Should I Watch..? 'The Chronicles of Riddick'

Vin Diesel's second favourite character, if film franchise entries are anything to go by, returns for a bloated and uninspired sci-fi epic that fails to improve on the character's humble origins. Benjamin Cox sets phasers to kill for this one.

'Godzilla vs. Kong' - Does Epic Equal Good?

This is a review of the fourth film in Legendary's MonsterVerse, "Godzilla vs. Kong." While definitely epic, does the film's many human aspects ruin the film entirely?

Dolph Lundgren cast as the most powerful man in the universe sounds like good business - on paper. In reality... not so much. Benjamin Cox looks back at a cult classic that somehow overcame budget limitations and critical hostility.

fantasia-fest-fried-barry-review

Fantasia Fest 2020: 'Fried Barry' Review

Fried Barry is a nasty and absurd type of film that fuses the sci-fi, horror, and comedy genres into this remorseless turducken of a brilliantly peculiar film. It's so good because it relishes the fact that is so gross and weird.

artemis_fowl_review

"Artemis Fowl" Review

Based on a book series, Disney's next franchise attempts to fly high with a conceptually interesting premise, gorgeous visuals and atmospheric music. Unfortunately, the film immediately falls flat on its face with a dull execution, weak comedy and a cast ranging from generic to unlikable characters.

i-am-mother-review-philosophically-enlightened-but-disappointingly-predictable

"I Am Mother" (2019) Movie Review

The dystopian sci-fi thriller poses heavy questions on the affects of the human race on the environment, and touches on the growing sense of technophobia felt by modern society. The film boasts a sleek look and feel, but fails to keep you on your toes in the way you would expect from the genre.

Picard and Skywalker: The Trials of the Legendary Hero's Journey in Modern Sci-Fi

Fantasy and science fiction both utilize the hero in their stories as someone to progress the series along. Someone whom you both saw the world through and aspired to be. Lately that trope is being flipped and two characters that embody this trend are Jean-Luc Picard and Luke Skywalker.

Ad Astra at first glance can seem like more of the same in terms of previous space exploration films, but its approach is completely different. It focuses solely on the main character and is a harrowing and intimate story about the relationship between father and son.

star-wars-the-rise-of-skywalker-review

"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" Review

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is a passive-aggressive conclusion by J.J. Abrams. Frantic and light on coherent storytelling. It did close the trilogy and tied up loose ends.
