Welcome to Marwen feels more disjointed than its heroic dolls. Starting off the year with what is possibly one of the most difficult films to critique. I'm sure Zemeckis had the best intentions when directing/writing this drama, a director who has... Read the full review »

2019 Movies Ranked

An on-going ranking list of the films I've seen in 2019 and the current position they are in. These are mostly based on enjoyment and the technical aspects into making a film. Using UK theatrical release dates so there might be some films released...

Predator 2 falls prey to its own stupidity. There's a fine line between silly entertainment and stupid irritations. This sequel to the testosterone packed 'Predator' is unfortunately the latter. McTiernan's creative and focused direction has gone.... Read the full review »

X-Men Origins: Wolverine shreds its source material into little tiny pieces. Oooof. Kids, this is why we can't have nice things. When a franchise gains continued success, the studio believe they can do no wrong. Well, this pointless atrocity is th... Read the full review »

Megamind uses his super villainous cranium to create an unoriginal scheme. Dreamworks animations are hit and miss for me. Will Ferrell is usually boisterously unfunny. And superhero fatigue started to develop back in 2010. With all that being said... Read the full review »

The Heat is a lukewarm effort that remains handcuffed to a mediocre script. Director Feig is usually consistent with his comedies, particularly those that involve McCarthy. But despite the watchable chemistry of its leads, something was missing in... Read the full review »

Elektra assassinated its "plot" for Garner's flat stomach and eternal breezes. Oh my. Can no one write decent roles for the protagonist in female-lead blockbusters? I have never seen a character undergo so many personality changes in one film, unt... Read the full review »

The Greatest Showman was unable to rewrite the stars with its formulaic story. Every year there is a "crowd pleaser", a film that has garnered criticism from industry experts but received overwhelming popularity from audiences. This was that film... Read the full review »

X-Men: The Last Stand is a mess of juggernaut proportions. "Don't you know who I am? I'm the Juggernaut...". Well, not exactly the disaster that everyone harks on about, but still a substantial step down from the excellent 'X2'. Franchise fatigue?... Read the full review »

Mary Poppins Returns is not quite practically perfect in every way. A nostalgic trip down Cherry Tree Lane for older audiences, and a chance for newer generations to experience the whimsicality of the eponymous magical nanny. Whilst joyful and sat... Read the full review »

The Good Dinosaur tells a poignant prehistoric, yet familiar, tale. Considered by many to be one of Pixar's weakest entries in their illustrious filmography, this family animation may lack narrative memorability but do not let that deter you away.... Read the full review »

Matangi/Maya/M.I.A. powerfully presents an artist's authenticity to convey a message. Having only listened to a handful of her songs, M.I.A. was relatively unknown to me both as an artist and a person. Now that I've seen this informative documenta... Read the full review »

Die Hard explodes its way in becoming the pinnacle of action films. It isn't Christmas if you don't watch Die Hard. Yippee-kiyay motherfu...well, you know the rest. John McClane. Nakatomi Plaza. Hans Gruber. Twinkies. "Let it snow, let it snow, le... Read the full review »

Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief is absent of any thunderous shocks. It is what it is, a standard formulaic family fantasy adventure adapted from a series of books that were vastly superior. It's a challenge to differentiate any family fantasy... Read the full review »

Cannibal Holocaust, although unorthodox, does present savagery through innovation. There I was eating a couple of bland Rich Tea biscuits, when all of a sudden an innocent monkey is decapitated with a tribesman devouring its tiny skull. Safe to sa... Read the full review »

Irréversible has made me unable to reverse the explicit horrors I just witnessed. Love is irreversible. Sex is irreversible. Time is irreversible, and time destroys everything. After delving into my first Gaspar Noé feature, I immediately wanted... Read the full review »
