(Review by Cinephiliacs Contributing Writer: Lisa Davy) So, recently I took a trip to the cinema with my family to see a movie we’d been anticipating for months – Wes Andersons new stop-motion animation ‘Isle of Dogs‘. This was Andersons second foray into this medium, having previously adapted Roald Dahl’s ‘Fantastic Mr Fox‘. We all loved that movie, so thought we’d give this one a whirl. The … Continue reading Isle of Dogs (2018) Review
I will begin this by saying that I am a big fan of the book, Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline. I read it a few years ago and couldn’t put it down, it was beyond entertaining, it was nostalgic and it was overflowing with concepts and ideas that I thought were truly brilliant. I was surprised when I heard about the movie rights being … Continue reading Ready Player One (2018) Review
It will be hard, no… near impossible, to keep this to one sole list. This will likely result in numerous parts, because the 1980s gave us so many amazing horror films.

I was in-between on this one when it came out, unsure whether I really had any interest in it, but my wifey fancied it, so we watched together. Written by Jenny … Continue reading The Greatest Showman (2017) Review
Well, here we go with another “Top Ten” or “Ten of the Best” type of articles. Marvel and DC movies and comic books get plenty of press, with the movies being so high-budget and, much of the time, done very well. It’s a shame, then, to ignore the comic-book flicks that aren’t from these Universes. So, I figured it would be cool to look at … Continue reading 10 of the Best Non-Marvel/DC Comic Book Movies
The year was 1988. The summer was hot. The World was obsessed with television and movies, and a whole generation of E.T fans were ready for something new, something better, something with a small alien who would capture their hearts again. But, instead they got Mac & Me. People sat in their neon sneakers, with their hair moulded into mountainous peaks. Bags and bags of … Continue reading Do You Remember: Mac & Me?
