Train To Busan Review

Well, I couldn’t have picked a more appropriate film for the current times, could I? There I was, watching a virus spread through the population, causing panic and hysteria, then I turned off the news, and put on Train To Busan instead. Entirely obvious jokes aside, I had picked up Train To Busan as a recommendation from my…

A Word on Retrospective Censorship

Over the past few weeks, there have been a few instances of what I have titled here as ‘Retrospective Censorship’ meaning, an older property that has been pulled from release or edited, as it isn’t deemed acceptable in modern sensibilities. At this time of especially heightened racial tension, I believe some of it is a…

Blade Runner 2049 Review

When it comes to long-awaited sequels, it’s fair to say that the weight of expectation is fairly heavy, especially when you’re following up a beloved cult classic that had no apparent need for a sequel. Still, it has been shown before, that in the right hands, a long-gestating successor can be just as successful as…

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi Review

Trilogies seem to be the desired thing in the world of entertainment; for every film, it is seen fit to do a sequel for, a third instalment isn’t usually far behind (and sometimes a fourth, fifth, sixth, etc…) and this makes sense if the story demands it, sometimes the traditional three-act structure can’t be covered…

Blade Runner Review

Well, after last week I reviewed a film whose behind-the-scenes dramas were more interesting than the final product, I thought it prudent to review a film that was as interesting as its production stories. Not really, of course, this was already wheeling across the firing range and I needed something fun to write for the…

A Look Back at May

Another month indoors and more films on my list that I haven’t gotten round to yet; it’s strange, I can attend a cinema many times a week and never fail to motivate myself to want to see more, but stuck at home with nothing else to do, I just can’t find the energy or desire.…

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Review

This past week marked the 40th anniversary of Empire, and as followers of my Twitter account will know (@NathanKenMajor for those wondering) that it also won a little competition I put together called the ‘World Cup of Films’ beating out close competitors The Lion King, Alien and Parasite.  While this is only a small testing pool, given my modest follower…
