FILM REVIEW: ROCKETMAN (15) SHOWCASE CINEMA DE LUX PETERBOROUGH, OUT NOW CAST: TARON EGERTON, JAMIE BELL, RICHARD MADDEN, GEMMA JONES STEPHEN GRAHAM, TATE DONOVAN & BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD RUNNING TIME: 2 HRS 1 MINDIRECTOR: DEXTER FLETCHERDoes Rocketman taking music biopics soaring to new heights?Seeing Elton John in concert remains one of the greatest live performances I’ve ever seen – and there’s been many.He’s the only artist I’ve witnessed getting a standing ovation after literally every song.Being the singer behind hits such as Your Song, Candle in the Wind, Sacrifice, Bennie & the Jets and Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, it’s easy to see why he’d get such a response.All these songs and much more can be heard in Rocketman.Kingsman actor Taron Egerton plays the flamboyant pop star in this biopic that delves into the singer’s larger-than-life antics: including his partnership with Bernie Taupin (Billy Elliott star Jamie Bell), his … [Read more...] about FILM REVIEW: ROCKETMAN (15)
FILM REVIEW: THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA (15) SHOWCASE CINEMA DE LUX PETERBOROUGH, OUT NOW CAST: LINDA CARDELLINI, PATRICIA VELASQUEZ, RAYMOND CRUZ, TONY AMENDOLA, JAYNEE-LYNNE KINCHEN, ROMAN CHRISTOU & JOHN MARSHALL JONES RUNNING TIME: 1 HR 33 MINS DIRECTOR: MICHAEL CHAVES A new chapter in The Conjuring cinematic universe conjures up an enjoyable enough horror – but originality is sadly in short supply.Most cultures come with spooky legends and cautionary tales about things that go bump in the night.For example, generations of Mexican children have grown up afraid of La Llorona or ‘The Weeping Woman’. Legend has it that during the 17th Century, a jealous wife drowned her two children to punish her cheating husband. From beyond the grave it is said that La Llorona roams around in search of other people’s children that she can drown in order to claim them as her own.In seventies Los Angeles we see Anna (Avengers: Endgame’s Linda Cardellini), a widowed … [Read more...] about FILM REVIEW: The Curse of La Llorona
FILM REVIEW: LONG SHOT (15) SHOWCASE CINEMA DE LUX PETERBOROUGH, OUT NOW CAST: CHARLIZE THERON, SETH ROGEN, JUNE DIANE RAPHAEL, O’SHEA JACKSON JR, BOB ODENKIRK, ANDY SERKIS, RANDALL PARK, ALEXANDER SKARSGARD, LISA KUDROW & RAVI PATEL RUNNING TIME: 2 HRS 5 MINS DIRECTOR: JONATHAN LEVINE Seth Rogan as we’ve always seen him before!We kind of know what to expect from Rogan’s (Knocked Up) movies. The actor may pretty much play the same character in every film, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. He clearly enjoys playing the goofy ‘stoner’ role, and I enjoy watching him play it – so it’s ultimately a win, win!In Long Shot, Rogen stars as Fred Flarsky, an undercover journalist who we see a white supremacist gathering at the start of the movie. His half-hearted attempts to fit in with those around us give a glimpse of the kind of film we’re about to watch . . . one that has moments of controversy and is very funny to boot!Remember … [Read more...] about FILM REVIEW LONG SHOT (15)
FILM REVIEW: HELLBOY (15) SHOWCASE CINEMA DE LUX PETERBOROUGH, OUT NOW CAST: DAVID HARBOUR, IAN McSHANE, MILLA JOVOVICH, DANIEL DAE KIM, SASHA LANE, PENELOPE MITCHELL, SOPHIE OKONEDO, ALISTAIR PETRIE, MARIO DE LA ROSA, THOMAS HADEN CHURCH & THE VOICE OF STEPHEN GRAHAM RUNNING TIME: 2 HRS DIRECTOR: NEIL MARSHALL Watching this was like experiencing Hell on Earth.What an absolutely pointless reboot Hellboy is.For years, fanboys were clamouring for a third instalment to the Ron Perlman and Guillermo Del Toro-led Hellboy (the 2004 and 2008 films) – but despite being widely-respected and critically-acclaimed, box office receipts weren’t quite enough to go ahead.Well, timed passed, and a couple of years back – with David Harbour being a major player in hit series Stranger Things – a reboot was planned that would hopefully power through the box office ceiling that studio execs were clamouring for.But this has sadly bombed – and it’s not hard to see … [Read more...] about FILM REVIEW: Hellboy?
