Eddie the Eagle Review – The Feel Good Movie of the Year, Eddie the Eagle is Charm Personified

It’s no great surprise that the new film from Director Dexter Fletcher, Eddie the Eagle, just won Gold at the Sundance film festival this week. There is absolutely nothing about this movie you could hate, with a feel good factor off the charts, it’s truly inspiring. Eddie the Eagle Edwards was an unlikely hero back in the 1988 Calgary Olympics,...

A Monster Calls Review

Don’t be fooled by the clips or trailers you may have seen for A Monster Calls, aiming for one type of audience it may not be suitable for with a subtle comparison to the recent adaptation of Spielberg’s The BFG. It’s much darker than you would expect from a so-called ‘children’s’ film with its theme of loss and guilt at...

Phantom Thread Review

It’s almost criminal that Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread is Daniel Day-Lewis’s swansong. The award winning actor has taken method to levels of extremity and immersed himself into character after character with a passionate realism that embroils audiences to his pictures. In his final bow, Lewis brings to life Reynolds Woodcock’s 1950’s style and grace with an artist’s flair of confidence and disdain; giving a master class in believability in...

Sing Street Review – Charmingly Irish, Funny Musical Coming of Age Story.

Sing Street takes us on a musical journey of 80’s Dublin, almost like a biographical story of writer and director John Carney’s own youth, taking his inspiration from his own teenage years growing up in Dublin. Struggling with his own identity, it’s a heart-warming coming of age story. In Sing Street, Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) comes from a fairly well-off family...

Dunkirk Review

The hype is real for Christopher Nolan’s much anticipated Dunkirk, it’s a spectacular and very British film of epic proportions, of thundering dread that rains down like an apocalyptic bomb with its relentless bombardment of emotive fear and the realisation of the horrors our grandfathers and great grandfathers went through just to survive. Nolan’s Dunkirk is a far cry from...

Manchester By The Sea Review

Kenneth Lonergan returns to the director’s chair with Manchester by the Sea, bringing with him an all too familiar sense of profundity regarding the human condition. Lonergan’s previous films, You Can Count On Me and Margaret have philosophised as well as debated over similar themes, normally accompanied by a myriad melancholy. He is a keen observer of the absurdity of...

Arrival Review

Director Denis Villeneuve has gone from Sicario’s drug-war thriller to a sci-fi alien encounter story with Arrival.  A Close Encounters of A Third Kind for the modern generation with an impeccable stylistic, hypnotic and awe-inspiring yet emotional narrative which will resonate within the soul. The Alien encounter genre certainly hasn’t delivered anything out of this world in a number of...

Star Trek Beyond Review

sofia boutella - Star Trek Beyond

50 years ago Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek universe came to life which has seen millions across the globe take this little space adventure to their hearts. It’s extremely fitting, that for its 50th anniversary this much beloved franchise delivers a respectable nod to the original crew in Star Trek Beyond. In fact, Star Trek Beyond, now with its crew fully...

Call Me By Your Name Review

Love is love no matter what gender it befalls; Luca Guadagino states this fact boldly and without repercussion in such a delightfully tender composition, elegantly sneaking up on the audience with a warmth that sings out with operatic audacity. Brokeback Mountain, this is not, the brashness of the relationship between the two men there was laden heavy with bigotry,...

I, Daniel Blake Review

It’s not very often we are treated to a cinematic story that hits so close home. I, Daniel Blake hammer’s the nail right on the head off frustration with a fictional tale of one man being screwed over by the state with grim and anger inducing consequences. I, Daniel Blake – Which won this year’s Palme d'Or at the Cannes...

Lady Macbeth Review

Titles can be deceptive, despite the title here, Lady Macbeth isn’t the wife of Shakespeare’s tyrannical ruler who slowly delves deep into the realms of madness, however, this production is a cunning minx of murderously intoxicating drama, and utterly absorbing filmmaking at its finest. The true subject of this beguiling period piece is in fact director William Oldroyd and screenwriter...

War for the Planet of the Apes Review

In the final showdown of Ape versus Human, Andy Serkis’s Caeser stands strong in an epic blockbuster of swinging action, humanised humour and a tender heart of morality that could teach human’s a thing or two – a fitting end to possible one the best trilogies to grace our screens. In the third and final chapter, set two years after...

