Review: Show Dogs

Review: Show Dogs

The era of kid’s movies is dead. Quality and consistency don’t matter when you can slap together Stanley Tucci and Will Arnett, or at least that’s what Show Dogs wants us to believe. Director Raja Gosnell’s putrid outing shows us that the market for kid‘s movies is just what I’d expected Illumination Studios to turn it into. […]

Review: Fahrenheit 11/9

Review: Fahrenheit 11/9

Michael Moore is quite genuinely one of the most prolific and enjoyable documentary makers around. He’s the American Louis Theroux, and that’s no small feat.   I hate to say cliché taglines such as this, but Fahrenheit 11/9 is probably the most important documentary to release in the past few years. Its dissection of Bernie Sanders’ election run, […]

Review: Venom

View this post on Instagram Tomorrow. #Venom A post shared by Venom (@venommovie) on Feb 7, 2018 at 8:59am PST You know, I really wanted to like Venom. I really did. I thought surely it couldn’t be as bad as the reviews suggested. Surely it couldn’t possibly be THAT bad, right? Turns out I was […]

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. But after the limited output provided by Cold Pursuit, I’m […]

Retrospective: Trainspotting: all grown up

Retrospective: Trainspotting: all grown up

By Nathan J. McMenam I grew up in a post-Trainspotting world. Released six months before I was born, the soundtrack of my youth included Underworld and Iggy Pop, though my teeny, tiny brain wasn’t able to comprehend the complexities of addiction, and the choice to rebel against the world we’re taught to exist in – […]

Review: After Life (SPOILER FREE)

Credit: @rickygervais (Instagram) Since this show is one that everyone should watch at least once, because of this I will try to avoid any sort of spoilers. Ricky Gervais stars as Tony, a widower, juggling grief and his life with recently losing his wife, Lisa, to cancer. The Netflix show highlights the process of losing […]

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: Ralph Breaks The Internet

Ralph Breaks The Internet might be the single most “meh” movie of all time. There’s nothing particularly wrong with it, but there’s also nothing really stand-out or special about it. I speak as somebody who absolutely loved the original Wreck-It Ralph, it’s one of my favourite Disney films, in the same halls as films such […]

If I Stay (2014): a movie to help with loss or grief

If I Stay (2014): a movie to help with loss or grief

By Shannon Murphy This movie can turn you into an emotional wreck. As well as being one of the reasons I’m no longer allowed to pick movies in my family, it allows for a more developed connection to characters, as you follow Mia (played by Chloé Grace Moretz who is largely known for roles in […]
