almost as soon as it was released. That was the extent of my foreknowledge before I […]

Film Review: Power Rangers

The Breakfast Club power-up and do a little more than dance on tables and run around empty hallways. They’re just as misunderstood but now they’ve got a different means to channel all that teenage angst – and it may or may not involve giant robot dinosaurs. A remake of Haim Saban’s television series, Mighty Morphin […]

Film Review: La La Land

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling pretend to know what it’s like to be struggling artists in Hollywood. A quintessential actress and hipster musician come together and tick all the right boxes in this Romance movie that may or may not be on some pretty heavy drugs.
