Review: Three Colours: White – 25th Anniversary

Review: Three Colours: White – 25th Anniversary

After the inspired events of Three Colours: Blue, it could only go downhill for the second and third instalments of the Three Colours Trilogy. Granted, as the first in the series was a close masterpiece, the second in the series, White, had its work cut out for it. Contained within a completely different location, and only loosely connected to the […]

Review: Taken 3 (5th Anniversary)

Review: Taken 3 (5th Anniversary)

It’s always a terrifying sight to behold when a mediocre movie receives a sequel. Taken 2 looks like the Citizen Kane of action movies compared to the third instalment with the now visibly tired Liam Neeson. The guy can’t catch a break, and this time he’s been framed for the murder of his wife. On the run and with […]

Review: Mary and Max 10th Anniversary

Review: Mary and Max 10th Anniversary

Friendship is a valuable thing, apparently, and I feel that’s the driving message of Mary and Max, a beautifully animated film with an even better tone. Animation is a superb way to invite an audience into a larger than life world, but with Mary and Max quite the opposite occurs and it’s what makes it so excellently unique. […]

Review: Sicario: Day of the Soldado

Review: Sicario: Day of the Soldado

The ongoing trend of modern action movies is to focus more on the drama than the violent acts of blowing up baddies and swinging in on one-liners. This shift in focus has been somewhat of a blessing and a curse, producing ample films like Sicario: Day of the Soldado; which, for better or worse, manages to […]

Review: Avengers: Endgame

Review: Avengers: Endgame

  The year is 2008. A young boy is at Blockbusters with his auntie. Nothing really catches his eye, until he notices something out of the corner of his eye: a DVD called Iron Man. The boy rents the film and takes it back to his auntie’s. After watching the film, he thinks not much […]

Review: Wild Rose

Review: Wild Rose

The star-studded dream of hitting it big in the music industry is, by all means, a dream many people have. Not me, but that’s because I know my limits. I’ll live, breathe and die my way through a middling career in and out of writing shoddy reviews like this. Regardless of my ambitions, it’s nice […]

Review: This is Spinal Tap – thirty fifth anniversary

Review: This is Spinal Tap – thirty fifth anniversary

A classic 80s movie, once more brought to us by the prolific and ever talented Rob Reiner, This is Spinal Tap evaded me for so, so many years. My only knowledge of it was the “Turn it up to 11” joke, and that’s only because they did a joke about it in an episode of Peep Show. Other than […]

Review: Whatever Works – tenth anniversary

Review: Whatever Works – tenth anniversary

The strengths of Woody Allen’s direction often coincide with his prolific leading man material. So to see him stay hidden away behind the camera always yields interesting and in this case, mediocre results. Modern Allen is often criticised as being nowhere near the standard of his 80s and 90s outputs, and rightly so. On the off chance that he […]
