Reservoir Dogs is loud, bloody and constantly in your face. In terms of directorial debuts, this is a solid entry that assured Tarantino as one of the best directors working today. Now, as most of you know, I'm not a big fan of Tarantino. Just not... Read the full review »

The Truman Show proves that an original concept can provide an innovative and engaging story. In a time where the UK has 'The Only Way Is Essex', 'Geordie Shore' and 'Made in Chelsea', reality TV shows are a massive hit. I wish they weren't, but t... Read the full review »

Moonlight might not captivate the average moviegoer, but for me this was a personal and intimate journey. Once in a blue moon, I witness a landmark in cinematic history. A film so masterful, that it is near impossible to fault. I can say with the... Read the full review »

The Snowman fails to heat up as a thriller and slowly melts away into mediocrity. Ahhhh what a missed opportunity this was! All the right components were there, yet somehow it completely missed the mark. A detective, with an alcohol problem, joins... Read the full review »

Doom (2005)

Doom (2005)

3 / 10
Doom was doomed right from the start. Come on, who honestly thought this was a good idea? Of all the video games to adapt with decent storylines, Universal chose a first-person horror shooter. *sigh*...oh dear. Loosely based off the video game wit... Read the full review »

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is...well...peculiar. It's safe to say I'm not the biggest Tim Burton fan, I find that his imagination takes over and detracts from a story. I was worried he would do the same here. Guess what? He did. A... Read the full review »

Training Day is a prime example of how just one scene can elevate a film to greatness. You all know the scene I'm talking about. Alonzo's monologue against the street that he thought would cooperate with him. That scene. Urgh, genius. A rookie nar... Read the full review »

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is one of the stronger video game adaptations, although that's not saying much. Nearly every production studio has made an attempt at making a decent video game adaptation. There are some good iterations but the... Read the full review »

Pokémon 3 The Movie is my personal favourite from the original trilogy. It still lacks the cinematic style from the first, however it is a definite improvement from its predecessor. As always, this is slightly biased as I am a massive fan of the... Read the full review »

The Handmaiden is sumptuous, provocative and, I can say with confidence, a masterpiece. I try not to use that word, it's rather overused for films that just aren't masterpieces. But when a film is so gorgeous that it imitates art, so multi-dimensi... Read the full review »

Snitch (2013)

Snitch (2013)

6 / 10
Snitch tackles the subject of the current war on drugs but stumbles in basic storytelling. The poster and marketing made you believe this was an action film, they were wrong. You thought there would be enough thrills to have this classed as a thri... Read the full review »

Catch Me If You Can is a classic cat-and-mouse chase that feels refreshingly whimsical. Spielberg is damn versatile. He is able to craft some of cinema's hard hitting dramas (Schindler's List), biggest blockbusters (Jurassic Park) and child-friend... Read the full review »

Road to Perdition is a classy, powerfully performed and compelling gangster crime thriller. How do you make a depression era American gangster mob crime drama thriller (and breathe...) look visually arresting? You bring in Sam Mendes. No one else... Read the full review »

The Deer Hunter is like fine wine, the more it ages the sweeter it tastes. And boy has this aged incredibly well! 1978 and still utterly gripping and compelling. Is it a masterpiece? No. However to conceive something so bold, daring and powerful i... Read the full review »

Pokémon The Movie 2000 tries to capture the grandiose of its predecessor, but doesn't quite reach that level. Ultimately this review will be somewhat biased, as a massive fan of the franchise I will always have a soft spot for these films. Howeve... Read the full review »

The Night Before follows the current tradition of a Christmas party comedy, except this one is just as bland as the others. Really? Why? Why must we have these every year? We've seen one, therefore we've seen them all. This time around we follow t... Read the full review »

Bone Tomahawk substitutes traditional western genre tropes for plenty of gore. Now y'all know westerns are my least favourite type of film. I find them slow, monotonous, boring and unmemorable. They just don't appeal to me. Suffice to say, I am pl... Read the full review »
