Oblivion is, personally, one of my favourite modern sci-fi films. Honestly, I do believe this is supremely underrated. Now I know I will be in the minority with my opinion, and that's perfectly fine. After all, I gave "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" a s... Read the full review »

The Maze Runner is a confident start to another YA franchise. You might be getting sick to death with these YA universes, but guess what? You just got another one. Fortunately though, this is more "The Hunger Games" than "Divergent" in terms of qu... Read the full review »

Trainspotting 2 is a competent and nostalgic fuelled sequel that feels slightly underwhelming. Having only watch the original for the first time this year, it's safe to say I'm not part of the cult following. Having said that, I really enjoyed it... Read the full review »

Everest is a beautiful disaster. The perfect oxymoron to describe the grandeur of the tallest mountain on Earth, and the tragic expedition that occurred in 1996. Due to the overwhelming number of tourists and expeditions at the time, the camps an... Read the full review »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into an overstuffed mess. I have to applaud Sony for their ambition, I mean you can literally see that they wanted to create a reinvigorated Spider-Man franchise so badly. It oozes exposition and universe building t... Read the full review »

American Gangster may not be The Godfather but it is just as engrossing at times. Ridley Scott does like to tackle a variety of genres and topics, from classic sci-fi to religious epics. Now he has put the eternal battle for drug enforcement under... Read the full review »

Non-Stop may not be as relentless as its title suggests, but it is undeniably entertaining. I despise the title of this film. Automatically brings out connotations of blandness and genericness, kind of like a Straight-To-DVD low budget action film... Read the full review »

The Princess Bride is, inconceivably, a tale filled with pure fantasy. Not what I thought it was going to be. In my mind I thought it would be a proper Shakespearean fantasy, y'know the whole "thou shall not kiss thy lips". That kinda thing. Then... Read the full review »

The Polar Express, despite all of its technicalities, is a whimsical bland adventure. Claimed to be the first full digitally captured motion picture, it was one of the most expensive animated features at the time. Giving such a daring project to a... Read the full review »

The Red Turtle is visual storytelling at its finest. I've not seen many films that have little to no dialogue, and immediately this reminded me of 'All Is Lost'. An international co-production between Wild Bunch and Studio Ghibli, this is simply a... Read the full review »

Paddington 2 is just a bundle of joy wrapped around a fluffy bow of niceness. Awwww. Such warmth. Such heart. Such joy. Its predecessor took me by surprise and is an excellent British family flick. Here we are, with a sequel that I didn't see comi... Read the full review »

The Founder showcases how greed lurks behind ambition. I'm sure we've all eaten at a McDonald's before, the biggest fast food franchise on the globe. It wouldn't surprise me if we get a branch on the moon in the next few years. But do you really k... Read the full review »

Oculus (2014)

Oculus (2014)

7 / 10
Oculus is an illusory mind-bending horror that may leave some scratching their heads. This is easily one of the most overlooked horror films of the decade, without a doubt. This extrasensory experience just leaves me looking on into the horizon wi... Read the full review »

Justice League is, unfortunately, plagued with post-production issues. Here we are. The Justice League. DC's greatest superheroes come together to save the world...and what is the first scene you ask? Henry Cavill's CGI'd shaved face. Ohhh dear...... Read the full review »

The Thing is inferior in every aspect compared to Carpenter's 1982 cult classic. I've not seen all of Carpenter's version (although I really, really want to) and I haven't considered watching the 1951 original. But, I've seen enough footage and kn... Read the full review »
