Soul - teaser trailer

Image
Directed by two-time Academy Award®-winner Pete Docter, co-directed by Kemp Powers and produced by Academy Award®-nominee Dana Murray, Disney and Pixar’s “Soul” opens in theaters on June 19, 2020. According to Docter, the idea for the story is 23 years in the making. “It started with my son—he’s 23 now—but the instant he was born, he already had a personality,” says Docter. “Where did that come from? I thought your personality developed through your interaction with the world. And yet, it was pretty clear that we’re all born with a very unique, specific sense of who we are.” “Soul” introduces Joe Gardner, a middle-school band teacher whose true passion is playing jazz. “I think Joe is having that crisis that all artists have,” says Powers. “He’s increasingly feeling like his lifelong dream of being a jazz musician is not going to pan out and he’s asking himself ‘Why am I here? What am I meant to be doing?’ Joe personifies those questions.”

The Furies - review

Image
The Furies follows rebellious high school students Kayla (Airlie Dodds) and her best friend Maddie (Ebony Vagulans) who find themselves abducted by a sinister presence. Kayla wakes up in a box in the middle of a forest with no idea how she got there, and no idea of Maddie’s whereabouts. She soon realises she is not alone – men in terrifying masks are stalking six other young women in the woods. As the threat of more killers closes in, Kayla races to save as many girls as she can. But when the girls turn on each other, Kayla's killer instinct is unleashed and she does whatever it takes to survive and seek revenge on her abductors.
I tend to avoid horror films. Not for any highfalutin cinematic reason mind you, but because I'm a scaredy cat. I don’t particularly enjoy jump scares and pushing the boundaries of gore effects ain’t my jam. Now I’m not begrudging those who dig the genre, it’s each to their own. With that in mind, I'll muster the courage to bring you my thoughts o…

Doctor Sleep - review

Image
Years following the events of "The Shining," a now-adult Dan Torrance meets a young girl with similar powers as his and tries to protect her from a cult known as The True Knot who prey on children with powers to remain immortal...

On paper Mike Flanagan’s Doctor Sleep faces an immense challenge. Firstly it’s a sequel to arguably one of the most iconic horror films of all time; with a devout, sometimes fanatical fanbase (Room 237). Not to mention it’s dropping a mere 39 years after its predecessor. Next hurdle, it weighs in with a hefty runtime (155mins), which can test the patience of cinema goers. Plus the film must navigate the treacherous waters of familiarity versus ingenuity; showing reverence to The Shining, without being slavish to its iconography. Despite all this, Flanagan manages to deliver a wholly satisfying experience. For the record I haven’t read The Shining or Doctor Sleep.

Now I’m not the biggest fan of The Shining. I appreciate the craft on display and a…
