Set in Kabul under the rule of the Taliban The Breadwinner is the story of a family trapped by the law. The father has been sent to prison, leaving his wife, two daughters and infant son with no way of getting food or water, for no woman is allowed outside without a male relative. Not […]
Yeah. But no. Just no. I have not read the book. Based on this film I have no desire to.
I’m not quite sure how to start talking about Annihilation. I really liked it. But plot-wise anything I say to blurb it will sound either ridiculous or way too confusing. So as little as possible then… a group of people investigate a strange phenomenon that nobody else has ever returned from. Inside “the shimmer” they […]
I know that at some point in the past I have watched Blade Runner. I do not know what version it was. I also am very aware that it has become a huge pop culture reference so that my memories of the film have most likely been altered by that fact. But I do think […]
I have vague recollections of seeing the tv adaptation that was made of this book years ago. And even vaguer of reading the actual book. I went through a Stephen King phase in my late teens I think, but I haven’t read much of his stuff since then. I don’t know if my memories are […]
Many years ago I read the first book in the Stephen King series which inspired this film. I guess the fact that I never read any more in the series says enough of what I thought about the book. But I was confused when I saw the trailer for The Dark Tower and it looked […]
After the bore-fest that was Grim vs Grimmer I didn’t hold out much hope for Wonder Woman. I had thought Gadot was one of the best things about that Supes v Bats film, but DC really haven’t had a great run of superheroes films recently. I didn’t even bother with Suicide Squad. I also don’t […]
Everything is suspect…everyone is for sale…and nothing is what it seems.
[imdb_movie_detail title=”The Lost City of Z” detail=”plot”] Sometimes when you describe a film or a book as “interesting” you really mean that you didn’t like it but don’t really want to say that. In this case that is not what I mean at all when I say that The Lost City of Z is a […]
Oh, I really enjoyed this film. So much more than I thought I would. I mean a story based on maths doesn’t sound all that entertaining. But I suppose that isn’t really what this is about, it is about the women who fought to show NASA just how vital they were to the space program. […]
Enjoyed this a lot more second time around, after more than ten years… man am I ever old.
The monster does not come walking often. This time it comes to Connor, and it asks for the one thing Connor cannot bring himself to do. Tell the truth. This is a very touching story about a boy who feels very damaged, guilty and mostly angry. He struggles at school with bullies, and pity looks […]
