‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ (2015) Review

Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) Review: My first Bond movie was ‘Casino Royale’. I had heard of the legend of James Bond and the spy genre was one that I was familiar with even though I’d never seen a spy movie myself. Films like the Incredibles, the Austin Powers franchise

‘The Wedding Ringer’ (2015) Review

The Wedding Ringer (2015) Review: Romantic comedies are probably one of the most laughed at genres of film out there. The high brow critics will tell you time and time again of their many tropes. Their characters are shallow, their stories are unbelievable and more than anything else, everyone in

‘The Fault In Our Stars’ (2014) Review

The Fault In Our Stars (2014) Review: Romance is a tricky thing to portray in cinema. Simply because, everyone has their own idea of love, relationships, and intimacy. Just recently it was revealed to me that most of my colleagues are of the opinion that one should not enter into a

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) Review: Almost a decade ago, Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer did what many thought to be impossible.

‘Frozen’ (2013) Review

Frozen (2013) Review: Musicals are horrible. They’re full of characters that break out into catchy songs that are juxtaposed with sometimes intense and complex feelings. They are either done in solitude in which ancillary characters ignore the fact that their new governess has taken to address them in melodic rhyme,

‘Thor: The Dark World’ (2013) Review

Thor: The Dark World (2013) Review: Let’s face it, sequels by and large are a gamble. More often than not they struggle to find the balance between continuing the development of the characters from the original while constructing a story worthy of a minimum 90 minutes. Characters usually are left

‘Elysium’ (2013) Review

Elysium (2013) Review: One of the most important rules of story telling is “show, don’t tell”. Essentially, what it means is that, instead of explaining the importance of something to the viewer, the story teller needs to simply show it as it is and trust that the viewer is invested
