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! 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…

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…

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…

Snowpiercer Review

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been on somewhat of a Korean cinema binge, off the back of one particular stunning film experience from one particular director from the East-Asian country, a certain Bong Joon-ho. While Bong Joon-ho has been a popular director in his home country for some time, it was only really with Parasite that…

Evolution of Animation: Part Two – Rise of Disney

So, when we left off last time, the studios had risen up to take charge of animation, and one man, in particular, had just had his most popular character ripped away from him by his studio, and that man would go on, to say the least, to achieve much success regardless. Walter Elias Disney was…
