The Hangover Part III feels like pretending to be drunk at a funeral. In an attempt to modify the formula that made its predecessors all so popular, this third chapter shifts drastically in tone. The crazy drunken shenanigans have been replaced wi... Read the full review »

Tin Toy may have garnered some rust but acts as a seed for Pixar's debut feature film. Lasseter as director, anthropomorphic toys and a nightmarishly destructive baby. Yes, Tin Toy was what Disney desired after it won Pixar's first Oscar and acted... Read the full review »

V/H/S (2012)

V/H/S (2012)

2 / 10
**800TH FILMFED REVIEW** V/H/S has as much use currently as a Video Home System. Vague Horror Segments. Vicious Harmful Stupidity. Very Heterosexual Shenanigans (seriously, so much "tittage" on screen). The concept should've worked, blending the r... Read the full review »

Lego House boasts awe-inspiring creations but resembles a tedious instruction manual. Lego is everywhere. Toys, construction, video games and other merchandise. Suffice to say the family company has grown considerably in size since the birth of th... Read the full review »

The Lego Ninjago Movie rushes along faster than a ninja on amphetamine. This is Lego attempting to inject a fairly unknown intellectual property into the mainstream, most likely in an attempt to gain sales from their merchandise. Putting that mono... Read the full review »

The Tourist contains light escapism in a convoluted pedestrian plot. Mainstream short thrillers that do not require much concentration are fine for passing time, and can make for an enjoyable experience. Unfortunately for this star-studded flick,... Read the full review »

The Fourth Kind feels more like 'Obvious Encounters of the Boring Kind'. Director Osunsamni had good intentions, this film means no harm to the reputation of Nome, Alaska, and attempts to produce an eerie psycho-thriller utilising an inventive sty... Read the full review »

Quarantine lacks the original's impactful isolation but remains infectiously scary. A shot-for-shot remake of the Spanish horror '[Rec]', which in my opinion is one of the most nerve-racking film experiences to have been produced. Some may claim t... Read the full review »

Searching manages to turn social networking into an emotionally charged twisty thriller. We've seen this style of filmmaking before with 'Unfriended' and, whilst it did work, felt too gimmicky to be taken seriously. Chaganty's directorial debut ut... Read the full review »

The Nun may have atmosphere but religiously relies on jump scares. The latest spinoff in the most unlikely of cinematic universes, that being the "Conjuring-verse", is an origin story for the demonic entity known as Valak. Whom of which we all saw... Read the full review »

Shin Godzilla is the harmonious blend of classic Toho and contemporaneous optimism. Another reboot in the long-running Japanese franchise that has contained actors in giant rubber costumes decimating cities and brawling with each other amidst chao... Read the full review »

TEKKEN (2011)

3 / 10
Tekken punches, kicks and body slams your sanity to the ground. 'Mortal Kombat' wasn't exactly a success, its sequel did not fare any better and 'DOA: Dead or Alive' no one saw. So naturally I have to ask myself the question that is evidently all... Read the full review »

Beowulf ferociously attacks with brave animation to disguise an uninteresting story. After 'The Polar Express', Zemeckis returns to the innovative world of photorealism. This time substituting a friendly Santa Claus, snow and a train with a ghastl... Read the full review »

Predators travels back to its jungle roots but feels drier than its humid environment. After a lacklustre sequel and collaboration with a far more successful sci-fi franchise, Rodriguez attempts to resurrect this carcass of a film series. While th... Read the full review »

Red's Dream may just contain the most nightmarish clown ever. Pixar were starting to experiment. After the success of their previous short 'Luxo Jr', Lasseter attempted to recreate the technicality and wonderment of the animation by introducing ne... Read the full review »

Surrogates is another exercise in "great concept, poor execution". Ever thought to yourself "wow, actually that would make for an intellectually stimulating and philosophically provocative film challenging both morals and ethics"? No? Really? Just... Read the full review »
