Colossal

Colossal: A head-scratching high-concept film

Every now and then there is a film that graces our screens that is just unquestionably “high concept”. You know the films I’m talking about: those odd projects that come out of left-field with a central premise that presents an oddly specific set of elements and often requires a certain suspension of disbelief to really get into. These movies often sacrifice character development and interaction to service the central premise of the film. Colossal is largely one of those films. If you thought Jurassic Park had too many dinosaurs and Godzilla wasn’t realistic enough then stop reading here. For everyone else: let’s talk!

Ready Player One

Ready. Player. Wonderwall.

Ready Player One arrives at our shores just in time for Easter, and fittingly it is the quintessential turducken of an Easter feast. It is an Easter egg stuffed with Easter eggs, wrapped in Easter eggs and – to take this metaphor possibly too far, but screw it – covered in rich melted Easter egg sauce.

Hanneke Schutte op die stel van Meerkat Maantuig

Die vloek van vrees: ‘n Gesprek met Hanneke Schutte

Hanneke Schutte was ‘n kind vol vrese. “Ek was só bang gewees toe ek klein was. Ek was regtig bang vir álles. My pa-hulle het nie geweet wat om met my te doen nie. Ek kon nie eens in die gang afloop in die aand nie, ek moes hardloop — al was die ligte aan.”

Ek weet nie of oorweldigende vrees jou ‘n beter kandidaat maak om ‘n storie oor vrees te vertel nie, maar Hanneke het besluit om te probeer. Sy is die skrywer-regisseur van Meerkat Maantuig, ‘n nuwe fliek wat grootliks gaan oor vrees.
