Brightburn is one caped guardian that does not burn brightly. This was always going to be divisive. Blending the common "Superman" archetype with a refreshing horror spin. Exploring the eternal question of "what if a superhero turned bad?". The an... Read the full review »

Sinister 2 was less frightening than Bughuul having a good ol' boogie with ghost children. Derrickson's original horror film was, much to everyone's dismay, an unexpected surprise for me. Sure some of the jump scares were insanely stupid (the lapt... Read the full review »

Poltergeist is one remake that should remain in its ancient burial ground. Why would someone choose to remake the fantastic original? It would be near impossible to replicate/improve on the Hooper, Spielberg and Goldsmith ethereal dream team. Both... Read the full review »

The Replacement clones various sci-fi concepts and titivates them through cinematic showmanship. Ever wondered what societal and ethical issues would crop up if cloning became mainstream? Well, this intricate blend of 'Blade Runner' and 'Surrogate... Read the full review »

Paranormal Activity 4 is essentially a product placement for Microsoft's Xbox Kinect. A horror film designed to showcase the motion-sensing peripheral by having a CGI demonic ghost blur some tracking dots occasionally. Aside from that minimal use... Read the full review »

Back to the Future Part III moves briskly along like tumbleweed but suffers from steam depletion. When many exclaim a sentence similarly to "bahhh the Wild West one is just stupid", naturally I enter the film with caution. But after the mess that... Read the full review »

Back to the Future Part II exhausts its fusion energy on an overstuffed and convoluted plot. Warning: unpopular opinion alert. Having just watched the sequel to the brilliantly energetic Back to the Future for the first time, whilst having a momen... Read the full review »

Back to the Future accelerates its time traveling nostalgic adventure to a whopping 88mph. Great Scott! Finally managed to watch the quintessential 80s flick that combines a plethora of genres to generate an astounding 1.21 gigawatts. Enough to ma... Read the full review »

Men in Black International had me wanting to be neuralysed over and over again. I can’t. I physically have so much rage within me after watching this, that I’m struggling to keep myself together for the betterment of this review. I’m done. T... Read the full review »

The Hills Have Eyes veers off the road and into a dusty narrative landscape. Having watched Aja's remake a good few times, I felt obliged to watch Craven's cult classic for the first time. Y'know, so I can compare and see how identical the remake... Read the full review »

Justice seeks out equity and morality but instead is guilty of being criminally boring. Nicolas Cage. My man. What happened? You had such a good career, and now you'll do anything for a pay cheque. Including this dribbling mess of a thriller. A hi... Read the full review »

Kick-Ass 2 puts the "ass" in "sucks-ass". Vaughn settled for producing credits, Carrey famously withdrew from supporting the film due to its depiction of violence (yet seemingly filmed a fight scene or two...) and Taylor-Johnson is now a beefcake.... Read the full review »

The Spy Who Shagged Me is as "shagadelic" as a distastefully leopard patterned van used for cruising. Yeah baby, yeah? No baby, no! The sequel to Myers’ international hit, that relished in spoofing popularised spy films, is as groovy as a freque... Read the full review »

Dark Phoenix unleashes its messy, often incoherent but entertaining fire in all its finality. Twelve films. Two decades. Nearly the entirety of Hollywood's A-list actors. All to climatically end on the re-telling of the epic Dark Phoenix saga. How... Read the full review »

4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days harrowingly tests how far one is willing to go for a friend. Immediately I must confess two statements. Firstly, this will be the most challenging review I've ever written due to the subject matter in hand. Secondly, t... Read the full review »

Scooby Doo! Stage Fright! acts out all of the formulaic mystery solving antics in an operatic talent show. Jinkies! It's a cartoon adaptation of 'Phantom of the Opera' with a cynical, yet often rather humorous, perspective on talent shows. You sur... Read the full review »

The Crazies maddeningly spreads its atrocious editing like a virus. Having seen the remake a fair few times and coming to the conclusion that it's actually pretty decent, I wanted to equip my gas mask once more and dive into the original. I find i... Read the full review »
