Films you don't like that everybody else loves.

@FILM I liked Argo but I agree, it's not as incredible as it was made out to be. For me, The Shining, Sicario, Layer Cake, Everybody Wants Some, Hacksaw Ridge and even John Wick - despite their general acclaim - are all films that immediately spri... View the full reply »

Lucy (2014)

Lucy (2014)

6 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: The bottom line is that 'Lucy' is a film all about its themes, as it explores some great concepts really rather intricately, yet the beauty of it is that it does so with a fairly light touch. Yes thankfully Luc Besson doesn't take th... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Prometheus' is without doubt the most ambitious film in the Alien trilogy, as it properly delves into some very interesting themes and plants numerous seeds whilst advancing hugely in visual design too. Yes it really feels like Ridl... Read the full review »

Heading Underground: A Deeper Look at Skyfall and Spectre.

Sam Mendes, one of my favourite directors working today, is a man whose films generally pack a whole lot more than first meets the eye, and they consequently leave lots of room for... Read the full blog post »

WHAT I LIKED: Overall, 'Jack Reacher: Never go Back' is an enjoyable and satisfying sequel as it aims to deliver on the highs, and develop the lows of its fun predecessor. That's largely a success too, as some great new female characters (who set... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Few films out there make me feel quite as good and down-right happy as '21 Jump Street' does, and for that it truly earns a spot right up there with my favourite comedies of all time. Seriously, the humour here is absolutely golden -... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: In some moments, 'Prisoners' is one of the grittiest, most frightening psychological thrillers I've ever seen, as it hooks you and places you in one of the most desperate and difficult scenarios imaginable. What hooks you though is a... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Guy Ritchie's first Sherlock Holmes was a bit of a surprise, and strangely enough, his second attempt is too. Now what it does so successfully is to update the great aspects of its predecessor's style in a slicker manor to deliver an... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Handing the keys for the world's greatest detective to Guy Ritchie seemed rather like the kind of thing you'd do after a few too many beers down your local Yorkshire pub, but the final result is an unquestionably fresh and surprising... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: There's no doubt that Titanic is a properly classic Hollywood blockbuster - another film made by James Cameron because it's what he wanted, and what he wanted alone. Was his vision a good one here? Well its boldness is enough to trul... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople' is one of the most delightful and humbling movie experiences out there, as its overall aims, and the charm with which it's all dealt, strips your own feelings of joy right back to their cores. Yes in build... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Seemingly obsessed with making films that mostly serve as commentaries on the human condition and its societies, Stanley Kubrick is generally a very theatrical, comedic and thematic filmmaker, so you may think he's a far cry from the... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: It's not often that a film makes you smile as much as 'Man from UNCLE' does, but seeing Guy Ritchie's newly refined style in this world will have your face permanently morphed from start to finish. Yes frankly I can't think of a bett... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: In balancing the source traditions with some genuine new-found greatness, I personally think this film is pretty close to the very best version of a slightly Hollywood 'Ghost in the Shell' that we could ever get. Yes for a start, it... Read the full review »
