A Good Day to Die Hard...what a mess! I'll start off by saying I appreciate the use of practical effects, the action scenes and the awesome slow motion shot of the helicopter crashing. But apart from that, this should not be in the Die Hard franch... Read the full review »

Fast & Furious 8 is ridiculous fun. I might go as far to say that it is...Ludacris (please, someone stop me). Ok seriously, this is so damn illogical, so unbelievably unrealistic that it bordered on the absurd. Having said that, I did enjoy this f... Read the full review »

Fargo (1996)

Fargo (1996)

8 / 10
Fargo has the surface of a crime thriller, but underneath it is a satirical black comedy. This film was successful, that it's started its own TV series recently, and for good reason...so many great characters boasted by a compelling script. France... Read the full review »

Nerve (2016)

Nerve (2016)

8 / 10
Nerve is one of those rare hidden gems. A film that isn't an adaptation, sequel, reboot or remake...it is original (to an extent). I loved the gimmick of being a watcher or player, it felt very relevant in today's society with social networking pa... Read the full review »

Lost in Translation...I'm lost for words. This film blew me away! Yes yes yes yes yes! My first Sofia Coppola film and I can safely say it's quite the masterpiece. The cast is charismatic, likeable and extremely relatable. Bill Murray nailed it, b... Read the full review »

Criminal was ravaged by critics. In fact, needless to say it didn't fare well at all so I was extremely apprehensive and filled with low expectations. This film is alright, it's fine. It's not terrible, but it's not great. Acting was serviceable a... Read the full review »

Deliver Us From Evil is ridiculously underrated. I'm sorry but I don't know what the critics watched, but it wasn't this. This was tense, full of suspense and had a nice gritty realism to it. The cast was great, Sean Harris was sinister and Eric B... Read the full review »

Twister screams 90's style. To the campy script, serviceable acting and questionable visual effects...this was one disaster movie that stuck me and is actually a guilty pleasure. The story is basic but behind this is the romance between our two le... Read the full review »

A Single Man is beautifully filmed. In fact, it's so close to sheer cinematic beauty that it's like watching art. The colour palette was great, contrasting the greyscale with some scenes in bright colours. Colin Firth once again brings his A game... Read the full review »

The Transporter is classic Statham action. This is, arguably, the film that put him on the action bandwagon. His acting skills are not particularly fantastic but he serves the purpose as a kick-ass action hero every time! Supporting cast were also... Read the full review »

The Artist isn't just a film, it's a cinematic experience. Oh yes, my first silent film and I enjoyed this immensely. The feel good factor, the classy production values and the close attention to the small details. It's got it all. Dujardin and Be... Read the full review »

The Belko Experiment is a gory social experiment. All about an office of 80 people having to undergo some tasks that will put their psychology and human nature to the test. Very intriguing film, easily a film that makes you think "what would I do... Read the full review »

Colombiana is a frustrating action film. It's frustrating because it's helmed by Olivier Megaton who is quite frankly one of my least favourite directors. His choppy editing style, half second jump cuts and the generic camerawork could turn any go... Read the full review »

Transporter 3 makes its predecessors look like masterpieces. Do you know why? Because they weren't directed by Olivier Megaton. Jason Statham is an action star, he performs excellent stunts and the fight choreography was good. Robert Knepper was a... Read the full review »

Misery (1990)

Misery (1990)

9 / 10
Misery showcases one of the best villains in movie history. Annie Wilkes is a complex character full of depth. She's portrayed as a psychopath who believes she is caring for her idol, but deep down I felt sympathy for her. As her past life is reve... Read the full review »

Set between Episodes III and IV, Rogue One is about the rebel alliance trying to steal the plans to the Death Star in order to try and win the war. Sounds like it would make for a pointless movie with such little substance and possibly boring...t... Read the full review »
