Goldeneye (DA-DUNNNNNN) was Brosnan's first Bond film...and easily his best. After the Timothy Dalton era, we needed a more classical approach to the Bond franchise and this was it. Full of great action scene, witty dialogue and memorable characte... Read the full review »

A Most Violent Year just oozes sophistication. Ooooh just every camera shot is precise and technically excellent, J.C. Chandor is proving to be quite the director. This film is all about a family and their business, which happens to be hitting som... Read the full review »

Philomena is about an Irish woman trying to find her son who was taken away from her at a young age. This is an excellent drama with a great meaty role for Judi Dench who is exquisite. Her Irish accent is spot on and she is just delightful to watc... Read the full review »

Mad Max Fury Road...I can't. I can't even describe how much I adore this film. It's flawless. It's possibly one of the best action films ever made. Now I'm no fan boy of the series, but my word...urghhhhh this film!! I don't even care that the plo... Read the full review »

Submarine is a quirky coming of age comedy directed by Richard Ayoade (most famous for the incredible IT Crowd here in the UK). This is super quirky, very stylish and just so likeable! The characters are awkward (in a good way), they are relatable... Read the full review »

Logan (2017)

Logan (2017)

8 / 10
Logan is supposedly Hugh Jackman's last outing as Wolverine, a character he has been playing for 17 years. What a way to go out though!? He threw everything into this performance. As the films have progressed, the character has become more jaded a... Read the full review »

13 Hours is a war film directed by, prepare yourselves, Michael Bay. Yes, it has your typical Bay explosions with a ridiculous amount of sparks and firs, it has the many many many tilted camera angles...but no, there is no "hot chick". To be fair,... Read the full review »

Birdman (or the unexpected blah blah no one uses the full title) is all about a washed up actor trying to get back into the game and become relevant. I found this to be utterly compelling. I viewed it as a microcosm of Michael Keaton's actual care... Read the full review »

The Lady in the Van is a nice heartwarming British comedy drama. But that's all it is, it's just nice...nothing ground breaking here. Dame Maggie Smith is a delight as always and I thought Alex Jennings was also very good. Plenty of smiles, a few... Read the full review »

Black Swan...ohhhhhh Black Swan how I love thee. This film is ridiculously good, another great hit from Aronofsky! Everytime I watch this I'm completely entranced by Natalie Portman, her character slowly becoming corrupted as she chases perfection... Read the full review »

Brave (2012)

Brave (2012)

8 / 10
Brave is Pixar's most overlooked animation in my opinion. Not sure why this is not as memorable as the other films they've produced. Memorable characters? Check. Heartwarming storyline with comedy? Yup. A moral that children can learn (i.e. don't... Read the full review »

The Guest...I, I don't know what to say. There was me thinking it's about a nice man helping a family out, only for it to make a U-turn and say "Luke, you just got punked!" Wow! Ok without any spoilers (which is difficult), I can safely say go wat... Read the full review »

28 Days Later is not a horror. Sure it's an 18 rated film, and yes there are infected people. But deep down this is a drama regarding a few survivalists as they fight for their lives. Danny Boyle is ridiculously good when it comes to character bui... Read the full review »

28 Weeks Later is far superior to its predecessor but it's a completely different film. This is a horror. Again, it follows a group of survivalists but this film contains way more blood, infected civilians and jump scares (the good kind). The open... Read the full review »

Green Room shouldn't appeal to me. I hate "screamo" music, Neo-Nazis, gory films for the sake of being gory...but y'know I quite like this! It's one of those films that makes me think "what would I do in their situation?" and it definitely kept me... Read the full review »

Get Out (2017)

10 / 10
Get Out...has literally blown me away. Wow wow wow wow woooooow! Jordan Peele's debut? I mean really? The script he wrote was ridiculously clever, complete genius. The social contexts, racial stereotypes, political satire...it had it all! Both sca... Read the full review »

Trainspotting was groundbreaking in the 90's, both for British film and the choice of topic (although rather unconventional). To be honest, this has aged very well! I thought the characters were memorable with great performances all round. But wha... Read the full review »

Flight (2012)

7 / 10
Flight is an excellent character study on a pilot who saved the lives of many on a broken airplane...however all is not what it seems. Robert Zemeckis directed this, so you know it's going to be a good old fashioned story film and it certainly is.... Read the full review »

The Terminator (DUN DUN DA DUN DUN) is the beginning to one of the most famous sci fi franchises of all time. Quite rightly so, this was ground breaking for its time. The effects were great and you can tell it borrowed heavily on Blade Runner, the... Read the full review »

Jumper (2008)

Jumper could've been the start to a promising franchise, I mean teleporting to different locations facing enemies...it had potential. But this film fell short. I mean it's fine...just nothing great. Hayden Christensen is...Hayden Christensen. Jami... Read the full review »
