WHAT I LIKED: After proving itself with gritty on-the-ground action and espionage excitement, the Bourne franchise returns to impress by balancing the focus both on Bourne (as in the first installment), and on the corrupt CIA. The Bourne half is d... Read the full review »

Fences (2016)

Fences (2016)

10 / 10
WHAT I LIKED: 'Fences' is, without doubt, one of my favourite films of 2017, as it packs more raw, emotional weight and sheer, gut-punching gravitas than virtually anything I've seen all year. Now agreeably it's not the most 'cinematic' production... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: There are a number of reasons why Richard Curtis' 'About Time,' always has me so emotionally engaged and affected, and why it easily winds up as one of my personal favourite films of all time. First of all, and perhaps most important... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: I don't think you can truly appreciate how different and innovative 'Arrival' is until you see it, because literally everything here is entirely fresh and unexpected, and delves underneath everything we think we know. For a start, th... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Sometimes I can see why a film I like isn't well received, but frankly the reaction to 'X-Men: Apocalypse' has me stumped. As far as I'm concerned, in the absence of messy set-ups and timeline conformity, this is one of the best movi... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Finding Nemo' is one of those films that just represents very simple, very effective story-telling that works extremelly well. The adventure is easy but highly engaging because the father-son relationship is well developed, the mean... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The characters are well realised for sure, and the animation itself is very good indeed. WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Despite all, the film actually offers very little in terms of plot, pace, excitement or interesting dialogue to keep childre... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The animation is great, and the characters are well developed. All this allows 'Happy feet' to dance with some great themes and still make it appeal to the whole family. WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Having said that, the plot is extremelly th... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The real marvel of 'Catch me if you Can' is most definitely its story, as the sheer madness of what is supposedly truth is enough to boggle the mind. Of course with that in place it would be very easy to let its engagement slip, but... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: There are some amusing moments in James Bond spoof 'Johnny English,' and most of those come from the comedic ability of the brilliant Rowan Atkinson, who - despite being heavily restrained by the film around him - does shine occasion... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Few were crying out for a sequel to the the rather lackluster and unfunny 'Johnny English,' but as far as I'm concerned this premise still had potential, and frankly the second ends up doing a far better job with it - though not nece... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Much like with 'Iron Man' just before it, the thing that works about Marvel's 'The Incredible Hulk' is the character stuff, as there are some attempts here to make you care about this Bruce Banner. Edward Norton delivers a great perf... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: An innocent and beautiful love story; 'Love, Rosie' mostly succeeds in building two characters with real believable chemistry to hook you into the whole experience. This is thanks to a fairly well-built plot, as well as two sparkling... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: What's interesting about George Lucas' Star Wars prequels is that they're about people trying to do good in a system of power, war and bureaucracy which makes things almost impossible, and you certainly get glimpses of that in 'The P... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'The Phantom Menace,' planted the seeds of some interesting things, but 'Attack of the Clones,' delivers on them by brilliantly realising the world of corruption and bureaucracy leading to a galaxy at war. We get to see the real bure... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The prequels are interesting because they're not about black and white and good vs evil - they exist in a greyer realm in which bureaucracy and power corrupts and forces the hands of even the most sacred and well-intended individuals... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: An epic and brooding follow-up to George Lucas' mysterious and enchanting 'Star Wars,' 'The Empire Strikes Back,' is a film that takes the delicately planted questions of the first film and answers them in bold and surprising ways to... Read the full review »
