La La Land – New Release Review

It’s rare to live a film so completely as one does La La Land… How in the Hell do you follow up a masterpiece like Whiplash? Young go-getter Damien Chazelle made minor waves with his début film, Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench, and engaged in a little bit of script-doctor work to support […]

The Big Short – New Release Review

An important and entertaining film, albeit one which doesn’t quite deliver as it should… The Big Short aims high. It looks to make a smart, darkly comic film about the financial crash of 2008 which doesn’t patronise its audiences, doesn’t ignore the devastating affects of that disaster and yet which is also funny and entertaining. It’s hard to make […]

The Place Beyond the Pines – Review (Spoiler Free)

Cianfrance’s second film after Blue Valentine (also starring Ryan Gosling) is once again a film dealing with turmoil and human struggle, even though in scope his two films are close to being at opposite ends of the spectrum. Blue Valentine was a very intimate examination of a relationship between two people over a number of […]

Blue Valentine – Review (Spoiler Free)

Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams both give their all to their roles in this indie drama, and although it could benefit from a trim to tighten it up, Blue Valentine certainly gets a must see recommendation from me. The film tells the story of a relationship and its struggles, and I’ll warn you now – […]
