Atomic Blonde Review (2017)

One of Britain’s top spies, Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron), the titular Atomic Blonde, is a seductive, sultry and totally ruthless killing machine. When a list of MI6 spies active in the Soviet Union gets stolen by a KGB agent, only Broughton has the particular set of skills required to retrieve the microfilm containing the list.…

Baby Driver Review (2017)

Have you ever put your headphones on, let the music envelope you and everything else just fades into the background, your actions becoming automatic as you get lost in the rhythm of the song? That’s pretty much the life of Baby (Ansel Elgort), the titular young driver, who listens to music to drown out the…

Dunkirk Review (2017)

A tense, barrage of the senses that has brief moments of respite, Christopher Nolan‘s latest film centres on the evacuation of British forces from the coast of France, while slowly being flanked by German forces.

With complaints of being too dour or lifeless, more style than substance, it…

Alien: Covenant Review (2017)

Rated R (for sci-fi violence, language and nudity) I’m beginning to think that all scientists in the Alien universe are dumb-asses. It’s the only theory that can explain the decisions that are made by the characters in Alien: Covenant. But of course, if they did act intelligently I guess we really wouldn’t have a movie to…
