Dragonball Evolution made me "Kamehameha" my TV. Listen, if you're going to adapt a thirteen episode season of a beloved anime into a film that is less than 80 minutes long, atleast try to capture the essence of the source material. Ladies and gen... Read the full review »

The Kids Are All Right is a progressive drama that is actually alright. To be fair, it's better than "alright". One of the first films to truly embrace the progressive decade that was to follow, it breaks away from traditional family dramas by fea... Read the full review »

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is unfortunately rather ordinary. Now, this is a film I absolutely loved when I was younger. I used to replay the Venice bomb explosion chase scene constantly on a weekly basis. And, this film started my fasci... Read the full review »

Catwoman makes coughing up a hairball more enticing. I have no words. I heard the chitter and the chatter, with many deeming this superhero disaster to be one of the worst films of all time. To say I agree would be an understatement. Holy leather... Read the full review »

Stan & Ollie stands up with its classic comedy to portray a famous friendship. Having never seen a film with Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, I was sceptical that this biographical drama wouldn't be accessible for younger audiences. However what Bair... Read the full review »

Tales From Earthsea lacks narrative depth and grounded characters. Yet another epic fantasy that reeks of grandeur and adventure. The gentle imaginative breezes of life from 'Princess Mononoke' and the companionship and embrace of its protagonists... Read the full review »

McQueen documents the artistic successes and personal failures of a creative genius. Admittedly, I had absolutely no idea who Lee Alexander McQueen was. Incredibly naive of me, but the fashion industry is one that remains undivulged. Suffice to sa... Read the full review »

Thirst (2009)

Thirst (2009)

7 / 10
Thirst quenches Chan-wook's desire to craft a blood-sucking good time. Well, this was bizarre. Not something I would have ever imagined Chan-wook to direct. It can be best described as a dark religious vampiric sex-comedy. If any of those descript... Read the full review »

The Last Exorcism exorcises typical genre traits before its diminishing conclusion. Oh look, another "Found Footage" styled low budget horror. I'm sure this narrative will follow the exact structure from others that came before it. "Hi, I'm Cotton... Read the full review »

Hanna (2011)

Hanna (2011)

6 / 10
Hanna struggles to balance stylish girl power with dramatic coming-of-age development. Wright is best known for acclaimed period British dramas that relish in classicism and Keira Knightley. So much to our surprise, he broke away from his comfort... Read the full review »

The Front Runner sprints to its scandalous finish line whilst tackling heavy themes. For some unknown reason, other than its political approach, this journalistic drama has disappeared from awards season. With mediocre critical reviews and a warm-... Read the full review »

The Iron Lady rusts into a melodramatic biopic that needed ironing out. Political films, including biopics, are often fraught with personal views from critics and audiences. Atleast that is what I told myself to explain the low scoring reviews. Ha... Read the full review »

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter swings his axe and just about beheads the competition. Remember when one of America's most famous presidents was also slaying vampires as a hobby? No? Well now you do. When we receive a title such as Abraham Lincoln... Read the full review »

Spawn (1997)

2 / 10
Spawn should've stayed in hell. Sony's PlayStation was released in 1994. The Nintendo 64 was released in 1996. Spawn was theatrically released in 1997. If you've seen the film, you know exactly where I'm going with this! An "innovative visual expe... Read the full review »

The Favourite deliciously balances courtly politics, devious deceit and sexual jealousy with dark humour. Yorgos Lanthimos is a director that does not hide any aspects to his films. If it's unusual, explicit or perhaps even downright mad, he will... Read the full review »
