WHAT I LIKED: 'Sucker Punch,' is slightly appealing because of how outwardly silly it is compared to some of Snyder's more self-serious efforts, but mostly it serves to prove that Oscar Isaacs can make even the worst character in the world believa... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The most noteable and appealing thing about Kenneth Branagh's 'Murder on the Orient Express,' is that it's simply a beautiful cinematic experience that impresses ten-fold with its aesthetics and star-studded cast. Yes perhaps as it s... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 1974's 'Murder on the Orient Express' is a success because of the way in which its genius narrative unfolds and hooks you on every reveal, and that's partly of course down to Agatha Christie's story, but also Sidney Lumet's direction... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Unsurprisingly from Thomas Alfredson, 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' isn't your usual kind of modern spy/mystery, as it's a film where most of the intrigue and engagement comes across visually and through slow dialogue and nuanced perfo... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: On the one hand, with 'Watchmen,' you definitely have to admire Zack Snyder for getting this ambitious project made as well as for executing it in such a rich and stylish manor. Now by rich I don't mean hyper-intelligent, but it is d... Read the full review »

300 (2006)

300 (2006)

2 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: Weirdly, the general consensus around '300' is that it's just fluffy and weightless "fun," but clearly the bloody single-track narrative here is only a device for visual and thematic portrayal rather than anything else. Indeed on tha... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 2004's 'Dawn of the Dead' really is a lesson in how a re-make can be done successfully, as director Zack Snyder manages to create a film that uses elements from the original, but that most of all stands brilliantly on its own two fee... Read the full review »

It’s more world-ending stuff from the MCU as the latest entry follows Thor battling to save Asgard from the end of all things. How can Marvel stop all this collapsing under its own weight? New Zealand's Taika Waititi could well be the answer. Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: A cinema experience like this really is a rare thing, for 'Blade Runner 2049' is a film that slowly and brilliantly hooks and affects you and truly transports you to another world in a state of awe, intrigue and pure, undying attenti... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: No matter your pre-conceptions, there's simply no denying that 'The LEGO Batman Movie' is one properly intelligent and properly funny film that does satire and subject commentary as well as the best. Now agreeably, one has to have so... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang' marks writer Shane Black's directorial debut in a neo-noir buddy-cop spoof, and when you think about it even if this idea seemed somewhat risky at the time, this guy really is a natural fit for it as his usual a... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,' is a film all about building world, and on that front it most definitely succeeds as an all-consuming atmosphere and fantastical timely setting are built perfectly by the score, set-design a... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Beyond anything else what makes 'Highlander' the viable cult classic that it is is undoubtedly its self-aware humour, as this is a film that will genuinely have you smirking from start to finish. Yes because it delivers its ridiculou... Read the full review »
