Downsizing Blu-ray Review

Downsizing

The problems facing Paul and Audrey Safranek at the outset of Alexander Payne’s hi-concept latest feature, Downsizing, are similar in nature to that of a gorgeous pair of urban elites with itchy feet, although maybe not as nuanced as the petty dispute over an alcoholic breakfast cereal kick-start to the day.

Breaking In Review

Breaking In

Breaking In is an action thriller starring Gabrielle Union who plays Shawn, a protective mother who takes her two charming children on an idyllic weekend road trip to her recently deceased criminal overlord father’s secluded estate to arrange for its sale.

Redoubtable Review

Redoubtable

Michel Hazanavicius’ latest film, Redoubtable, is an enjoyable biopic of the admired director Jean-Luc Godard that has been denounced by the great man himself. Which is nice.

Journeyman Review

Journeyman

A Wrinkle in Time Review

A Wrinkle in Time

Ava DuVernay’s Disney drenched A Wrinkle in Time features Oprah Winfrey playing a giant version of one of Macbeth’s witches in a costume originally rejected by the makers of Mad Max for being ‘a touch silly’.
