Deliverance Review

Deliverance Studios: Elmer ProductionsPublisher: Warner BrosPlatforms: CinemaRelease Date: Out Now Deliverance is a film I learnt about during my youth as a film which was uniquely confronting.

Pretty in Pink Review

Pretty in Pink Studios: Paramount PicturesPlatforms: CinemaRelease Date: Out Now Pretty in Pink is one of the quintessential John Hughes teen comedy films and is much beloved by audiences. I am someone who categorically dislikes teen movies largely because screenwriters often fail to properly depict the delicate balance between youth and maturity that teenager characters really should be. I honest...

The Princess Bride Review

The Princess Bride Studios: Act III CommunicationsPublisher: 20th Century FoxPlatforms: CinemaRelease Date: Out Now I first saw The Princess Bride back in high school when I was 13. I remember deriding the film for its name and its (assumedly) feminine tones and themes. Oh golly, how wrong I was… To see whether the film has held itself up in my eyes into adulthood, I headed on down to George St ci...

Heathers Review

Heathers Studios: Cinemarque EntertainmentPublisher: New World PicturesPlatforms: CinemaRelease Date: Out Now I first had Heathers described to me as “Mean Girls but with a serial killer”, which sold me immediately on the concept. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed the musical numbers from the stage musical adaption of the same name but I had not ever actually gotten around to seeing the original film. ...

Heat Review

Heat Studios: Regency Enterprises, Forward PassPublisher: Warner BrosPlatforms: CinemaRelease Date: Out Now I had first heard of Heat years ago, when I still had a keen passion for performance, from an acting teacher who raved about the performances and editing of the film. He was a pretty good teacher and I remembered the recommendation to this day, so when I saw that the film would be in this se...

Labyrinth Review

Labyrinth Studios: Henson Associates, Lucasfilm Publisher: TriStar Pictures Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now Overview After watching The Dark Crystal, I settled in for the long haul to watch the second film in the In the House double feature; another Jim Henson cult classic: Labyrinth.

The Dark Crystal Review

The Dark Crystal Studios: Henson Associates, ITC Entertainment Publisher: Universal Pictures Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now Overview I’d always heard the name Jim Henson spoken about with reverence in the many (mainly geeky) circles that I move through. I’d only ever seen The Dark Crystal, a seminal work of his, on my computer screen quite recently (I kid you not within the last year) and...
