WHAT I LIKED: Spielberg said it himself; this is the most honest comic book movie out there, because it truly knows what it is. I thought it would be funny and quirky, but James Gunn manages to exceed all my expectations by building something genu... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Something that Moore's latest Bonds sadly lacked; Timothy Dalton brings an edge to his performance that radiates throughout the entire movie. The result is a film that's actually one of the most sophisticated in the series, where we... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Now that we know everything about these characters and this world it's a rather different experience watching George Lucas' original 'Star Wars,' but it's important to remember that this film is actually one steeped in mystery. Yes f... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: This series just seems to get more thoughtful and thematic as it progresses, and in a way, ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2’ is the perfect accumulation of all of that as it’s much slower and gives real time to exploring... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The first hour of 'Batman v Superman' is pretty great; featuring some nice action sequences, some iconic moments and a whole host of truly excellent visual effects and sound work from Hans Zimmer. It also explores some interesting ph... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The characterisation and grittiness are what makes this film more exciting than certain Moore era Bonds, but it's Brosnan's intense performance that brings those elements slightly above the tone of Tim Dalton. Match these tropes with... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: '10 Things I Hate About You' is actually a lot of fun because it doesn't take itself too seriously and it almost goes so far down the comedy route that it feels more like a satire of itself. Yes whilst some of the characters and stor... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Without a shadow of a doubt the thing that this film does best is to establish a brand new set of brilliantly quirky characters in a way that makes it feel like you know and understand them already, and that's really no mean feat des... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Tomorrow Never Dies has all the great elements of it's predecessor, but it's a big step up because we actually get to see this version of Bond properly developed, to the extent where he feels like a real human as opposed to a meaning... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: You may be expecting a run-off-the-mill action movie, and what you get with 'Jack Reacher,' is certainly an element of that, but also a far more sophisticated and surprisingly clever crime-film underneath. Indeed firstly this is genu... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Like many of his subsequent projects, the entirety of Danny Boyle's 'Shallow Grave' drives for the darkest possible humour in satirically exploring the consequences of reckless actions, and what's always surprising is that the humour... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: On the one hand, Richard Curtis' directorial debut 'Love Actually,' is everything you could have expected from the guy who wrote 'Four Weddings and a Funeral,' but at the same time it's also thankfully a very well-directed film, and... Read the full review »
