The Girl With All The Gifts is a prime example why British zombie films are the best. When you compare something like 28 Days Later to World War Z, the former is head and shoulders above the latter. There is something about the backdrop of England... Read the full review »

A Most Wanted Man is yet another mature spy thriller based on a John Le Carré novel. I struggled with Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy but really enjoyed Our Kind Of Traitor. I'm on the fence with this one. There is no denying that this is a well execut... Read the full review »

Dunkirk is a visceral, sensory and rapid war experience that shows brutality and heroism in technical excellence. When it comes to directing, Christopher Nolan is technically flawless. He has garnered such a prestige (see what I did there) that au... Read the full review »

The Raid is the Indonesian version of Dredd. I know this was released first but I couldn't get it out of my head! We follow a SWAT team who raid an apartment block in order to capture Pa-Pa, but the Pa-Pa clan aren't going to make it easy...(ok fi... Read the full review »

Full Metal Jacket is not just about war, but rather the psychology behind it. A smart move from the legend that was Stanley Kubrick. We've all seen many war films, a genre that is well explored from a variety of different conflicts. Full Metal Jac... Read the full review »

Despicable Me 3 is where I draw the line. No more, please. This was barely passable. It's a tired franchise that did well and we all enjoyed it to begin with but my God you don't need to wring it the flop out! Illumination clearly just want to mak... Read the full review »

The Boxtrolls is Laika's weakest animation, but still an enjoyable flick. When I say it's the weakest, it's not a negative remark because Laika have been pumping out consistently good animations that are enjoyable for everyone. This is no differen... Read the full review »

War for the Planet of the Apes has restored my faith in 2017. Just when I thought no blockbuster would be worthy of a perfect rating, this beauty comes along and proves me wrong. Oh. My. Word. This was absolutely phenomenal. Flawless in terms of t... Read the full review »

Hero (2002)

Hero (2002)

9 / 10
Hero is a visually arresting martial arts classic. It's not often I say "classic" for this genre, there are certain milestones. Much like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon back in 2000, Hero became popular in western audiences due to its easy accessi... Read the full review »

Safe House is a well acted action thriller. I mean if you are going to bring in Ryan Reynolds, Denzel Washington, Brendan Gleeson and Vera Farmiga...you're pretty much halfway to making a good film. Yet somehow this still fell short from being gre... Read the full review »

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is a "comedy" that just feels tired. Everything here has been done before pretty much and to a better standard. Just a lazy attempt to get some money. Mike and Dave have been ordered to find dates before going to t... Read the full review »

Spiderman: Homecoming fulfils what the fans desired all this time, to have Spiderman in the Avengers. Oh, and to also make a damn decent iteration of Spiderman for the big screen. Was never a fan of the Raimi trilogy, Tobey Maguire didn't work for... Read the full review »

22 Jump Street is not as good as its predecessor, but it's ever so close! This was SO much fun to watch. Screw writing a review, the soundtrack just makes me want to throw a party right now. Seriously downloading that shizz immediately. In this se... Read the full review »

It Comes At Night is moody, atmospheric, tense...and one of the best of 2017. The film ended and someone shouted "that was the worst film I've seen!" and I tried my hardest not to say anything back to the stupid woman. In an age of remakes, sequel... Read the full review »
