Do you like tennis? If your answer is no, the good news is Luca Guadagnino's Challengers is still very likely to be right up your alley. Or in your court. Or some other tennis pun. Much like King Richard wasn't inherently a "tennis film," this very stylish, occasionally trashy, palpably sexy, and unashamedly horny good time is more of a tantalisingly soapy character study than an introspection on the ins and outs of jeu de paume. Ménage à trois is a far more appropriate French term to be...

Adapting Frank Herbert's seminal classic sci-fi novel Dune into a feature film was a lifelong dream of director Denis Villeneuve. After years in development hell and pesky pandemic delays, the filmmaker finally received his wish in 2021. The result was a film that broke the covid box office curse and netted $450 million worldwide and Oscars for pretty much every technical artisan involved in the film bar Villeneuve, who staggeringly wasn't even nominated. Regardless, a sequel was all but assured and Villeneueve was the man to make it happen. As someone...

With a level of hype unrivalled in 2021 and a hefty bag of secrets no...

Back in 2018, Los Angeles Times freelance film critic Katie Walsh described writer/director Sam Levinson's Asssassination Nation as "a badly bungled attempt at social commentary." It's wildly ironic that very review forms part of the inspiration for Levinson's pretentiously smug Malcolm & Marie; an equally badly bungled attempt at social commentary. Filmed in the grips of coronavirus restrictions, it's an experimental film that ultimately feels like a film school project crafted one weekend by an overly-ambitious filmmaker and his two acting school buddies. This kind of restricted filmmaking is...

After Avengers: Endgame left us emotionally devastated and, frankly, cinematically exhausted, most of us likely need a breather from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Arriving just two months after we said goodbye (sob!) to several key Marvel figures, Spider-Man: Far From Home swings into cinemas, offering the joyous exuberance this franchise is fast becoming known for. While the spectre of loss hangs over this sequel, there's boundless fun and pitch-perfect humour to be found within, providing just the escapism needed after Marvel Studios shattered our souls in their previous adventure....
