MAGIC MIKE XXL (GREGORY JACOBS - 2015) REVIEW
One of the most racially and sexually progressive films of the past decade, Magic Mike XXL goes a lot deeper than the pelvic thrusts of its stars by offering a hilarious and fluid road trip movie that dominates the first instalment in every measurable way.
REVIEW: THE GATEKEEPERS (Dror Moreh - 2013)
When you're reading or experiencing historically significant event/crises, you often wish that you could be a fly on the wall in the halls of power to observe those tasked with making the tough and occasionally world changing decisions. Well, documentary filmmaker Dror Moreh does just that shining a light on the evolution of the Israeli/Palestinian relations since the 'Six Day War' 1967 through the succession of six former heads of the 'Shin Bet' - Israel's Secret Service.
REVIEW: Father's Chair (Luciano Moura - 2012)
Grounded in the importance of valuing your family above all and with an optimistic outlook on national togetherness, director Moura delves into the emotionally challenging relationships between parents and children, and how our destiny is defined by the relationships we cherish most.
REVIEW: ELYSIUM (Neill Blomkamp – 2013) - 2nd Opinion
The issue here isn't that the trailer was misleading but the opening twenty minutes was. The Occupy movement is worthy of the big screen treatment and everything hinted at this being the answer.
