Hercules Review

Well, this will teach me to open my big mouth. After the release of my Top 10 Animated Films list (available here) last week, a few conversations emerged on my personal Facebook page, all of which were quite nice and opened up positive discourse (something I’m always aiming for) but a few films came up in…

Flash Gordon Review

Amazingly, this is the movie George Lucas wanted to make before he made Star Wars, I like to think that an alternate universe exists where George Lucas made Flash Gordon, and the production crew behind this film made Star Wars. What an image it might give you to imagine Star Wars made with this films budget and VFX, I’m specifically thinking 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! Business is picking back at the cinemas, as among the batch of re-releases to…

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…

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…

Dolemite is My Name Review

I’d be the first person to admit that I neglect Netflix releases on this site. You’d think now would be the opportune time to catch up on its movements with most traditional releasing methods being barren, but I’ve been so busy catching up on old stuff I’ve had to watch on DVD or Blu-Ray that…

South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut Review

South Park was a natural escalation in the increasing trend of animation aimed towards adults. What the Simpsons had started in 1989 had been slowly building throughout the 90’s series such as Beavis and Butthead took the prerogative, but it wasn’t until South Park that the escalation reached its peak. Challenging taboo will always have…

Time Bandits Review

I’d never fully understood the meaning of the phrase: ‘having one’s cake and eating it’ because a cake only really has one function unless you’re planning an elaborate food fight, but after watching Time Bandits it started to become a little clearer to me. It has a perfectly workable premise, but overreaches itself far too often, and…

Forrest Gump Review

Like many people, my ‘favourite film’ has changed more than a few times over the years, as tastes evolve and horizons are broadened, I published my Top 25 Films of All-Time in my first book only last year, and yet I feel it may already be out-dated, things change so often, that being asked to…
