Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is the perfect adaptation of the graphic novels. It captured the absolute essence of the novels including its style, dialogue and geeky references. Heck, even the Universal logo was full of video game greatness. The Leg... Read the full review »

The Magnificent Seven is good old fashioned western fun. It's quite clear it harks back to old westerns (including the original film) in a great big ball of nostalgia. Problem is for me, it's already a genre I just don't resonate with. To start wi... Read the full review »

Mechanic Resurrection is boring. I'm not going to sugar coat this, the worst thing an action film can be is boring. A shame really, the first one was actually pretty decent but why did it need a sequel? Let's start with the positives. The exotic l... Read the full review »

Sunshine (2007)

Sunshine (2007)

10 / 10
Sunshine is, and always will be, truly outstanding. There are not enough superlatives and adjectives in the English dictionary to describe my adoration for this epic piece of cinema. Absolutely incredible, even after the fiftieth watch! The ensemb... Read the full review »

Pulp Fiction is a milestone in cinematic history. It truly is, I mean many cinephiles will place this in their top ten of all time. For me, whilst it is absolutely superb...I have two minor issues that prevent it from getting the perfect score. Pu... Read the full review »

xXx (2002)

xXx (2002)

5 / 10
xXx is a typical standard action movie. I'm talking explosions, gadgets, guns...problem is it's just a more hyper version of James Bond. Some may like that, I personally felt it to be unoriginal...yet still enjoyable. The stunt work is fantastic,... Read the full review »

UPDATED REVIEW: Harleyquinn The Movie, I mean Suicide Squad, is just bad. I'm sorry...actually I'm not sorry, this should've been miles better. I can only assume studio interference caused this to be a mess. The positives: I like the style, some n... Read the full review »

Mud (2013)

Mud (2013)

7 / 10
Mud is a drama that is quite overstuffed. By that, I mean there is a lot going on during its 130 minutes runtime, some scenes work better than others. Matthew McConaughey plays a man only known to us as Mud, on the run (I won't spoil why) and is t... Read the full review »

The Hunt (2012)

The Hunt (2012)

10 / 10
The Hunt is bleak, tense and most importantly outstanding. Oh yes, my first Danish film and I was completely blown away. This is the disturbing depiction of how a lie can quickly become truth, testing the powers of forgiveness. I cannot find a sin... Read the full review »

Hot Fuzz (2007)

Hot Fuzz (2007)

10 / 10
Hot Fuzz is utter perfection. It's one of those films I watch annually just because I want a good time. This is by far my favourite comedy and my favourite British film. Acting is solid, Simon Pegg plays a serious policeman officer (see what I did... Read the full review »

The Adjustment Bureau is absolutely frustrating. Firstly what genre even is this? Romance? Sci-Fi? Thriller? This has all the right ingredients but unfortunately what we get is one of the most forceful plots ever. Let me start off by saying Emily... Read the full review »

The Lost Boys is a vampire film aimed for teenagers. Remove most of the horror elements and you are left with an entertaining, camp and rather predictable 80's cult classic. There were many things I liked, and some elements I rather did not like.... Read the full review »

Blue Valentine is the depressing journey of a couple falling out of love. If you were hoping for a fun romance with a happy ending, watch a chick flick or something. This is a mature adult drama. Both Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams prove that... Read the full review »

The Assassin is not for your typical moviegoer. This is pure Arthouse with a hint of Wuxia so if you were hoping for lots of martial arts you will be disappointed. What we are presented with is an aesthetically stunning piece of cinema. Director H... Read the full review »

Fight Club...what did I just watch? I can't tell if this is flipping weird for the sake of it or just utter genius. Not only that, but reviewing this without spoilers will be difficult so let's give it a shot. The strength of the film is the direc... Read the full review »

Philadelphia was the first big budget film to tackle AIDS, a fairly recent disease that was discovered in the late 80's. It's an important subject that viewers needed to be aware of, thankfully this film deals with the issue with care and fragilit... Read the full review »
