  • The Killing of a Sacred Deer (Film)
    Posted in: Movies & TV Shows, Reviews

    Yorgos Lanthimos, director of surreal 2015 feature Lobster, has a track record that suggests he doesn’t do mainstream movies and didn’t disappoint with the edgy, off-key The Killing of a Sacred Deer. Starring Colin Farrell as cardiovascular surgeon Steven Murphy and Nicole Kidman his ophthalmologist wife, the couple’s idyllic suburban life gets a chilling wake […]

    This much-awaited biopic about hip-hop legend Tupac Shakur had already drawn criticism from current rap king 50 Cent within hours of its release.

    Posted in: Movies & TV Shows, Reviews

    If you’ve ever wondered what else is left for monster movies when we’ve seen King Kong stomping through New York and Godzilla upending Japan, well the genre of the gigantic is turned on its head by a clever and darkly comical film called Colossal. It circumnavigates the blockbuster expectations of fifty-foot aliens, gorillas and lizards […]

Starring Garance Marillier as Justine a coming of age veterinary student from a strict vegetarian family, the meat issue is never far from the surface and you soon come to realise meat is definitely […]

  • A Cure For Wellness (Film)

This genre-bridging sci-fi, psychological thriller-horror will also have you scratching your head long after you exit the cinema and fill […]
