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 […]

Review: My Left Foot 30th Anniversary

Review: My Left Foot 30th Anniversary

Frequent collaborators Daniel Day-Lewis and Jim Sheridan are quick to produce Irish themed movies that tickle the fancy of critics, audiences and Academy voters. Their work in My Left Foot somewhat proves why this formula is so successful. The two have a consistency with one another that elevates their direction and performances to new heights. Christy Brown isn’t […]

Review: John Wick 3 – Parabellum

Review: John Wick 3 – Parabellum

Entering into the third leg of any trilogy is a daunting task, and few have ever pulled it off. Series’ have often ran out of steam by this point, and look to cash out on a high and mighty spectacle of callbacks to what made the first two so good. While John Wick 3: Parabellum is no […]

Review: John Wick 5th Anniversary

Review: John Wick 5th Anniversary

There’s something truly delicate about John Wick as a character. His wife is dead. His friends are limited, and those he holds close are out to kill him. His dog is dead, and his car is gone. This is enough to push any man over the edge, but there’s hell to pay when it’s John […]

Review: Rocketman

Review: Rocketman

I’ve got to say, this whole music biopic trend is quite the ride, isn’t it? Following on from the intensely mediocre biopic that was Bohemian Rhapsody last year, Rocketman is this years big blowout music feature – and to say I went into it with cynicism is to undersell how I was feeling. I wanted […]

Review: A Hard Day’s Night 55th Anniversary

Review: A Hard Day’s Night 55th Anniversary

My fascination with John, Paul, George and not so much Ringo has eluded friends, family and fans of my work.  To me though, The Beatles are still one of the greatest influences in the world of independently-made music, and it’s their feature film work that satisfies this independence the most.   A strange blend of promotional […]
