Blu-ray Review: Whiplash

Blu-ray Review: Whiplash

As one of 2014’s most discussed films on the festival circuit, Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash was, and still is, the talk of the town for its ferocious and compelling portrayal of a music teacher and his explosive academic relationship with one of his students.

Blu-ray review: Big Hero 6

Review: Fast and Furious 7

Review: Fast and Furious 7

If you’re at all familiar with the formula of the previous six Fast films then you’ll know what they entail (and just in case you don’t: souped-up cars; scantily clad women; muscle-bound hot heads, and extravagant, action-filled set pieces). But after a postponed release and a number of alterations based on the untimely, tragic death of one...

Review: The Voices

Review: The Voices

Marjane Satrapi’s The Voices is particularly difficult to categorise in the sense that it’s a mishmash of all sorts: comedy, drama, thriller and horror all stapled together in a surreal, edgy package starring Ryan Reynolds. With its emergence during last year’s Cannes Film Festival, The Voices offers a role to one-time hopeful Ryan Reynolds who, to his...
