The Darkest Universe – New Release Review

The Darkest Universe, from BAFTA-nominated Will Sharpe and Tom Kingsley, is a thoroughly original British independent release that identifies the young directors as a tandem to keep an eye on. Not only is their second effort (their first being 2011’s Black Pond, for which they were nominated) able to pull off that oh-so-tricky juggling act of remaining […]

Malady – Review (Spoiler Free)

Like walking through a vivid dream, Malady only falters when you begin to wake up… For a long time Malady gets by on atmosphere and world building alone.

Begin Again – Review (Spoiler Free)

Begin Again is everything that you hope for in a feel-good summer movie. Which isn’t to say that it’s perfect, nor is it as strong a film as Carney’s previous hit Once, but with Begin Again you’ll find yourself often grinning at the unashamedly upbeat vibe and joyful celebration of music. The story of two […]
