Sentinelle Review

Sentinelle was released slightly under the radar last month by Netflix - in fact, I only even noticed it existed when Netflix sent me a press release with a big photo of Olga Kurylenko looking slick and cool which immediately nabbed my attention. I watched the trailer - a big no no usually - and found myself intrigued, so gave it a shot. At a lean 1 hour 20 minutes, […]

Coded Bias Review – Timely but Tiresome

Coded Bias represents both the best and the worst of streaming documentaries. On the one hand, Coded Bias has exceedingly important things to say about the way technology can be racist, sexist and classist, targeting the poorest communities and destroying lives. Conversely, it's an overstuffed and frustratingly long mess that spends only half of its 1 Hour 25 minute running time giving you new information. The rest is filler, the […]

Secret Magic Control Agency Review

It's exceedingly difficult to accurately review a movie like Netflix's new animated offering "Secret Magic Control Agency". On the one hand it doesn't have the lavish budget of a Pixar production, nor the years worth of complex, tried and tested experience of something like Studio Ghibli. It's a Russian made animation, translated into English with voice acting and screenwriting that leaves a lot to be desired, but for a Netflix […]

Run (2020) Don’t run from this incredible new thriller

Run (2020) Dir: Aneesh Chaganty, Running time: 1 Hour 30 Minutes, Availability: Netflix, Hulu (US) If you managed to catch director Aneesh Chaganty's powerhouse Searching in 2018, you'll know how much of a command he has over intense psychological thrillers. Intense is definitely the term I'd use for Run, a film that straddles the line between Stephen King and newer directors such as Fede Alvarez to create one of the […]

Made In Italy – James D’Arcy’s directorial debut is all filler, not enough villains

Made in Italy (2021) Dir: James D'Arcy, Running Time: 1 Hour 34 Minutes, Availability: Amazon Prime Video As far as cyrupy, sugary, family themed cry a lot and hug dramas go, Made in Italy is pretty much paint by numbers. The film follows Jack and his estranged father Robert, played by Micheal Richardson and his real life father Liam Neeson, as they rediscover their familial bond whilst trying to rebuild […]

A Week Away Review – Netflix’s new Christian musical hits all the wrong notes

A Week Away is Netflix's first foray into the burgeoning world of Christian cinema. Whilst its an oft mocked genre due to plot contrivances and low production values, it's undeniable there's money in Christian movies and I can't blame Netflix for taking advantage of the growing demand. I can, however, blame them for creating this bland, unoriginal and simply dull musical. A Week Away follows Will, a foster kid who, […]
