  • Terminator 2: Judgement Day 3D Review

    To say Terminator 2: Judgement Day 3D is the best movie released this summer would be doing it down. It’s one of the best movies released all year and still one of the greatest action movies ever made. And they don’t make them like this anymore.

  • The Hitman's Bodyguard Review

    Absurd, irreverent, playful, over the top and completely bonkers in parts – but it’s fun and engaging with it.

  • Logan Lucky Review

    Logan Lucky is about a group of criminals that seem dumb on the surface, but turn out to be smarter than they appear. Likewise, the film itself is much smarter than the ads might have you think.

  • The Dark Tower Review

    For a film that’s trying to be grand and epic, The Dark Tower doesn’t amount to anything more than a series of fantasy and young adult clichés.

  • The Wall Review

    The Wall focuses on the aftermath of the Iraq War as the US is continuing to “mop up” its effects. With pockets of resistance still scattered around the vast deserts, there are some soldiers still on duty across the country including sniper Shane Matthews (Cena) and his spotter Allen Isaac (Taylor-Johnson). On watch for almost 24 hours overlooking the construction of a pipeline, they soon…

    The pertinent themes that are studied within this Brian Fee endeavour are evidently interesting and deserving of cinematic treatment – and yet Cars 3 feels tedious in parts, with several sections of the movie that simply pass the time.

  • Final Portrait Review

    The paramount theme in Stanley Tucci’s Final Portrait is that of tedium. The narrative revolves around the art of a portrait, at the hands of a perpetual perfectionist, thus meaning we have to wait, ages, and ages, and ages, for him to get it right. Then even when we believe he has done, he rips it up and starts all over again. Naturally, this doesn’t exactly sound like a desirable cinematic…

    The result has a fair deal in common with a literal glass castle. It might’ve been made with good intentions, but was destined to collapse.

  • Transformers: The Last Knight Review

    In the seemingly never-ending procession of summer blockbusters that are now part of a gigantic, expanded universe that is all the rage right now, it’s the turn of the Robots in Disguise to join the party with the fifth installment in the wildly successful franchise based on the popular cartoon and toys from the 1980’s. It has now been a decade since the first film smashed its way onto the…

  • The Shack Review

    To evoke a sense of enchantment and tap into otherworldly themes is a challenge to pull off without veering into horribly saccharine territory, and it’s here Hazeldine fails spectacularly.

  • Atomic Blonde Review

    At its best, Atomic Blonde ranks alongside the best action flicks of the decade. On the whole, though, it’s just solid summer escapism with several kickass moments.

  • It Comes At Night Review

    The symbolism associated with a red door goes back through the history of stories, with its intrinsic links to danger, the beyond and further beyond. In the opening moments of writer/director Trey Edward Shults’ mysterious horror/thriller, we are presented with such a symbol, a warning sign right from the off that this one is going to take us down some dark, ominous alleys, figuratively,…

  • In This Corner of the World Review

    Riding a critical wave since its debut at the end of last year, In This Corner of the World tells the story of young Suzu, a precocious and loving teenage girl who dreams of bigger things than the world she inhabits in Japan with her family. A serial artist and dreamer, she longs to escape her life to find her passion and become something more than what is laid out in front of her, but soon…

Horror Movie Reviews

  • Annabelle: Creation Review

    The power of the horror genre at the moment is pretty astounding when you think about it – low cost of productions, strong possibility of high-profit margins, almost critic proof despite the raging battle between studios and Rotten Tomatoes over recent months – so it really is no surprise that sequels are a healthy business even if the film that preceded it wasn’t much cop in the first…

  • Life Review

    Heavily influenced by Alien, though somewhat too closely at times, it’s in the antagonist of the piece where such similarities are effective, for we have no way of understanding Calvin, and what it’s capable of.
