The LEGO Batman Movie is pretty much what you would expect it to be. Barrels of fun, thoroughly entertaining and full of comic relief. If you watched The LEGO Movie and thought "Damn, Batman was so funny he should be in his own film"...well, your... Read the full review »

Princess Mononoke is Miyazaki's masterpiece. I've found it, I've finally found it. Studio Ghibli's magnum opus. The greatest anime feature film I've ever seen. Possibly the best fantasy film I've seen as well. This, this is absolutely incredible.... Read the full review »

Million Dollar Baby might seem like a formulaic sports film, but its core is full of emotion. Sweet Jesus this was depressing. Like I'm talking soul destroying. The little tiny bit of happiness and glory is absolutely annihilated by the tragic thi... Read the full review »

The Descent: Part 2 somehow makes its predecessor look like a horror masterpiece. What happened here!? So for some reason, we have ourselves a sequel. Did we need one? No, not at all. But here we are. Sarah escaped the caves of doom, and is found... Read the full review »

Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a genius concept that delivers an incredibly entertaining film. Is this strictly a children's film? No. Is this a typical adult orientated flick? No. It's in that niche area where everyone of all ages can find enjoyment... Read the full review »

The Living Daylights is a serious iteration of the Bond character we all know and love. Timothy Dalton's debut was met with some criticism calling him too serious and lacking the campy fun that its predecessors pioneered. Whilst I agree, I can har... Read the full review »

Logan Lucky is a lighthearted, fun and, most importantly, entertaining comedic heist. Sometimes it's good just to sit back, relax and enjoy some silly antics on screen. Fortunately, a welcome return from Steven Soderbergh allows us to have a good... Read the full review »

Ran (1985)

Ran (1985)

9 / 10
Ran is Akira Kurosawa's last epic. The man was a genius when it came to directing these long Japanese war epics and Ran is no different. This is Kurosawa's interpretation of Shakespeare's King Lear, a play that unfortunately I did not study. The p... Read the full review »

The Descent is the very definition of claustrophobic horror. Trust me when I say this, it will make you think twice about setting foot into a cave. We follow a group of British women who decide to explore a famous cave system in America. Problem i... Read the full review »

Detroit is yet another hard hitting factual based drama from Kathryn Bigelow. I'm starting to fall in love with her. Zero Dark Thirty is one of the best films of this century and does not get enough credit. Detroit, although not in that league, is... Read the full review »

A Nightmare On Elm Street is one of the most influential horror films from the 80s. It's fame and popularity managed to spawn an entire franchise, ludicrous amounts of pop culture references and I'm sure a massive sale in gloves with knives as fi... Read the full review »

Unbreakable proves you do not need flashy effects to produce a compelling superhero story. Shyamalan has had a rough career, with most (including myself) believing he has progressively got worse as a director. He has somewhat got back on track wit... Read the full review »

The Evil Dead is possibly the craziest horror film I've seen. If someone asked me "Luke, describe in 400 words what happens in The Evil Dead"...I would probably struggle. Basic plot is basic. Group of teenagers go to remote cabin in woods, discove... Read the full review »

Moneyball isn't focussed on just playing Baseball but instead the inner workings of building the greatest team. Hundreds of sports films, hundreds of them. Pretty sure Hollywood has tackled every type of sport, including Baseball several times ove... Read the full review »
