Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2

Guardians

The Marvel Cinematic Universe returns to outer space with James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2; the story of Peter Quill learning about his origins. I’ll start this by saying that I had issues with the first Guardians of the Galaxy. Most of them stemmed from my personal inability to connect with the tone. Everything…

The 100 – Season 4 Episode 9

The 100

“DNR” The 100 returns from hiatus with only 6 days to go until the Apocalypse with the reality of the situation really starting to sink in for the characters. I’m really glad that the show has dispensed with last minute last hopes as a plot device for the moment as it was getting really contrived…

Unforgettable

Unforgettable

A woman finds her life with her fiancé disrupted when his unhinged ex does everything in her power to make things difficult in Denise Di Novi’s Unforgettable. I went to see this film because I thought there might be some interesting ideas behind it. A better version of this would have played up the terror…

Rules Don’t Apply

Rules

Warren Beatty’s Rules Don’t Apply tells a disjointed story of a small group of young people caught in the orbit of eccentric Billionaire, Howard Hughes. The title of this film works on a number of levels. The most obvious being that Howard Hughes was so rich the conventional rules of society simply didn’t apply to…
