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: '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)

6 / 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: Sequels are hard things to get right - especially when their predecessors are so brilliant - but 'Toy Story 2,' works as a textbook example as it develops on the original whilst delivering an even better and more engaging rollercoast... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Who knew a film about some talking toys could be so great? Well it seems strange to imagine a world without the continuous innovative brilliance of Pixar now, but when 'Toy Story' graced our screens back in 1995 it was a real surpris... 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 »

WHAT I LIKED: Two words: Tom Hanks. Yes this is arguably the legend's best performance, and it just goes to show what talent he has in the fact that he can literally hold an entire movie on his own. The character he builds is really meaningful, an... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Trainspotting' really deserved to be the breakthrough that it was for Danny Boyle, as it takes the well-established style and black humour of his slightly hollow 'Shallow Grave' and puts it against a script with some grounding in ha... Read the full review »

Logan (2017)

Logan (2017)

10 / 10
After a comic book film, it's rare to leave the cinema in silence surrounded by fellow movie-goers with tissues held to their faces, but that's exactly the kind of effect something as refreshingly hard-hitting as Logan (2017) has. In fact this bar... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: There’s very few films out there that successfully engage you in what is effectively the entire life story of one man, but ‘Forrest Gump’s’ magnificent charm and Tom Hanks’ unsurprisingly magnetic performance is what makes... Read the full review »

Lion (2016)

Lion (2016)

7 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: Outside of it's amazing cinematography and score - Lion's true story is probably its greatest strength, as it's frankly amazing to consider the journey of this young man and how desperate he must feel. That's particularly the case in... Read the full review »
