Taken 2 seeks for vengeance by succumbing to sheer unnecessary stupidity. Paris was a no go. Istanbul was next! Eventually, Bryan Mills will end European tourism. Any successful film just cannot be left alone these days. Sequels, prequels and rema... Read the full review »

Midsommar brightly dances through fields of tulips to create an unsettling depiction of emasculation. "That was a waste of time" muttered the viewers behind me. "What on earth is going on?" laughed the friends in front of me. "That was hilarious!"... Read the full review »

Spider-Man: Far From Home swings from New York to Europe through floundering webs of exposition. Superhero fatigue is really kicking into full gear now, and not even my "Peter-Tingle" can avoid such a fate. I enjoyed 'Homecoming'. It had its flaws... Read the full review »

Pixels (2015)

Pixels (2015)

2 / 10
Pixels mishandles nostalgia whilst harnessing the memorability of a dusty arcade machine. As a video gamer myself, my childhood was in the midst of this iconic cultural movement. Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Galaga, Donkey Kong and of course Tetris. S... Read the full review »

Gigli (2003)

Gigli (2003)

1 / 10
Gigli gobbled up its romcom promise as if it was "turkey time". Oh boy. I'm questioning my life choices right now. To say that Gigli, sorry I mean "Jee-lee" if we're being pretentious, is a romantic comedy is the equivalent of stating that chlamyd... Read the full review »

Taken (2008)

Taken (2008)

7 / 10
Taken called up the European tourism board and left one sinister voice mail. Iconic. This generic action thriller is your typical run-of-the-(Bryan)mill(s) situation. Father desires to have a better relationship with his daughter, but unfortunatel... Read the full review »

Apollo 11 launches to the Moon in technical perfection. Documentaries can be very mechanical and overfamiliar with its editing structure. Interviews, sentimentality and archival footage used for elaborating backgrounds. And with last year's flawle... Read the full review »

The Haunting in Connecticut gives the state a bad name for itself. Y'know, whenever a film shoves the words "Based on a true story." immediately in your face, nine times out of ten it's going to be a load of ectoplasmic ejaculate. Did I watch the... Read the full review »

Child's Play entertainingly catapults a mechanical Chucky to the Internet era. As with most modern unnecessary remakes of classic horror slashers (and trust me, there are far too many of them), I sat down in my seat with the lowest of expectations... Read the full review »

Delivery Man is all jizz and not enough spunk. A situational comedy-drama that Hollywood grabbed their hands on in order to appeal to the masses. Yet here is Vaughn appearing in a shot-for-shot remake, this time of the French-Canadian comedy 'Star... Read the full review »

Child's Play turns an innocent doll into a menacing foul-mouthed serial killer. Ahhh, Chucky. How I've never seen your debut film until now baffles me. A legendary face in the slasher genre, Chucky had always found itself in the mainstream despite... Read the full review »

Ferris Bueller's Day Off joyously shows that perhaps we should all pull a sickie occasionally. As with many classics which have been circulating around the historical presence of cinema, it's stupendously easy to be intimidated by a specific film.... Read the full review »

Monsters Dark Continent monstrously destroys the thematic intelligence of its predecessor. Edwards' surprise debut 'Monsters' was a feature that, despite my reserved rating, had layers upon layers of contemporary purpose. The resemblance between e... Read the full review »

Hop (2011)

Hop (2011)

2 / 10
Hop is better off being butchered, making a nice rabbit stew. I woke up this Saturday morning thinking "let's put on a nice mediocre animation". An easy and pleasant watch, that's all I wanted. Naturally, I didn't even get that! How difficult is i... Read the full review »

Toy Story 4 is packed with heartwarming fluff pulling at your voice string. With the third instalment wrapping events up more neatly that Bo Peep's glistening china complexion, and causing grown adults to weep uncontrollably, many will approach th... Read the full review »
