WHAT I LIKED: There's no two ways about it; David Fincher's 'Fight Club' is absolute genius, and if nothing else it's just brilliant to see a big movie this clever and ambitious make it to the silver screen. After all, its intelligence is undoubte... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The joyous simplicity and heart that bleeds from "My Life as a Zucchini's" mere 66 minutes really is astounding, and I for one am confident in putting it right up there with the best of the year so far as a result. Yes this is, witho... Read the full review »

Forget the usual pressures a summer blockbuster has to contend with; 'Wonder Woman' not only has to deliver as the first proper female-lead Superhero film; it also has to redeem an entire franchise that's arguably falling apart. Enter director Pat... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Weirdly enough, I never felt the undying love that everyone else had for the first John Wick, and consequently I had equally reserved expectations going into its sequel; 'John Wick Chapter 2.' What I got here though was actually a ra... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: I'm very proud of the fact we Brits know how to make a good "Power to the People" film, and nowhere is that more evident than where 'Made in Dagenham' is concerned. Yes the way it sticks its fingers up to the establishment is done wi... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: It's very easy when reviewing a classic such as this to simply gush about its contribution to cinema, but even when you view 'North by Northwest' as a film in its own right, it's still one of the greatest around. Why? Well it does so... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' really is everything that a summer blockbuster should be - fun, interesting, but mostly down-right engaging. Yes, what really makes this film the success it truly is is its characters; each of whom ho... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Dare I say it - probably the best way to describe the feeling you get from 'Inception' is the sense that director Christopher Nolan is letting his hair down a bit. Yes oddly enough, when compared to his other amazing filmography, it... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: I do certainly hold some love for 'Kong: Skull Island,' as it's a film sprinkled with more quirky and individual elements than you may expect from a blockbuster of this scale. Yes for one, the story is clearly crafted to explore a co... Read the full review »

Up (2009)

8 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: 'Up' is clearly a lot of fun, but it is also universally recognised as Pixar's saddest film, and it most definitely is. Yes the themes of age and family run so strongly through the beautiful narrative and characters here that the fil... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: There's no denying it; stylistically, 'John Wick' is one of the coolest in its game, as it packs some if the best world-building, cinematography and action choreography that this kind kind of film could ever offer. Honestly, not a ha... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: On the one hand, 'Get Out' is undoubtedly a very gripping and engaging thriller indeed, but what really makes it something special is its thematic layers. Yes, Jordan Peele isn't aiming for a straight genre-piece here at all as the... Read the full review »

Official FilmFed Review
'Alien: Covenant' is a film with a lot on its plate. For starters it needs to answer the questions posed by its overambitious amuse-bouche 'Prometheus (2012),' and secondly it needs to satisfy everyone's apparent hunger for horror and character de... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Perhaps unsurprisingly with Pixar at the wheel, 'Monsters University' does manage to capture much of the magic of its predecessor, as it still packs all the charm and detail you'd expect, as well as many of the characters you grew to... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Monsters Inc' is yet another example of innovative, smart and fun storytelling from Pixar that truly cemented their success and showed the far reaches of animation in all its glory. In fact, I'm far from alone in putting this film r... Read the full review »
