The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo feels colder than Swedish snow. The original 'Millennium' trilogy, native to Sweden, are decent adaptations of Larsson's novels and accessibly engrossing for global audiences. Fincher's American remake is a differen... Read the full review »

Vincent can only be described as "pure Tim Burton". If anyone has seen, heard or even thought about the gothic mastermind that is Burton, then you know exactly what you are letting yourself in for. His first short film, and Disney's second horror... Read the full review »

Batman & Robin is essentially a relentless blizzard of puns. How to describe the legendary status that Batman & Robin upholds? It's icy cool. It freezes the competition. It froze my heart (and my critical senses). An avalanche of God knows what to... Read the full review »

Suspiria gracefully dances atop the bloody supernatural roots that inspired it. Now, I've seen some visually shocking films that have mentally scarred me. And then I've seen some films that have physically distressed me with its content, numbing m... Read the full review »

The Crimes of Grindelwald committed the ultimate crime of being boring. Firstly, let me start by saying that I am a fan of the 'Wizarding World'. 'Harry Potter' is arguably my favourite franchise and, whilst there were issues, I did enjoy the firs... Read the full review »

The Internship searched for "Google" and found 3,692,755 results. My oh my, what a genuine surprise this was. There was me expecting an unfunny, uncharismatic and unimaginative comedy and, for the first half, was just that. But then it hit me. Thi... Read the full review »

The Forbidden Kingdom packs as much China as a kitchen cupboard. Seriously, it's like browsing the dining department in IKEA. Bamboo forests, warlords, witches using their white luscious hair as a whip and Jet Li as a cheeky monkey king. Boom! Anc... Read the full review »

X-Men (2000)

X-Men (2000)

6 / 10
X-Men claws it way as the catalyst for superhero mania. "Do you know what happens to a toad when it's struck by lightning? The same thing that happens to everything else.". Iconic. Simply groundbreaking. One could say it "kicked up a storm"..., I'... Read the full review »

REVISED REVIEW: This. This is probably the film that I defend the most. Apparently it doesn't follow the source material, with the ending catastrophically changed. A story that apparently should be buried and classed as one of the levels in Dante'... Read the full review »

Widows (2018)

Widows (2018)

9 / 10
Widows mourns for current societal politics. McQueen has had an outstanding filmography thus far. This time he partners up with Flynn, writer of 'Gone Girl', to adapt an 80s TV show. What should've been a disposable thriller is magnificently trans... Read the full review »

REVISED REVIEW: Oh I was most certainly a naive film buff, particularly when reading my atrocious first review for one of the weakest Bond films in the franchise. I essentially gave it a ridiculously excellent rating for the memorable action seque... Read the full review »

Cendrillion is whimsical in nature and more lavish than a glass slipper. The earliest known adaptation of Perrault's fairy tale. One of the first films to utilise multiple scenes. The first use of the "dissolve transition" technique. And the only... Read the full review »

The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest has enough sting to be a satisfying conclusion. Better. Much better. Alfredson has dealt with all the violence and plot building from its predecessor, and now is able to focus on conspiracy theories and courtr... Read the full review »

In Time ironically runs out of time. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the most frustrating film I've seen. Not once. Not twice. Oh no, I have witnessed this approximately ten times, in an attempt to ascertain what exactly is wrong with it. Safe to s... Read the full review »

Faces In The Crowd is overcrowded with clichés, dullness and a wasted concept. Yet another case of the old "good idea, bad execution", this psychological thriller may include some mental analysis but indefinitely lacks thrills. Come on Jovovich!... Read the full review »

Wreck-It Ralph wrecks your screen with vivid pixels, polygons and plenty of heart. Leave it to Disney to produce an animation hosting one of the largest character rosters all from different intellectual properties, and yet not concede to obvious p... Read the full review »
