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)

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 »

Spy (2015)

Spy (2015)

7 / 10
Spy is a comedic approach to the spy genre. Heavily inspired by James Bond (even the opening credits) but multiplying the comedy by over 9000 (meme intended). It's hard not to find this enjoyable, even if the majority of the jokes fall flat. Melis... Read the full review »

The Pianist is harrowing. No question about it, it's on par with Schindler's List in terms of horrible imagery. I mean some of the executions were so bad I had to turn my head away. I think what made the film engrossing was the fact director Roman... Read the full review »

The Help is a hearty drama about racial segregation, a common theme for films particular those near Awards seasons. What makes this one different is that it's more watchable for families and is an easier watch for its calmer depiction on racism, w... Read the full review »

Heat (1995)

Heat (1995)

8 / 10
Heat is one heck of a classy crime thriller. What Michael Mann did here was set a bar for future crime films. Many might regard this as a classic, whilst it does keep me enthralled it unfortunately has some drawbacks. Firstly the acting is great,... Read the full review »

The Cabin in the Woods is genius. It deconstructs horror films to the bare bones. Whether you find it decisive or clever, is up to you...I for one found it refreshing. Harking back to classic horror and slasher films and turning it around. The blo... Read the full review »

A Perfect Getaway is a nice little thriller. Nothing new, nothing fantastic but utterly watchable. What makes this better than your average low budget thriller is the amount of character development. There's a lot of it so that we can decipher who... Read the full review »

Only God Forgives...I, I have no words. This film assaulted all of my senses and then some, like to the point where it was too much for me. The violence, the style, the bright red colours, the unlikeable characters, the musical score...I can only... Read the full review »

Kingsglaive Final Fantasy XV took me by surprise. I really really dug this film and was completely immersed. What helped was the state of the art photorealistic motion capture and animation, it looked absolutely gorgeous. I didn't think they could... Read the full review »

A Bigger Splash is an erotic psychological adult drama. There's something about this film that had me on edge. Whether it was Dakota Johnson's character, the pure jealousy within the group or the location itself...there was an underlying creepy to... Read the full review »

Terminator 3 is just one big mess. Most cinephiles say this is the start to the downfall of the franchise, and I would agree. Whilst some of the action scenes were enjoyable, particularly the car chase sequence, and Kristanna Loken looked badass a... Read the full review »

Jack the Giant Slayer is a slight twist to the infamous fairy tale. Jack now kills Giants. Ok maybe not on purpose and it's not his job or anything, but still. I'll go ahead and say it, this film is fine...just fine. Too many drawbacks and bad dec... Read the full review »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is just as good as its predecessor. I'm serious. This is actually the first film of 2017 where it felt fun, the tone was just perfect. Humour, although slightly forced at times, was excellently used both visually and in t... Read the full review »

The Place Beyond The Pines is a long crime drama. If a film's content is full of depth, detailed and worth telling then it justifies a long runtime. This film doesn't quite have enough. It does have plenty of great aspects. The cast is absolutely... Read the full review »
