    Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 Review


    Released in 2011, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs was an unmitigated success for Sony Pictures Animation. It’s hardly a surprise then that a little over two years later, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 is upon us.

    Le Week-End Review

    Le Week-End

    Le Week-End marks somewhat of a return to smarts for director Roger Michell. After helming two disappointments in a row (the mildly entertaining Morning Glory and the dreary Hyde Park on Hudson), Michell reteams with regular screenwriter and friend Hanif Kureishi for their third feature collaboration and an altogether richer affair. Together, they’ve carved a […]

    EIFF 2013: This Is Martin Bonner Review

    This Is Martin Bonner

    Writer-director Chad Hartigan follows up his softly received directorial debut Luke and Brie Are on a First Date with This Is Martin Bonner, a thoughtful, well-acted and subtle character drama that scooped the Best of NEXT Audience Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. It’s minimalist and quiet, sure, but that’s what enables this film […]

    EIFF 2013: Monsters University Review

    Monsters University

    Disney•Pixar continue their long-standing tradition of unveiling their new films at the Edinburgh International Film Festival with Monsters University.

    EIFF 2013: Breathe In Review


    The 67th Edinburgh International Film Festival opened softly last night with relationship drama Breathe In. Reuniting blossoming British actress Felicity Jones with writer and director Drake Doremus, whose last feature Like Crazy deservedly scooped the Grand Jury Prize at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, Breathe In may feel and look like a more adult effort, […]

    EIFF 2013: Ten Films To See

    The Big Wedding Review

    The Big Wedding

    An all-star cast fall victim to a shallow, tasteless script in The Big Wedding, the latest in the line of lacklustre comedies to hit cinema screens this year.
