Moana Review

Disney seems to have struck gold with the diverse and empowering Moana, shining a light not only on Polynesian culture but also portraying its female protagonist as a feisty, adventurous and inquisitive girl that doesn’t fall under the stereotypical princess persona. Who better to capture the Disney magic than veteran  legendary directors John Musker and Ron Clements, the men behind...

The Rape of Recy Taylor Review

American history is shrouded in hateful racist issues, for years many minorities were subjected to brutality that is off-the-charts unfathomable. Yet, in 2018, the so-called great, progressive nation is seeing a revival in its narrow thinking bubbling to the surface like an acidic bail. Nancy Buirski’s documentary, The Rape of Recy Taylor, couldn’t be any timelier as the director...

Vice Review

Filled to the brim with eye-opening power plays delivered with excellence.  It’s a Vice that just kept on giving with frequently witty scenarios and liberal intelligence.

Leave No Trace Review

It’s been eight years since director Debra Granik presented Jennifer Lawrence in Winter’s Bone. With only two documentaries in that time, the filmmaker embarks on a delicately emotional feature with Leave No Trace; an adaptation of the novel My Abandonment by Peter Rock.Going back to nature and the fundamentals of parenthood, Granik produces a nuanced story of self-imposed homelessness; where one army vet Father’s love to protect his daughter from...

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...

Mission: Impossible – Fallout Review

There is absolutely no doubt as to why Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible is the strongest franchise Hollywood has to offer. In a world where CGI rules the roost, Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie perform their high aerial stunts in the real world. Delivering a thrilling ride proving every mission they undertake is certainly possible whilst not scrimping on its entertainment value.Events escalate no sooner as the picture opens; Ethan (Cruise) and his merry men, Simon Pegg’s Benji and the man-made wall,...

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...

Spider-Man: Far From Home Review

Breezy and light-hearted with some epic action pieces, it's a visual kaleidoscope that will send 'Peter Tingles' down your spine.

A Private War Review

Transfixing, uncompromisingly visceral and tonally raw, Heineman’s A Private War is a powerfully traumatic memoir.

Matthew Heineman’s latest delves into that very subject...

Hood has kept Eye in the Sky pretty simply by keeping...

Spider-man: Into The Spider-Verse Review

All we needed was another Spider-Man movie... or so we thought. After losing count on how many time’s Peter Parker stories can be told for the modern audience, The Lego Movie’s Phil Lord and Chris Miller have injected a delightful originality to the animated story of Miles Morales’s incarnation of Spidey that could have spouted the same old origin...

A Quiet Passion Review

The last thing you would come to expect from a period biopic would be anything but quirky but Terence Davies, A Quiet Passion, the story of the 19th century American poet Emily Dickenson, revels in a slightly left of centre fascinating drama of a women trapped in an era that wasn’t quite ready for her individualism and feminine strength.If...

All the Money in the World Review

If you are not already aware of Ridley Scott’s, based on a true story, All The Money in the World about the kidnapping of Oil Tycoon and Billionaire J.P.

Bastille Day Review – Idris Elba kicks some serious ass.

If Idris Elba hadn’t made a strong enough case to be a contender to take over the reins from Daniel Craig as Bond then his kick ass, slick fight scenes and his deadpan face in Bastille Day surely has to put him right at the top of the list for the most prestigious role an actor could hope for....

Midnight Special Review – A Creeping Chase Story which will Transport you to another world.

The Question that comes to mind with Midnight Special is what genre of film can we fit this into, Is it Sci-Fi or is it a mystery thriller? What isn’t in question is how extremely good this tale of mystery, family protection and just so happens to be a chase movie really is. From the moment the Midnight Special opens...

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...

Toy Story 4 Review

Woody and co will make you heartily smile in the heartfelt and wholesome fourth outing. For years, the Toy Story franchise has been a much-loved saga for audiences young and old.

The Weekend Review

Films suffer from a lot of stereotyping, even more so in comedies. As you refine the genre and go from British comedies then focus on urban British comedies, it means there are fewer films on offer to break this practice. So when something comes along that seems to have really paid attention to how real young people act, behave, talk,...
