The Force Is Strong With This One: Our Review of ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

So much of life revolves around that ever shifting balance of power…

With the arrival of Star Wars: The Last Jedi now in theatres we have ourselves the chapter in this saga that we not only needed but truly wanted as there simply hasn’t been a chapter of this space opera that has been so satisfying since The Empire Strikes Back and much like we hear from Luke Skywalker himself in the trailers, “This is not going to go how you think”…and believe me when I tell you; that’s a very good thing.

Having tracked Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) in his exile, …

It’s important to be able to laugh at oneself…

A group of young, raw and undisciplined assassins hire a docu-crew at gun point, to have undeniable proof that they’re the ones who will kill the most infamous hitman of all time, Gunther (Arnold Schwarzenegger). But Gunther is on to them before they know it and he makes it his personal mission to make their lives a living hell. It becomes a race against time: kill or be killed, as the hunters quickly become the prey.

Satire is always such a dicey proposition, but when everyone involved is on the same page, it …

Giveaways/Contests, Movies, VOD/iTunes/DigitalDownload ‐ December 12, 2017

No matter the language spoken, the problems we all have are truly more universal then we ever care to admit.

Performed entirely in Yiddish, a language not used in cinema for many decades, Menashe follows a kind, hapless grocery store clerk as he struggles to make ends meet and responsibly parent his young son, Rieven. But in the wake of his wife Leah’s death, tradition prohibits Menashe from raising his son alone, so Rieven’s strict uncle adopts him, leaving Menashe heartbroken. Meanwhile, though Menashe seems to bungle every challenge in his path, his rabbi grants him one special week with Rieven …

The truth can often be a lot more upsetting then fiction…

Detroit is a fact based tale that drops us into the middle of the 1967 riots where unrest is everywhere and tensions have never been higher.  When a group of rogue white police officers respond to a complaint in a black neighbourhood things go from bad to worse as these men have retribution rather then up holding justice on their minds.

Sometimes movies are a hard but a vital watch and Detroit is exactly that, and thanks to our friends at eOne Films we have some copies on Blu-Ray to give …

While you can’t help but appreciate the sense of style and scope that comes to the table with The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One it’s just a little too scattershot only really coming together in the third

The Urgency of Quirky: Our Review Of ‘The Other Side of Hope’

I have to admit that I am not the biggest fan of Aki Kaurismaki. He’s fine but there are other directors I can go to if I wanted quirky and stilted movies. Although there’s an urgency to his new film The Other Side of Hope.

It touches on the same subject as Le Havre but it feels more effective this time around. And it’s mostly due to the imagery that he takes better advantage of this time around.

Kaurismaki’s not afraid to much up his sterile pastel surfaces with soot. A man emerges from a pile of coal. Another leaves his bathroom …
