Ralph Breaks the Internet’s Exploration of Online Culture Isn’t Flawless, But It’s a Lot of Fun

Ralph Breaks the Internet is an insanely ambitious movie. It is jam-packed with fascinating ideas and important themes to go along with all the humour, heart, and excitement one would expect from a Disney Animation film. For the most part, that ambition adds to the film, providing it with memorable scenes, emotional heft, and timeliness. Other times, though, it can hold it back a bit – if only because balancing and weaving all those pieces together can feel a little forced. Read More >>

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Is Criminally Underbaked

There’s a moment near the end of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwaldwhen I realised the scene I was watching could have been the second one in the movie. Instead, it was near the end, climactic and important. Yet it took so long to get here and everything that happened prior was so superfluous to the events unfolding, it dawned on me that the latest film in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World simply wasn’t up to par. Read More >>

Bright Eyes Axed From BBC’s Watership Down Reboot

Art Garfunkel's legendary solo tune Bright Eyes has been sensationally booted out of the BBC's baffling and uncalled for CG reboot of Watership Down, with the sad rabbits to get a theme tune recorded by some young buck who goes by the name of Sam Smith instead. Read More >>

A Star is Born Isn’t Showing At Vue Cinemas Due to Ongoing “Discussions”

I don't know about you, but if a mainstream film gets released, I expect to be able to see it at whichever cinema chain takes my fancy. And usually, that is very much the case. Providing the film isn't a more obscure title getting a limited release, whether your local cinema is a Cineworld, Vue or Odeon, that latest Hollywood release will undoubtedly be scheduled to show at some point. Apparently that isn't the case for A Star is Born, a film released last week starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. For reasons that remain pretty unclear, it currently isn't being shown in Vue cinemas. Read More >>

First Man Gives Humankind’s Greatest Adventure a Personal Touch

For a movie about going to the moon, First Man sure is grounded. That’s a good thing though, mostly, as the film provides a layered and at times painful look at what that legendary trip cost not just America but also astronaut Neil Armstrong. However, First Man is not a hugely patriotic roller coaster like Apollo 13. Director Damien Chazelle has taken one of humankind’s greatest adventures and turned it into an intimate character portrait. It’s engaging and emotional, but just the slightest bit underwhelming.

“First Man” Would Work Better If It Told The Story From Buzz Aldrin’s Perspective

It seems surprising that until now no one has really tried to make a film about Neil Armstrong. The first man on the Moon will be rightly remembered by history as a hero. The problem is, as First Man demonstrates, being a hero doesn’t necessarily make you interesting. Read More >>

Councils Overrule BBFC to Show Sweary Northern Drama to Kids

Modern movie drama A Northern Soul -- which follows the hard life of Hull warehouse worker and hip-hop fan Steve -- has benefited from a campaign to downgrade its BBFC rating, with several local councils deciding that some swearing and the odd f-bomb is no reason to give the worthy film about the realities of present day life in the city a 15 rating.
