  • The Mummy - Review

    The previous Mummy trilogy thrived in its sense of mystery, with several clues and puzzles our protagonists had to overcome along the way, but on this occasion Kurtzman has taken a rather more formulaic approach, as what transpires is an archetypal survival horror flick.

  • Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge Review

    There’s quite the debate raging right now on two fronts that have become too interlocked in recent years that it’s strange to remember a time when such a conversation wasn’t being had in at least some portion of the film community – between critics and fans and, consequently, reviews (Rotten Tomatoes specifically) and box-office takings, particularly in the US. This past week, some…

  • Bushwick - Review (Cannes 2017)

    Bushwick is a deeply silly movie which massively bungles its politics and has little to impress in its pointless and poorly executed form.

  • How to Talk to Girls at Parties - Review (Cannes 2017)

    Loud, ramshackle and far to eager to impress, punk meets aliens picture How to Talk to Girls at Parties is like every bad gig you’ve ever been to in a small venue in which a band attempts to poorly regurgitate a bunch of cliched ideas and postures.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The Book of Henry - Review

    The film takes a dark, completely unexpected turn about halfway through, and tonally Trevorrow struggles to go along with it.

  • Churchill - Review

    While compelling in parts, Churchill may well have found its home more so on a smaller screen, feeling all too televisual in its approach.

  • You Were Never Really Here - Review (Cannes 2017)

    At less than ninety minutes, Ramsay and editor Joe Bini manage to make You Were Never Really Here a film that feels simultaneously deeply rich and incredibly sparse.

  • Sleepless - Review

    With a myriad of plot holes, it’s a film you might not want to take at face value, with an injection of irreverence, and a playful nature that just about lets it off the hook. Just.

  • A Cure For Wellness Review

    It’s this ambiguity which is the film’s greatest selling point, as we can never judge whether the lead is losing his mind, or if he’s genuinely on to something – and the whole experience lingers on this very mystery.
