Jupiter Ascending (2015)

The first time I heard about the Wachowski’s new sci-fi space opera Jupiter Ascending was the news last year that the film’s release had been delayed from Summer 2014 to February 2015. At the time nobody quite knew why this was the case, with the official reason being extra time needed to polish off effects,…

Selma (2015)

Ava DuVernay’s newest directorial effort Selma marks the end of an awards season majoratively dedicated to the biopic and the true story.

A Most Violent Year (2014)

My latest cinema trip can be literally described as a battle of the Oscars. The two choices at the top of the list this week were both films starring Oscar Isaac, sci-fi thriller Ex Machina or crime drama A Most Violent Year.

American Sniper (2014)

Clint Eastwood’s latest directorial offering, American Sniper, has certainly been the surprise hit of the season both in terms of box office success and awards recognition. Smashing opening weekend records left right and centre and picking up six Academy Award nominations in several major categories, the film that tells the story of the life and…
