Wonder Park (2019) [a film review by Frank Ochieng].

It sort of feels sacrilegious in browbeating what appears to be an innocuous children’s animated film about a young girl’s wild imagination to offset some personalised pain as she pals around with fuzzy animals in a surreal amusement park. This is indeed the foundation for the flimsy kiddie fantasy ‘Wonder Park’ that trivialises the instilled […]

Us (2019) [a film review by Frank Ochieng].

The obvious question remains: can filmmaker Jordan Peele serve up a worthy sophomore offering to his 2017 breakout psychological horror hit ‘Get Out’ that totally revitalised the goose-bump genre into another captivating level of imagination and introspection?

Adventures Of Captain Marvel (1941) (DVD film serial review).

Captive State (2019) [a film review by Frank Ochieng].

If one is going to call its edgy alien invasion SF flick as compelling and intriguing as ‘Captive State’ , then it better live up to the promising hype of its chest-pounding titular label. Co-writer/director Rupert Wyatt (“Rise  Of The Planet Of The Apes’) serves up the fundamental concept of a shadowy SF/fantasy thriller that boasts […]

Here’s the trailer for the live action movie based on the Dora the Explorer cartoon series,  Dora the Explorer Lost City of Gold, which comes across as young Lara Croft meets The Goonies. It actually looks quite fun, which is a pity, because I really would have far preferred to loathe it.
