The Road is the very definition of depressing. I literally did not smile once, my soul is drained and any happiness that resided in me has now been utterly decimated. Good lord this was bleak. In a post-apocalyptic future, mankind is on the brink... Read the full review »

O Brother, Where Art Thou is a rather unusual offbeat road picture that is somewhat entertaining. I'm not entirely sure how to review this flick. Don't get me wrong, it was enjoyable but something was missing that prevented this from being great.... Read the full review »

Shadow Dancer settles for realistic drama rather than exciting tension. Unfortunately, it does not always work. I find that the medium of film can be used to evoke an emotional connection, provide entertainment or a method of portraying art. Telev... Read the full review »

Friends with Benefits follows the standard rom-com formula but with a slight twist. The romance is pretty much diminished by the physical act of casual sexual intercourse. There is more sex in this than films like 50 Shades of Grey and Nymphomania... Read the full review »

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is bonkers, crazy and ridiculously fun. If you thought the first instalment was absurdly silly, well good luck with this one! Matthew Vaughn has taken the spy genre and turned it up by 9000. I'm talking a taxi that tran... Read the full review »

American Assassin is another generic "kill the terrorists" plot...but I really liked it. Action thrillers are my strawberry jam (strawberry because it's red...like blood...urgh whatever). Whether it's Liam Neeson kicking ass or Bruce Willis yippee... Read the full review »

Amadeus is a symphony fuelled by envy, lust and greed. Ohhh yes, the 180 minute behemoth that is Ama-flipping-deus! This is exactly what I wanted and more. A loud orchestral musical score, lavish period costume drama and outstanding performances.... Read the full review »

The Bone Collector is a dark gritty crime thriller that is rather underrated. An extremely overlooked film in my opinion. Yes, Se7en and Silence of the Lambs absolutely annihilate this, but for a 90's detective case it's rather compelling. This is... Read the full review »

Split (2017)

Split (2017)

6 / 10
Split continues Shyamalan's upward trend, but still not hitting greatness. Ahhhhhh I am so disappointed with this! I really wanted to love it, it ticks all the right boxes for a decent thriller. Yet somehow Shyamalan missed the mark. It's not bad,... Read the full review »

Boogie Nights tackles a rather bizarre industry, that being pornography. Can't say I've seen many theatrical released dramas about adult films, so this is new territory. Pornography is, obviously, very popular and this film showcases the rise of s... Read the full review »

Psycho (1960)

Psycho (1960)

9 / 10
Psycho not only shocked audiences, it defined the thriller genre. I don't think there has ever been a film more referenced than Psycho. The musical score, the shower scene, the memorable characters...heck, it's even spawned a TV series. Essentiall... Read the full review »

Bridesmaids is the pinnacle of modern comedy. Comedy not being my genre (at all!) I always go into one with extremely low expectations. I remember watching this for the first time and was blown away at how much it entertained me. I may have only l... Read the full review »

Free State of Jones is a well acted and produced film, if uninteresting and sluggish. Slavery, plantations and the fight for freedom are well documented and popular themes in many many films. 12 Years a Slave and Lincoln immediately spring to mind... Read the full review »

Apocalypse Now is a hallucinatory war epic that delves into the psychological corruption, albeit an overrated film. After watching this, I've probably seen all the classic war masterpieces so am able to compare and contrast with many variations. T... Read the full review »

"mother!" is an intimate and intrusive cinematic experience that you'll either love or hate. There is no question, this will polarise many. I honestly don't think there is a middle ground here. "mother!" is about a young woman married to an older... Read the full review »
