Kung Fu Panda sporadically uses the Wuxi Finger Hold to produce an uneven yet delightful animation. A family-oriented parody animation, paying homage to the classic martial arts features that clearly inspired it. 'The Karate Kid', 'Enter The Drago... Read the full review »

Insidious Chapter 3 journeys further back into the "Further" with further jump scares and a commonplace plot. Long-time collaborator Whannell takes the helm in what is his directorial debut, a prequel to Wan's insanely popular franchise. The Lambe... Read the full review »

Rocky (1976)

Rocky (1976)

8 / 10
Rocky delivers a knockout performance with a script more balanced than the southpaw stance. The underdog story of all underdog stories. Allowed Stallone to climb more steps to stardom than Philadelphia's Museum of Art. Accumulated enough box offic... Read the full review »

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood forced me to recall that the golden age of filmmaking was never this tedious. Not even Tarantino with his blood-soaked trademark violence can save this year from mediocrity. It's abundantly clear that his ninth film i... Read the full review »

Kill Bill Vol. 1 slashes its way through sword wielding extras in Tarantino's trademark style. His ode to Japanese cinema, merging Western tropes with Eastern aesthetics. Blending stylised filters, utilising excessive spraying blood and embedding... Read the full review »

Invader Zim: Enter The Florpus made me want to roll around in layers of pizza, laughing joyously through nostalgic eyes. Invader Zim was probably the core essence of my childhood, and notably being one of Nickelodeon's best intellectual properties... Read the full review »

300 (2006)

300 (2006)

5 / 10
300 is ab-solutely ab-tastic yet ab-horrently boring. Homoeroticism at its most stylish. Lumps of pure visualised muscle walking in sandals and red togas. Obnoxiously loud roars piercing the battlegrounds, asserting the Spartan masculinity to the... Read the full review »

Eden Lake brutally conveys a fragmented society through excessively harrowing ordeals. Sometimes, on the odd occasion, I question my own sanity. Having seen this thrilling horror once before, and its staying power never once escaping my fragile mi... Read the full review »

Jack Reacher smoothly reaches for thrilling heights but is weighed down by a heavily condensed plot. As always, I have yet to read (and probably will never, let's be honest) Lee Child's series of crime novels featuring the titular drifter. However... Read the full review »

Sunset Boulevard drives down the venomously paranoid streets of a scathingly ruthless Hollywood. Silver screen classics, particularly noir films, drain the life force out of me. They require effort, stamina and widened blood-shot eyes in order to... Read the full review »

Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist musically selects every romantic cliché with tone deaf results. Not every quirky romantic comedy measures the decibels of a high-pitched orgasm, but sweet lord Nick & Norah did. And now I'm scarred for life. Thank... Read the full review »

Ring (1998)

Ring (1998)

7 / 10
Ringu waits an agonising seven days to uncover a frightening mystery. Nakata's ominous J-horror that commenced a franchise both in its native country and picked up by Hollywood, has been recycled, parodied and analysed countless times in the past... Read the full review »

Life is Beautiful earnestly embeds optimism in the darkest of moments, but with minimal emotional impact. La vita è bella. Benigni's audacious dramatic comedy that substitutes the frequently utilised depressing perspective of the Holocaust for a... Read the full review »

Carnage briefly explores annihilation through verbal warfare, yet lacks ferocity. If ever there was an unsubstantial, menial and utterly short drama consisting of various arguments heightening in rage featuring a cast of white middle class parents... Read the full review »

Hobbs & Shaw attempt to drive down the spin-off route but rarely becoming fast nor furious. Hobnobs & Shoreditch. Hobo & Shawarma. How About Stop Milking A Franchise & Sir, I'm Milking This Cow Til It's Completely Drained. Whatever the heck this s... Read the full review »

Piper (2016)

Piper (2016)

9 / 10
Piper visually stuns through realistic animation whilst retaining its feathery coming-of-age core. Decades. Literally decades. It has taken thirty two years for Pixar to release their greatest short yet. A visual delight involving a sandpiper hunt... Read the full review »

Creature From The Black Lagoon makes a splash with stunning underwater photography and a monstrous costume. Surprisingly, although I say that with the lightest of tones considering I've rarely seen any classics (my apologies...), I've not seen any... Read the full review »
