Supersonic Review

The highs, lows and infamous fall-outs and loss of band members throughout the career of Oasis have been highly documented over the years. Supersonic brings all of what makes Oasis the biggest rock n roll band in British history together to give us an intimately funny and nostalgic journey into a not so secret chronicle of the band. Coming from...

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Review

Once a beloved Director, Tim Burton, gave us an insight into the weird and wonderful world of Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands and many more darkly surreal atmospheric cinematic adventures. However, with Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children – quite like his most recent offerings including Alice Through the Looking Glass – lacks the heart which is needed to bring this self-indulgent...

Urban Hymn Review

The riots that took place in London and several other English cities in August 2011 were a shock to everyone, especially those living and working close to the events. Many people were confused what caused them; why were people looting high street shops and setting buildings on fire? An escalation of events after a protest following fatal police shooting of...

Free State of Jones Review

Compared to the US, British knowledge of the American Civil War in 1861-1865 is expected maybe to not be as strong as in the country in which it took place. An integral subject in their schooling, the history period in that part of the world isn't usually touched upon here. This piece of history does have a large importance and...

Southside With You Review

Charisma is one of Barak Obama’s endearing charms – Southside With You - which tells the story of Obama and the first lady, Michelle Obama na Robinson’s, first date has this as well as a romantic charm seeping through its very pores. First-time writer/director of Southside With You, Richard Tanne, shines a blinding yet extremely simply light on this tale...

Deepwater Horizon Review

There's always the conversation when Hollywood turns a real-life event into an epic blockbuster or Oscar-worthy drama: how much is true to life and how much has it been embellished or even completely rewritten for the entertainment of the masses? Then there's the issue of what the film industry decides to adapt, a lot of the events being sensitive subjects,...

Michael Bublé – Tour Stop 148 Review

With fans in their millions, Canadian jazz and swing singer, Michael Bublé has become a household name since hit Home came out in 2005. Known for his charisma, Bublé has encompassed the modern swing persona and his voice has become synonymous with Christmas. With 8 studio albums, 5 tours, and 5 Christmas specials under his belt, Michael Bublé now invites...

De Palma Review

Some filmmakers simply do not need an introduction; Brain De Palma is one of those exceptionally talented people. It’s a fitting tribute that in De Palma, Noah Baumbach, and Jake Paltrow have kept this documentary simply by just sticking the man himself in a chair and letting him run through his career bit by bit with no holds barred. De Palma...

Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words DVD Review

If there is one thing that Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words shows about one of Hollywood’s legendary award winning actresses is that in her thinking and ideals she was way ahead of her time. A strong charismatic woman who stood up to anyone but with such an elegant grace that mesmerised. Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words follows Bergman...

The Magnificent Seven Review

If you’re not a fan of the Western, Antoine Fuqua’s remake of the classic The Magnificent Seven - which is lead by the standard righteous performance of Denzel Washington – has just enough fun and frivolity to keep you rooting for the rogue yet good guys till the end. Fuqua - who has worked alongside Washington before in Training Day...

The Girl With All The Gifts Review

The aptest setting for a zombie film is a post-apocalyptic world - The Girl with all the Gifts, which is based on the novel by M.R. Carey – A familiar yet dystopian future which seems too close to the present world we live in today. The common formula for any given zombie is one who has no brains as they...

Embrace of the Serpent DVD Review

Accounts of many of the Amazonian cultures are few and far between, making it very difficult for us to know anything about such a large part of our world and the people who live there. Colombian director, Ciro Guerra, brought the Amazon to the cinema in 2015 with Embrace of the Serpent: a film inspired by 2 scientists' travel diaries...

Bridget Jones’s Baby Review

What the Romantic Comedy has been crying out for in a while is a return of good old fashioned slapstick and the dominance of one leading lady - one who most women can relate to. Finally, after 12 long years, that woman is back in a glorious return to form in Bridget Jones's Baby. The strong presence of women is...

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...

Blair Witch Review

20 years ago The Blair Witch Project spawned a whole new era for the horror genre - the found footage movie phenomenon blew up the movie world – not always producing any real quality nonetheless it gave birth to a new generation of fans. So when Lionsgate announced at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con that the upcoming film, The Woods...

Don’t Breathe Review

Sometimes simplicity goes a long way, with Don’t Breathe we get just that in this horror/thriller which has buckets of originality in a genre that just churns out the same story over and over again. With nerve-jangling and stomach churning moments it provides a refreshing unpredictability. Coming from the director who remade Evil Dead back in 2013, which was also...

