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 »

WHAT I LIKED: After proving itself with gritty on-the-ground action and espionage excitement, the Bourne franchise returns to impress by balancing the focus both on Bourne (as in the first installment), and on the corrupt CIA. The Bourne half is d... Read the full review »

Fences (2016)

Fences (2016)

10 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: 'Fences' is, without doubt, one of my favourite films of 2017, as it packs more raw, emotional weight and sheer, gut-punching gravitas than virtually anything I've seen all year. Now agreeably it's not the most 'cinematic' production... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: There are a number of reasons why Richard Curtis' 'About Time,' always has me so emotionally engaged and affected, and why it easily winds up as one of my personal favourite films of all time. First of all, and perhaps most important... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: I don't think you can truly appreciate how different and innovative 'Arrival' is until you see it, because literally everything here is entirely fresh and unexpected, and delves underneath everything we think we know. For a start, th... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Sometimes I can see why a film I like isn't well received, but frankly the reaction to 'X-Men: Apocalypse' has me stumped. As far as I'm concerned, in the absence of messy set-ups and timeline conformity, this is one of the best movi... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Finding Nemo' is one of those films that just represents very simple, very effective story-telling that works extremelly well. The adventure is easy but highly engaging because the father-son relationship is well developed, the mean... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The characters are well realised for sure, and the animation itself is very good indeed. WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Despite all, the film actually offers very little in terms of plot, pace, excitement or interesting dialogue to keep childre... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The animation is great, and the characters are well developed. All this allows 'Happy feet' to dance with some great themes and still make it appeal to the whole family. WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Having said that, the plot is extremelly th... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The real marvel of 'Catch me if you Can' is most definitely its story, as the sheer madness of what is supposedly truth is enough to boggle the mind. Of course with that in place it would be very easy to let its engagement slip, but... Read the full review »
