The Worst Films of the Year

It’s all very well and good being positive and all that, but we all know that the world is not a positive place, it’s a dull, unforgiving place, and Hollywood is no different, in fact it’s probably worse, if Hollywood were a person, it would have the worst mood swings in human history. On one…

My Top 10 Films of 2018

So, here we are again… Another year has passed, which means it’s time for critics the world over to compile their Top 10 Films of the year list in an effort to feel more important and, more importantly, to boost site traffic. As the old saying goes, if you can’t beat them, join them. It’s…

Aquaman Review

Commenting on the DCEU on the internet is like poking a hungry lion with a stick, as there’s a good chance you might be eaten whole by a terrifying beast. There are several enthusiastic people on either side of the fence, people who defend the DCEU, and Zack Snyder in particular, and declare his work…

Ralph Breaks the Internet Review

Disney has an alarmingly high batting average when it comes to films. This year alone has seen the release of Coco and The Incredibles 2 (with Pixar) and now comes this, a sequel to the beloved 2012 release Wreck-It Ralph. Disney have only really recently embraced theatrically releasing sequels. Showing a lot of restraint for…

Creed II Review

The first Creed was somewhat of a pleasant surprise, not only a spin-off, but a spin-off of a series that outstayed its welcome almost 30 years ago, it had no right to be as good as it was, but there it was. Given the films stellar cast and stellar director, there are few reasons to…

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald Review

Setting out to make a spin-off series to something as beloved as the Harry Potter franchise is. usually, either real brave, or really stupid. While the first film was a good first step into this fresh chapter of the Wizarding World, introducing us to a likeable new lead character, as well as interesting support characters…

The Grinch Review

I do love Christmas, and by extension, Christmas films. Miracle on 34th Street and Elf are both favourites, and another personal favourite is the 2000 live-action adaptation of The Grinch, starring Jim Carrey. I understand it’s a very divisive film, and can see why, but like anything nostalgic from my childhood, I hold it up…

A Star Is Born Review

I’ve needed quite a bit of time to process what I think about this film. On one hand I wanted to avoid looking like a massive hypocrite, after everything I’ve said about remakes/reboots over the years, so this review may seem incongruous. Secondly, I’ve done my best to avoid other critiques of this film more…

Venom Review

In the wider world of superhero movies, it’s safe to say that not much was expected of Venom. Coming after years of toiling in development hell, many thought it would never see the light of day. This film wasn’t even on my radar this year, which is odd for a comic-book film and this was…

Bohemian Rhapsody Review

Many moons ago, I recall hearing of a Freddie Mercury biopic entering production. It was set to start Sacha Baron Cohen, and this news was very exciting to me, I am, like many people, a huge Queen fan, I own all of their studio output and have seen the remaining members perform twice with new…