La La Land Review

The feel-good days of the Golden age of cinema and Hollywood have been lost for many years to the gluttonous money making franchises the studios churn out at the speed of a juggernaut. There is no questioning the immense excitement and buzz La La Land is creating amongst not only critics across the world but the awards institutions too. From the...

Hunt For The Wilderpeople Review

As December approaches, selections of the top film releases of the year begin to surface. Ever since it’s theatrical release, Hunt For The Wilderpeople has been the talk of the town and no doubt will be high up on lists of critics and audiences alike. The film hails from New Zealand’s Taika Waititi, director of mockumentary horror comedy, What We...

A Star is Born Review

Now on its fourth remake, A Star is Born heads into a new generation with Bradley Cooper not just at the helm of this gut-wrenchingly emotional and epic version but also having a hand in co-writing the script and taking a rough and mentally damaged role. The history of this story goes as far back as 1937, it later...

Hacksaw Ridge Review

With any war, one thing you’re guaranteed is a copious amount of blood and grisly gruesome scenes, with the Mel Gibson, directed Hacksaw Ridge, he, in no way shy’s away from that very fact – those with a delicate disposition do not enter this thrillingly gripping story lightly or you may find yourself reaching for a sick bag at...

Coco Review

Disney team up yet again with Pixar for their latest cultural offering with a tremendous amount of heart and vibrancy. Director Lee Unkrich’s vision of spectacular colour embodies the Disney template spicing up the picture with humour, sprinkling with a melancholic learning experience of cultural traditions and grief and filling its very core with catchy musical tinklings - especially with a touching ditto...

The Shape of Water Review

There is no disputing Guillermo del Toro’s worth as an extraordinary filmmaker. From Pan’s Labyrinth to Hell Boy bringing fantasy to life with a beating heart. In his latest fairytale for adults he teams, a mute cleaner with her ideal mysterious partner of a human-shaped creature of the sea, the beauty and wonder of his layered creation is a story of a...

10 Cloverfield Lane Review – A Tension Fuelled and Compelling Journey into Genius Filmmaking.

Can we call 10 Cloverfield Lane a sequel? Maybe not,  but this next chapter in this hugely anticipated franchise from Producer JJ Abrams is nothing short of pure film genius and excellent cast performances which will see you perplexed into who and what we should believe. Back in 2008 Cloverfield set a certain standard for the first person sc-fi-horror genre,...

Journey’s End Review

RC’ Sheriff’s poignant war story has been adapted for the stage and film on numerous occasions over the years. In Saul Dibbs latest adaptation for the big screen, we are engulfed in a deeply affecting era of hope and despair on a personal and emotionally charged level. Stripping back to just the essentials and delving deep into the souls of those forced onto the front...

Captain Fantastic DVD Review

Parenting is one of life’s experiences that no-one can put their finger on how to do ‘the right way’, yet ironically most parents think their way is right. Ben Cash (Viggo Mortensen), never outwardly vocalises a disdain with the current world and it’s appropriateness to raise children in, however, his choice to dwell with his six children in the woods...

The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years Review

Becoming famous is besmirched as easy and frivolous these days. In a world full of reality stars, vloggers with millions of subscribers, and viral videos giving the everyman 15 seconds of fame, it doesn't take much to be a sensation. It's so subconscious to the current population and the concept of being famous has changed dramatically at an increasing...

Creed Review – Can the Next Generation go back to its Roots?

In Creed, we have a new chapter of the Rocky franchise, a time to make way for the next generation in the form of Apollo Creed’s son, Adonis. One question we may ask ourselves, do we really need another instalment to ruin the memory of this cult classic? The late World heavyweight Champion, Apollo Creed, had an affair before he...

Embrace Review

With the phenomena of social media and the internet at the centre of global culture, it seems crucial that the discussion of body image is addressed. The conversation has actually been happening for a very long time, but without ever really managing to break the surface of the blanket of mass media that surrounds and dictates our lives every day....

Love/Me/Do Review

An unofficial but commonly agreed upon measure of how good a film is, is if it stays with you after the credits. Do you think about the characters, the story, a particular image? In some instances, you’ll tell people you know because it’s on your mind and you want to discuss it with someone. Even more so if there’s...

The Ivory Game Review
