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...

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...

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...

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. Keanu see’s the duo break onto the big screen with the help of an adorable kitten named.... yes you guessed it Keanu. Everything about Keanu has cheese written all over it and it simply shouldn’t work as a...

Ice Age: Collision Course Review

Ice Age has been thrilling audiences of all ages for – can you believe – the past 15 years, always a big hit with the younger generation which adults can enjoy too, it’s actually the second biggest animated motion picture franchise in the world. With the 5th installment of this franchise can they really bring anything new and deliver...
