Cold Pursuit Review – a third opinion

Cold Pursuit Review – a third opinion

Liam Neeson has always been able to provide audiences with fairly strong performances, regardless of what style of movie he’s making. His action movie outputs are something I’m not well versed in, but nonetheless was a sub-genre I had convinced myself was worth checking out.

Review: The Festival

Review: The Festival

Did anybody ever expect anything from Joe Thomas post-Inbetweeners? He starred in Chickens which was doomed to fail from the beginning and has since cropped up in White Gold. That’s about everything Thomas has done, so to see him cast in the leading spot of a new comedy from Film4 is a genuine surprise.  It’s a nice surprise […]

Review: Game Night

Review: Game Night

Comedy is subjective, let’s make that clear right from the beginning. What one person may find astoundingly hilarious; another may find disgustingly obtuse. The greatest comedy I have still ever seen is Guest House Paradiso, a movie every one of my friends loathe entirely. By all means, do they have their reasons, and it’s hard not […]

Review: The Death of Stalin

Review: The Death of Stalin

The title of this film does not immediately suggest that it is going to be a comedy. When I first looked at this I thought it was going to be a historical drama rather like The Other Boleyn Girl (2008). My knowledge of Russian history and politics is sketchy to say the least – especially […]
