2001: A Space Odyssey is ambiguous, minimalistic and quite frankly a masterpiece. Oh my word what did I just witness!? Can we all just take a moment and appreciate that this was conceived in 1968. 1968! We haven't had nearly enough decent films th... Read the full review »

Florence Foster Jenkins is the visualisation of following your dream, even if the consequences may hurt you. Straight away, the film tells you it's a true story so already you are hooked. I wanted to hate this film, I really did...but I loved it.... Read the full review »

The Void is an ambiguous, creepy, gore fuelled nightmare. Quite literally, it's as if the creators had a nightmare one night and decided "hmmm yes this would make a good film!". We've got grotesque creatures, a hellish endless hospital basement, t... Read the full review »

Lucy (2014)

Lucy (2014)

7 / 10
Lucy is...well, bonkers. I'm not too sure how to put my thoughts into a coherent review. I've seen this several times, and while yes it is very enjoyable, it's just absolutely crazy!? The first act is fine, Lucy has drugs in her stomach (for smugg... Read the full review »

Top Gun takes flying to a whole new level. I can't say I've seen many films about flying, or even aerial combat, so this is slightly new territory. Having said that, I thought this was a rather exhilarating flick! Tony Scott was a great director w... Read the full review »

We're The Millers is a road trip comedy that actually has great onscreen chemistry. If a comedy makes me laugh, it succeeds (I hardly laugh, I'm emotionless). I laughed twice, so it definitely succeeds. But what made this film work was the chemist... Read the full review »

Amelie is a French quirky character study and love story. I use the word quirky heavily because everything about this film is just full of quirks and idiosyncrasies. Our lead character, Amelie, bumbles along life with no cares or worries as she at... Read the full review »

Krampus is a horror comedy inspired by the folktale of Krampus himself. Essentially the opposite to Santa Claus but with the addition horns, chains and a flipping long tongue. So as I was watching this I thought "Yep, this looks like a typical Chr... Read the full review »

The Mummy is the remake of Universal's original horror film. Whilst the original was a horror film, this is more of an adventure flick with some horror elements. I grew up watching this film, I've seen it multiple times and every time I watch it I... Read the full review »

Mulan (1998)

Mulan (1998)

9 / 10
Mulan is an animated musical based on the old Chinese folk tale. The characters may have been changed for dramatic purposes, but the basis of the story is that a woman chooses to take her father's (who is getting old and frail) place in the army.... Read the full review »

The Day After Tomorrow is the most ecologically preachiest film I've seen. What's the message you say? Well I'll tell you. Global Warming is bad. So bad in fact, that one day the whole world will start turning into an ice age and there will be loa... Read the full review »

Project X is insane. It's ridiculous. It's crazy. It's a damn fun watch. Let's get this straight, this film has a basic plot (if any) and is filmed like an MTV music video. I mean from a critical perspective this is not a good film. The acting is... Read the full review »

I, Robot is a robotics film that questions humanity. Although not the first to do so by any means, see Spielberg's Artificial Intelligence or the Japanese anime Ghost in the Shell, this was the most accessible film at the time of its release. It's... Read the full review »

What are some of your favorite indie films that others might not have heard of?

I love political thrillers, and Roman Polanski's 'The Ghost Writer' (or 'The Ghost' here in the UK) is one of the most overlooked in the genre. Highly recommend it. View the full reply »

Angels & Demons showcases the ultimate debate of science and religion. This is of course masked by a thrilling story that both informs us of famous philosophers, scientists, sculptors etc. and keeps us glued to the screen. I remember watching this... Read the full review »

Captain Fantastic is, wait for it, fantastic. It's not often I watch a light hearted feel good film, they don't tend to stick in my cinephile brain. This though, is pretty much spectacular. A family living in the wilderness have to come to terms w... Read the full review »

Dredd (2012)

8 / 10
Dredd might just be the most overlooked superhero film. Oh yes, I do indeed enjoy this film every time. It's a simple premise, the mega cities law enforcement are judges and they are able to sentence criminals and/or execute them if necessary. In... Read the full review »

The Huntsman: Winter's War is the most unnecessary sequel to a film that did not need one. But alas, here we are. This time Snow White is out of the picture and we follow the huntsman as he tries to stop the ice queen from having the mirror that R... Read the full review »
