So, a review for the new Shudder original The Power is over on Soda & Telepaths and you should read about this fun little haunted hospital flick.
You know, it’s funny that we’re about a week away from the Academy Awards and yet I’m here bragging about the fact that I also have won an award, one I might not have known about were it not for fellow award winner Film-Authority bragging about theirs. A very real case of they showed me theirs so now I’m showing mine, for I too am on the Screench list of best movie critics.
I even get to put this image on my blog, which I will do here and also somewhere else on this page when I figure out how to do that because WordPress editing is hard (it’s partially why I haven’t changed the header, that and I have no design skills and can’t make a good header)Continue reading “Screench Award Winning Blog”

There are films that rely on a great script, films that rely on their visual prowess and then there are films that rely on the talents of a single actor. A star vehicle can come in many forms and many levels of quality, some of the biggest flops of all time have been films that leaned on the talent of a single actor… and then there are the films that rely on a single actor’s charm that actually end up working, such is the case with News Of The World.Continue reading “News Of The World (2021) – Nobody Doesn’t Love Tom Hanks!”

Do you know the worst part about living in Australia while trying to do film criticism (or whatever we’re going to call what I do on this blog that I run)? There are so many films that I will just never be able to see in a legal manner, not through any local streaming services anyway. We live in a global marketplace where I can have just about anything I want sent to me from anywhere in the world, but movies appear to be one of the exceptions to this rule.Continue reading “Run (2021) – Thrillingly Fast”
Guess who talked a little more about that Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode? You know, the one that made everyone go “THE FUUUUUUUUUUCK?” at the end? Yea, that’d be me over as Soda & Telepaths.

One of the weird things I have noticed since starting to review films is how some of them will stick around long after viewing, and some start moving out of my head the minute I’m finished. For example, one of the first films I watched as a reviewer was Get Out and I may have watched it once since reviewing it but I remember almost every single frame of that thing. Meanwhile, I saw Chaos Walking around a month ago and the only thing I remember from that film is Tom Holland’s in it… that’s it, that’s all I’ve got. Some films just refuse to be remembered… though, it’s a very rare film that makes me start forgetting I watched it while I’m still watching it, but The Midnight Sky did that.Continue reading “The Midnight Sky (2020) – The Sky Is Forgotten”

I’ve made it no secret that I do not like the Apple+ service that much. I find its layout to be subpar and its content to be so sparse that I can’t imagine paying for it at all. Honestly, I only have it because I got a few years for free and even with that I’ve still never been that bothered to use it even when they finally put an app on game consoles meaning I can actually watch their limited content on the TV.Continue reading “WolfWalkers (2020) – Wolftastic!”

I believe it was the legendary French film analyst Dr Je Plaisante who said “Do you really need me to give you a fancy explanation to begin the review about Godzilla vs Kong, the film where a giant ape punches a giant lizard? Does Godzilla vs Kong look like a film that needs analysing? Do you get how silly it is to think Godzilla vs Kong is anything more than a joyous ode to destruction? I’m not even a real film analyst, my name is literally French for the phrase I’m Joking, that’s how pointless this entire review is!”… or something like that.Continue reading “Godzilla vs Kong (2021) – Lots of Monkey Business”
Since I’ve been doing catchup on Oscar films, Nomadland was inevitable… and I did it on Soda & Telepaths because I was going to get to a screener with them before *gestures at plague*, but once I saw it I was happy to post it there so go read and enjoy my thoughts on this obvious Oscar film
Over on good old Soda & Telepaths, I wrote about the third episode of the hit series Falcon & The Winter Soldier… Zemo is becoming too precious, stop making me love him!
