WHAT I LIKED: The best way to describe the feeling you get when watching 'Ghost in the Shell' is frankly a deep-routed unease, but also a definite sense of wonder - and those two things are a very rare and very effective combination. First off, th... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: ET is one of Spielberg's ultimate gems - a timeless story about a lost alien stumbling upon a group of kids who form a friendship with him and help him get home. It's a brilliant concept, but mostly it's charming because it has such... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Horrors come in many shapes and sizes, but the best movies put the viewer in the characters' shoes and allow them to understand and relate to the horrors that are on display. John Carpenter's 'The Thing' succeeds there in a number of... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Cheaper by the Dozen' is a pretty fun movie that will occasionally produce some giggles, but will always produce a smile. Yes the appeal of this so-called comedy can more so be found in the endearing characterisation and simple mess... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: After a more serious approach from Alfonso Cuaron, Mike Newell largely gave us a far smaller, more charming coming-of-age adventure with 'The Goblet of Fire' where the mystery and stakes just bubble under the surface until the final... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Much like Tarantino's debut feature 'Reservoir Dogs,' 'Pulp Fiction' is appealing because of its unmistakeably flippant style, but what elevates this even further here is the film's snappy narrative structure, the strength of its the... 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: It's not often that you find a series where each installment is better than the previous, but 'Toy Story 3,' is undoubtedly the best of its bunch as it's easily the most emotionally engaging, thematically relevant and clever movie of... 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: '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)

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 »
