Inception Review

There are few directors in the world who can sell a movie simply by putting their name to it. Only a select few manage to achieve that level of recognition that their name can sell any picture just as well as any actor attached to it. Quentin Tarantino is one, as is Stephen Spielberg (although,…

My Top 10 Animated Films

It occurred to me the other day that, for all my posturing, and championing of animation, I hadn’t really revealed my litmus test of what I consider to be ‘great’ animation; I also noticed how popular my listed entries seem to be on my sight, so I thought that while I was in the midst of…

Babyteeth Review

I wondered how long it would take for the scales to fall from my eyes, and my excitement over the re-opening of cinemas to be shattered, I hoped it would be a while yet, at least longer than it has been, but with this film, my patience finally ran out. Everything about this film seemed…

An American Pickle Review

What’s better than one Seth Rogen? Well, I can name many things like chocolate, coffee and Adam Driver, but hypothetically, if one were to be a Seth Rogen super-fan, what’s better than one Seth Rogan? Why, TWO Seth Rogens of course!

David Brent: Life on the Road Review

Ricky Gervais is what you might call an acquired taste. He has been known to let his mouth get him into trouble, but however outspoken and opinionated he might be, there’s one thing that cannot be taken away from him, and that’s his writing talent. His first big exposure was The Office, a somewhat ground-breaking…

Unhinged Review

I’ve been away from the cinema for so long, I’d forgotten what popcorn smelt like… Yes, for the first time since March 11th, I got to see a new film at the cinema. After a few long months of uncertainty, I got to sit in the dark, with a large drink in the armrest, and…

Trainspotting Review

I’ve been intending to review this film for some time now; on the recommendation of one of my regular readers (he knows who he is). It’s a film I’d never seen before but knew by reputation, by which I mean that I shouldn’t expect a jolly skip through the tulips, I knew the film was…

Space Jam Review

The Looney Tunes are practically animation royalty nowadays, they’ve been around since the 1930’s and generations of children have come to love Bugs, Daffy, and all the other wacky characters that make up the Looney Tunes roster. Their longevity is testament to their popularity, as there are still TV series running now that carry on…
