Recently I went and saw the new Spider-Man movie and my wife took me to a preview screening of the new Charlize Theron actioner Atomic Blonde. I’ve also watched Baby Driver, a film that has been carrying a lot of buzz. Alas I may not share the same enthusiasm for it that many do but there are things I appreciated about it. Maybe I’ll get to a review in time. I also hope to write about the return of the Brisbane International Film Festival which trust me is a cause for celebration. In the meantime I’ve been lucky to have Buzz Magazine publish my reviews for Spider-Man: Homecoming and Atomic Blonde. Links can be found here http://buzzmagazine.com.au/spiderman-homecoming/ and here http://buzzmagazine.com.au/atomic-blonde/ and I hope you enjoy.


Based out of Victoria, Buzz Magazine was one the longest running street press magazines in Australia being published in print from 1993 to 2010. Some fine writers have worked for Buzz over the years and gone onto successful careers in media since and there is simply no way to measure the contribution the mag made to local music over its print run. With such words and minimal advertising on the website the impression could be taken that Buzz is now semi-retired. Yet the site is quite prolific with new write-ups on a daily basis, the ongoing interest of fans old and new and contributions from some very talented people indeed.


I count myself very fortunate to have been able to submit 5 reviews there for the blockbusters Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Wonder Woman and now Spider-Man: Homecoming and Atomic Blonde.

Hope you’re all well.

  1. Good review, Lloyd. I like the look of Atomic Blonde a lot, and imagine I am going to like it too.
    I don’t mind style over substance, as long as I like the style. Besides, Theron looks HOT!
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Appreciate you clicking on the link to read them. Does your grandnephew know any of the crew who worked on Atomic Blonde? Pretty cool fight scenes much like the stuff he did.

      1. I don’t know if he does or not. Bet he does though. I imagine the stunt community is pretty close. The trailers I have seen for BLONDE look really exciting.

  2. Great job with the reviews and getting them published! Funny, when I first saw the poster for Atomic Blond a while back I kept thinking if it was a documentary or biopic on the band Blondie. Anyways, it’s always good to see Theron in action!

  3. From your review Atomic Blonde sounds a little more James Bond than Blonde John Wick, Charlize is the hero the cinema could do with right now!

    1. No it’s blonde John Wick except Reeves as Wick with his backstory is a more a likeable character and funnier movie. But the cast is so good in particular Theron I recommend it.
