REVIEW | Beware The Slenderman

There are a lot of things parents have to worry about these days. Are my kids spending too much time online? Is my daughter becoming a psychopath? Is my son going to be snatched by a mythical character that looks like an emaciated Benedict Cumberbatch in a suit?

REVIEW | A Hologram for a King

There is only one word that I could use to successfully describe Tom Tykwer’s, A Hologram for the King; average. Undeniably, horribly, average.

On Firewatch, Conspiracy, and Horror

My first introduction to Firewatch was ironic actually.  I was out with some friends at a picnic, talking about the idea of a summer away from real life. What drives a person to flee like that? What does that ultimately do to a person? A friend told me he was in the middle of a game…

REVIEW | Not that Kind of Girl

While at times the memoir offers some humour, the majority reflects the dark struggles faced by Dunham in relation to her mental health or toxic relationships.

REVIEW | Paper Planes

Considering that the film was intended for a young audience, Connelly and writer Steve Worland create a powerful screenplay, complimented by wonderful cinematography.
