Mini Reviews: Us, Shazam!, Pet Semetary

In Movies by Ent Dem TeamLeave a Comment

It’s been a slack few weeks for me on the review front. A little bit of writer’s block and a whole lot of uni work. So here are some quick thoughts on Us, Shazam! And Pet Semetary. Us: If there was concerns that Jordan Peele was a one-hit-wonder, that are best dismissed now. Clever, strange and unnerving best describe his …

‘Captain Marvel’ Review

In Movies by Ent Dem TeamLeave a Comment

With the ending of Avengers: Infinity War, there was a question of how does one resolve that finale, to undo that snap of Thanos’s fingers? The hint was in the end credits and the answer was Captain Marvel, a previously unknown hero in the MCU. It’s a big weight to carry to be that but additionally this is Marvel’s first …

The elusive month of February somehow tricked us into missing a watchcast, our podcast about movies and TV. We talk Harry Potter Movies, Oscars, You’re The Worst, True Detective Season 3 and more. There was an internet issue in the back half of the show and there probably is some sync issues (although not major ones). As always enjoy!

Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse Review

In Movies by Steve MagillLeave a Comment

It’s not exactly a secret that Marvel (and in turn Disney)have had a stellar year. From the success of Black Panther to that finale of Avengers: Infinity War to the sass of Deadpool 2. What is more surprising however is that they might just have saved the strongest for last with Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse. It’s hyper stylised visuals and  …

Creed II Review

In Movies by Steve MagillLeave a Comment

Creed has to be one of the most pleasant surprises in recent movie history. A reboot of sort that honoured the Rocky legacy while carving out its own. Its success then unsurprisingly led to a sequel and while Creed II is a disappointment in some sense, its disappointment is more the fault of a successful previous film. It is good …

‘Widows’ Review

In Movies by Ent Dem TeamLeave a Comment

In recent years there has been a well-intentioned trend toward rebooting beloved franchises with all-female casts. The problem hasn’t been the intention, but the use of sub-par material that hasn’t exactly allowed the idea to shine. The fault has never been the use of gender as a selling point (although the worst parts of the internet would have you believe …

Everyone loves a Queen song, right? Their epic rock anthems are always a staple of any classic music list and an instant sing along at a party. But do you want to know the true story behind the band, particularly enigmatic front man, Freddie Mercury? Well Bohemian Rhapsody supposedly offers the ‘true’ story behind it all.

‘A Star is Born (2018)’ Review

In Movies by Steve MagillLeave a Comment

Boy meets girl is probably the most common summary of movie plots ever. The poor lover transformed by the rich one is probably second on that list. Yet actor Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut , A Star is Born is exactly both those plots. It’s not even the first but the third version of A Star is Born. So what does …

‘First Man’ Review

In Movies by Steve MagillLeave a Comment

The landing on the moon in 1969 is an iconic moment in human history but it’s also a story well told. From speeches to imagery it is something inherently familiar. Yet with the interest in space exploration re-emerging as private companies get involved it would seem like the right time to re-tell it. So, we have First Man a retelling …

Mission Impossible-Fallout Review

In Movies by Ent Dem TeamLeave a Comment

The Mission Impossible franchise has been quietly hard at work, building mind-blowing action sequences and clever characters, slowly increasing critical credibility and box-office taking at the same time. To be completely honest, besides the odd Mission Impossible 2 none have been anything resembling bad yet never completely a classic either. This all changes with Mission Impossible-Fallout which sets itself apart …
