Blade Runner: 2049 Review – A Worthy Successor

This will be a spoiler free review. Blade Runner: 2049 growls at you with a weight that presses down on you. This is a world that wants to bury you, and it starts with the sounds, fills out with the visuals, and flourishes with the story. It’s sound design is industrial and oppressive, but it’s…

Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets – A Hot Mess I loved

I’ve been amped for Valerian for a while with it’s campy style and balls to the wall visuals. Directed by French Director Luc Besson, director of “Leon”, “The Transporter” franchise and most importantly “The Fifth Element”, the movie oozes eccentricities everywhere. Luc grew up on the French comic Valérian et Laureline as a kid, and from the…

Dunkirk, Dat Sound Though

I’m not sure what sold Dunkirk better, the theatre or the team Christopher Nolan gathered to put together some breathtaking pieces of cinematography and sound design. Matt Rust, our inhouse professional with an opinion and I got to see Dunkirk on the massive IMAX screen normally reserved for 3D films. This time I was pleasantly…

Eiza González, the true bad ass in Baby Driver

While people might spend time complaining that Lily James, ostensibly the love interest in Baby Driver, spends most of her time dicking around doing nothing in particular, people tend to overlook Eiza González. With a couple titles under her belt in Mexico, she came into the greater public consciousness when she took up a leading role…

Okja Is a Wack as Fuck Movie

Apart from people who mark “vegan” as their favourite movie genre, I’m not sure who this film is for. On one hand It’s dropping F-bombs willy nilly and showing pretty disturbing shots of animal abuse, on the other it’s about a 13 year old chasing around a giant genetically modified pig in a simplistic plot…

Baby Driver Is a Near Perfect Movie

What Wes Anderson has done for symmetry in film, Edgar Wright has done for rhythm. Baby Driver will have your adrenaline pumping and your toe tapping from start to finish as the soundtrack carries the protagonist, the titular Baby (played by Ansel Elgort who was a part of our style shoot in the latest issue), through the fluid…

4 Movies to Check Out in July

Welp, Wonder Woman has come out, so that pretty much puts a wrap on June. I mean sure, if your into Transformers that comes out later this month but ugh to that. So what do we have to look forward to in July? Spider-Man: Homecoming Following on from Captain America: Civil War, Spider-man, who’s been…

Baywatch, Better Than You Think

Baywatch is currently sitting on 18% on Rotten Tomatoes, but that’s not the score you should be watching. On the same site it has an audience approval rating of 70%. So before you shrug this movie off as probably being a steaming turd ask yourself, do you want to see some hot girls? Do you…

Aquaman Movie Announced – Look at all this Hype

DC is racing Marvel to the bottom of the barrel toward finding the most boring superhero to make a movie about. Marvel came out swinging with Ant Man but their tried and true method of OK movies stood them in good stead. DC pulled off a master act of releasing Batman Vs Superman and are…
