WHAT I LIKED: Paul Greengrass' 'United 93,' is a film that recreates an extremely horrifying scenario in a very matter-of-fact way - showing this part of 9/11 from a number of perspectives in a way that portrays the terror perfectly. Indeed in a w... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: I watched Martin Campbell's 'The Foreigner,' expecting a fairly weightless, run-of-the-mill action movie, but this is actually a rather admirable political thriller about the remaining scars left by the Northern Irish conflicts and t... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: By the start of 'Rocky III,' the working-class hero Rocky Balboa has turned into the civil, commercialised figure of his original opponent, but when a new challenge comes his way, he's forced to confront the fear that his win was as... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The only reason that Peter Jackson's first faithful recreation of the Lord of The Rings books successfully engages you for almost four hours is that it does a great job of building multiple characters that you care about so that the... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Ben Affleck's directorial debut 'Gone Baby Gone,' is a well-constructed thriller with a great twisty plot and an unusual and interesting moral question surrounding its conclusion. What's most notable however is that that's only made... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Gillian Flynn and David Fincher's 'Gone Girl,' is one of those films that stays with you for days, and - beyond its surprising twists and turns - the reason for that is the startling way that it deals with its prevalent social themes... Read the full review »

Widows (2018)

Widows (2018)

7 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: On a literal level, Steve McQueen and Gillian Flynn's 'Widows,' is a film about four women planning a heist after their criminal husbands get killed, but it's also a film about the constructs of power, deprivation and racial/genderal... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars,' is literally just an extra-long Clone Wars episode that preceded the rest, and as someone who rather loves the subsequent series, I have to say that's no bad thing as far as I'm concerned. Why? Well what... Read the full review »
