The hopes were high for this one. With an excellent first trailer and a good amount of hype surrounding the film and the performances, I was hoping for a really good, effective horror experience. Did it live up to this early promise? Starting with Annie Graham (Toni Collette) eulogising at […]

Hereditary



After the success of their foray into computer-animation in the shape of the Shrek trilogy and Madagascar, DreamWorks Animation in 2008 brought about the introduction of a new kind of hero. A panda. But not just any old panda, this is a panda who knows kung fu. A Kung Fu Panda if you […]

Ready for a nostalgia trip down memory lane? Except this time it is nostalgia trip to a nostalgia trip: In 1998’s The Wedding Singer we were transported back to the high (contrast) life of 1985.

Gu-nam (Ha Jung-woo) tries to cobble together enough money, working as […]

Na Hong-jin’s first feature length film The Chaser is a fantastic first effort that shows a great deal of talent and no small amount of craft. Not only in the directing but also assisting in the writing of this film which was inspired by the events surrounding the real-life Korean […]
