WHAT I LIKED: After years since the original trilogy, J.J. Abrams' 'The Force Awakens,' debuted amongst unprecedented anticipation from devoted fans like myself who view this franchise as a somewhat sacred entity, and what this film does so perfec... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'The Danish Girl' tells the fascinating true story of the world's first transgender man, and first and foremost what makes the film is that that immediately serves as a very powerful narrative. It unlocks the examinations of identity... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Alfonso Cuaron's 'Gravity,' offers a rather unique and all-consuming experience as it makes you feel awe, tension, excitement and bewildered confusion all at the same time by absorbing you into the world (or rather out of it) to the... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: It's strange to think now, but back in 2008, 'Iron Man' saw a brand-new Marvel Studios put all of its eggs into one very fragile basket with an unknown superhero origin story fronted by the risky Robert Downey Jr and unknown director... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: For a movie to just while away a couple of hours to, you could do much worse than 'The Duff.' Yes there's just enough fun humour, character development and good acting to keep you in your seat that generally amounts to a fairly enjoy... Read the full review »

X-Men (2000)

WHAT I LIKED: How do you introduce multiple fantasy characters in one movie, who's relationships and experiences all feel real? Well Bryan Singer seems to know how, and that's what makes 'X-Men' such a big success. Yes thanks to his direction and... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: A buddy-cop spoof with Mellissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock directed by 'Bridesmaid's Paul Feig? You know the kind of thing you're getting with 'The Heat,' but frankly I like most of Feig's work more than most and don't think it dese... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Have you ever thought to yourself what it would be like if you were frozen from the effects of ageing when you were just 26? Well, me neither, but 'Age of Adeline's central concept raises some interesting questions and situations to... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The sole appeal of ‘Now You See Me,’ really lies with its style as the only thing that keeps your eyes on the screen is the indulgence and dazzling shine of what’s on display. That partly comes from the visuals of course, but a... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: It's not all as risky and funny as it seems to think, and its story isn't as revolutionary as the humour might have you believe either, but for some reason 'Deadpool,' is still thoroughly engaging and appealing entertainment, and in... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: What's amusing about the TV show upon which 'The Inbetweeners Movie,' is based is not that we watch with pity in vague disgust as a group of teenage boys dick around, it's how that unlocks some commentary on the ridiculous ways that... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Christopher McQuarrie's 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation,' largely carries on in a similar vain from its immediate predecessor as it doesn't take itself overly seriously and packs plenty of bombastic set-pieces, but where it diffe... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Right from the start of J.J. Abrams' cinematic debut 'Mission: Impossible III,' it becomes apparent that it's the only real blip on its franchise radar as it immediately marks itself as a far darker, more serious and emotionally inte... Read the full review »
