Movie Review: Radioactive

Movie Review: Radioactive

The term “spring cleaning” comes immediately into my mind with Radioactive. The idea that we should clear up the clutter of our homes and put our best foot forward. Well, it may be winter, but it’s time to declutter. I’ve had Radioactive in my sights for the best part of a year now, and for […]

Movie Review: Onward

Movie Review: Onward

I’m either too old or too jaded to enjoy Disney films, by the looks of it I’m one of the few people in my generation to suffer from this issue. An inability to enjoy their placid formula of modern filmmaking, I hope you’ll forgive me for looking elsewhere for compelling animated classics. But there’s simply […]

Movie Review: The Lego Star Wars Holiday Special

Movie Review: The Lego Star Wars Holiday Special

Pairing something I love (Christmas), with something I couldn’t care less for (Star Wars) is surely a way to annoy me. It’ll either ruin my Yuletide spirit or have me feeling an extended animosity toward a franchise and fanbase I’ve already had to deal with after I shunned Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Clearly, it’s […]

Movie Review: Red, White and Blue

Movie Review: Red, White and Blue

Whilst Mangrove and Lover’s Rock provided us with some truly exceptional filmmaking, the rest in this five-piece Steve McQueen series for the BBC strikes me with slight worry. Nothing major, just a bit of a wobble I suppose. Maybe it’s because we brace the unknown for the first time in this series, the first two episodes having toured film […]

Movie Review: The Christmas Chronicles: Part Two

Movie Review: The Christmas Chronicles: Part Two

There’s clearly no-one better to direct a Christmas piece than the man who originated two of the best-known and beloved celebrations of the holiday festivities. How Netflix managed to coax Christopher Columbus into directing The Christmas Chronicles: Part Two, is beyond me. He hasn’t had made the greatest choices in directing recently, and I suppose he’ll […]

Movie Review: Superintelligence

Movie Review: Superintelligence

Thanksgiving, a time for all you Americans out there to be thankful for the few things in your life worth keeping. For us across the pond, I’m sure we look relatively weird on bonfire night, and I’d say the same for you all over there if you didn’t get to couple this holiday with good […]

Movie Review: Stardust

Movie Review: Stardust

The legacy of musician, artist, and innovator of pop culture David Bowie will never quite be tainted by anything that fumbles his work in a cash-in retrospective. He released too much good music that millions, including myself, adore, to be harmed by any hack job or horror show that tries to tell the tale of […]

Movie Review: Faith Based

Movie Review: Faith Based

To this day, it still amazes me that there is such a large market for films that look to peddle faith. I have no qualms with religion or those who follow in the words of the almighty sky beasts that consolidate power to preachers, but to actually watch a horrid mess of a film funded […]

Movie Review: The Rhythm Section

Movie Review: The Rhythm Section

Although it has been a few years since I’ve seen it, I’ll stand by Atomic Blonde as setting the standard for female-led action flicks. Why fight against the titan of James Bond when you can settle for Charlize Theron and James McAvoy running around Cold War-era Russia whilst Blue Monday plays in the background? Feels like an obvious […]

Movie Review: Hillbilly Elegy

Movie Review: Hillbilly Elegy

With such a charming cast under its belt, Hillbilly Elegy has the star power to lure audiences into its story of three generations worth of reflection, respect, and reserved feelings. There is a clear warning sign attached to this piece though, and no, it’s not just because it’s marketed as a Netflix original. That does […]
