WHAT I LIKED: 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' harkens back to the adventure movies of years past, and like many of those, it serves entirely as decent, fluffy, cinema entertainment. Yes with plenty of fun obstacle courses, a narrative filled with mumbo... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Like the other John Wicks (and let's not kid ourselves by pretending that the these films are any different from each other), 'John Wick - Chapter 3: Pebblebum' is an exercise in how to do style-over-substance filmmaking right. It ta... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: Films which involve a character in the present narrating a past story which comes to life are rarely particularly successful. 'Forest Gump' is one of the few examples that works well, and 'Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Caf... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: 'Blues Brothers' is all surface - a couple of cool criminals on the run from almost everyone trying to play with their awesome soul band in a story that spirals further and further out of control and gets increasingly, increasingly r... Read the full review »

Jaws (1975)

Jaws (1975)

8 / 10
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: In the words of the legendary Mark Kermode, 'Jaws' is not about a shark. It's really about how commercial interests and people's obsession with money corrupts the people of a seaside town to ignore the danger of a man-eating sh... Read the full review »
