Invasion of the Body Snatchers is a rare example of how remakes equal their originals. Now, having never seen the 50s original and only seeing the modern remake 'The Invasion', I was sceptical about the acclaim this received. How many times can th... Read the full review »

Hotel Transylvania 2 doesn't learn from the mistakes of its predecessor. Well, we all knew this was going to turn into a ghoulish franchise. In this sequel, Dracula and the gang welcomes his grandson to the family. Adamant that he is more vampire... Read the full review »

The Forest should've been cut down and titled "There Used To Be A Forest, But We Butchered It". You all know I love Japan, their culture and their mythology. A horror film set in the infamous Aokigahara Forest where troubled individuals contemplat... Read the full review »

Hidden Figures intelligently uses racial and gender segregation to convey equality in an intellectual environment. I'm sure many of you didn't know who Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan or Mary Jackson were before watching this. And now that you... Read the full review »

Hotel Transylvania succumbs to typical modern animation downfalls that sucks the life out of the story. Sony's animations are usually hit and miss for me. Infuriatingly they all contain traits that really are destroying the genre. The story centre... Read the full review »

The Book of Life boasts visually stunning animation but lacks a consistently engaging story. Mexico's famous annual festivities marking "The Day of the Dead" is a time for reflection and remembrance. It's colourful, bright and visually striking, s... Read the full review »

The Bay takes a preachy environmental message and executes it intriguingly. To say this film is divisive is an understatement. Critics were positive, audiences not so much. Frustratingly, I sit precariously in the middle whilst tentatively teeteri... Read the full review »

Phantom Thread is a bombardment of cinematic showmanship. Probably once a year, I watch a film that overwhelms me. I feel pure elation when watching it, that I instantly grin and start to become emotionally attached to what's on screen. Ladies and... Read the full review »

Martha Marcy May Marlene details the psychological damage after being brainwashed. I really didn't know too much going into this, a rather unknown film that is infrequently discussed. To my surprise, I found this to be a resonating and haunting ex... Read the full review »

Lady Macbeth is a sumptuous tale filled with manipulation and promiscuity. Well, I wasn't expecting that! A period drama I was told, a classy thriller I got. I can see why this deserves all the acclaim it received, it's absolutely stunning. A youn... Read the full review »

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk boasts impressive technical direction but suffers from dullness. It's sad to say, in my opinion, this was a misfire from Ang Lee. He is one of my favourite directors when it comes to metaphorical storytelling. So it... Read the full review »

Take Shelter creatively blends biblical analogies with schizophrenia for dramatic effect. This was a very interesting premise, and a film that I've had my eye on for quite some time. The husband to a loving family starts experiencing visions of an... Read the full review »

Hummingbird is a messy drama about redemption, but showcases one of Statham's best performances. I'm not the biggest fan of British crime dramas, especially those particularly depicting London...in fact I would say I'm not a fan at all. Purposeful... Read the full review »

Laputa: Castle in the Sky is a near perfect Ghibli debut from the master of anime himself. You know what, they just don't make adventure films like these anymore. I never get that sense of wonderment, awe or anything that stimulates my cerebral co... Read the full review »

Winchester is just another supernatural borefest. Like seriously, do we need another "ghosts are haunting this mansion, and so we must appease these spirits in order to save ourselves"? This sub-genre of horror films is utterly saturated, to the p... Read the full review »
