Up (2009)

Up (2009)

8 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: 'Up' is clearly a lot of fun, but it is also universally recognised as Pixar's saddest film, and it most definitely is. Yes the themes of age and family run so strongly through the beautiful narrative and characters here that the fil... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: There's no denying it; stylistically, 'John Wick' is one of the coolest in its game, as it packs some if the best world-building, cinematography and action choreography that this kind kind of film could ever offer. Honestly, not a ha... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: On the one hand, 'Get Out' is undoubtedly a very gripping and engaging thriller indeed, but what really makes it something special is its thematic layers. Yes, Jordan Peele isn't aiming for a straight genre-piece here at all as the... Read the full review »

Official FilmFed Review
'Alien: Covenant' is a film with a lot on its plate. For starters it needs to answer the questions posed by its overambitious amuse-bouche 'Prometheus (2012),' and secondly it needs to satisfy everyone's apparent hunger for horror and character de... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Perhaps unsurprisingly with Pixar at the wheel, 'Monsters University' does manage to capture much of the magic of its predecessor, as it still packs all the charm and detail you'd expect, as well as many of the characters you grew to... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Monsters Inc' is yet another example of innovative, smart and fun storytelling from Pixar that truly cemented their success and showed the far reaches of animation in all its glory. In fact, I'm far from alone in putting this film r... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar,' manages to evoke a feeling that no other film has ever got close to; a genuinely overwhelming mix of pure awe, fear, touched emotion and reflective beauty all rolled into one incredible package. Fo... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Make no mistake, 'The 100 Year Old Man who Climbed out of the Window and Disappeared,' is as much an off-the-wall comedy as its ridiculous title suggests, however it can equally be said that - like with all good comedies - there's a... Read the full review »

Looper (2012)

Looper (2012)

8 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: Rian Johnson's 'Looper' is a startlingly fresh, properly original and genuinely brave film made by a force of thoroughly creative people all driving to test the boundaries of blockbuster cinema, but it is also a film with a clear gro... Read the full review »

Skyfall (2012)

Skyfall (2012)

10 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: A Sam Mendes directed Bond movie was always an exciting and intriguing prospect, but what he did with 'Skyfall,' was properly brilliant and exceeded everyone's expectations, and the final product actually amounts to a film that's not... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: When someone tells me that I don't like Hollywood rom-coms, to contradict them I either reference Richard Curtis, or Paul Feig and his work on this film. Yes 'Bridesmaids' is not only a properly funny and well-constructed romance/com... Read the full review »

Who is the best director working today?

Fincher is definitely up there for me - I'm a big fan of Sam Mendes' work too, and Nolan of course!! View the full reply »

WHAT I LIKED: It can at least be said for 'Iron Man 2' that they did choose an interesting direction for Tony Stark's character on paper, as seeing him struggle with his newfound responsibility and the mataphor of the suit literally poisoning him... Read the full review »
