The Cabin in the Woods is genius. It deconstructs horror films to the bare bones. Whether you find it decisive or clever, is up to you...I for one found it refreshing. Harking back to classic horror and slasher films and turning it around. The blo... Read the full review »

A Perfect Getaway is a nice little thriller. Nothing new, nothing fantastic but utterly watchable. What makes this better than your average low budget thriller is the amount of character development. There's a lot of it so that we can decipher who... Read the full review »

Only God Forgives...I, I have no words. This film assaulted all of my senses and then some, like to the point where it was too much for me. The violence, the style, the bright red colours, the unlikeable characters, the musical score...I can only... Read the full review »

Kingsglaive Final Fantasy XV took me by surprise. I really really dug this film and was completely immersed. What helped was the state of the art photorealistic motion capture and animation, it looked absolutely gorgeous. I didn't think they could... Read the full review »

A Bigger Splash is an erotic psychological adult drama. There's something about this film that had me on edge. Whether it was Dakota Johnson's character, the pure jealousy within the group or the location itself...there was an underlying creepy to... Read the full review »

Terminator 3 is just one big mess. Most cinephiles say this is the start to the downfall of the franchise, and I would agree. Whilst some of the action scenes were enjoyable, particularly the car chase sequence, and Kristanna Loken looked badass a... Read the full review »

Jack the Giant Slayer is a slight twist to the infamous fairy tale. Jack now kills Giants. Ok maybe not on purpose and it's not his job or anything, but still. I'll go ahead and say it, this film is fine...just fine. Too many drawbacks and bad dec... Read the full review »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is just as good as its predecessor. I'm serious. This is actually the first film of 2017 where it felt fun, the tone was just perfect. Humour, although slightly forced at times, was excellently used both visually and in t... Read the full review »

The Place Beyond The Pines is a long crime drama. If a film's content is full of depth, detailed and worth telling then it justifies a long runtime. This film doesn't quite have enough. It does have plenty of great aspects. The cast is absolutely... Read the full review »

Killer Elite is a confused action film. Confused in the sense that the story is muddled and seems pointless. Jason Statham is a great action star as always, and I thought this was one of his better performances. Clive Owen was the best out of the... Read the full review »

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 »
