Review: Noelle

Review: Noelle

The onslaught of Christmas begins, and while families begin to celebrate and prepare for the most wonderful time of year, I sit at home, alone, watching straight to DVD Christmas movies while I drink eggnog out of a wine glass to make it seem like I’m having a merry old time. Christmas (and more importantly […]

Review: Klaus

Review: Klaus

In an attempt at breaking my will to live, Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hollywood all teamed together and decided to throw out as many Christmas related movies as they could in one week. Beating the record of last year, we’ve seen more Christmas oriented feature length pieces in the past week than we could have […]

Review: The Good Liar

Review: The Good Liar

Sometimes it’s quite nice to see that old legends of the thriller genre can still cough up a great performance without really trying. Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren lead a resoundingly strong thriller that derails itself rapidly in the final ten minutes of its running time. The Good Liar is the latest in a slew of British […]

Review: Take the Money and Run 50th Anniversary

Review: Take the Money and Run 50th Anniversary

Woody Allen’s work with screwball comedy has been somewhat of an underwhelming experience. Sleeper and its insistence on becoming a homage to that of slapstick silent films got in the way of some otherwise great dialogue. If we exclude the editing in and variations that he provides in What’s Up, Tiger Lily? then this is […]

Review: In the Loop 10th Anniversary

Review: In the Loop 10th Anniversary

Politics isn’t exactly a subject that can provide much humour anymore. That’s a statement with factual credibility to it. The death of Charlie Brooker’s Yearly Wipe alongside the grim standings of Brexit: An Uncivil War are two examples of how the modern political piece is going to be dissected for which wing of politics it sits on, […]

Review: Detective Pikachu

Review: Detective Pikachu

If the slapdash smatterings of nostalgia aren’t able to pull you into the money grabbing CGI-fest that Detective Pikachu is then you’ll struggle through your viewing nearly as much as I did. Depending almost entirely on nostalgia factor, Detective Pikachu is what happens when the new generation long for films that make them feel young again. But I was part […]

Review: Official Secrets

Review: Official Secrets

It’s always nice when the one film of the year you’re excited for isn’t a massive disappointment. Official Secrets looks to discuss the fallout of the leaked Iraq War documents and the impact it left on the United Kingdom. Following the real-life story of Katharine Gun, a GCHQ employee and Martin Bright, a journalist for The […]

Review: Rocketman

Review: Rocketman

As an admirer of Elton John’s work for some time now, I felt it surprising that I really didn’t know all that much about his rise to fame and the struggles he took on during this time. In all honesty I didn’t realise Elton John didn’t write his own lyrics either, especially given how personal […]

Review: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 10th Anniversary

Review: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 10th Anniversary

I feel it an honour bound duty to head back into the films I missed as a child, and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was by far the biggest excursion I had yet to tackle. Aside from all the Disney animated classics I still haven’t seen, the only non-Disney films I could think of […]

Review: The Dead Don’t Die

Review: The Dead Don’t Die

  I’m surprised The Dead Don’t Die is as annoyingly bad as it is. Such a talented cast and engaging director in the form of Jim Jarmusch try feverishly hard to bring us something worth our while, yet fail in surprising fashion. Maybe the broad variety of cast members, paired with a visual design that doesn’t really scream […]
