WHAT I LIKED: Tonally, few films embody the vision of their respective creators as much as 'Pulp Fiction' does, but this thing just bleeds Tarantino through every single goddamn element. Yes for a start, it's an unsurprisingly bold and self-assure... Read the full review »

I'm really not a fan of the trailer - but hopefully it's a case of bad trailer and good movie. I... Read the full comment »

X+Y (2015)

9 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: 'x+y,' (or 'A Beautiful Young Mind' as it's known in the US) is simply one beautiful and emotionally engaging character study that will have you laughing, crying, tensing and smiling throughout. Few movies capture the magic of so man... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: A third sequel was always going to be hard to get right, but what makes 'Toy Story 3' work is that they mostly steer it in an entirely new direction. Yes whilst 2 upped the anti a little bit, this one delves darker and acts bolder th... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: First and foremost, what makes 'Godzilla' is the set pieces, as they're actually really unique and undoubtedly receive great direction from Mr Gareth Edwards. Indeed there's a rare tangiability and an unusual sense of scale here, whi... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Saving Private Ryan' really is one of the best war films out there, and that's because in the same gut-punching, tear-jerking breath, it's equally an attempt at an anti-war film. Yes, in another stroke of assurance, Spielberg manage... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: On the one hand, 'Sicario' is one of the most tightly directed thrillers I've ever seen, as Denis Villenuive steers each set piece and scene with such a tight grip and strong punch that it grabs hold of your stomach and twists it int... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'The Lady in the Van' is certainly a creative cinematic adaptation of Alan Bennett's story, but it's this humble, humorous foundation that's by far the winning part of the formula here. Yes the story we find ourselves going on is one... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: There are undoubtedly moments in this film that work, and some of those come from the further development of our lead characters. Yes Belle and the Beast do get a more layered background here, and that adds to the story and builds so... Read the full review »

Avatar (2009)

Avatar (2009)

7 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: There's no doubt a hat must be tipped to James Cameron for delivering something as original yet wholely well-realised as this. Yes 'Avatar's' incredible world-building (aided by ground-breaking visual effects) and in-depth characters... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Wall-E' really is a bit of a departure from the usual Pixar formula, in that it tackles its message far more head on and does so in a way that will perhaps make even its youngest audience members consider something more than what's... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Beauty and the Beast' is the very epitome of what a Disney movie is to me - a confidently simple yet relentlessly charming film that plays with the happier side of your emotions from start to finish. Yes every time I stick this thin... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Like any great sequel should, but frankly rarely does, 'Toy Story 2' re-captures the magic of the first film whilst adding to it in lots of new and exciting ways. Primarily, this is thanks to the new plot which is far more 'high-stak... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Who knew a story about some talking toys could be so great? Well it seems strange to imagine a world without the creative innovation of Pixar now, but when 'Toy Story' graced our screens back in 1995, this film was an extremelly fres... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Technically, aesthetically and visually, 'Life of Pi' is pretty damn breathtaking. That's thanks to some incredible technical innovation, some amazing cinematography, and some great performances to back it all up. WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:... Read the full review »
