Gigli (2003)

Gigli (2003)

1 / 10
Gigli gobbled up its romcom promise as if it was "turkey time". Oh boy. I'm questioning my life choices right now. To say that Gigli, sorry I mean "Jee-lee" if we're being pretentious, is a romantic comedy is the equivalent of stating that chlamyd... Read the full review »

Taken (2008)

Taken (2008)

7 / 10
Taken called up the European tourism board and left one sinister voice mail. Iconic. This generic action thriller is your typical run-of-the-(Bryan)mill(s) situation. Father desires to have a better relationship with his daughter, but unfortunatel... Read the full review »

Apollo 11 launches to the Moon in technical perfection. Documentaries can be very mechanical and overfamiliar with its editing structure. Interviews, sentimentality and archival footage used for elaborating backgrounds. And with last year's flawle... Read the full review »

The Haunting in Connecticut gives the state a bad name for itself. Y'know, whenever a film shoves the words "Based on a true story." immediately in your face, nine times out of ten it's going to be a load of ectoplasmic ejaculate. Did I watch the... Read the full review »

Child's Play entertainingly catapults a mechanical Chucky to the Internet era. As with most modern unnecessary remakes of classic horror slashers (and trust me, there are far too many of them), I sat down in my seat with the lowest of expectations... Read the full review »

Delivery Man is all jizz and not enough spunk. A situational comedy-drama that Hollywood grabbed their hands on in order to appeal to the masses. Yet here is Vaughn appearing in a shot-for-shot remake, this time of the French-Canadian comedy 'Star... Read the full review »

Child's Play turns an innocent doll into a menacing foul-mouthed serial killer. Ahhh, Chucky. How I've never seen your debut film until now baffles me. A legendary face in the slasher genre, Chucky had always found itself in the mainstream despite... Read the full review »

Ferris Bueller's Day Off joyously shows that perhaps we should all pull a sickie occasionally. As with many classics which have been circulating around the historical presence of cinema, it's stupendously easy to be intimidated by a specific film.... Read the full review »

Monsters Dark Continent monstrously destroys the thematic intelligence of its predecessor. Edwards' surprise debut 'Monsters' was a feature that, despite my reserved rating, had layers upon layers of contemporary purpose. The resemblance between e... Read the full review »

Hop (2011)

Hop (2011)

2 / 10
Hop is better off being butchered, making a nice rabbit stew. I woke up this Saturday morning thinking "let's put on a nice mediocre animation". An easy and pleasant watch, that's all I wanted. Naturally, I didn't even get that! How difficult is i... Read the full review »

Toy Story 4 is packed with heartwarming fluff pulling at your voice string. With the third instalment wrapping events up more neatly that Bo Peep's glistening china complexion, and causing grown adults to weep uncontrollably, many will approach th... Read the full review »

Brightburn is one caped guardian that does not burn brightly. This was always going to be divisive. Blending the common "Superman" archetype with a refreshing horror spin. Exploring the eternal question of "what if a superhero turned bad?". The an... Read the full review »

Sinister 2 was less frightening than Bughuul having a good ol' boogie with ghost children. Derrickson's original horror film was, much to everyone's dismay, an unexpected surprise for me. Sure some of the jump scares were insanely stupid (the lapt... Read the full review »

Poltergeist is one remake that should remain in its ancient burial ground. Why would someone choose to remake the fantastic original? It would be near impossible to replicate/improve on the Hooper, Spielberg and Goldsmith ethereal dream team. Both... Read the full review »

Paranormal Activity 4 is essentially a product placement for Microsoft's Xbox Kinect. A horror film designed to showcase the motion-sensing peripheral by having a CGI demonic ghost blur some tracking dots occasionally. Aside from that minimal use... Read the full review »
