REVIEW: The Great Wall (2017)

I really didn’t want to watch this film. I didn’t care about Matt Damon, because why should I? He’s not playing a Chinese character. If you want to use the white saviour argument you can, but why? Damon isn’t the sole saviour, he just helps….

REVIEW: Raees (2017)

Only in Bollywood would you find a film that is a serious action thriller, a gangster movie, and a musical all in one, and only in Bollywood would they actually be able to pull that off without the whole thing seeming ridiculous.  ‘Raees’ is set…

REVIEW: xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017)

When I younger, maybe between the ages of 9 and 12, I loved ‘xXx’(2002). It was my favourite film at one point, and I used to watch it all the time, almost on repeat. I’m not ashamed to admit that it’s probably one of the…

REVIEW: Bastille Day (2016)

I’ll be honest, I was sold on this film by watching a trailer dubbed in German. All I needed to know was that Idris Elba was playing the lead in an action movie and I was ready to see this film. I didn’t expect it…

REVIEW: Alice Through The Looking Glass (2016)

Full disclosure: I saw this film dubbed in Italian, without English subtitles. Now, I don’t know any Italian, but I’m pretty sure that won’t affect my opinion on the film and I’ll explain why in this review. Above everything, film is a visual medium. I…

REVIEW: The 5th Wave (2016)

I didn’t expect this film to be good, not even slightly good, but you know what? Although it has a lot of flaws, and a lot of things about it I would change, it also does a lot of things well, which is pretty rare…

REVIEW: Captain America: Civil War (2016)

For me, there are two stages to watching and reacting to a Marvel movie for the first time. The first occurs as soon as the film ends. It’s a stage where I’m so excited and so happy I love the film. I’m completly satisfied and…

TV REVIEW: Teen Wolf (Season 1-5)

I’ll be the first to admit that when I first heard about ‘Teen Wolf’ I rolled my eyes. Another MTV show about teens? Thats just a recipe for poorly written dialogue, generic characters and lots of cringy clichés. In some ways, I was right. Yes, there are…

REVIEW: Electrick Children (2012)

The only reason I watched ‘Electrick Children’ is because the director, Rebecca Thomas, is adapting one of my favourite books, ‘Looking for Alaska’. I won’t put my thoughts on that in this review, however, as I can go on for ages about why it’s not…

REVIEW: Bone Tomahawk (2016)

Ever since I saw ‘Slow West’ I’ve had a real hankering for Westerns, so I’ve decided to go through the list of great Westerns – new and old – and that’s where I stumbled across ‘Bone Tomahawk’. Although this film sometimes verges on a horror movie, it…

REVIEW: A Bigger Splash (2016)

Going into a film without knowing anything about it is a rather fantastic feeling, and it certainly suits this film a lot. Some way into ‘A Bigger Splash’, it just throws a curveball and becomes a totally different kind of film, but sadly that doesn’t…
