SOLO – Yet Another Star Wars Story…

I skipped SOLO in theatres, as I was not the least bit interested in seeing it, but I recently caught it at a friend’s place, who had bought the digital version of the film, so I am ending up reviewing it after all. Right of the back, I want to mention that SOLO did not…

Bla Bla Bland – La La Land (2016) Review

After a very long summer break, I am back with more movie reviews and we start things off with La La Land (2016). I skipped this one, when it came out in theatres and only recently got around to viewing it. With films that are talked about a lot, I often like to wait until…

Life Is Like a Musical

It’s been a long summer break and now it is time to populate this section with some of my daily experiences. I believe the reason why I come up with creative stories and why I love to do so, is because my life often plays out like a TV show, a movie or a musical.…

Ready Player One (2018) – “Shut Up, Steven!”

Before I begin the review, let me disclose that I did not read the book and thus have no background understanding of it or its characters. This is based entirely on my viewing experience of the film. Ready Player One is entertaining; it contains many goofy moments, but ultimately it is also full of clich├ęs,…

Tomb Raider (2018) – The First Good Video Game Movie

Video game movies suck. They all do; there is no exception. That is the general concensus. While I personally enjoyed Prince of Persia, I tend to agree with the sentiment; that is until today. Tomb Raider (2018) is a fantastic screen adaptation of the rebooted Tomb Raider game franchise. I cannot praise this film enough.…

Black Panther (2018) – Just another MCU film?

Black Panther (2018) is a solid addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with an important message for us voters and our political leaders. Black Panther delivers another origin story that is not an origin story, much like Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017). In a world filled with superhero films, you would think we would finally get sick…
