The Mule drives in the slow lane and nearly gets a flat tyre. This is a major step up from Eastwood's previous directorial efforts with the absurdly boring 'The 15:17 to Paris'. A cast of talented actors, including himself, and a premise that beco... Read the full review »

How To Train Your Dragon 2 packs twice the amount of emotion and beautifully rendered dragon scales. When I said the first film caught me off guard with its surprising amount of intensity. Well, its sequel may have just bested it. From epic large... Read the full review »

August: Osage County packs plenty of powerhouse performances that overwhelm its dysfunctional narrative. Written by Letts and adapted from his own play, this prestigious drama contains the same issues that I outlined in my review for 'Fences'. Som... Read the full review »

How To Train You Dragon tames its mythical beasts through fiery action and emotional heft. I've been putting this off for years, and for the life of me I have no idea why. Dreamworks are often hit and miss for me, but this beautifully touching ani... Read the full review »

Vice (2018)

Vice (2018)

4 / 10
Vice depicts the "world's most powerful man" through unsuccessful distractions. I've come to the conclusion that me and Adam McKay just aren't ever going to get along. We're not, we are incompatible. His dramatic efforts consistently fall short, w... Read the full review »

Paranormal Activity The Marked Ones unashamedly marked itself as one of the weakest. Did we need a spinoff? Was it necessary? The answer is quite simply no. But, in true low-budget franchise fashion, here we are. Stripping the entire essence of th... Read the full review »

Mary Queen of Scots delivers uneven historical thrills but with regal performances. Artistic licence, the distortion of facts and alteration of events, should only be used to change small details for dramatic purposes. When the whole film builds u... Read the full review »

The Armstrong Lie cycles around the pivotal question: "why?". For many, Lance Armstrong was a hero. A cancer survivor who pushed the boundaries and limitations of the human psyche. Winning seven Tour De France titles, garnering sponsorships and ob... Read the full review »

Glass (2019)

Glass (2019)

6 / 10
Glass surprisingly does not shatter into tiny shards of stupidity. Well, this may just be one of the most conflicting films I've watched for quite some time. For everything Shyamalan executes correctly, he also manages to mess something up. Much l... Read the full review »

Beautiful Boy captures the raw intensity of drug addiction and a beautiful family bond. "Once an addict, always an addict". A phrase I used to hear quite regularly, and one that I used to adhere to. The feeling of obsession or addiction is one tha... Read the full review »

Deadfall ambitiously balances characters but instead melts into nothing. A crime thriller, no matter the budget or onscreen talent, relies on a captivating script to pull in its audience. It requires sufficient character development to substantiat... Read the full review »

Foodfight is an absolute abomination and, to be honest, made me feel hungry. Oh sweet tuna potato chip butter raisin clean sauce! So, y'know I said recently that 'The Love Guru' was the worst film I've ever watched? Well, step aside because we hav... Read the full review »

BloodRayne soaks itself in thin, washable and extremely irritant blood. At that point in time, the master of direction that is Uwe Boll had already conceived two video game adaptations that were critically panned. His third attempt was no differen... Read the full review »

The Love Guru. For the first time ever, I cannot muster the strength to write a quirky introductory sentence. After a long arduous thought-process of approximately 12 minutes after the credits rolled, I came to the conclusion that The Love Guru is... Read the full review »

I Know Who Killed Me murdered itself with its baffling stigmatic plot. Right, so this isn't the worst film I've ever seen (you can now breathe a sigh of relief...). But when I say this "thriller" truly makes no sense, I mean it with the deepest sh... Read the full review »
