REVIEW: Battle At Big Rock (2019)

After the beautifully directed but rather ridiculous events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, humanity faces the terrifying prospect of finding ourselves fighting for the title as the dominant species on planet Earth. Or at least that is what is suggested in Colin Trevorrow’s new short…

REVIEW: Haunt (2019)

Off the back of their somewhat unexpected but completely deserved proverbial thrusting into the limelight after the release of 2018 smash-hit “A Quiet Place”, Scott Beck and Bryan Woods returned to the genre that served them so well previously with their new horror outing “Haunt”. …

REVIEW: Night Hunter (2019)

A stellar acting cast. The promise of an intense, crime thriller. A bearded Henry Cavill donning a procession of fantastic jumpers?! On the surface, Night Hunter (or Nomis as it was previously titled) has so much going for it but somehow it manages to get…

REVIEW: The Jungle Book (2016)

The concept of Disney’s live-action remakes is proving to be quite divisive amongst fans and critics. For some, the animated classics should be left as they are, whilst others want to see their favourite cartoons made all the more spectacular with the wonderful new technologies…

REVIEW: Triple 9 (2016)

Given that I was one of the few people who wasn’t overly fussed for the release of ‘Deadpool’ (my ignorance was duly rectified), I had my sights firmly set on ‘Triple 9’ as the film to tide me over before the release of ‘Batman v Superman’. The trailer immediately caught…

REVIEW: Spotlight (2016)

I think it’s fair to say that my expectations ahead of going to see ‘Spotlight’ were pretty high. I’d enjoyed ‘The Revenant’ so much a few weeks back that I had it pinned as my sure-fire winner of the Best Picture award at this year’s Oscars. When…

REVIEW: The Revenant (2016)

In a recent article that I contributed to for HC MovieReviews, we had ‘The Revenant’ placed at number two in a list of our most anticipated films of 2016. Compliment that with the fact that early reviews from across the pond were full of praise for…

REVIEW: Gone Baby Gone (2015)

After recently watching Ben Affleck’s ‘The Town’ and enjoying it immensely, I thought I would go back in time and watch his feature-length directorial debut, ‘Gone Baby Gone’. With an all-star cast (including Affleck’s kid brother, Casey) and an intriguing plot that promised to be right up…

REVIEW: Harry Brown (2009)

‘Harry Brown’ is a film that has been on my watchlist for a considerable time now, as a result of good reviews from various website and other film critics, as well as my liking for Michael Caine as an actor. When I further inspected the…

REVIEW: Crimson Peak (2015)

‘Crimson Peak’ had been on my radar ever since I first saw the trailer for it. I secretly quite enjoy horror films, and this looked like just the ticket for me, especially in the run up to Halloween. When I further contemplated the prospect  of Tom Hiddelston…

REVIEW: The Others (2001)

‘The Others’ is a film I hadn’t really heard about until my partner picked it out at our local DVD store. She recommended it with the highest praise and said it would be right up my street in terms of genre and style. As a…
