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 »

Christine is a harrowing character study that struggles to maintain viewer engagement. This is a study of Christine Chubbuck, a news reporter who took her own life live on TV. The inevitable scene where she attempts suicide was always going to be... Read the full review »

Rough Night is a comedy I should not have enjoyed...but I did. For those of you who follow my reviews or know me personally would know that I just don't like comedies. I hardly ever laugh, find them cringeworthy and would rather watch a depressing... Read the full review »

The Hitman's Bodyguard is a fun, entertaining and humorous popcorn film that lacks technical excellence. It does exactly what it sets out to do: entertain. Turn your brain off and enjoy what's on screen, no need to whip out a notepad and detail th... Read the full review »

The Monuments Men should've been interesting...it wasn't. Films set in World War Two are incredibly popular and the genre has become saturated. There is no room for mediocrity anymore. In comes George Clooney and his famous Hollywood friends to ad... Read the full review »

Jaws (1975)

Jaws (1975)

9 / 10
Jaws is the grandfather of the shark sub-genre. Some might say, it was one of the first major blockbusters to ever be released. The film that made audiences think twice about swimming in the sea. Being responsible for influencing many current dire... Read the full review »

An American Werewolf in London is a tonally inconsistent horror classic. The blurb says, and I quote: "One of the most gripping horror films of all time...with a touch of humour". The only thing gripping about this was the porn film that was shown... Read the full review »

Paterson is poetic in itself as much as it is about poetry. I found this to be an extremely captivating story. We observe a week in the middle of a man's life, a bus driver who utilises the medium of poetry to express him emotions. It's a story ab... Read the full review »

The Dark Tower is just wasted potential. When the source material is thick with interesting concepts and so beloved by fans, it makes me question why a studio would choose an amateur director to helm the adaptation. Why? It's just destined to be a... Read the full review »

**MY 300TH FILMFED REVIEW** Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie is a ball of confusion. Whilst the original had philosophical depth and an easier narrative to follow, this instalment of the Ghost in the Shell property removes all of that and focuses... Read the full review »

Untouchable (or Intouchables) is one of the most heartwarming, pleasant comedies I've seen in a long time. Damn, this has put me in a really happy mood...which is rare, trust me. One of the highest rated French films currently, Untouchable is the... Read the full review »

Fantastic Mr. Fox was not what I thought it was going to be. Looking at the front cover of the bluray, it looked to be cute, fun and super child friendly. It's fun, definitely. Cute? Sure. Super child friendly? No no no. Yes children can watch it... Read the full review »

Whiplash (2014)

Whiplash (2014)

10 / 10
Whiplash is a modern day masterpiece. I don't say that often, in fact...never. There aren't enough superlatives to describe the amazingness of Whiplash. Damien Chazelle crafted not just a tense dramatic piece of cinema, but a thematic experience w... Read the full review »

The BFG is just scrum-diddly-whiggly-whifflesnoggily-fine. It's not Steven Spielberg's finest film, I think we can all agree. I'm not sure it's a film that any of us wanted, hence the poor box office results. Anyway, in this adaptation our big fri... Read the full review »
