Snitch (2013)

Snitch (2013)

6 / 10
Snitch tackles the subject of the current war on drugs but stumbles in basic storytelling. The poster and marketing made you believe this was an action film, they were wrong. You thought there would be enough thrills to have this classed as a thri... Read the full review »

Catch Me If You Can is a classic cat-and-mouse chase that feels refreshingly whimsical. Spielberg is damn versatile. He is able to craft some of cinema's hard hitting dramas (Schindler's List), biggest blockbusters (Jurassic Park) and child-friend... Read the full review »

Road to Perdition is a classy, powerfully performed and compelling gangster crime thriller. How do you make a depression era American gangster mob crime drama thriller (and breathe...) look visually arresting? You bring in Sam Mendes. No one else... Read the full review »

The Deer Hunter is like fine wine, the more it ages the sweeter it tastes. And boy has this aged incredibly well! 1978 and still utterly gripping and compelling. Is it a masterpiece? No. However to conceive something so bold, daring and powerful i... Read the full review »

Pokémon The Movie 2000 tries to capture the grandiose of its predecessor, but doesn't quite reach that level. Ultimately this review will be somewhat biased, as a massive fan of the franchise I will always have a soft spot for these films. Howeve... Read the full review »

The Night Before follows the current tradition of a Christmas party comedy, except this one is just as bland as the others. Really? Why? Why must we have these every year? We've seen one, therefore we've seen them all. This time around we follow t... Read the full review »

Bone Tomahawk substitutes traditional western genre tropes for plenty of gore. Now y'all know westerns are my least favourite type of film. I find them slow, monotonous, boring and unmemorable. They just don't appeal to me. Suffice to say, I am pl... Read the full review »

Audition, so far, is the only film to make me genuinely feel nauseous. I've seen a few J-horrors to know that the genre is filled with some sick and twisted entries. But honestly, not seen anything quite like this. A widow attempts to find a wife... Read the full review »

Cast Away shows that we yearn to survive, not for ourselves, but for love. A classic shipwreck tale that is flipped into a love story. This isn't just about surviving a deserted island with limited resources. No! It's about testing our limitations... Read the full review »

Jersey Boys works as a drama, but as a musical it fails. A slight misfire from Clint Eastwood who has directed some excellent films. Don't get me wrong, this was incredibly watchable...just uninspired. Based on the life of Frankie Valli, it is the... Read the full review »

Retreat utilises solidarity and paranoia to create a nice little thriller, if somewhat forgettable. Residing on a remote island for peace and quiet, a couple are interrupted by a stranger who claims that a virus has been unleashed. He attempts to... Read the full review »

Stalker is pure philosophy conveyed in the medium of film. What an incredibly heavy experience this was. It made me question myself, humanity and our world. Honestly, I've not seen anything like this. Absurdly ethereal and existential. Set in a dy... Read the full review »

Pokémon The First Movie is the catalyst that releases my inner nostalgia. I completely understand that this film is not particularly intelligent or compelling. However, the TV series never was either. And to this day, I still believe that this fi... Read the full review »

Blade Runner 2049 proves that good things really do come to those who wait. 35 years since Ridley Scott's Blade Runner was released and slowly but surely a fan base was building. A cult following with many stating it is the best sci-fi film ever c... Read the full review »

Labyrinth is a magical, fantastical and damn right bonkers adventure. This is what happens when you let Jim Henson make a film. His imagination runs wild and we are left with possibly the weirdest yet most creative film I've ever seen. An over ima... Read the full review »

The Light Between Oceans is epic, both in its romanticism and the overabundance of melodrama. There are many moments of sweetness that will make you smile as you wipe away a tear or two (not me...I'm dead inside). But for the most part it's depres... Read the full review »

The Untouchables is good old fashioned gangster fun. Harking back to those classic films where henchmen are firing tommy guns on the streets of Prohibition-era America. There are loads of films depicting this time in history, but not all of them a... Read the full review »
