Review: Murder Mystery

Review: Murder Mystery

Oh, great, another Adam Sandler comedy. Sandler has been about as on the ball as a dead seal in these past few years of filmmaking. Jack and Jill seemed to be the catalyst of what has become a landslide of awful, cheap and downright dispiriting films that have taken their toll on the Sandman. His […]

Review: The House That Jack Built

Review: The House That Jack Built

My disinterest in Lars von Trier and his Dogme 95 attitude has kept me well away from his work for some time now. But with his disregard for his own set of rules, von Trier is insistent on shocking and disgusting his audiences. His latest feature, The House That Jack Built, sets out to do just […]

Review: Talking Heads-Stop Making Sense 35th anniversary

Review: Talking Heads-Stop Making Sense 35th anniversary

Up until a few days ago, I lived a very sheltered musical life. Switching religiously between Pulp, Elvis Costello, Elton John and Arctic Monkeys, I didn’t offer myself much variety in sound. Considering half of the listed attractions are from Sheffield, it was time to leap the pond to America and see what they had […]

Review: Yesterday

Review: Yesterday

A love letter to the The Beatles’ musical legacy would inevitably make its way into the world of popular film, if anything to showcase a valuable selection of their finest work. What would surprise me though, is if that same film featured a world in which nobody has ever heard of The Beatles, and that’s […]

Review: Crimes and Misdemeanors 30th anniversary

Review: Crimes and Misdemeanors 30th anniversary

The work of Woody Allen often settles well with me, especially the work he produced and directed throughout the 1970s and 1980s. They were very much the golden years of his career, and the beginning and end of the 80s provides two of his greatest works. Stardust Memories kickstarted the 80s off in style for […]

Review: Toy Story 4

Review: Toy Story 4

It’s hard to envision saying goodbye to Woody, Buzz and the rest of the gang. Toy Story 3 provided suitable closure to the trilogy I’ve watched since early childhood, and now Toy Story 4 is back to elongate the series, for no other reason (than what appears to be), financial gain. Cashing in on a the universal […]

Review: Spider-Man: Far from Home

Review: Spider-Man: Far from Home

The mad cow disease style raving that the Marvel Cinematic Universe manages to inspire is aggressively impressive and moderately scary. It’s not my cup of tea, and I say that before going into many of the Marvel films I end up enjoying. Spider-Man: Far from Home was an interesting movie for me, having not fully enjoyed a Marvel […]

Review: What We Do in the Shadows 5th Anniversary

Review: What We Do in the Shadows 5th Anniversary

“You will forget the contents of this movie.” Is the line that What We Do in the Shadows ends on, a neat fourth wall break to tie up a movie that becomes more of a risky irony when I realise, I don’t remember all that much from this movie. It’s good, but truly forgettable. A dark, mockumentary from the mind […]

Review: Disney’s Aladdin

Disney’s live action remakes bode well with day one fans of its animations, but awfully with critics. Live action remakes are a growing trend in the film industry, with audiences getting to experience ‘real life’ versions of Beauty and the Beast, The Jungle Book and now Aladdin. Disney isn’t leaving these remakes alone either, with […]

Review: Arctic

Review: Arctic

A one-man show can only end in two different ways. The first is complete disaster. A waste of time that surprises audience and critics on how it even made it past the planning stages. The second way this could end is if the one-man performance is somehow charismatic enough to engross an audience for an […]
