Zack Snyder’s Justice League Review

For my review of the theatrical cut, click here. Right, so this review is going to be contentious no matter what I say. In many ways, I’ve been dreading the release of the so-called ‘Snyder Cut’, I knew that I’d be catching flak from one side or another no matter what I wrote, and, to…

WandaVision Review

Who’s been messing up everything? I’ll be honest, that tune has been stuck in my head for the past month, and now it’s stuck in yours again. You’re welcome. While the past year has been disastrous for all of us, it’s done particular damage to film schedules. Even the biggest studios have seen their schedules…

Downfall Review

I have reviewed many war films before, but none of them has been like this one. The common phrase ‘history is written by the victors’ is often true of films; there have been few movies set from the perspective of the German’s in the years since the Second World War, with good reason, but there…

Downfall Review (In Deutsch)

Ich habe schon viele Kriegsfilme rezensiert, aber keiner von ihnen war so wie dieser. Der übliche Ausdruck “Geschichte wird von den Siegern geschrieben” trifft häufig auf Filme zu. In den Jahren seit dem Zweiten Weltkrieg wurden aus gutem Grund nur wenige Filme aus der Sicht der Deutschen gedreht, aber es gibt immer noch wichtige Geschichten,…

Coming To America Review

Some Hollywood stars lead a long and fruitful career spanning many decades. Some operate in the background and only get their dues as supporting players. Others burn brightly for a period and then eventually fizzle out, usually after a run of poorly-received or unprofitable projects. Eddie Murphy is someone who arguably belongs in this latter…

The Prom Review

Poor Meryl Streep. Is your career struggling so much that you were forced to sign onto this putrid cacophony of nonsense? Forgive me, I don’t typically give the game away quite so early, do I? But I cannot accurately describe this feeling of hatred that currently squats in my stomach like all of the bile…

War Horse Review

There are few duos in Hollywood as successful and revered as Steven Spielberg and John Williams. The director and the maestro have had a lucrative partnership that spans five decades and a truckload of awards. To date, they have worked on twenty-eight films together (starting with 1974’s The Sugarland Express), and their partnership shows no signs…

Daredevil (2015-2018 TV Series) Review

As a few of you may know, I often struggle to keep up to date with TV shows. I never got past the fourth season of Game of Thrones, I’m not entirely sure if I ever finished Breaking Bad, and I’ve never seen so much as one episode of The Sopranos. Even shows that interest…
