Memories of Murder Review

There’s been an ignition of interest this year surrounding the films of Bong Joon-ho, this appetite has been cooled-down somewhat by the world events unfolding all around us in recent months, but it seemed like a turning point when he took this years Oscars by storm. I had floated the idea around that time that…

The Shining Review

When I put out a vote on my social media to pick my next review, I deliberately picked horror films, with it being October now, and I must admit, this film was a last-minute addition. I wanted four horror films, and more to the point, four horror films in my collection, with an already established…

Tenet Review

Last week, in my Inception review, I extolled the virtues of Christopher Nolan, and how he makes complex, yet accessible blockbusters that both challenge and enthral an audience; in many ways, that review was the primer for this one, helping to give context to this new work by the acclaimed director. Tenet is in a tough spot, it’s…

Inception Review

There are few directors in the world who can sell a movie simply by putting their name to it. Only a select few manage to achieve that level of recognition that their name can sell any picture just as well as any actor attached to it. Quentin Tarantino is one, as is Stephen Spielberg (although,…

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…

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…

Four Corners

Consciousness was returning, they opened their eyes to blinding lights and thumping heads. Questions were all swimming in their minds, barely formed but still there, as their vision adjusted to the brightly lit room, and the dull thump in their heads subdued.   There were four in total. All were gagged, so they couldn’t cry…

Blade Runner 2049 Review

When it comes to long-awaited sequels, it’s fair to say that the weight of expectation is fairly heavy, especially when you’re following up a beloved cult classic that had no apparent need for a sequel. Still, it has been shown before, that in the right hands, a long-gestating successor can be just as successful as…

The Conversation Review

It is impressive enough to be responsible for one film considered the greatest of all time. It’s even more impressive to produce two such movies, any more classic films will see you moved into the conversation (no pun intended) for the greatest filmmaker of all-time. This is true of the man responsible for the director…

The Boondock Saints Review

Billy Connolly may be the greatest comedian of all-time, but in the movie stakes, he is second only to Sean Bean in terms of on-screen deaths. This is the man who claims to be ‘the only person to die in a Muppet movie’ so I was hoping the Big Yin could make it at least…
