Casablanca dances the war-driven night away with sweeping romanticism. Another classic that many critics and cinephiles believe to be one of the greatest pieces of cinema ever. And much like 'Citizen Kane', I unfortunately was not overly enamoured... Read the full review »

Singin' In The Rain is pouring with whimsical musicality and soaking in silver screen magic. The musical genre is not my favourite. Not in the slightest. Taking a drama and having characters randomly burst into a musical number never really appeal... Read the full review »

Rambo (2008)

Rambo (2008)

6 / 10
Rambo returns to doing what he does best, soaking jungles in blood and guts. Admittedly, I've never seen any of the previous instalments, so I was unsure what I was letting myself in for. Safe to say that the certification it obtained was very muc... Read the full review »

Dogtooth mentally conditions its children through meandering tricks. Before Lanthimos made a name for himself with western audiences, with the likes of 'The Lobster' and 'The Favourite', his first few films were pure Arthouse. With such a low budg... Read the full review »

Pandorum succumbs to its own delirious psychosis. A small dosage of 'Resident Evil', a splash of 'The Descent' and the claustrophobic setting of 'Alien'. These Lovecraftian horror elements should've been fully maximised to create an atmospheric sc... Read the full review »

Lava (2014)

Lava (2014)

4 / 10
Lava solidifies into a forgettable romantic vacation. A short musical involving one volcano helplessly falling in love with another volcano with the assistance of picturesque illustrations and on screen lyrics. This Hawaiian slideshow is beautiful... Read the full review »

George & A.J. resembles a basic storyboard of a deleted scene. An accompaniment to everyone's favourite ten minute introductory sequence (I'm holding back the tears already...), this short to 'Up' unravels what happened to the Shady Oaks retiremen... Read the full review »

The Box pushes an ambitious button but creates an unsatisfying mystery. Kelly will always be known for 'Donnie Darko', no matter how successful his next film may be. Deep down he knows this, which is why The Box takes several elements of said film... Read the full review »

The Breakfast Club is one detention that I could sit through again and again. As an avid cinephile, I often see this coming-of-age teen drama in many "best of all time" lists. So naturally I was hesitant to take the plunge, considering my modern e... Read the full review »

The Bank Job robbed its characters of any personality. This is one of the more mainstream British crime flicks (along with Ritchie's 'Lock Stock' and 'Snatch'), mainly because Statham and a plethora of stars from acclaimed British TV are stamped o... Read the full review »

Hyde Park On Hudson is as bland as FDR's "special relationship". A pivotal moment in the uniting of two nations during an uneasy time of political turmoil. War is looming, royalty could be ceased and Roosevelt is succumbing to disease and frailty.... Read the full review »

The Family lacks unity but plays with typical gangster tropes. Not a hundred percent sure what Besson was trying to do here. A homage to classic gangster flicks but without the ferocity and brutality. A light-hearted comedy but with limited laughs... Read the full review »

Happy Death Day 2U bends more genres than a night of birthday drinking. The first film was a pleasant surprise. No one expected the merge of 'Groundhog Day' and 'Scream' to work so well. Whilst I did have issues, it was enjoyable enough for me to... Read the full review »

Purl (2019)

Purl (2019)

6 / 10
Purl threads its way through a bland office addressing inclusivity issues. Tackling workplace diversity is an important issue, heck even the office I work in is male-centric. So Pixar's first film of their SparkShorts program is all about the toxi... Read the full review »

Out of the Shadows should've remained in the shadows. How is that once the origin story is complete, the proceeding film is a mutating mess of leatherback sea turtle proportions? Character development is thrown out the window, with Bay thinking ou... Read the full review »

Alita: Battle Angel ambitiously falls from Zalem and lands in a trashy mess. James Cameron is a household name. Attach his name to any project and audiences will flock to see it so that they can be visually assaulted with state-of-the-art effects.... Read the full review »

[Rec] 3 Genesis ironically is one of the most forgettable weddings. Church bells are ringing, everyone is dancing and oh look, infected family members are trying to bite the bride! They say that a marriage ceremony is one of the most important, un... Read the full review »
