‘Swallow’ Film Review

Carlo Mirabella-Davis told Talkies Network that we are experiencing “this beautiful renaissance of horror”. Notably seen with the rise of political horror’s such as Jordan Peele’s Get Out and Us and Ari Aster’s Midsommer which took the entertainment world by storm, Mirabella-Davis’ feature film debut Swallow deserves a coveted spot right next to them. Back ...

‘The Invisible Man’ Film Review

It’s funny to think that just a few years ago, Universal was prepping its much-talked-about “Dark Universe,” a series of films where Universal’s classic monsters would exist in a shared universe. Upon announcing the universe, the studio also revealed that Johnny Depp was set to play The Invisible Man. However, when the franchise’s first film, ...

‘Onward’ Film Review

Pixar’s latest – A surprise to be sure, but a welcomed one Onward (2020) is the story of two elf brothers who embark on a magical journey in a world now lacking magic and wonder. I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed this film due to the low expectations I had going in, ...

‘Emma.’ Film Review

Style over substance plagues the latest adaption of Jane Austen’s classic novel Emma. (2020) is another rendition of Jane Austen’s classic coming-of-age novel about noblewoman Emma Woodhouse’s attempts to meddle in her friend’s love affairs, always with the best intentions at heart of course. This version of the story comes from feature film newcomer Autumn ...

‘The Call of the Wild’ Film Review

To boldly go where no dog has gone before The Call of the Wild (2020) delivers a refreshing take on Jack London’s classic tale. For those who don’t know, the film tells the story of a recluse dog named Buck who embarks on an epic adventure after being kidnapped from his comfortable home in the ...

‘To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You’ Film Review

In 2018, Netflix gave us a film that no one could stop talking about. What could be better than a film with an Asian woman as the lead, a new cute white boy of the month and a quirky high school romance? Its sequel. Netflix has finally come out with the sequel of To All ...

‘Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)’ Film Review

Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a wonderful, insane, action-packed DC Comics movie. I’ve thought about ways to lead into this statement, but why sugar-coat it? It is a film that refuses to abide by comic book movie tropes, creating an r-rated girl gang movie that is ...

‘Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made’ Film Review

It’s not every day that a huge studio like Disney has a film premiere at the Sundance film festival. After all, the festival is meant to act as a platform for small, indie features looking to make a name for themselves while also secure distribution from competing studios. And yet, here we are with the ...

‘Man Proposes, God Disposes’ Film Review

Man Proposes, God Disposes forced me to leave behind the precedence that big blockbuster films have left in my mind. While they are good, I needed to appreciate this in a different way. Daniel Leo gives us a story that we think we’ve seen before, but with a twist. Man Proposes, God Disposes follows a ...

‘I Am in the World As Free and Slender as a Deer on a Plain’ Film Review

Sofia Banzhaf’s short, I Am in the World As Free and Slender as a Deer on a Plain is a short film that packs a punch. Focusing on the female sexual experience away from the male gaze, Banzhaf takes what one may initially perceive as taboo and flip it on its head. The short follows ...

‘Dolittle’ Film Review

Following this film, Hollywood should consider retiring the Doctor Dolittle series. What started as a children books in 1920s has turned into a very profitable property with the Eddie Murphy films the late 90s. Frankly speaking, I didn’t think this franchise would resurface, especially with Robert Downey Jr. at helm, considering the last couple of ...

‘Cats’ Film Review

Written By: Marie Rose: Domenichini & Sophia Poulimenakos As two extreme Broadway nerds walked into the theatre to see Cats, the expectation were honestly quite low. But nothing could have prepared us for the mess this movie was about to be. Musical adaptations from Broadway normally are not the best – but they at least ...
