The Invisible Man

Genre:  Thriller / Drama

Cast:      Elisabeth Moss

Oliver Jackson – Cohen

Aldis Hodge

Storm Reid

Directed By: Leigh Whannell

Most people choose invisibility as their super power. To hear what people think of them, to rob banks and to watch movies at the cinema for free apparently.  This movie is not about that! With technology the way it is today, if someone said that they created something to make themselves invisible I would totally believe it.

Elisabeth Moss was brilliant, having watched The Handmaid’s Tale; I can definitely see why they cast her to play Cecilia Cass.  Cecilia Cass is the wife of a brilliant scientist Adrian Griffin (Oliver Jackson-Cohen). She is stuck in this abusive marriage and gets out with the help of her best friend and sister.

Adrian commits suicide and leaves Cecilia an inheritance but knowing Adrian for a long time she believes that it isn’t true.

The Invisible Man has your attention and keeps your heart levels jumping with suspense. The camera work has a lot to do with this eerie feeling that you are being watched, amazing! There a few plot holes towards the end but all in all very entertaining and definitely worth the watch. If you are into psychological thrillers then this one is definitely for you.

Last Christmas

Genre:  Comedy / Romance / Drama

Cast:      Emilia Clarke

Henry Golding

Michelle Yeoh

Emma Thompson

Directed By: Paul Feige

FINALLY!!! The best part of the year has come! It is Christmas movies time! And yes Die Hard IS a Christmas movie.

Last Christmas has all the makings of a heart-warming, brain mushing, fuzzy, tear jerking and cuddling movie. If you are looking for a date night movie to watch with your special someone this holiday, stop reading this and book your ticket NOW. Trust me, it is worth it.

I absolutely LOVED this movie, and not only because it had Wham! And George Michael music. The acting was really good but for me Emma Thompson stole the show. We all know what a brilliant actress she is but in this movie her acting was on another level amazing and she co-wrote the script as well. Hats off Emma!

Usually Christmas movies are predictable, girl + boy then trouble and finally happily ever after, this movie leaves you shocked and “wow! I did not see that coming”. As it is the holiday season, Last Christmas leaves you with proper holiday feels, love and appreciation for your family and friends and grateful that we actually do have people who love and care about us that we can just go and give a great big hug to just because they exist.

Always look up :)

If you enter our home you will always either find a sport or news channel on, always! Even if you don’t always mean to, you pretty know more or less what is going on in the world. My husband is a massive conspiracy theorist and this is mainly because he wants to know the truth of what really happened.


I happen to love reading and have read my fair share of views of what happened in 9/11 had no idea how deep this actually went. The movie was not only eye opening but insightful and thought provoking as well.


The acting was nothing short of superb! I did a double take and had to take 3 and four looks to make sure that I was really looking at Christian Bale. Steve Carell surprised me in this serious role as I more used to seeing him as a joker because of the office.


A movie you definitely do not want to miss and trust me you are definitely going to be doing some research after watching the movie because you just need to know!

Mathilde Olivier

Iain De Caestecker


Directed By: Julius Avery


I am not one for gory movies in a hurry, action yes, thriller yes, but gory horror nope. When I first saw the trailer of Overlord that was send to me from UIP, I was a bit sceptical as that is what I thought the movie will be (gory horror). I thought it was going to be a zombie war movie. I also saw that it was produced by JJ Abrams and I am a fan of his work. I had also learnt after some google work that the initial story for the film was conceived by JJ Abrams.


We were invited by UIP for the pre-screening for this movie and I went to see it with no real expectation except for awesome cinematography which I knew I will definitely get. I was so surprised that I enjoyed it so much. I was on the edge of my seat most of the movie in anticipation as to what was going to happen. The filming was so intense that whatever I saw, I felt. Also makes you think if it is actually possible that something like that could have actually happened.


I would strongly recommend that you go and watch this movie preferably at IMAX, if you cannot watch it in a normal cinema but definitely go and watch it!

Baby Driver

Genre:  Action / Crime / Thriller / Music

Director: Edgar Wright

Cast:      Ansel Elgort

Kevin Spacey

Lily James

Eiza Gonzalez

Jon Hamm

Jamie Foxx

Jon Bernthal


Music By: Steven Price


The first time I had ever seen Ansel Elgort acting was in a movie called “The Fault in Our Stars”, which I watched because my niece had insisted that it was an AMAZING movie (her words not mine). Well thats what you get for listening to a teenager.


When I heard that Ansel Elgort was the lead in this movie I hadn’t expected much. Then I watched the movie, boy was I wrong. Exciting, thrilling and edge of your seat action was what I experienced when I watched Baby Driver.


It is a perfect date night movie because as much as it is action packed it has the romance that will definitely make any girl swoon. Young love, we were all there at some point in our lives. This movie makes you feel that passion and romance and adrenaline all at once, with the right music to accentuate all the feels.


The soundtrack in the movie is amazing! It has music from not only the different ages but also all types of genres. The music creates context as well as the overall theme of the movie.


There aren’t many movies that are released that I feel are exhilarating but Baby Driver is definitely one of them.  Don’t waste anymore time reading but just go and book already!

Beauty & The Beast

Genre: Fantasy / Romance

Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Audra McDonald, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson

Director: Bill Condon

Screenplay: Stephen Chbosky and Evan Spiliotopouos

Produced By: David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman

Music: Alan Menken

Get ready to be transported to a fantasy world.

I was really excited for this movie as I grew up in a time where animated Disney movies were everything! The Little Mermaid being my all time favourite and Beauty and The Beast a close second.

As a person who loves books and who always was caught with a book in hand (I had burned food on numerous occasions because of reading and forgetting that something was on the stove), I always felt a kinship with Belle’s character. Her love for books and adventure made me feel as if I was not the only odd one out.

This movie portrays each character perfectly, from Chip the teacup to Lumiere the candelabra. LeFou (Josh Gad) was hilarious, you automatically love his character. He is loyal to Gaston (Luke Evans) but also is very conscience of what is right and wrong.

I love that Disney kept everything as close to the animated version as possible. The costumes and intricate details of the castle and characters are amazing.

If you have kids, this should be your go to family movie to watch! The star studded cast make you believe that for that moment you are with them. You feel their happiness, sadness, pain and love.

Get caught up in the moment, be a kid again!

A tale as old as time…

Keeping Up With The Kandasamy’s

Genre: Comedy

Cast: Jailoshini Naidoo, Maeshni Naicker, Madhushan Singh, Mishqah Parthiephal, Mariam Bassa, Rajesh Gopie, Koobeshen Naidoo

Director: Jayan Moodley

Screenplay: Jayan Moodley, Rory Booth

Produced By: Helena Spring, Junaid Ahmed

Music: Chris Letcher


When I hear South African movies I’m always skeptical and not 100% keen on going to watch the movie. Today I was pleasantly surprised. This movie was hilarious and so enjoyable to watch.

There aren’t many movies that I watch that I can relate to, but this is one of them that I can. The community, the kinship and food (I still hate pro-vita in my lunchbox), all of these are just aspects of what all us South Africans are made of.

The acting was on par with any of the Hollywood comedy movies. For me the granny (Mariam Bassa) stole the show. As a South African Indian we all know at least one old lady like her (you know the type, always complaining to someone on the phone about their daughter-in-law and being overly dramatic.) She is hilarious and her comedic timing is the best.

The movie was funny from start to finish obviously with some drama in between. This is definitely a must see for anyone who wants a laugh. Your dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin and endorphin levels will be high and mighty after this!
