Review: GIRLS TRIP = Girls just wanna have fun ;)

This is everything a perfect comedy should be, the jokes are funny, the actors are in the 2017 terminology killing it and you are entertained from start to finish. If you are a comedy fan whether male or female this movie hits the spot for us all. The trailer itself makes you say I want […]

Review: Power Rangers

Review: Power Rangers

Those teenagers with attitude hit the big screen with a darker reimagining of the original 90’s Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, and it doesn’t fail to disappoint. It’s morphin’ time!

Review: Beauty and the Beast

Review: Beauty and the Beast

It’s a tale that’s old as time but Disney’s retelling of the classic fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast is nothing if not modern, fresh and above all enchanting.

It was bittersweet and strange watching a film that I held so dear as a child be remodelled and reworked into this live action version, however director Bill Condon did not disappoint me. Having directed the final two Twilight films, Condon was used to living up to high expectations of die-hard fans. Armed with three […]
