  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - Review

    Edwards stated from the offset he wanted to create a war movie, and that’s exactly where this production triumphs.

Action Movie Reviews

  • Operation Chromite - Review

    A film that wants nothing more than to appease an international market, yet seems to be so caught up by this endeavour that it loses sight of the one thing that matters most; the story.

  • Passengers - Review

    Unfortunately, even with two of the most likable stars on the planet, Passengers is a disappointment.

  • Ballerina - Review

    The film is enriched, persistently, but the glorious aesthetic experience on offer as the vibrancy and romanticism of the 1879 Paris setting is wondrous on the big screen.

Drama Movie Reviews

  • T2 Trainspotting - Review

    Tonally familiar to the original, showing off that same, unique ability to move seamlessly between comedy and tragedy, to be dark in parts, hilarious in others, and in some scenes, both.

  • Jackie - Review

    It’s with some surprise that this is the first time on screen that we have seen any kind of portrayal of the life of Jackie Kennedy Onassis, the wife of legendary President John F. Kennedy. Her life was as fascinating as any of the first ladies seen in US history (perhaps one the most popular) but until now Hollywood hasn’t “come calling”. Now, under the direction of acclaimed director…

  • Live by Night - Review

    While Live by Night has all the right tools to make a great gangster epic, Affleck borrows from too many other films.

  • Silence - Review

    Silence not only inspires us to stand by our personal beliefs, but it also encourages us to not force those beliefs on others.

  • Why Him? - Review

    As far as recent holiday movies go, Why Him? has more laughs than Almost Christmas and more heart than Bad Santa 2.

  • La La Land - Review

    La La Land is a beautiful film in parts, and whilst there is a lot to admire and enjoy about it – particularly in the first half – it crumbles away in far too many significant places as Chazelle stretches beyond the spectacle.

  • Office Christmas Party - Review

    The addition of guns and car chases just feels cheap and superfluous; rather than thrive in any understatement and the humanity of the characters at hand, they just opt for inane action to pass the time.

  • Rupture - Review

    Rupture revels in its elusive nature, as an immersive thriller that places the viewer in the protagonist’s shoes, completely unaware as to what is going on.

  • Colossal - Review (Toronto International Film Festival)

    Genre mash-ups can be a work of genius or a flat out dud; able to breath life into a stale idea, or add another ill-conceived pastiche that appears more like a parody. Nacho Vigalondo’s Colossal is a work of immense feeling, pivoting its dark, emotional story back and forth through a quirky small-town atmosphere and a nightmarish Kaiju attack on Seoul.

    Anne Hathaway stars as Gloria, a…

  • Arrival - Review (Toronto International Film Festival)

    Movie magic reaches its outermost limits when you’re sitting in on a new Sci-Fi film that carries an aura of mystery. Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival hits all the traditional notes, he keeps it gripping, emotional and acutely down to earth.

    There’s no shaky cam, noisy explosions or monstrous aliens on the prowl in this story, instead, we have a modest, visually…

  • The Bye Bye Man - Review

    Well it’s January, which means we’re bound to get at least one lackluster horror flick that wasn’t good enough for an October release. And wouldn’t you know it, The Bye Bye Man perfectly fits the bill.

  • Chi-Raq - Review

    Though it’s Greek mythology that lays the foundations for this narrative to thrive off, there is something distinctly Shakespearian about Chi-Raq.

  • The Wailing - Review (London Film Festival)

    In addition to being an entertaining horror, The Wailing is far from a surface level experience, with ideas surrounding immigration, coming to terms with a colonial past, and the darkness in the heart of men all bubbling away in the background throughout.
