Logan: Review

Logan: Review

Logan is the Wolverine film that audiences have craved for so long. It’s packed with bloody violence, adult language and emotional revelations. Hugh Jackman’s final appearance as the clawed hero challenges everything that we expect of super hero movies.

The film is based around the Old Man Logan storyline from the X-Men comics, taking place in a near future where mutants are dying off. The ones that remain include Logan, and a frail, mentally ill Professor Xavier. Patrick Stewart’s return to the role is extremely satisfying, as he gets to explore a different side […]

Fifty Shades Darker – Review

Fifty Shades Darker – Review

The well-anticipated Mr dark and mysterious recently topped the box office film charts, but it wasn’t quite the troubled billionaire protagonist that people were expecting. The Lego Batman Movie raked in £7.9 million on its opening weekend, meaning capes and comedy beat Christian Grey and his raunchy sequel to the top spot. Fifty Shades Darker earned a slightly lower £7.56 million, nearly half the amount of its Valentine’s Day predecessor, ranking it in second place.

Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson reprised their roles as billionaire bad boy, Christian Grey and inexperienced ‘misfit,’ Anastasia Steele, but continued to struggle with on screen chemistry in this disappointing sequel. The movie begins with the “not a hearts and flowers kind of” Christian, giving Anastasia… flowers, in a bid to swoon her back to […]

Review: Moonlight – A powerful piece of cinema that will stay long in the memory

Moonlight is not a film about Hollywood made for Hollywood, it is not a film made for the academy awards, it is not a film made with accolades in mind; it is so much more than that.

As the second feature film from ‘Medicine For Melancholy’ director Barry Jenkins, Moonlight is a coming-of-age drama about a young man’s continuing struggle to understand just who he is. Adapted from Tarell Alvin McCraney’s unproduced play ‘In Moonlight, Black Boys Look Blue’, Moonlight dares to delve into a world that is so unfamiliar to the […]
