Terminator 2 (DA DUN DUN DA DUNNNN) is an outstanding blockbuster. I mean the film just kept on giving! The CGI was revolutionary back in the early 90's and has aged well, the car chase scenes were filmed remarkably well and the acting was solid t... Read the full review »

Spirited Away is definitely more of a cinematic experience. The highest rated animation of all time, and I can see why. Beautiful landscape shots, the animation is simply stunning. The characters are memorable (particularly No Face...just creepy)... Read the full review »

Midnight Special harks back to classic sci-fi films but with a modern edgier feel. Plenty of mystery with multiple "what the heck was that about!?" moments. The great performances (particularly Michael Shannon) and the methodical direction makes t... Read the full review »

Big Eyes surprised me. It surprised me at how good Tim Burton can be minus all of the theatrics and darkness. He has actually made a good biographical film. Walter Keane is truly an evil person, stealing the credit of his wife's work. The flamboya... Read the full review »

Triple 9 has such an overwhelming cast, I mean seriously the acting chops that these actors have is just ridiculous. With films like these, it's hard to balance the screen time evenly but I thought the majority of them had a decent share. It was a... Read the full review »

Tron: Legacy is absolutely incredible. Seriously, I have seen this so many times. I love this film. I don't care what the haters say. The visuals, the soundtrack by Daft Punk, the cheesy acting and script! It all comes together to make a stupendou... Read the full review »

12 Years A Slave is a powerful piece of cinema. It resonates with me right the start. Not only is it powerful, but it's an extremely important film to watch. There have been many films like this before, it's nothing new. The difference with this,... Read the full review »

The Hundred-Foot Journey is a small niche of films that I like, films that focus on food. Much like Chef and Burnt, this light hearted romantic drama portrays cooking as a way of life, tradition and memories. The cast was good (albeit with slightl... Read the full review »

In The Heart Of The Sea was ravaged by critics, they just didn't like it. I typically disagree with critics, and I do so with this. I liked it! The characters were fleshed out, the story was well developed, the visuals were beautiful and the actin... Read the full review »

A Beautiful Mind is easily Russell Crowe's best dramatic performance. They don't make good dramas like these anymore. It's a complete story! We get the beginning of John Nash's life to his illness and then to his eventual winning of the Nobel Priz... Read the full review »

Prisoners is a masterpiece. It was the best thriller of the year of its release and is still my favourite Denis Villeneuve film. It's intense, it's brutal and the character development is so fleshed out that everyone becomes invested in both famil... Read the full review »

Suckerpunch is an exercise of style over substance. The visual flair and great action sequences disguise the fact that the plot of the film is incredible basic and nonsensical. The all female gang personifies girl power but it's Oscar Isaac who sh... Read the full review »

Saving Private Ryan is THE war film. It's the Spielberg WWII epic that everyone knows, everyone has seen and everyone loves. It will always be the ultimate snub at the Academy Awards (darn you Shakespeare In Love!). Successful war film recipe: Get... Read the full review »

Carol (2015)

Carol (2015)

9 / 10
Carol is rated, by MetaCritic, as the best film of 2015. Is it? Probably not. But damn, it's definitely in the top tier! Cate Blanchett was magnificent, the epitome of class. She owned every scene and I was entranced. The chemistry between her and... Read the full review »

The Great Gatsby is a film that gives us an insight to the rich and wealthy back in the 1920's. All I can say is the real star of the film is the production, woooooow does everything look good! The wild parties, the New York setting...Baz Luhrmann... Read the full review »

Zootropolis is Disney's best animated feature in many years. Sure they've been consistent but this is truly the first step to mature themes from a family film. Tackling social stereotypes, class segregation and bullying all in one and it was so re... Read the full review »

A Hologram for the King is one of Tom Hanks' lowest grossing films. It was fine. Well acted by Hanks (consistent as always) and well shot by Tom Tykwer, but something was missing. I honestly thought there was going to be a twist at the end. There... Read the full review »

The Martian was my most disappointing film of 2015. That's not to say it's bad, in fact it's a very good film. Matt Damon is great, the science and technology used is smart and Ridley Scott is back in business. My problem was, I had a vision. I en... Read the full review »

John Wick...Johnnnnnn Wick. The mere mention of his name sends shivers down people's spines, my spine however shakes with excitement. The film single handedly reinvigorated the action genre. The fight choreography and the "Gun Fu" (yes, it's Kung... Read the full review »
