Silver Screen Queens 214: Cars 3

21 June 2017 • 39 minutes, 51 seconds

Pixar’s Cars franchise has never been a hit with critics, but kids have long enjoyed the antics of Lightning McQueen, and made him one of the biggest-selling toys on the market. When we began seeing trailers a few months back promising the kid equivalent of a “gritty reboot” to the franchise, we were intrigued. Lightning McQueen is now a veteran race car, and he’s finding it hard to keep up with the new kids on the block. When an accident puts him out of action, he must find his way back to the podium.

20 June 2017 • 29 minutes, 22 seconds

Money comes and money goes. This ebb and flow is ever more noticeable as an indie, coming with a unique set of concerns that can affect an entire household.

Silver Screen Queens 213: The Mummy (2017)

14 June 2017 • 45 minutes, 22 seconds

Universal is attempting to make a ‘Dark Universe’ happen, and they are starting with this remake of The Mummy. Most people our age have fond memories of the 1999 movie of the same name, so how does this high-octane Tom Cruise-led remake stack up?

Silver Screen Queens 212: Wonder Woman

7 June 2017 • 54 minutes, 39 seconds

We’ve waited a long time for this: Wonder Woman has her own live action film. The DC universe did not fill us with confidence in the lead-up to Wonder Woman’s release, but the reviews were good, so we crossed our fingers and showed up on opening night.

Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) is back, and having never been, Belle wants to know what it is that draws Curtis and Jelly back every year. Together, they look at what they like about WWDC, what it’s like in comparison to the independent conferences put on each year, and what they would do to improve it in the future.

Silver Screen Queens 211: Life

31 May 2017 • 47 minutes, 12 seconds

Silver Screen Queens 210: John Wick: Chapter 2

24 May 2017 • 32 minutes, 49 seconds

John Wick was a sleeper hit in 2014, so the team has scrambled to put together a sequel that’s longer, louder and freer of dog violence. If you liked the first one, this offers more of the same, without trying to get clever about it. The fight choreography and stunt work is well worth the price of admission.

Independence 1: Independence

23 May 2017 • 39 minutes, 1 second

What is independence, and why is it something that Belle, Curtis and Jelly aspire to achieve? In their inaugural episode, they discuss what they consider being independent, what the downsides are, and where they are in their journey towards it.

17 May 2017 • 49 minutes, 11 seconds

Ridley Scott returns to the Alien universe, with a sequel to the 2012 prequel PROMETHEUS. It features good performances from Michael Fassbender and Katherine Waterston, but it doesn’t add anything to the legacy of the early films.
