Sonic the Hedgehog Review

Normally, I would eschew reviewing films I deem as ‘easy targets’. I can tell from watching the trailer, for example, of Peter Rabbit, that anything I say as a critic is going to mean nothing, yes it’s probably going to be awful, but it’s more of a kid-distracter than a film, this isn’t the case…

Parasite Review

Every so often a film comes along that reminds you why you love cinema. Three Billboards a few years ago was one such film, as was Dunkirk, and now it has a stablemate: Parasite. The current importance of this film cannot be overstated. The first foreign language film to ever win Best Picture at the…

Dolittle Review

Of all the franchises in the world, I can’t think of many I would want to see a reboot of. But even on that short list, I don’t think the Doctor Dolittle mythology is one worth revisiting. Even with the extra drawing power of post-Iron Man Robert Downey Jr, this film has found it hard…

I say ‘once-ridiculed’ as for my money the franchise has been on a bit of a…

Honey Boy Review

There are times when a film comes along, and I’m utterly baffled by it. I can be baffled by the fact that someone greenlit such a film, or baffled it took so long to do that, because the result was so great. Then there are films that generally leave me in a haze of uncertainty,…

The Two Popes Review

Religion has always been, and will always be, a divisive topic. As far as religion goes, there is no bigger figurehead than the Pope, the head of the Catholic Church, whose full title is bafflingly long (seriously Google it) and is supposedly the representation of God on Earth. Whatever your views on religion, and the…
