Scarface lathers itself in memorable quotes, stylised violence and mountains of cocaine. Brian De Palma remade the 1932 classic and exclaimed to Hollywood "say hello to my little friend!". Modernising it to colossal heights, thus creating one of t... Read the full review »

Paranormal Activity 3 cranks up the ghostly scares but narratively crumbles into franchise fatigue. Improvement alert, I repeat, improvement alert! I didn't see it coming, my TV didn't see it coming and I'm pretty sure the series itself didn't see... Read the full review »

Silence nullifies you through viscerally stunning imagery and faithfully religious themes. Many of you may know that I am not a massive fan of Scorsese unlike most aficionados. In addition, you may have acknowledged the fact that I also dislike lo... Read the full review »

Dark Skies is overcast with extraterrestrial clouds and spells of family unification. Not nearly as bad as most people will make this out to be. Extraterrestrial horror is something of a rarity these days. Blending the scepticism of alien existenc... Read the full review »

The Cloverfield Paradox strings together illogical scenarios to create a galactic mess. Possibly employing the best marketing technique ever, announcing and releasing the film on the very same day to everyone's surprise, my excitement naturally ex... Read the full review »

Most Beautiful Island turns the American dream into a gruelling nightmare. Directorial debut, producer, writer and leading actress. Asensio delivers a contemporary thriller utilising desperation as its thoroughly constructed buildup to its uneasy... Read the full review »

Sponge Out Of Water absorbs all the lunacy and humour from the TV series through its animated pores. I. Love. SpongeBob. I just do. Me and Mr Squarepants understand each other on a level of hilarity. He is the sponge to my shower. The pants to my... Read the full review »

Men In Black II borrows elements that made its predecessor astronomically fun, yet somehow made a boring sequel. This can be best described as the weakest instalment of the franchise, no question. Same director, same actors, same aesthetic appeal.... Read the full review »

Confessions conveys a meticulous murder mystery through excessive slow-motion and an over elaborate plot. Asian cinema tends to reside on the extremities of the film spectrum. They are either ridiculously subdued or extremely visceral. This post-m... Read the full review »

Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension utilises the same expired found footage style that made the series monotonously derivative. "The Ghost Dimension"? An entire metaphysical reality that coexists with our own physical realm? A parallel subnet... Read the full review »

Incredibles 2 retains the incredible status of the original and acts as a heroic continuation. 14 years! I've patiently waited for over a decade to witness the aftermath of "The Underminer". Was it worth the wait? You betcha superhero mask it was!... Read the full review »

Bao (2018)

7 / 10
Bao, much like the dumpling, is sweet, fluffy and full of hearty meat. Pixar animation shorts are known to be experimental, particular with the aesthetic style. Their newest short settles for a more common computer generated animation technique th... Read the full review »

Skyscraper allows Johnson to tower over a script that doesn't set this superstructure on fire. There are films so stupid yet serious that the implausibility of any situation leaves a sour aftertaste. Conversely, there are films that relish in its... Read the full review »

The Devil Inside needs to be exorcised at least 127 times. The seed that grew into January being a "dump month" for horror films, a term used to describe the releasing of low quality studio productions. The first weekend of January now being the m... Read the full review »
