• The Horrors of Hollywood: The Race Gap

    Ah, Hollywood. A land of films, fast cars and movie stars. Also a land of dinosaurs apparently. The recent “Oscars so White” scandal certainly shone a light on Hollywood’s problems with representation in regard to awards contention. However, this proves to be only part of a larger issue that plagues...
  • Oscar Diversity and The Inclusion Rider

    Last week I complained about how white the Oscars (and therefore Hollywood) are to this day. What I lightly brushed upon is just how male-dominant the film industry actually is. To start, Frances McDormand had surprised a lot of people on Sunday when she left the stage after collecting...

But guess what? Rocky is back, and this time as the trainer! Any fans of the franchise will...
  • Film Review – Fantastic Four

    In 2005, Tim Story gave us The Fantastic Four, followed in 2007 by Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Both films were fun but critically ridiculed and the planned third outing was never made. Eight years later, with Chronicle director Josh Trank now at the helm, the Fantastic...
