Black Widow Review

Black Widow

Having first appeared in Iron Man 2 back in 2010 it’s taken 11 years (with a pandemic delay) for Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow to finally get her own standalone film. The spotlight should firmly be on her, or so you would have thought, but for all its acrobatic female kick-ass baddery poor old Natasha Romanoff has to share that limelight...

The Tomorrow War Review

The Tomorrow War review

The Lego Movie filmmaker Chris McKay teams up with Chris Pratt on his latest generic sci-fi time travel, alien assassination actioneer that puts the fate of the world into the hands of a doting father. A two-headed popcorn filler that is part sentimental family fodder, part save humanity from the evil ancient aliens, it won’t be winning any awards...

Fast and Furious 9 Review

Fast and Furioys 9

Here we are, on the 20th anniversary of the release of the very first in the Fast and Furious franchise comes the ninth instalment.

The question is can a...

The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard Review

The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard Review

Selma Hayek, Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson return for more ludicrous, outlandish and foul-mouthed japery in the sequel to the 2017 action-comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard. Big on popcorn fodder but lacking in as many laughs as its predecessor, this explosive generic picture at least gives us an hour and ’40 minutes to switch off from the world and lose...

A Quiet Place 2 Review

It’s been a long time coming, in fact, it’s just over a year since John Krasinski’s horror baby and sequel to the critical and audience acclaimed A Quiet Place was originally due to hit the big screen.

Rare Beasts Review

Rare Beasts

When you hear about Billie Piper’s Rare Beasts, you’ll also hear the term anti-rom-com banded about not far behind. Whilst this is, in fact, correct you’re also in for an incoherent storyline filled with neurotic women and despicable, wholly unlikeable male characters. Made for the Gen Z generation of timely conversation with a typically pretentious narrative, there are momentary...

Without Remorse Review

Without Remorse

Sicario 2 director Stefano Sollima teams up with Michael B. Jordan for the latest in franchise fodder inspired by Tom Clancy’s 1993 bestseller.

Chaos Walking Review

Chaos Walking

Filmmaker Doug Liman is back with a sci-fi YA adaptation that should have been firmly left on the bookshelf. A dull plodder where misogynistic men rule results in an empty husk of a story that should have kept its thoughts to itself. Set on a planet, colonised by human’s, every man is betrayed by the mere fact their thoughts are...

The Mauritanian Review

The Mauritanian

Award-winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald, best known for ‘The Last King of Scotland’ and the 2018 Whitney Houston documentary ‘Whitney’ returns to the big screen with the real-life story of Guantanamo Bay detainee Mohamedou Ould Salahi.

Coming 2 America Review

COMING 2 AMERICA

30 years after Eddie Murphy brought Prince Akeem of Zamunda to life in the classic comedy Coming To America, Murphy reprises the role in its long and highly anticipated sequel. A sequel that wants to desperately keep alive the royal remnants of the past, with a touch of feminism throw in for good measure, it’s the lazy script forgetting...

Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar Review

Barb and Star go to Vista Del Mar

Teaming up for the first time since Bridesmaids, Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo not only star but co-wrote this shipwreck of overblown drivel. A catastrophic comedy that would have been best cut down to a 20-minute sketch show, just so we don’t have to sit through the pain of Jamie Dornan’s excessive musical numbers for one.If ridiculous is what...

BLISS

You would have thought Director Mike Cahill would be the best qualified to bring a mind-bending sci-fi caper to life with the likes of ‘I’ Origins’ under his belt, but while trying to emulate the dizzying heights of the Matrix, Owen Wilson and Selma Hayek are left floating through the void of a derivative mess.Wilson takes on the role...

The Dig Review

The Dig

Don’t be fooled by the digging and the dirt, this Netflix feature is one of those rare hidden gems just waiting to be unearthed. Quintessentially English, full of charm and tenacity Ralph Fiennes and Carey Mulligan put in star performances in a story which wavers from its main focus for a bit of titillating forbidden romance.Set just before the...
