Filatov & Karas – Time Won’t Wait

New single “Time Won’t Wait” has been given a full release through Ultra Music, and is a stunning listen.

With their expansive style of progressive house once again shining through here, “Time Won’t Wait” features rich vocals and singalong lyrics, guitar hooks and an almost 80’s style developing synth melody – adding in a few well-placed pop vibes.

Ghost In The Shell

Ghost In The Shell feels like a watered down, sterilised version of the original that has unsuccessfully attempted to become more accessible by adding in certain plot points. Though I will be the first to admit that I had to Wikipedia the 1995 original after watching to cement the narrative in my head, I appreciated the way that the film didn’t hold my hand, and this version feels very much like it does that from beginning to end. Ultimately it just isn’t a particularly good film, so don’t let the flashy, at times interesting visuals fool you in to thinking that you are watching something better than you actually are.

beauty and the beast

Beauty And The Beast

Beauty And The Beast very much falls in to my Cinderella pile. As comparison piece to the original animation, this live action adaptation loses each battle it tries to forge. The ability to build a world using animation makes for a much more expansive, escapist aesthetic, and this kind of world building is very much missing in the remake. Belle’s (Emma Waston) ‘small provincial town’ looks exactly like what it is, a sound stage in a warehouse somewhere in Hollywood. Things get slightly better when we get to the castle scenes, but this time the problem lies not in the look of the sets but in the look of the characters. Lumiere (Ewan McGregor), Cogsworth (Ian McKellen), Mrs Potts (Emma Thompson) and co. don’t possess half the charm of their 90s predecessors, with the focus on making the ornaments look as ‘authentic’ as possible limiting their opportunity for real expression.

power rangers

Power Rangers

This 2017 re-imagining of our beloved colourful troop tells the story of five teenagers in Angel Grove, all of whom, one way or another, you could label to be misfits and outsiders. The film absolutely has The Breakfast Club to thank for the dynamic of the group, the majority of them even meeting for the first time in weekend detention, and it’s the human, coming-of-age element of the story from a star quarterback fallen from grace to a tech geek coping with autism to a Latina struggling with her sexuality that adds a really very endearing heart to the proceedings. Massive, massive props to the film for portraying the first instances of both autistic and LGBT superheroes in a blockbuster. No matter how pedestrian or forgettable the overall package is, that is one hell of a step forward.Have you noticed how we are halfway through the review and I haven’t even mentioned the plot yet? That’s because it really, really doesn’t matter.
