WHAT I LIKED: Like his 'John Wick,' David Leitch's 'Atomic Blonde' is an action film all about the cool factor, but the layers here are actually very different indeed. Yes for one this is a far grittier film than you might expect as whilst all the... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Bringing 'Fifty Shades of Grey' to the big screen was always going to be a horribly unpleasant task, and talking about the solace to be found within Sam Taylor-Johnson's final product is only really fruitful if you talk about what th... Read the full review »

Raw (2017)

Raw (2017)

7 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: It would seem that those who like their films rare have a real soft spot for 'Raw,' as it is undoubtedly a very uncommon beast - a thematically ambitious and different horror film that's trying to be more than the genre standard thin... Read the full review »

Thief (1981)

Thief (1981)

7 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: What's most striking about Michael Mann's theatrical debut 'Thief' is what an incredibly confident and assured piece of film it really is. Yes the way that his beautiful visuals and incredible use of music build such a consistent dys... Read the full review »

Taken (2008)

Taken (2008)

9 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: I don't care what people say, 'Taken' is the quintessential Liam Neeson thriller, and it will always be a film I greatly enjoy. Yes for one the premise is just brilliant, and whilst many engage with the emotional seeds of the likes o... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Really all that keeps you locked into 'Gangster Squad' is its incredible cast, as virtually all of these huge stars bring their A-games and show that you do often get what you pay for when it comes to star-power. On that note, it is... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Insomnia' is yet another gut-punching thriller from Christopher Nolan, but it also serves to show that it's not just narrative structure that makes this director such a successful master of tension. Yes unlike in 'Following,' or 'Me... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: A debut directorial piece is a great place to go to see the seeds of interest and experimentation that lead to later work, and for Christopher Nolan's 'Following' one can definitely identify the roots of elements we got in 'Memento,'... Read the full review »
