My st 8 Afrikaans-juffrou het gesê ek moet eerder nie tale gaan swot nie. Die uitdrukking op haar gesig het beteken ek sal dit nie maak nie.

My st 8 Engels-juffrou het gesê ek moet asseblief ’n getekende kopie van my eerste boek vir haar bring. Ek dink ek glo eerder my Engels-juffrou.

Blinded by the light captures the power of music, but not the power of film

Reney Warrington Film 2019-08-13

"It is a dazzling concept, using Bruce Springsteen’s working-class Americana lyrics and music as a backdrop to life in Britain in 1987 for a working-class Pakistani family."

The best of enemies: black and white race relations portrayed in shades of grey

Reney Warrington Film 2019-08-02

"The best of enemies is not a brilliant film, it is not a ground-breaking film, but it does not deserve to be tanked, either."

The Lion King – louwarm

Reney Warrington Film 2019-07-22

"Die 2019-weergawe het nie die passie van die 1994-weergawe nie. Ek het heeltyd gewag vir die energie om toe te neem, vir die weerbarstigheid van byvoorbeeld die aasvoëls of die hiënas om deur die skerm te breek. Die oomblik het nie aangebreek nie."

Rolling thunder revue, a Bob Dylan story by Martin Scorsese on Netflix

Reney Warrington TV 2019-07-09

"Part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream, Rolling thunder is a one-of-a-kind experience from master filmmaker Martin Scorsese."

Booksmart: a film review

Reney Warrington Film 2019-07-02

"Booksmart, a film about high school – the current colosseum where the innocent and not so innocent are fed to lions – is simply not cruel enough to feel authentic, not funny enough to make you cringe at what you are laughing at, and not insane enough to elevate it to mockumentary/spoof status."

Game of Thrones se finale seisoen – ewe veel pyn en plesier

Reney Warrington TV 2019-05-24

"’n Klomp moerige bewonderaars het ’n petisie opgestel waarin hulle daarop aandring dat seisoen 8 oorgeskryf en -verfilm moet word. Natuurlik kan enige bewonderaar op sosiale media en om die braaivuur kla as hulle nie van iets hou nie. Maar om aan te voer dat jou idees en storielyne beter is, en dat ander mense se harde werk in die proses geskrap moet word?"

Smit Motors: ’n onderhoud met Réney Warrington

Naomi Meyer, Reney Warrington Skrywersonderhoude 2019-05-21

"Ek beplan die beste aan ’n nuwe boek op ’n lang, oop grondpad met goeie musiek oor die radio."

Skemerson: ’n resensie

Reney Warrington Film 2019-05-13

"Skemerson moes ’n kortfilm gewees het."

Die Spreeus – as dit maar net scary was

Reney Warrington TV 2019-05-06

"Die Spreeus se waarde lê in die lieflike karakters en ontginning van Suid-Afrika se ryk kultuur van spookstories." 

Capernaum – a tale of darkness and of light

Reney Warrington Film 2019-04-16

"Capernaum is a stirring take on poverty, child abuse and overpopulation. It won’t traumatise you or leave you despondent, though."

Dumbo: good enough

Reney Warrington Film 2019-03-29

"Dumbo, along with Mary Poppins Returns, might not have been cinematic milestones in the careers of the cast and crew, but it is the kind of movie that is sorely needed: films that enhance childlike wonder in children ..."

Destroyer – a hard “no”

Reney Warrington Resensies 2019-03-15

"Nicole Kidman goes full tilt into the character of Erin Bell, and this performance, which is supposed to carry the film, ends up ruining it. On top of that, the film suffers from some rather serious plot holes, dubious styling and one-dimensional characters."

Die stropers – onder draai die duiwel rond

Reney Warrington Film 2019-03-14

"Die stropers is ’n totale aanslag op dogma, indoktrinasie, patriargie, isolering teen die buitewêreld, fundamentele religie en ’n rigiede stelsel wat van almal slagoffers maak, ’n stelsel wat in stand gehou word deur niemand anders as ons self nie."

Green book – unsettling, yet heart-warming

Reney Warrington Film 2019-02-04

"The controversy surrounding this film should not dissuade people from watching it. (Google if you must.) It is a nuanced, tender tale about an unlikely friendship that overcame loneliness, bigotry and class differences. Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali’s performances appear effortless."

The favourite – a reward for the committed cinephile

Reney Warrington Film 2019-01-31

"The film is visually sumptuous, thanks to incredibly detailed costumes, lavish locations, great camerawork, dimly lit scenes and perfectly precise editing."
