Movie Review: The Hummingbird Project

Movie Review: The Hummingbird Project

Wall Street is pretty competitive as far as I’m aware, and according to The Hummingbird Project, milliseconds matter. Feeling more and more like a biopic until you realise it’s a completely fabricated work of fiction, The Hummingbird Project shows us how scratching a couple of decimals off of internet bandwidth can make millions of dollars. Even I understand the […]

Movie Review: Dolittle

Movie Review: Dolittle

Since being released from the clutches of his Marvel Cinematic Universe contract, it’s nice to see that Robert Downey Jr. is utilising the creative choices and freedom available to him wisely. Instead of prepping himself for an Academy Awards campaign or even carving himself a comfortable career in solid supporting roles in various films, Robert […]

Movie Review: A Hidden Life

Movie Review: A Hidden Life

I enjoy films like A Hidden Life a little too much all thanks to the time I studied history as an A-Level. Because of this, I can tell you that those who refused conscription in England would be lauded by the public and sent white feathers, while in Germany they were ostracised from their communities, tortured, and […]

Movie Review: Spies in Disguise

Movie Review: Spies in Disguise

Do you think there’ll ever be a time where we receive a modern spy comedy that doesn’t make reference to the James Bond series? It feels more and more light a rite of passage for any budding young filmmaker to reference as many popular brands as possible, in the hopes that this popularity may rub […]

Movie Review: Angel Has Fallen

Movie Review: Angel Has Fallen

Sometimes the very antithesis of mediocrity is just enough to rekindle a slight energy in a former passion or hobby. For the past week or two, I’ve had no energy whatsoever to write, read, watch films or even listen to music. Perhaps I work too hard, who knows, but one for certain is that I […]

Movie Review: Downhill

Movie Review: Downhill

Whenever I see the words “Will” and “Ferrell” at the start of a film these days, a little bit of me dies inside. The former funny man is reaching that point in his career where his comfortable, typecast niche has become somewhat of a tremendously grating role. A role that he has cracked through with […]

Movie Review: Godzilla King of the Monsters

Movie Review: Godzilla King of the Monsters

Big burly monsters leaping around shooting fire at each other for two hours doesn’t have the same appeal as it used to now that we know it’s all CGI and not men in costumes pratting about, slipping over and slapping one another. Godzilla has lost his scaly charm, and for better or for worse, it shows in Godzilla: […]

Movie Review: The Last Thing He Wanted

Movie Review: The Last Thing He Wanted

The last thing I wanted was to watch The Last Thing He Wanted, the latest Netflix original to come from the mind of director Dee Rees. With an ensemble cast featuring the likes of Anne Hathaway, Willem Dafoe, Ben Affleck and Toby Jones, I was expecting a tight political thriller that would match the likes of Argo, All […]

Movie Review: All the Bright Places

Movie Review: All the Bright Places

Oh good, another Netflix original, coming of age film set-in middle-class America. I was worried sick! Had we ever run out of these films then I would simply be lost without them. Where else would I go to pretend to care about the problems that face suburban families in midtown Illionis? We should thank our lucky […]

Movie Review: Guns Akimbo

Movie Review: Guns Akimbo

Long anticipated by a great deal of those who are fans of action packed, riotous affairs, Guns Akimbo has finally come into the public limelight after years of what I would assume have been absolute development hell. I’d been excited for the film upon its initial announcement, something about Harry Potter running around in his […]
