WHAT I LIKED: Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar,' manages to evoke a feeling that no other film has ever got close to; a genuinely overwhelming mix of pure awe, fear, touched emotion and reflective beauty all rolled into one incredible package. Fo... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Make no mistake, 'The 100 Year Old Man who Climbed out of the Window and Disappeared,' is as much an off-the-wall comedy as its ridiculous title suggests, however it can equally be said that - like with all good comedies - there's a... Read the full review »

Looper (2012)

Looper (2012)

8 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: Rian Johnson's 'Looper' is a startlingly fresh, properly original and genuinely brave film made by a force of thoroughly creative people all driving to test the boundaries of blockbuster cinema, but it is also a film with a clear gro... Read the full review »

Skyfall (2012)

Skyfall (2012)

10 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: A Sam Mendes directed Bond movie was always an exciting and intriguing prospect, but what he did with 'Skyfall,' was properly brilliant and exceeded everyone's expectations, and the final product actually amounts to a film that's not... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The main thing to note about this legendary thriller is the outstanding performances and characterisation, as this incredible cast and a great script bring all the madness to life to such an exciting degree. This allows you to delve... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: When someone tells me that I don't like Hollywood rom-coms, to contradict them I either reference Richard Curtis, or Paul Feig and his work on this film. Yes 'Bridesmaids' is not only a properly funny and well-constructed romance/com... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: It can at least be said for 'Iron Man 2' that they did choose an interesting direction for Tony Stark's character on paper, as seeing him struggle with his newfound responsibility and the mataphor of the suit literally poisoning him... Read the full review »

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 »
