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 »

WHAT I LIKED: There are some amusing moments in James Bond spoof 'Johnny English,' and most of those come from the comedic ability of the brilliant Rowan Atkinson, who - despite being heavily restrained by the film around him - does shine occasion... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Few were crying out for a sequel to the the rather lackluster and unfunny 'Johnny English,' but as far as I'm concerned this premise still has potential, and frankly the second ends up doing a far better job with it - though not nece... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Much like with 'Iron Man' just before it, the thing that works about Marvel's 'The Incredible Hulk' is the character stuff, as there are some attempts here to make you care about this Bruce Banner. Edward Norton delivers a great perf... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: An innocent and beautiful love story; 'Love, Rosie' mostly succeeds in building two characters with real believable chemistry to hook you into the whole experience. This is thanks to a fairly well-built plot, as well as two sparkling... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Despite its many flaws, George Lucas' 'The Phantom Menace,' does genuinely work at times, as there is some engaging character stuff here, and some interesting extensions to the lore and the world too. Yes on the one hand we get to se... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: George Lucas' 'Attack of The Clones,' is mostly an improvement over its disappointing predecessor, and that's largely because the character stuff is more interesting this time around. Yes here we get to see the precarious Jedi Anakin... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Lucas knows what he wants here - 'Revenge of the Sith' has much more direction thanks to a plot that ties everything up really well. It's also very dark, thanks to some exciting characterisation and the music that adds so much to thi... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: An epic and brooding follow-up to George Lucas' mysterious and enchanting 'Star Wars,' 'The Empire Strikes Back,' is a film that takes the delicately planted questions of the first film and answers them in bold and surprising ways to... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Return of the Jedi,' is arguably the most interesting original Star Wars movie to discuss, as whilst it's not necessarily as sophisticated as its predecessors, it's definitely the most spiritually-minded of the three and equally rou... Read the full review »

Argo (2012)

Argo (2012)

8 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: We knew by this point that Ben Affleck can both act and direct to an incredible standard, but he still manages to surprise us with every great turn he makes. This time, he pulled out all the stops and as a result 'Argo' is one of the... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: J.J. Abrams' 'Super8' is pretty much Spielberg on drugs, and I mean that in the best possible way. It's got all the emotion and heart in all the right places and is a family drama at it's core, but it also offsets any chance of that... Read the full review »

2017 Academy Awards (Oscars)

@Chris I think I agree with most of yours, but for best actor I think there are better choices, and the animations should be Zootopia for me!! View the full reply »

WHAT I LIKED: Well I think it's safe to say Garfield deserved that nomination, as this guy delivers one heck of a performance as this extremely admirable hero. Hacksaw Ridge is also a film that achieves technically in many ways too - with excellen... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: X-Men: Days of Future past is genious; but mostly it sticks out because the story makes for previously impossible character development that surprisingly rounds out these younger versions to a level of greater depth and interest. It'... Read the full review »
