Turning Red review – pandas and pop music collide in solid Pixar caper

29 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

The release of a new Pixar film, once a major, all-attention-securing event, has received a notable downgrade in recent years, not just because of a considerable dip in quality (arguably just Inside Out and Coco are t...

The Duke review – Jim Broadbent steals show in warm-hearted 60s-set crime caper

12 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

For what has become his final feature film, director Roger Michell made this sweet-natured and genial comedy in the spirit of Ealing, which bobs up like a ping pong ball on a water-fountain. It is based on the true st...

The Curse review – a sublime crime caper with an unfeasibly brilliant cast

28 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

It’s worth prioritising The Curse just to hear the voice Tom Davis does in it. He has written himself the part of hulking weirdo Mick, a grimy, pie-stealing cartoon of a man whose tank tops are four inches too short a...

Emergency review – endearing yet stressful contemporary campus caper

24 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

Emergency, a comedy thriller about three college friends – two Black, one Latino – navigating a downpour of bad optics and decisions, traffics in several established lanes: the raucous one-last-epic-party romp a la Bo...

Rukmini Iyer se veganistiese resep vir blomkool- en amandelsop met brandrissie-olie en kappertjiedraaie

37 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

Dit is so 'n eenvoudige maar heerlike sop, gebaseer op een wat my vriendin Emily jare terug gemaak het. Die fluweelsagte blomkoolsop is 'n wonderlike kontras met die hitte van die brandrissie-olie en bros amandels, met krakerige kappertjie twis...

The Tourist review – Jamie Dornan is explosive in this Memento-lite caper

56 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

After an … interesting few years on the big screen, appearing in the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise (as the suavely sadistic protagonist – a performance slightly undermined by the actor’s clear desire to climb out of ...

Sneakers: Robert Redford and River Phoenix nerd out in 1992’s prescient, high-tech caper

50 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

A charming Robert Redford stars in the 1992 gem Sneakers, a high-tech (for its time) caper made in a post-cold war, pre-internet world when virtual reality was in its infancy and fears surrounding cyberwarfare were mo...

Stealing Chaplin review – charm pays in messy crime caper

58 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

At one point in Stealing Chaplin, a sozzled huckster tries to pry open a Union Jack-draped coffin as Land of Hope and Glory rings out on the soundtrack. Maybe this somewhat amateurish but spunky low-budget crime film ...

True Story-resensie – Wesley Snipes en Kevin Hart kan nie belaglike misdaadkaperigheid red nie

71 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

Is ons steeds verbaas dat komediante en komiese akteurs hul hande na drama kan draai? Of is ons gesofistikeerd genoeg om nou te weet dat as jy komedie kan doen, jy kan enigiets doen. Dit probeer om die ander rigting te gaan ...

Night Drive review – LA car-boot caper pulls it out of the bag

69 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

From Kiss Me Deadly to Repo Man to Pulp Fiction, the suitcase/car boot with mysterious contents has a distinct lineage in Los Angeles-set cinema. Perhaps a cipher for the city’s legendary transience and elusive promis...

TV vanaand: comic catastrophe in a country house caper

105 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

A welcome return for the heroically overambitious Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, whose misconceived genre pieces, scenery-chewing performances and internal power struggles create exquisitely calibrated chaos. Ton...

Free Guy review – irresistible gaming caper

75 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

The Canadian director Shawn Levy takes a particular joy in breathing life into things that should, deur regte, be inanimate. So the jump from the sentient statues and relics of the Night at the Museum franchise to the ...

The Croods: A New Age review – much yabba-dabba ado in caveman caper

65 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

A new age? Not really, but this sequel does feel like a rung up on the evolutionary ladder from 2013’s The Croods. It delivers more of the same Flintstones-meets-Ice Age family animation, with just as much headachy sl...

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart review – an unbelievably gorgeous sci-fi caper

87 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

At several points during my time with Ratchet & Clank – after landing on a new planet whose peculiar rocky landscape stretched off far into the distance, byvoorbeeld, or while I was zipping around a collapsing ci...

Homewrecker review - voorstedelike gyselaarkapper is 'n vroliker ellende

71 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

Dit is jammer dat hierdie Kanadese komedie-gruwel te kru saamgestel is om sy twee genres gemaklik uit te steek, omdat dit 'n paar uitbarstings van uitvindings en helder vertonings van sy hoofstukke bevat. Kosbare Chong, w ...

Nobody review – Bob Odenkirk betters John Wick in fun action caper

110 Uitsigte0 Opmerkings

For any vaguely fit actor over the age of 50, being given your own Taken was briefly seen as an enviable career boost, a chance to relive former glories, a slickly choreographed leap from an early Hollywood grave back...
