Timely portrayal
7 September 2017
What an extremely relevant time to release this movie. Talks of Serena playing a male tennis player have been buzzing around for months. Emma Stone puts on a great portrayal of Billie Jean King, but does get overshadowed by Steve Carell's performance portraying the misogynist Bobby Riggs. He makes you cringe with most of his antics and you get a reminder of his years as the boss in "The Office". The story is one that this new generation could learn from.

Prisoners (2013)
9/10
Hugh Jackman's finest role?
6 September 2013
Hugh Jackman takes you on a trip through the intense emotions a family is put through during its darkest hour. This may be his best role to date. From the trailers you know that his character will be out for blood as their daughter was kidnapped, but throughout the film you feel his pain, anger and moral struggles as he deals with this situation. The director does an excellent job of keeping you invested in the film emotionally even through some intensely violent scenes. Its dreary setting provides no comfort, but goes hand and hand with the narrative. This film may not be for those faint of heart but should be a must see for most viewers.
