Review – The Personal History of David Copperfield

„A fresh perspective on Charles Dickens’s favourite of his own novels, from co-writer/director Armando Iannucci, best known for sitcom The Thick of It, its spinoff movie In the Loop, and The Death of Stalin. Those are all political satires, of course, whereas David Copperfield is more of a shaggy dog story; though its attracted some […]

Review 2 – The Personal History of David Copperfield

„As a writer and director of motion pictures, Armando Iannucci has so far stuck to the absurd brutality of politics, both the modern day, lightly fictionalized kind (In the Loop) and the historical kind (The Death of Stalin). These are every-man-for-himself stories in which human lives are used like poker chips. And so an adaptation […]

Review Fatima – CineFilm

„Based on true events that occured in Portugal in 1917 that have since been the subject of changing folklore, how this faith based religious drama will be perceived will be based by the viewer’s own beliefs. For example Catholic Christians will welcome the story of the apparitions of the Virgin Mary with such open arms, […]

Unhienget 2020 Review

„Russell Crowe is going to save cinema! So goes the marketing push for road-rage thriller “Unhinged,” the first new film to open in theaters since lockdown. Yet it’s worth acknowledging that Crowe hasn’t exactly saved cinema in the past decade, where “Les Misérables,” “The Water Diviner” and “The Nice Guys” are the only moderate highlights. […]

TESLA 2020 Movie Review – Ethan Hawke, Eve Hewson, Eli A. Smith

„One of the most difficult things to convey onscreen is human thought, particularly what happens when an epiphany washes over us. We do, of course, have an accepted shorthand for these moments in animation. Most commonly depicted by the image of a lightbulb going off above a character’s head, we watch as their eyes widen, […]

Stage Mother – Review – Lucy Liu, Calem MacDonald, Adrian Grenier

„Jacki Weaver takes centre stage in Stage Mother. A bittersweet tale of acceptance and forgiveness, all wrapped up in hosiery, hairspray and high heels. When a conservative church choir leader inherits her late son’s San Francisco gay club, she is forced to confront its crippling debts, its co-owner and son’s husband and her own prejudices. […]

Tenet 2020- Review – John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki

Early in Tenet, there is a moment when a research scientist, played by Clémence Poésy, is trying to explain the movie’s new reality. It involves an idea called “inversion,” which is a way for characters to manipulate time and warp the world, in order to achieve their goals, both noble and sinister. After a while, […]

THE SPONGEBOB CGM – REVIEW – Tom Kenny, Bill Fagerbakke, Carolyn Lawrence

„That’s the only predominant thought I had coming into Sponge on The Run. The third film based on the 20(!)-year-old Nicktoon is one of the first major theatrical releases during the current COVID-19 pandemic – at least in Canada, anyway. The US won’t get the movie until 2021 on VOD. Will this be the movie […]

THE SPONGEBOB – REVIEW – Sponge on the Run

„Especially for 90’s kids, one of the hallmark trademarks of adolescence was coming home from school and binge watching Nickelodeon and their plethora of sitcoms. It wasn’t until 1996, where Nickelodeon decided to expand their properties onto the silver screen with their debut feature Harriet the Spy. This resulted in a slew of successes, including […]
