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...

Pete’s Dragon Review

High expectations never come with most remakes in an industry that seems to have lost its originality. That could be said of Disney’s remake of the 1977 classic of the Pete's Dragon, however, the 2016 version came as a surprising delight albeit a little cheesy in places. Director, David Lowry has given Pete’s Dragon a whole host of charm and...

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates Review

What you should know is that Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is loosely based around two real brothers called, well, Mike and Dave, in their search to find dates for their straight-laced sister’s wedding under her strict orders. What this culminates in is a film which is a one trick pony which relies too heavily on trying to...

Suicide Squad Review

Warner Bros. may have to start thinking about their DC universe strategy after the big disappointment of Batman V Superman earlier this year, Whilst Suicide Squad certainly outranks this poor show of entertainment it still nowhere lives up to the hype. Superman is dead to the delight of the US Government and U.S. Intelligence officer Amanda Waller played with a...

Up For Love Review

You may know the face of Jean Dujardin from the 2011 award winning film The Artist, the black and white silent film which won the hearts of critics and audiences alike worldwide. Now Dujardin is back as a pint-sized charmer in Up For Love, it may be quirky but it doesn’t hit the same buttons as The Artist. In Up...

Finding Dory Review

13 years after the huge box office success back in 2003 of Finding Nemo comes it’s adorable and message driven sequel in the form of the that lovable forgetful fish Dory, in Finding Dory. Filled with delightful cuteness and lashings of laughter Pixar, have yet again, hit the animation jackpot. Even though the base storyline doesn’t venture further than Finding...

The BFG Review

Nostalgia reigns in Stephen Spielberg’s film adaptation of the much loved writings of Roald Dahl. The BFG will connect not only with its younger audience but mostly with the parents who grew up with Dahl’s 1982 offering. Staying true to The BFG’s origin’s, Spielberg has created a film with magical wonder and tender grace which becomes a visual spectacle for...

Born to be Blue Review

Born to be Blue adds its name to this year’s expanding list of biopics with a difference. This time looking at a period in the life of Jazz musician Chet Baker played here by an exceptional Ethan Hawke. It's Hawke’s performance that uplifts this story from what can be a very slow almost humdrum of a film. Following in slightly...

Keanu Review

Little known in the UK Comedy Duo Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele has been making American audiences weep with laughter for years.

The Hard Stop Review

Back in 2011, the young life of Mark Duggan was taken at the hands of the police after a Hard Stop on the London roads of Tottenham, North London.

Now You See Me 2 Review

The four horsemen are back in Now You See Me 2 with a story that doesn’t fall far from the tree but with a copious amount of CGI which will boggle the mind and at a pace which feels like you’re in a speeding car. There is nothing wrong with a few twists and turns, in fact, a good thriller...

The Colony Review

1973 saw Chile in the midst of a Chilean Coup; under the leadership of the fascist regime of General Pinochet, the Chilean People were ready to take a stand. The Colony, which is based on true events, sets itself smack bang in the middle of this uprising with horrendous outcomes but does it try just a little too hard? The...

Central Intelligence Review – High in Entertainment Value, Low in Brain Cell Use.

Kevin Hart churns out films at a rate of a speeding train; the next on his non-stopping high speed express comes in Central Intelligence. Starring alongside wrestler turned lovable actor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Quite frankly, if it wasn’t for Johnson this film would be a total wash out. There certainly is a budding comedic bromanic between Hart and Johnson...

Ma Ma Review – Quirky Melodrama of Life, Death and True Love.

Penelope Cruz takes center stage in Ma Ma, a story which focuses on one woman fighting a brave battle with Breast Cancer almost on her own. Ma Ma takes a Cruz and strips her of her voluptuous and stunning image to show a more vulnerable and laid bare yet beautiful woman. Ma Ma may be written and directed by Julio...

Elvis & Nixon Review – Comically absurd tale which lacks gumption but has a certain charm.

Back in 1970, the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, posed for a picture with the then president of the United States, Richard Nixon in the presidential home of The White House and this is where the story begins for Elvis & Nixon. Elvis & Nixon proceeds to tell us one version of events that led up to this...

Back in 2013, Director James Wan brought us The Conjuring, a horror based on one of the real life stories of renowned demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren – it had the largest opening for an original horror movie and has been one of the highest grossing horror films to date next to The Exorcist. 2016 see’s Wan deliver us a...

The Boss Review – Did someone say this was a comedy?

With a Melissa McCarthy film, you know exactly what to expect and with The Boss, where she plays a fallen business tycoon they story is no different. Which is a major shame as with the right storyline and script McCarthy could really shine as she deserves? This time, McCarthy teams up with her husband, Ben Falcone (Bridesmaids,Spy) to put pen...
