How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

Training an animated dragon after two successful previous films while appeasing the appreciative audience is the easy part. However, reaching the trilogy status while maintaining the whimsical allure of those same predecessor films is another entire story. Hence, writer-director Dean DeBlois does somewhat accomplish this feat for some more warm-hearted breeziness in the third instalment […]

Happy Death Day 2U [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

Due to the unexpected success of the original 2017’s ‘Happy Death Day’ outing the cheekily fun and frolicking fright farce was tasty frosting on the cutthroat cake. Crafty, creepy and oddly clever director Christopher Landon’s menacing romp was refreshingly twisted in its off-kilter skin. In fast forwarding to 2019’s sequel ‘Happy Death Day 2U’, Landon is back at […]

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

Well, ‘The Lego Movie’ film franchise can at least say that it had its playful run throughout the years since the original blueprint became a sensation back in 2014. This is not bad for a popular toy-turned-desired movie series that incorporated its winning charm, imagination, and wit to adoring audiences. ‘The Lego Movie’ pretty much raised the bar as […]

Deadpool 2 (2018) (a film review by Frank Ochieng)

Deadpool rules! Okay, admittedly this is an unconventional way to segue into a film review without sounding like a giddy fanboy. Nevertheless, the costumed glib-sounding gladiator is back on the scene in ‘Deadpool 2’ up to his usual trivial tricks in the Marvel Universe. After making a sensational splash as the wise-cracking warrior with the […]

Blade Runner 2049 (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

Hail to the Science Fiction gods as they came to their senses and granted upon the eagerly movie-going masses the long-awaited arrival of a stunning and opulent ‘Blade Runner’ sequel. Perhaps we should praise the understated genius and visionary mastermind Ridley Scott for his 1982 directorial accomplishment in serving up what appeared to be an underappreciated and […]

Underworld: Blood Wars (film review by Frank Ochieng)

Some things will never change within the tedious and surprisingly long-running SF/horror saga ‘Underworld‘ film franchise. The vampires will still feature sharp fangs that can pierce a hardened leather sofa with one bite and the werewolves will be hairier than the local women’s wig shop. Of course, the curvaceous heroine of this Gothic gumball machine of a […]
