On The Basis Of Sex neutralises gender discrimination through sharp legal battles. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the now Supreme Court Justice, is an advocate for the advancement of women's rights and gender equality. Her refusal to step down and her stubb... Read the full review »

Super (2010)

Super (2010)

4 / 10
Super struggles to power through its jarring tonal shifts. Nope. Didn't like it. Considering it's from the "genius mind of James Gunn", I expected more. Way more. Before he succumbed to the inevitable studio trap, pouring money into his lap, Gunn... Read the full review »

(500) Days of Summer seasons a realistic romance with romantic comedy clichés. "There are two kinds of people in this world: men and women". Aside from heavy-handed heterosexual lines of dialogue (like the above) in an attempt to come across as q... Read the full review »

Transformers The Last Knight hopefully keeps its promise in being the final film. Michael Bay activated "Ultimate Bay-hemoth" mode. Explosions, mind-numbing action, sexy female leads, one-dimensional characters, deplorable dialogue and a flimsy st... Read the full review »

Me Before You occasionally paralyses itself with romantic clichés but bravely tackles a controversial subject. As someone who does not actively seek out soppy romances (mostly because I like to live in solitude), I found this quirky British love... Read the full review »

Aladdin rubs its own lamp and summons one of Disney's best musicals. The beginning of the "House of Mouse's" renaissance era was probably the best few years since their conception. Aladdin contributes to that significantly, with its memorable song... Read the full review »

The Hidden World reveals the hardship of parting ways through fantastical animation. Its predecessors are among the best of the best when it comes to family adventure flicks. Packing emotional heft, boasting colourful characters whilst also delive... Read the full review »

The Hole in the Ground is one crevice not worth exploring. Low-budget horrors is something that production companies Vertigo and A24 typically excel at (particularly the latter). So, I gradually became optimistic that this terribly named dramatic... Read the full review »

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night bravely describes itself as "the first Iranian vampire western". Arthouse cinema, at the best of times, can be divisive. Typically critics adore the presence of thematic interpretation, whereas general audiences re... Read the full review »

Conan the Barbarian is about as menacing as Momoa's freshly shaven baby face. The sword and sorcery sub-genre had a huge resurgence in the early 2010s, with remakes including 'Clash of the Titans' gracing our screens. However this flick acts as ne... Read the full review »

Metropolis unfolds into a mechanical masterpiece in ingenuity and expressionism. The grandfather of science-fiction. The film that single-handedly pioneered a genre. Just, impressive. I've been waiting a good few years to watch this German express... Read the full review »

Breakfast at Tiffany's wears the glitz and glamour to depict superficial materialism. It was fate that this comedic drama would be my first Audrey Hepburn film. After hearing so much about it and constantly singing "Moon River", I needed to make m... Read the full review »

The Wizard of Oz puts a glorious technicolor spell on younger audiences. Let's get this out of the way first. I had never seen The Wizard of Oz until now. Obviously its legendary status had allowed certain scenes and songs to enter the American po... Read the full review »

Casablanca dances the war-driven night away with sweeping romanticism. Another classic that many critics and cinephiles believe to be one of the greatest pieces of cinema ever. And much like 'Citizen Kane', I unfortunately was not overly enamoured... Read the full review »

Singin' In The Rain is pouring with whimsical musicality and soaking in silver screen magic. The musical genre is not my favourite. Not in the slightest. Taking a drama and having characters randomly burst into a musical number never really appeal... Read the full review »

Rambo (2008)

6 / 10
Rambo returns to doing what he does best, soaking jungles in blood and guts. Admittedly, I've never seen any of the previous instalments, so I was unsure what I was letting myself in for. Safe to say that the certification it obtained was very muc... Read the full review »

Dogtooth mentally conditions its children through meandering tricks. Before Lanthimos made a name for himself with western audiences, with the likes of 'The Lobster' and 'The Favourite', his first few films were pure Arthouse. With such a low budg... Read the full review »
