I arrive now at the end of this journey with a finished film that I’ll happily admit cannot do justice to the well from which it’s drawn. This may be a poem that resists adaptation.
Free Guy is a wonderful film, straight up heartwarming, laugh out loud funny, intense in part and adorably cute.
A film based on a Disney land ride….that has to be a first! And it very much plays up to the “theme ride” feel, at least initially, with a point at the start of the movie where the Rock’s character, Frank, captaining a battered, run-down, riverboat, takes tourists on a cruise through his very own […]
Space Jam: A New Legacy is Warner Brothers shamelessly shaking the nostalgia tree. Our review is more entertaining than the film...

It is also a film that I have very […]
Joker isn’t an action packed, explosion filled, Superhero trope laden caper, replete with cheesy jokes and one liners.
