One Week In: Red Dead Redemption 2 (Spoiler Free)

After pre-ordering Red Dead Redemption 2 half an hour before release, you could say that I’m new to the hype. Since experiencing the wild, untamed environment and exhilarating gameplay, after only one week, I’m 100% on board.

Review: The Good Place (2016 -)

Starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson, The Good Place follows the after-life of a recently deceased woman, Eleanor Shellstrop (Bell). Amidst a heaven-like utopia, the ‘Good Place’ is a realm of the afterlife designed by its in-house architect, Michael (Danson), to reward the righteous good guys from Earth with a quirky paradise (complete with frozen yoghurt!).

Review: Passengers (2016)

Thirty years into a space commute destined to colonise a new world, Jim (Chris Pratt) and Aurora (Jennifer Lawrence), are prematurely woken from cryosleep, 90 years early. A glossy and surprisingly entertaining space venture.

Review: Alien: Covenant (2017)

Alien: Covenant, a prequel-sequel space venture that inevitably goes wrong. Covenant is a veritable upgrade from Prometheus and a strong addition to the franchise, certainly one for the fans.

Review: Get Out (2017)

It’s time to meet the parents. Not just any parents, these are totally liberal. Let’s not forget they would have voted Obama for a third term. What could go wrong?

Review: Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016)

Ever since watching an interview with Sam Neill and Julian Dennison some few months back, I knew I needed to see this film. Let’s face it, a duo whose comic timing is under the direction of Taika Waititi can only be a good thing.

Review: Free Fire (2017)

Around 7,000 individual rounds of ammunition were expended in Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire. When the first bullet left its gun, the unexpected discharge echoing around the cinema made me jump (honestly); by the end of the film, I definitely wanted more.

The Team: First Impressions

There’s something about European thrillers: they ooze style, sophistication and a dark humour that wouldn’t typically grace our screens. Their clever dialogue transcends the limitations of the subtitle, hooking our attentions from the outset. Walter Presents has a new show for us, The Team, starring Lars Mikkelsen.