Hell or High Water Review

Right off the back of playing a lead iconic character for the third time, in the rebooted trilogy of one of the biggest and most influential shows in pop culture, Chris Pine now stars in Hell or High Water, a small independent film set in Texas, trading in his stun gun for a pistol. In Hell or High Water, Toby...

Kubo and the Two Strings Review

Kubo and the Two Strings is the stop-animated successor of Coraline, Paranorman, and the Boxtrolls. Helmed from talented animator Travis Knight as his directorial debut. Kubo stands out from the previous filmography of his producing and animating efforts at Laika, through not being horror or a derivative thereof. Kubo is something completely different, with very few animated films to compare...

Anthropoid Review

Jamie Dornan films are like buses, His face hasn’t graced the big screen since Fifty Shades of Grey kicked up a storm now just a week after the release of The 9th Life of Louis Drax, and Dornan takes the joint lead alongside Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders) in an epic war story Anthropoid. Directed and co-written by British filmmaker Sean...

Ben-Hur Review

With an epic biblical classic such as Ben-Hur, which was originally a novel by Lew Wallace published in 1880, comes with it the desire to remake the hell out of it, from films to TV series and 2016 see’s yet another remake. One that excites all too rarely and is full of cringe-worthy moments to make the best of...

An Entanglement Review

Unlike feature films, plays, concerts etc., short films aren't necessarily viewed as an entertainment medium for the casual viewer. With films like An Entanglement, it's a shame that short films aren't particularly mainstream enough to be seen by a large number of people. At just 16 minutes long, the short film starring Shiri Appleby (unREAL) features just 3 characters and...

Sausage Party Review

There’s one thing of high importance worth noting about Sausage Party, this food based animation is in no way suitable for any child under the age of 13, Sexual innuendos, pot smoking perishables and with every other word practically being an expletive, certainly see’s this overstepping the boundaries in leaps and bounds. Cleverly written by Seth Rogen as well as...

Cafe Society Review

So very typically Woody Allen, Cafe Society has that demure and romanticised imagery of elegance and grace of 1930’s Hollywood and New York. Lavished in the fascination of the middle class with lashings of opulence, but this vintage Allen lacks the substance to maintain its beauty. Written, directed and narrated by the soft slow tones of Allen, Cafe Society has...

The 9th Life of Louis Drax Review

Before the novel, The 9th Life of Louis Drax was even published back in 2004, the late Director, Anthony Minghella, had already optioned the story for his production company, but with his many successful projects already in the pipeline never quite got round to making the film. The film, however, was later picked up by Anthony’s Son, actor Max Minghella,...

Brotherhood Review

Noel Clarke’s Brotherhood is being dubbed as the first British trilogy, the third and final film in the Hood series of films, Kidulthood and Adulthood. A film that has been 10 years in the making which see’s the film evolve into more of a gangster genre film than an actual Hood movie, proving the script has come of age...

War Dogs Review

Director Todd Phillips brings together the old crew from The Hungover Trilogy – including Bradley Cooper - for his production of War Dogs, However, don’t expect the high jinx and ridiculousness those films brought. You can expect the film to be extremely men-centric as women take the backseat in this ‘based on a true story’ plot. Yes, believe it or...

The Purge Election Year Review

There is certainly one thing that The Purge Election Year will do and have the series of films die-hard fans whooping for delight in yet another blood-spattered offering in a genre that quite frankly needs a bomb up its backside to make them worthwhile watching again. It’s the same old story for The Purge Election Year as it brings nothing...

David Brent: Life on the Road Review

It’s been quite a few years since David Brent made an appearance, but what seems to be Ricky Gervais’s fall back character comes hurtling back at us in David Brent: Life on the Road, a kind of where are they now mockumentary which sees’s Brent still longing for Rock Star status. Written, Directed and starring Gervais himself, David Brent: Life...

Louder Than Bombs DVD Review

How we cope with the death of a loved one differs from person to person, Louder than Bombs tells a tale of one family's grief at the loss of their mother and wife, with somber, poignant moments hitting home with a heartbreaking grace to all of us. Director Joachim Trier presses on the nerve of a family in turmoil in...

Nerve Review

It’s not very often when a film actually ties your stomach in knots and makes you feel every last second of what’s playing out in front of you. Nerve ticks both those boxes. It, without a doubt, lives up to its name. Nerve is based on a hugely popular young-adult novel by Jeanne Ryan and captures the very essence of...
