Downsizing: Film Review

Alexander Payne‘s Downsizing was one of the films I was so excited to see at LFF, which is why it was one of the most disappointing. It had such an intriguing and original concept, but it just didn’t know what to do with it.

Ghostbusters (2016): Film Review

ghost2

The remake of the 1984 classic comedy Ghostbusters has been hit with hate from day one and, even though I love the original, I was excited by the cast and what they could do with it. The criticism the cast and director/co-writer Paul Feig have received is unfair, and I desperately wanted this to prove the haters wrong, so I’m very happy to report it did. It’s far from perfect, but it’s not the travesty you have been lead to believe.

Top Films for July

july1

A new month is here and once again, here are the films I’m most excited about seeing – sadly, nothing on the list is an original idea and it’s mainly sequels or reboots/adaptations. There are a number of obvious choices I have missed off the list for legit reasons, such as Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (this was popular before my time), The Legend of Tarzan (I’ve seen it and I don’t recommend), Central Intelligence (it’s alright) and The Neon Demon (I don’t think I’ll like it).

I love Kristen Wiig so I’m just drawn to every film she’s in but Welcome to Me had an interesting concept, I haven’t seen much of her dramatic work, and she is supported by a terrific cast including James Marsden, Wes Bentley and Tim Robbins. It debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2014 and was released in the U.S. in May last year – how has it taken this long for us to get it?!

I’m loving the Ghostbusters trailer

I think it’s safe to say that the reaction when the female reboot of Ghostbusters was announced was mixed at best. It certainly divided people but I was on the fence and wanted to wait for something so I could make an informed opinion. And now I have it in the form of the first trailer and I am very happy.

002

The Zoolander 2 premiere tonight was probably the most fun premiere in a long time. The cast turn out was fantastic, they were all on top comedy form and they all seemed genuine friends and happy to be there. See inside for my pictures and round-up featuring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Penelope Cruz, Will Ferrell, Christine Taylor, Kristen Wiig and Justin Theroux, plus surprise guests Natalie Dormer, Luke Wilson, Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac.
