'The Snowman' – Review

It was a humid day in Melbourne and I was glad to get inside the cinema to watch the premiere of The Snowman, hoping the air-conditioning would be as freezing as the evocative visuals of director Tomas Alfredson. Particularly those stark, stunning shots of the wintery Norwegian snow-covered hills around Oslo and Bergen, as advertised in the film’s trailer.

'Spider-Man (2002)' Retrospective – Review

With all the buzz regarding the new Spider-Man movie and Tom Holland bringing to life the third attempt of the web-slinger in just 15 years, it’s fun to look back at what was attempted not that long ago. So if you wanted to see how Marvel’s rendition of the wall-crawling hero measures up to Sony’s earlier attempts, never fear, I’ve saved you from having to watch over 4 hours of Peter Parker crying over his dead Uncle Ben, again.

'Patriots Day' – Review

With only just under four years since the Boston City marathon bombings, one would think that a movie based on the events would be considered ‘too soon’, but it’s safe to say that Patriots Day delivers a heartfelt and gut wrenching depiction of actual events, without a hint of exploitation.
