Fifty Shades Darker is the equivalent of having sex with someone you don't want to be with. By that, I mean you want the lights off so you can't see their face. So turn your lights off, and while you're up just turn the TV off as well because ther... Read the full review »

Fifty Shades of Grey has sex...that's about it. I cannot believe I actually watched this. Me, who solemnly swore he wouldn't watch such rubbish, made the bold choice to watch this for the sake of his friend. That's how kind I am. I would succumb t... Read the full review »

Devil's Advocate blends courtroom drama with religious connotations. An interesting combination that evokes several themes. The problem is though, the two don't necessarily marinate well together constantly. A hot shot talented lawyer is unstoppab... Read the full review »

The Reader is a perfectly constructed drama that feels extremely understated. This is an interesting one. Often regarded as an "Oscar-bait" film due to its subject matter and focus on acting. I never believe this term to be a detriment, in fact it... Read the full review »

Dead Silence is an effective creepy horror that just stays above mediocrity. James Wan pre-Insidious, clearly the man was still testing waters. After much success with 'Saw', Wan turned his nightmare inducing mind to a more supernatural state with... Read the full review »

The Disaster Artist adds an additional layer of emotion to the world's best worst movie. Firstly, if you haven't seen "The Room" please do. Like now...actually finish reading this first, then watch it. It's a genius masterpiece for all the wrong r... Read the full review »

Han Gong-Ju is delicate, intimate and horrible simultaneously. Yet another soul draining experience where I'm left thinking "no wonder I have no emotions, films just drain them til I have none left". I mean this was powerful without the story bein... Read the full review »

The International is an extremely mature and meticulous conspiracy thriller. My adoration for cold realistic spy thrillers is well known. From the likes of John Le Carré film adaptations to technological conspiracy thrillers, there is something f... Read the full review »

Men In Black 3 is a much deserved sequel although doesn't quite reach the heights of the original. Let's face it, anything could've been better than 'Men In Black 2' in what is quite possibly one of the most boring sequels ever. A franchise hiatus... Read the full review »

The Strangers survives on realistic terror but fails to create any emotional depth. I was so looking forward to watching this again, it had been years. I remember this being superbly scary. Now, this really didn't affect me and found it had too ma... Read the full review »

Can't find a film you are looking for?

Han Gong-Ju for some reason has a release data of January 1st 0000 so I can't review it. View the full reply »

Thief (1981)

Thief (1981)

7 / 10
Thief is an impressive debut from Michael Mann but does feel sporadically disengaging. I believe Mann is a good director. From acclaimed works like "Collateral" and "Heat" to underrated gems like "Blackhat". He has always been known for creating g... Read the full review »

Monster House has now become a traditional watch among casual viewers. Interestingly this received a mixed reception upon release, but as time has gone on it slowly garnered a following. I can see why, especially for younger audiences. Halloween f... Read the full review »

Office Christmas Party continues the annual trend of drunken shenanigans during the holiday season. It's literally what you expect it to be. An office Christmas party where it goes slightly chaotic towards the end (like all parties should do). The... Read the full review »

Oblivion is, personally, one of my favourite modern sci-fi films. Honestly, I do believe this is supremely underrated. Now I know I will be in the minority with my opinion, and that's perfectly fine. After all, I gave "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" a s... Read the full review »

The Maze Runner is a confident start to another YA franchise. You might be getting sick to death with these YA universes, but guess what? You just got another one. Fortunately though, this is more "The Hunger Games" than "Divergent" in terms of qu... Read the full review »

Trainspotting 2 is a competent and nostalgic fuelled sequel that feels slightly underwhelming. Having only watch the original for the first time this year, it's safe to say I'm not part of the cult following. Having said that, I really enjoyed it... Read the full review »
