Boy Erased sharply paints an individual's turmoil between sexuality and beliefs. This film made me angry. I was slowly being enveloped by this wave of frustration, an irritant caused by some of the very worst that humanity has to offer. For a film... Read the full review »

20 Feet From Stardom allows various backup singers to step into the spotlight. Ever wondered why some of the greatest songs of all time sound harmoniously perfect? Simply answer: background singers. The perfect complement to lead singers that can... Read the full review »

Jiro Dreams of Sushi finely cuts through meaty themes of perfection and legacy. A documentary that, whilst does not chronicle an important or tragic event, remains gleefully optimistic with its masterful chef. Jiro is the oldest three-star Micheli... Read the full review »

The Act of Killing reenacts genocide whilst providing context to Indonesia's captive state. Oppenheimer didn't just produce a documentary, he created something almost entirely different. In all my years of watching films, I have never seen anythin... Read the full review »

The Lego Movie 2 is not as awesome as its predecessor, but is still relentlessly catchy. It seems Lord and Miller can do no wrong, even when they are not directing. This sequel to the surprisingly fresh original is a non-stop barrage of colours, p... Read the full review »

Boundin' bounces joyfully to a musically narrated story. Luckey not only directed this sweet little animation, but he also wrote it, narrated the script, provided a voice for the jackalope and composed the music. Suffice to say, Boundin' was his s... Read the full review »

Green Book drives along a smooth road with minimal narrative bumps. I'm going to start my review a little differently, addressing many criticisms about the racial issues that are "glossed over". Not every film has to be a harrowing depiction of se... Read the full review »

Sisters feels more like an over-extended SNL skit. Fey and Poehler are back. The dream duo of modern comedy that essentially reinvigorated 'Saturday Night Live', and with other female-centric comedies gaining great success ('Bridesmaids' in partic... Read the full review »

Velvet Buzzsaw attempts to creatively cut through contemporary commercialism but slices itself in half. The subjectivity of art is one that is often discussed amongst many people. Whilst someone might view a pile of newspapers on a wooden floor as... Read the full review »

16 Blocks goes on for eight blocks too long. Donner, the director behind 'Lethal Weapon', can make a buddy cop film like a child can draw a stickman. It is his bread and butter. The filling in this action dramatic sandwich though tastes like vanil... Read the full review »

War of the Worlds battles its way through family turmoil and extraterrestrial invaders. There was only one director that could adapt H.G. Wells' classic sci-fi novel and make it applicable for the current century. That man is Steven Spielberg. Not... Read the full review »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is definitely not "turtle-y" awesome. Whilst not directed by Michael Bay, his hand in the production team is clearly noticeable right from the first diagonal shot plagued with lens flares and...oh, would you look at th... Read the full review »

The Nightmare Before Christmas feels more like dark fantastical dream. A Christmas film disguised as a Halloween animation with the Easter Bunny tossed in for good measure. A holiday smorgasbord that is sure to frighten children with Burton's sign... Read the full review »

Final Destination 5 is five times familiar and five times "3D". As an individual that believes gimmicky 3D effects are just, well, unnecessary gimmicks, this fifth instalment purely focuses on blood, guts and eyes flying at your face. Whilst a ste... Read the full review »

Getaway is a title that should be taken literally. Go! Run away. Get as far away as you can. Don't succumb to this incoherent mess like I did, you all deserve better than that. A former race driver's wife is kidnapped to which he receives a phone... Read the full review »
