On Repeat

Everyone has those shows or movies that they could watch on repeat and not get tired of it. This is my personal list of some of the tv shows and movies that I can watch and never get tired of. The Mummy (1999) The Mummy has been one of favourite movies for years. Its become…

A Knights Tale Review

May Contain Spoilers   This movie has always been a favourite of mine.  The movie is based on “a Knight’s tale” from the Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer.  Health Ledger stars as Will Thatcher a poor man who dreams of changing his fate and becoming a knight. On his journey, he is helped by his…

Suburbicon Review

May Contain Spoilers I have been interested in watch this movie since it was screened at TIFF. I didn’t get the opportunity to watch it then. Which is just as well because I got the opportunity to watch the Cured (which was my last post so feel free to check that out.) So, when Suburbicon…

The Cured Review

May Contain Spoilers TIFF is one of my favorite times of year. Its a really great way to see some interesting and unique movies as well as some interesting experiences. Last night I had the opportunity to do both. I saw this Irish produced movie starring Sam Keeley and Ellen Page. And I had the…

The Discovery Movie Review

May Contain Spoilers This movie was recommended to me by a friend a few months ago. However it took me a little while to get to it. But I am glad that I got around to it eventually. The Discovery is one of those movies with a big surprise twist at the end. But the…

Atomic Blonde Review

May Contain Spoilers Back in May I wrote about the trailer for the Atomic Blonde movie. So I wanted to do a follow up review based on the actual movie. Atomic Blonde is based off the graphic novel The Coldest City and set during the end of the Cold War, right around the time that…

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets Review

May Contain Spoilers I hadn’t really given the Valerian movie much thought before going to watch it in theatres. After watching it I did a bit of research which made things fall into place a bit more. Throughout the movie, I got a very strong Fifth Element vibe which makes sense because Luc Besson directed…

Spiderman Homecoming Review

May Contain Spoilers If it hasn’t been made clear before I really enjoy comic book movies. DC or Marvel, it doesn’t really matter if a movie is coming out I’m probably going to watch it on the opening weekend. So of course I made my way down to my local theatre last Friday night to…

Baby Driver Movie Review

May Contain Spoilers A few weeks ago, I wrote a review about the trailer for Baby Driver. Recently I went out and watched the movie and figured it would make sense for me to give an update or a fully formed opinion now that I have seen the movie. Overall I did enjoy it but…

Wonder Women Review

Recently I had the pleasure of watching Wonder Women. And I can honestly say it was a pleasure. I went into that movie hopeful but a bit wary. Movies starring women in more male geared genres have an extra challenge at the box office. If it’s a bad super hero movie starring majority males cast…

Thoughts on Being A Token

After posting about Atomic Blonde yesterday I have been thinking a lot about women especially women of colour in the media. This topic has been given a lot of focus in recent years and for good reason too. A few years ago, I heard the story of how Whoopi Goldberg credits Nichelle Nicholas (from the…
