The Accountant ⭐⭐

(In-Flight movie #5) Besides wasting the talents of great supporting actors such as J.K. Simmons, Anna Kendrick (again), Jean Smart, Jeffrey Tambor and John Lithgow, Ben Affleck’s portrayal of an autistic assassin/forensic auditor feels more like a Funny or Die sketch and I just can’t take his character seriously. Desperately wanting to be a cross […]

A Cure For Wellness ⭐

(In-Flight movie #4) Gore Verbinski’s latest is a slickly shot and pristine looking film that fails in every other aspects. Too pretentious to be scary while the story is too preposterous and corny to work as drama, it has a poor man’s Leonardo DiCaprio, Dane DeHaan, as an unappealing lead and that is before we […]

Trolls ⭐⭐½

(In-Flight movie #3) Aimed squarely at kids, especially tweens, the simplistic story is very broadly sketched with them in mind, even though we are talking about Trolls being eaten alive by Bergens. With the main theme being that happiness is inside all of us and the saccharine and seizure inducing colours used, this film should […]

Table 19 ⭐⭐⭐

(In-Flight movie #1) Relatively inventive wedding themed rom-com infused with the DNA of Breakfast Club as the focus is on the titular last table at a wedding party where they seat all the misfits, or as the film explains: those people who ticked Yes when they should’ve replied No. Not everyone’s back story works but […]

The Mummy ⭐️⭐️

The Mummy Returns.  Oh dear, I wish she hadn’t. Less ‘Curse of the Mummy’, more ‘Curse of the Film-goer’, this is a disappointing Mash Up of ‘Tom Cruise movie’ and ‘Universal Horror’.  A major misfire from one of the biggest film stars in the world, this is a terrible disappointment. From word go, dialogue is […]

The Mummy ⭐️⭐️1/2

Similar to last month’s non-starter of a King Arthur franchise, it is not surprising to see why the prospect looks grim for the latest remake of The Mummy which is supposed to set up the new Universal Monsters universe. As a big special effects extravaganza, there are only 2 or 3 set pieces but except […]

Wonder Woman ⭐⭐⭐⭐

An Amazonian warrior princess  (super) -heroically assists in the struggles of the 1st World War. An admission  – the recent run of DC movies have left me cold. Whereas Marvel has managed to – excuse the pun – assemble a coherent series of Superhero movies, each with their own style, yet each existing within an […]
