Review: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid 50th Anniversary

Review: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid 50th Anniversary

Although I’ve not seen enough of his movies to confirm this, I truly think Robert Redford is one of the most consistently dependable actors to have ever worked in Hollywood. His swan song leading role in The Old Man and His Gun had me interested in checking out the rest of his filmography, and where […]

A personal challenge to watch Friends before graduation

A personal challenge to watch Friends before graduation

In 21 years of my life, I had never watched an episode of Friends, I had heard about it, knew the theme and understood that it was supposed to be this massive part of 90s and early 00s American culture. So when I told people at uni that I had never seen an episode they […]

Review: Halloween

Review: Halloween

Having not seen John Carpenter’s rendition of Halloween, it felt a bit silly to dive into a reboot sequel series that I’d had little interest for. Even now I’m struggling to think of my reasoning for watching David Gordon Green’s abysmal take on the renowned slasher classic.  Perhaps the main problem of all is the pacing […]

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, […]

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: 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 […]
