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 »

WHAT I LIKED: Damien Chazelle's 'Whiplash' made you so nervous you could burst, but the beauty of his 'La La Land' is that it manages to play with all of your emotions. I cried, I felt empathetic for the leads, I felt reflective, but most of all I... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: I thought Whiplash would be a great drama with awesome music, but nothing prepared me for what I actually experienced here. Yes at his mere age, Damien Chazelle managed to deliver something as raw, intense and brutal as I've ever see... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: There's no doubt 'Layer Cake' is a clever film in many ways - primarily because the story it's based on has a whole set of interesting messages and well-constructed plots, but also because it's brought to life in an artistic and exci... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: One of the best in the series, 'License to kill' sees Dalton settle into the role to bring an excellent performance with the right levels of grit and charm. Match that with one of the best protagonists, a gritty revenge plot and some... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: All the explaining I could do about what makes 'Hidden Figures' so appealing can simply be personified by the film's gorgeous score. A ballsy yet successful balance between the wonder and beauty of Hans Zimmer and the hope and lightn... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: I had high hopes for this film after the brilliance of 'Bourne Identity' and largely it succeeds where the last did; bringing a gritty tone and plenty of exciting action right from the off. This time around though, the plot is far mo... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Watching 'The Great Gatsby' is like watching a brilliant West-End pantomime, as it has you grinning from ear-to-ear yet strangely hooked in the world and story too. That's made possible by the simple brilliance of its mystery and rom... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: A gritty revenge idea was certainly the right way to go after 'Casino Royale,' as Bond's arc seems to naturally evolve here. Yes once again, the character-story in 'Quantum of Solace' is the strongest part of the film, as it plays no... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: It's a widely-accepted fact that Alfonso Cuaron's 'The Prisoner of Azkaban' is a huge step-up after its two predecessors, and I most definitely agree, as it not only has a higher-stakes story, but it also feels genuinely cinematic fo... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Doug Liman's 'The Bourne Identity,' doesn't generally get the same credit that Paul Greengrass' slightly more political franchise efforts often do, but in actual fact this is where the revolutionary stylistic approach really came fro... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The now-called 'Cornetto trilogy' concludes to the standard of 'Shuan of the Dead' and then some; bringing even more depth than we saw in the first installment. This is probably Wright's most layered and intellegent film of all actua... Read the full review »
