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 »

Black Hawk Down is a competent, confident and chaotic war film. It tells the true story of a raid in Mogadishu that lead to the first battle between the Somalian Militia and American Rangers. As the title suggests, a Black Hawk does indeed go down... Read the full review »

Anthropoid is one of those rare thrillers that actually educates viewers. The plot is based on the WWII operation to assassinate the Reich's third in command, Reinhard Heydrich. A group of Czechoslovakian soldiers chose to follow orders, a rather... 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 »

21 Jump Street is another film adaptation of an old TV show. Can we just appreciate the Tagline on the blu-ray cover: "The only thing getting blown tonight is their cover." It's poetry. For those of you who read my reviews know that I struggle wit... Read the full review »

Seven Samurai is possibly cinema's greatest accomplishment. This is one heck of a behemoth: 207 minute runtime, 1954, black and white, Japanese...it's not something where you can go "hmmmm yes let's watch that." You will need to want to watch this... Read the full review »

Alien: Resurrection is a pointless convoluted instalment to what was an excellent franchise. Honestly was there any need for this? It didn't further the story, didn't impress anyone and if anything is just the same old tired formula...but worse. F... Read the full review »

Lincoln is a historical biopic on one of the greatest presidents of all time. We follow him as he attempts to convince a bitterly divided government to abolish slavery by signing the thirteenth amendment to the constitution. An important segment o... Read the full review »

[Rec] 2 is an utter disappointment. I'm actually slightly annoyed as to how poorly executed this sequel is! Its predecessor is one of the scariest films ever, and yet somehow they managed to remove all of the scares and replaced them with bad edit... Read the full review »

Battle Royale is the brutal depiction of becoming an adult. It's a hyperbolic metaphor for independence, where school students start to venture out into the real world. Except for this class and this dystopian future, the students must fight to th... Read the full review »

[REC] (2007)

8 / 10
[Rec] can be best described in one word: hectic. I've seen this film a few times, I remember the first viewing and I literally couldn't make it the whole way through (I was a young teenager at the time, don't judge). Sure the scare factor has worn... Read the full review »

Aliens (1986)

9 / 10
Aliens substitutes pure horror for war...and it works so well. The original was masterful work so I was naturally apprehensive that a sequel may ruin the credibility of the first film, needless to say it does the opposite and actually cements the... Read the full review »

Pompeii is a volcanic abomination. Oh. My. Word. Why do I own this on bluray? In fact this is the ONLY bluray I regret purchasing. Let's start off the review positively: it's pretty to look at (if one considers the decimation of a city pretty) and... Read the full review »

The Exorcist is dubbed "The scariest film of all time". The question is, is it? Perhaps in 1973 it was, in more recent years it might be described as tame. Which ever you decide, you cannot deny that the imagery of the possession and exorcism will... Read the full review »

War Dogs is a smaller scale version of The Wolf of Wall Street. I literally couldn't get it out of my head whilst watching this, everything just seemed to imitate it. The freeze frames followed by narration, the clubbing scenes, the ludicrous acti... Read the full review »
