Love and Mercy :  Movie Review on Web WombatLove and Mercy: Movie Review

John Cusack has made some questionable film choices in the last few years (presumably due to tax reasons, much like Nicholas Cage), but Love and Mercy is not one of them. It follows a particular period in the life of Beach Boy Brian Wilson, whose entire life has been fraught with illness, distress and straight-up bad people. Read More ...

 

Wild Tales :  Latest Movie Reviews on Web WombatWild Tales : Movie Review

I love me an anthology film. Much like ABCs of Death 1 and 2, the Argentine-Spanish Wild Tales is a collection of tightly-written, well-paced mini stories about vengeance, revenge and violence. Writer and director Damián Szifrón has created six small but powerful ‘wild tales’ following six unconnected stories. There are some solid and interesting twists in the film, so I won’t give away too much. Sufficed to say, each story follows a line of vengeance, or of a violent power struggle. Read More ...

 

Deathgasm :  Movie Review on Web Wombat Deathgasm : Movie Review

Do you like heavy metal? How about rivers of blood? What about angsty teens, zombies, guts and sex toys? Even if you don’t like all those things, you might as well keep reading ‘cause what else are you gonna do? Deathgasm is a self-aware, upright and sentient beast of a film; it uses heavy metal music and artwork to drive forth the plot which, of course, is about a zombie outbreak/ Satanic uprising in a small New Zealand town.  Read More ...

 

Mission Impossible:Rogue Nation :  Latest Movie Reviews on Web WombatMission Impossible: Rogue Nation : Movie Review

Sean Harris, the looming Solomon Lane of Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, has a great face for a villain. A frowning scar of a mouth cut into his face and two little ends of the world where his eyes should be. His rasping voice makes his every word sound like a tired sigh before he kills you. One day, he's gonna be the villain in a good movie, and he's going to make you shit yourself. Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is not a good movie. Read More ...

 

Insidious 3 :  Movie Review on Web Wombat Insidious Chapter 3 : Movie Review

Ostensibly a prequel, the premise is kept as simple as possible: a teenage girl, Quinn (Stefanie Scott) trying to contact her dead mother invites a malevolent spirit (gross man wearing an oxygen mask). Desperate for help, she turns to the psychic from the first two films, Elise (Lin Shaye). Read More ...

 

Amy:  Latest Movie Reviews on Web WombatMovie Review: Amy

I’m not going to pretend that just by having listened to her music, I somehow knew Amy Winehouse. I loved her music and thought she seemed down-to-earth and funny. Music fanaticism can sometimes take the shape of some delusion that, by virtue of simply supporting an artist’s work, you are owed something by them. Read More ...

Kidnapping Mr Heineken :  Movie Review on Web WombatMovie Review: Kidnapping Mr Heineken

We never get much of a sense as to what motivated the characters past financial desperation and given a couple of them ended up as major organised crime figures once all this was over, this lack of insight into their characters seems a serious oversight. Read More ...

 

Inherent Vice :  Movie Review on Web Wombat Movie Review: Inherent Vice

If it thinks it’s a film about creepy right wing conspiracies, without realising that it’s really full of even creepier attitudes towards women; you may not enjoy everything about it, but it’s a hard film to not at least admire. Read More ...
