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 »

The Passion of the Christ feels "holy" unnecessary. This wasn't for me. Regardless of my religious views, this biblical drama was style over substance. I wanted to be absorbed by the devotional writings that Gibson expertly adapted. I wanted to em... Read the full review »

Ichi The Killer parodies media representation through high-impact violence. When the first line of the plot from Wikipedia states: "Ichi masturbates on an apartment balcony whilst watching a pimp assault a prostitute.", you just know what you are... Read the full review »

The Da Vinci Code mystifies its audience through a stimulating yet bloated script. Controversial for its proliferation of the "mythical" Priory of Sion and fraudulent ideology that Christianity is built based upon a lie, there is nothing quite lik... Read the full review »

**900TH FILMFED REVIEW** The Human Centipede is a pointless affair that should swallow its own excrement. "The most shocking film to ever exist". "Entirely deplorable and revolting, sort of brilliant". "Cronenbergian care and precision". Did we wa... Read the full review »

Into The Spider-Verse crawls, swings and glitches its way in becoming the best Spider-Man adaptation. It took Sony over a decade to finally create a decent superhero flick that involves not one web slinger, but six of them. Well, better late than... Read the full review »

The Unborn gave birth to nothing. Literal vacuous emptiness. Non-sensical, pointless and quite simply dull. "Jumby wants to be born now". Well I wish he would because lord knows it would've been something at the very least. Nothing happened! This... Read the full review »

Tower Heist provides a light comedic caper that feels more restricted than a bungalow. "Bungalow Heist" probably doesn't have the same ring to it (although I'd pay to see it!). This is a weird one to review. It's without a doubt Ratner's best film... Read the full review »

Roma (2018)

Roma (2018)

10 / 10
Roma ravishingly depicts family and loss from Cuarón's personal perspective. Typically I would wait a few hours to gather my thoughts and write my review. Not this time. There's no need to even doubt the only word that describes this film. Perfec... Read the full review »
