Mortal Engines immediately breaks down but eventually picks up a speed boost. Adapted from Reeve's YA steampunk novel, "Mad Max's Moving Castle" is a visual splendour. Packing mechanical rhythms throughout the mobile empire of London and building... Read the full review »

Sorry To Bother You called me with its "white voice" and analysed capitalism. Weird. Just plain weird. Absurdist fiction has never been so thematically involving and unconventional, until now. There's so much to unravel, so much to absorb, that on... Read the full review »

American Pie The Wedding has its thinly crusted comedy half baked. It's not so much a pie anymore, but more of a wedding cake. A three-tiered cake covered in raunchy icing, two plastic characters and a moist filling. The original and its sequel we... Read the full review »

War (2007)

War (2007)

4 / 10
War might just be the most generic battle to ever be conceived. Triads vs. Yakuza. Set in San Francisco. With a British Statham attempting to be American. And Guzmán's unnecessary involvement to add that little mix of Puerto Rican spice. Should'v... Read the full review »

Creed II packs a punch and retains its heavyweight champion belt. The 'Rocky' franchise has spanned many decades, bolstering brutal fist fights and acclaimed scenes of cinematic showmanship. Much like its predecessor, this sequel eloquently balanc... Read the full review »

Contact creatively communicates faith through science and mathematics. A universal language that transcends both time and space. One that enables any civilisation to communicate with another. Sure, colossal radars and technological innovations are... Read the full review »

X-Men 2 packs twice the amount of adamantium to make a stronger sequel. Bigger, better, bolder and quite simply brilliant. Not only is this the best 'X-Men' instalment, and yes I'm controversially including 'Logan' as well, but one of the best sup... Read the full review »

Contagion is as brisk as a sneeze but less hostile than a cough. A disaster film like no ever. Replacing CGI extreme weathering and aimless zombies for a far more intellectual affair. The common cold. Yes, the mysophobic may wish to look away in f... Read the full review »

Ralph Breaks The Internet wrecks its way into the 21st Century. Gone are the days of retro 8-bit arcade games, Ralph has catapulted himself into the Internet. It's rare for a sequel to surpass the original, so I'm starting off bold by saying this... Read the full review »

Drive Angry is too reckless for its own good. Grindhouse. A sub-genre unfamiliar to me. Muscle cars, B-movie violence, satanism and acting so bad that it starts to corrupt your mind into thinking it's good. Drive Angry clearly takes the grungy nat... Read the full review »

The Last Airbender bends a variety of elements and your patience until it breaks. I'm not one for jumping on the bandwagon, especially for films that are universally detested. I like to think there are redeemable qualities even in the largest pile... Read the full review »

Push (2009)

Push (2009)

5 / 10
Push ironically pushes you away from its hyperactive style. A superhero film with a directing style that emulates the frenetic energy of Boyle. McGuigan's Push is all style and no substance, which frustrates me. It had the ability to explore its p... Read the full review »

Steamboat Willie chugs along with whistling musicality and mousy antics. This was it. The conceptualisation of Walt Disney's mascot. His greatest creation. His pioneering anthropomorphic mouse, Mickey. Excluding 'Plane Crazy', this was his first o... Read the full review »

Arthur Christmas had me ho-ho-howling with laughter. There I was expecting an uninspired Christmas animation from Sony and Aardman, and suddenly Christmas comes early with this nicely wrapped film that makes you joyous right from the start. Drink... Read the full review »

The Girl in the Spider's Web is unable to stand up on all eight legs. After the Swedish 'Millennium' trilogy and Fincher's edgy adaptation of the original, Sony have opted to reboot the franchise instead of adapting the second book. That's all wel... Read the full review »

Wild Card gambles its drama for pointless action. Just when I thought Statham was choosing better roles as he got older and more experienced, he still settles for annoyingly dull rubbish like this. Now, that might sound harsh, but there was potent... Read the full review »
