My Top 10 Movies of 2017

It’s that time of year again! People are making merry and drinking their own body-weight in alcohol and critics are making their annual arbitrary Top 10 of the year list, a practice I’m now going to add to. A few housekeeping notes before we start, only movies I have seen (obviously) make the list, I…

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review

For the past three years, I’ve been to the cinema at midnight, on a cold December evening to see the new Star Wars film. I go with the same friend every year, it’s become a little pre-Christmas tradition for us, we spend months pawing over every trailer and screenshot until the fateful day where we…

Justice League Review

I think I’ve put this off long enough. So, to recap, this follows the 2016 movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a film I thought was okay but incredibly flawed and had the most divisive reception for any film I can remember and Wonder Woman, a movie I thoroughly enjoyed. Will Justice League be…

Raging Bull Review

A few months ago, I mentioned I was going to start review classic movies as well as current cinematic releases, well it’s taken me a while but here we go. Martin Scorsese is a film-maker of great renown, in fact that may be an understatement, he’s practically Hollywood royalty. With a string of classics as…

Thor: Ragnarok Review

I must admit to a bit of superhero fatigue at this point, there never seems to be a point where there isn’t a new superhero movie out. This is after all the third Marvel Cinematic Universe offering this year alone, combined with DC’s efforts this year, it adds up to a whole lot of superheroes.…

It Review

I’m not all that big on horror movies to be perfectly honest, movies don’t scare me, they never really have, sure they can startle and make me jump a few times, but most movies don’t have the right elements of horror to actually scare me, I am however, a big fan of the works of…

Black Sabbath: The End of The End Review

I was at Black Sabbath’s last ever gig. Beating out terrible weather and even worse public transport, which lead to us needed to get a black cab from Birmingham to Walsall, at great expense, but I digress. It was a hell of a way to spend two hours though I tell you that. Singing along…

Kingsman: The Golden Circle Review

So the first Kingsman movie was a very nice surprise, a fast and fun take on the spy genre with slick action scenes and likeable characters, especially it’s everyman hero, Eggsy. Well, Eggsy and the gang return in this sequel, does it hold up? Well, let’s see… Story A year after the conclusion of the…

The Hitman’s Bodyguard Review

After Deadpool last year, Ryan Reynolds is a bankable comedy actor, not as if he wasn’t before but a string of bad choices prior to this it was difficult to bank on a Reynolds performance. This movie sees him team up with movie veteran Samuel L Jackson, in an action comedy romp across most of…

Atomic Blonde Review

I was feeling quite optimistic going to see this movie, after my run of stellar movies in the last few weeks, and what with this being another war (albeit a different ‘colder’ one) given it’s stylish looks in trailers, there was plenty to be optimistic about, unfortunately this is the first film in a while…
