The Legend of Tarzan is another Tarzan film. This time it's moody, serious and extremely engaging. I really liked this film! The moody atmosphere really suited well and appreciated it. Alexander Skarsgard physically fits the role and gives a great... Read the full review »

Quantum of Solace is a first direct sequel. Problem is that it's a direct sequel to a masterpiece. Credit where credit is due though, this has all the elements a Bond film requires. Suave sophisticated Bond? Check. Feisty Bond girl and/or Bond gir... Read the full review »

Hunt for the Wilderpeople is warm, hearty and just damn feel-good. Indie films are hit or miss for me, fortunately this is a massive hit. It's not everyday you find a film that is technically well presented and emotionally captivating. Sam Neill's... Read the full review »

Forrest Gump is legendary in the world of film. There is no better word. Everything about it is perfect. Tom Hanks, Robin Wright, Robert Zemeckis' direction, the story, the narrative, the soundtrack, the memorable characters and quotes. I don't ne... Read the full review »

Now You See Me 2 definitely ups the magical antics compared to its predecessor. However this is also a detriment to itself. The majority of the cast members return, except Isla Fisher is replaced with Lizzy Caplan (who I thought was far more chari... Read the full review »

The Boss fails to be a comedy. I counted one smile, I didn't laugh once. Having said that, it's not the worst 99 minutes ever. Some scenes were fun like the cookie girl showdown. Peter Dinklage was just over-the-top great and Kristen Bell tried he... Read the full review »

The Angry Birds Movie is as good as it has any right to be. It's obvious this was a money making animation that was feeding off the success of the mobile game that everyone played. Does that make it necessarily good? I actually enjoyed this more t... Read the full review »

Poltergeist is one of the most famous horror films of all time. Consistently referenced in pop culture and has even had its own remake (which isn't great...). This however, is a great family drama with horror elements. Strictly speaking I wasn't s... Read the full review »

Alien Covenant is a mess. Urghhhh I'm so frustrated with this. It has so many glimpses of excellence and genuine fear, but there are too many issues that I just could not ignore. Without a doubt the strongest attribute is Michael Fassbender giving... Read the full review »

King Arthur Legend of the Sword was the attempted start of a franchise. A franchise that I can definitely say will not continue. This film was not good, it was completely mediocre. Let's start with the positives, Jude Law and Charlie Hunnam. Both... Read the full review »

Thelma & Louise is THE road trip film. Two women are caught up in a crime and are on the run from the police across America. This is a difficult film to categorise, it has both serious and comedic elements. But what is prevalent is the underlying... Read the full review »

Miss Sloane is in a niche of films I personally love: political thrillers. This is all about gun lobbying, and fortunately this was released at quite a relevant time with gun crimes increasing every year. As the story progresses, the plot loses cr... Read the full review »

Maggie (2015)

6 / 10
Maggie is an interesting zombie drama. This is not a horror film, I repeat, not a horror. Instead what we get is a rather thought provoking drama about a father and his recently infected daughter who will soon turn into a "zombie like"...thing. Wh... Read the full review »

The English Patient is pure class. Ooooh yes this is extremely well crafted. The stunning backdrops, the production design, the musical score...all beautiful. Acting was also superb, Ralph Fiennes stole every scene and Juliette Binoche was outstan... Read the full review »

Texas Killing Fields is a mediocre crime film. Mediocre in the sense that nothing is memorable and the cast members are just functional. Seriously there are no stand out performances, even the magnificent Jessica Chastain is severely underused whi... Read the full review »

Transporter Refuelled is an attempt to reboot the franchise. Can a new lead actor rejuvenate the series? No. Although Ed Skrein fits the role perfectly, Jason Statham he is not. Whilst this is marginally better than the third instalment, it still... Read the full review »
