Skyscraper Review

The world’s tallest building, a towering inferno, and Dwayne Johnson’s relentless fight to save his family. What more could you want from a Friday night mind-numbing popcorn movie? Rawson Marshall Thurber’s venture into the vertigo-inducing thriller delivers just that, but there is a sense of déjà vu here and not even Johnson’s charisma can spark a flame of excitement into this CGI blaze.Johnson’s Will Sawyer is a former Soldier and FBI hostage...

Molly Moon and the Incredible Book of Hypnotism Review

As a Film Critic when reviewing movies aimed at a completely different demographic to me, it is important to always keep in mind the audience that is being targeted. Thankfully, when it comes to genres, I am as comfortable sobbing over Leonardo Di Caprio drowning in Titanic, as I am fist pumping the air after an Arnold Schwarzenegger pun. However...

Daddy’s Home 2 Review

Christmas is looming, for Hollywood there’s no better time to churn out the inane sequel with a virtually unoriginal transparent plot repeating itself, lacking in intelligent humour just to get a few bums on seats and at the same time wasting any talent their big named cast may have. What we have here is yet another lazy attempt at...

Allied Review

Robert Zemeckis has brought us some cinematic classics over the years from Back To the Future to Forest Gump, so expectation may be high for his wartime spy thriller Allied with Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard at the helm. So it pains to say that this transportation into World War II has less fizzle than an unexploded bomb. Brad Pitt...

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword Review

It’s unceremoniously tanked in the States, so what kind of reception can Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword expect as it arrives this week?Do you know your Uther Pendragons from your Mordred's?  If King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword is anything to go by, director Guy Ritchie certainly doesn’t.  Not that it’s prevented him from making his...

Nanny Culture Review

Nanny Culture is a documentary that tells the story of a British Nanny (Julie C. Mcilvenny) who moves to the United Arab Emirates to look after the children of a wealthy family. Set up’s for fish out of water tales don’t come much better than this; the potential is squandered in spectacular fashion however due to a number of bizarre...

Paranoid DVD Review

Bill Gallagher’s Paranoid aims to reach higher than the local ‘whodunnit’ of British detective dramas and focuses instead on treachery and deception on a global scale; Whether this works for the better is a case to be argued. Following the theme of the title, paranoia looms large and threads itself throughout the narrative, linking to a big message that never...

Army of One DVD Review

When dealing with a Nicholas-Cage-starring film, there’s a pretty equal chance of it being ingenious or being preposterous. Unfortunately, Army of One sits so solidly in the mundane that it doesn’t deliver what every person watching a Nicholas Cage film seeks: entertainment. Based on the real story of a man on a mission, Cage stars as Gary Faulkner, a seemingly slightly...

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back Review

Back in 2012, the decision to cast Hollywood high-flyer Tom Cruise as towering and built ex-army major Jack Reacher wasn’t met with unanimous praise. At 5 ft 7, Cruise certainly doesn’t reach the heights of 6 ft 5 Jack Reacher. But the author of the current 21 book spanning novel series featuring the character, Lee Child, hinted that the casting...

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...

Gangsters, Gamblers and Geezers Review

The urban comedy is surprisingly sparse in the market with Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels & Snatch at the forefront. Others are parodies such as Anuvahood and Ali G which have become cult classics. However, none of these big names have been released in the past 5 years.Gangsters, Gamblers and Geezers advertise everything essential for a top...

Marauders Review

In an ideal world, every movie would start with at least a wee spark of creativity.  But we don’t live in an ideal world – and, in case we need a reminder, there’s Marauders …… Working out where the original idea for the film came from is a thankless task because it looks more likely that there wasn’t one in the...

A Warrior’s Tale Review.

Coming from the maker’s of The Lion King II Simba’s Pride and National Treasure Book of Secrets and starring the voices of Whoopi Goldberg, Joe Pesci, Sharon Stone and Milla Jovovich, A Warriors Tale hits an extremely bum note considering the talent it has behind. Sickly Sweet and Cringe worthy are the best way to describe this poorly made...

The Book of Henry Review

Six months into 2017 and the Razzies look set to have a clear winner for worst movie of 2017 come award season; The Book of Henry more than deserves the title for its trudging baffling plot which spirals into a detached and directional cesspit of incoherent confusion.You’d be forgiven for thinking this was yet another child genius movie, and...

Norm of the North Review – An overwhelmingly dull animation that should have stayed on the cutting room floor.

As animations go, Norm of the North tries way too hard to be cute and fails miserable as it blunders its way to the end credits where at this point you’ll be gauging your eyes out and wishing for a quick death. Norm of the North is a cute talking Polar Bear (Voice of Rob Schneider), who at an early...

Space Jam: A New Legacy Review

Space Jam A New Legacy

25 years after the original Space Jam garnered a generation of fans with Basketball legend Michael Jordan and his antics with the classic loony tunes comes its follow-up. Hoping to provide that same sense of joy, relay the importance of teamwork and a message to parents to let your kids be whoever they want to be – whilst these are...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of The Shadows Review

One thing is for certain when it comes to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of the Shadows; it’s not about making a movie full of entertainment and gusto than making a movie as it’s a sure fire way of making a large amount of cash from the disillusioned kids of today. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of the Shadows is...
