First Man Review

Ryan Gosling and Damian Chazelle are proving themselves to be somewhat of a Hollywood dream team. After La La Land, their next collaboration was going to be one to watch, and they set their sights big, taking on the story of Neil Armstrong and the very first moon landing. Although to call it a film…

King of Thieves Review

There’s something amazing about Michael Caine. Firstly, he’s 85 years old and still playing leading roles in movies, which in today’s looks-based industry (well, actually the business has always been big on looks, but humour me here) is unprecedented. He also has a strange effect on me, as whenever I see him on a poster,…

BlacKkKlansman Review

Undoubtedly one of this years most important film releases, BlacKkKlansman is the latest film from acclaimed director Spike Lee, known for shining a cinematic light on the plight of being an African-American in a discriminatory world (Do The Right Thing and Malcolm X being the best examples in his filmography). The film generated positive buzz…

Top 10 Worst Superhero Movies

Sir Isaac Newton once said that: “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.” But what did he know? He probably had concussion from sitting under apple trees, the silly sod. Basically what I’m trying to say is, last week I did the Top 10 Best Superhero Movies, so naturally I’m following it up with…

The Happytime Murders Review

Good God, this film sucks. Oh, sorry, I should probably give more build-up to that. The Happytime Murders is the latest film from Brian Henson, the Son of Muppets creator, Jim Henson, and poor Jim is probably not only rolling in his grave, but doing a choreographed dance routine. Story In a world where puppets…

The Equalizer 2 Review

The first Equalizer was a bit of a pleasant surprise. A stylish, well-presented pleasant surprise at that. Reuniting Denzel Washington with Training Day director, Antoine Fuqua it was a stylish take on the well-used vigilante revenge thriller, it was a good example of using a generic premise and giving it a twist to make it…

The Festival Review

I like The Inbetweeners, it had an underlying smart satire of teenage life, and had cringe-y, gross-out humour that felt like it was earned. It helped the tone along and lent itself well to the jokes. I’m not, however, a fan of gross-out humour where it feels forced. I’m not going to laugh because someone…

My Top 10 Best Superhero Films

So, I don’t know whether you’ve noticed, but superhero films are quite popular at the moment. Shocking, I know, but they’re all over the place right now. With Marvel and DC both reliably churning out movies of varying quality, and given my longer editorial pieces like this tend to get more views, I thought it…

Ant-Man and the Wasp Review

It was always going to be difficult to follow the colossal success of Infinity War, it was probably a wise decision to make somewhat of a ‘palate cleanser’ between Infinity War and next year’s Captain Marvel. The success of 2015’s Ant-Man was somewhat of a surprise to the layman, a film based around a somewhat…

Mission: Impossible – Fallout Review

I must admit that I’m a new passenger on the Mission: Impossible party bus. You see, I’ve never had a great love of Tom Cruise and I’m very rarely in the mood for an action film, and I’d somewhat naively categorised them as simple, brainless action films, by the time I’d watched Ghost Protocol, I…
