REVIEW: Wreck-It Ralph (2012)

It’s been a while since a new Disney film has caught my eye and lured me into watching it, as I am of the impression that “the classics” are still the best, so I’ve tended to steer clear of newer releases. For Disney, the last few…

REVIEW: Cobain: Montage Of Heck (2015)

WRITTEN BY MOLLY DOLAN Nirvana has long held a fascination amongst not only fans, but any persons aware of their unavoidable musical dominance in the early 1990s. The bands’ genuine rock presence in an era of dance pop was topped only by the intrigue of…

REVIEW: Locke (2013)

Whenever I notice a film with such critical acclaim as ‘Locke’, I make a point of going out of my way to see it. ‘Locke’ is not the type of blockbuster you saw in adverts on television. It’s a minimalist, under-the-radar, indie arthouse drama, that…

REVIEW: The Silence Of The Lambs (1991)

I will soon be undergoing a house move, which means there has been ample opportunity for me to have a root around in my DVD collection whilst packing stuff into various boxes. I saw the iconic DVD case for ‘The Silence Of The Lambs’ and…

REVIEW: The Intouchables (2011)

WRITTEN BY WAN TYSZKIEWICZ If I was on a one-woman mission to persuade the people of Britain to watch subtitled films, then ‘The Intouchables’ is the movie that I’d tell everyone to watch first. Never mind all the other subtitled films that you’ve started but…

REVIEW: Hancock (2008)

I’ve watched this film a few times before and always loved it. Admittedly, I love just about anything superhero related, and ‘Hancock’ offers something a little bit different, something new to the genre. The film gets a pretty bad press from critics, and I can’t…

REVIEW: Jurassic Park (1993)

WRITTEN BY CHRIS WINTERBOTTOM  I was almost five years old when ‘Jurassic Park’ roared into theatres. As a kid who loved dinosaurs (I still do to be honest) this film really did tick all the boxes for a child my age. But I never saw…

REVIEW: Entourage (2015)

WRITTEN BY ANDREW GARRISON I walked into the movie ‘Entourage’ knowing very little about the HBO television series, which ran from 2004 through 2011, that built enough of a cult following to command a feature length, big screen adaptation. I had never seen the show…

REVIEW: San Andreas (2015)

Disaster movies are never as groundbreaking as the earthquakes and twisters they depict. It’s a sub-genre which allows for very little originality or plot depth, and for that reason, I wasn’t particularly eager to go and see ‘San Andreas’. I wasn’t totally against the idea…

REVIEW: Chappie (2015)

WRITTEN BY RHYS WORTHAM This film got a pretty hard time after its release in theatres, with many critics and moviegoers alike responding with little more than ambivalence. So you are forgiven for expecting a mediocre film with a lack of any real substance. ‘Chappie’…

REVIEW: The Inbetweeners 2

WRITTEN BY CHRIS WINTERBOTTOM ‘The Inbetweeners Movie’ was a box office sensation here in the UK. It caught many cinemas by surprise at just how many people went to see the film; baffling considering how popular the TV show was and still is. Critics and audiences…

REVIEW: Now You See Me (2013)

Magicians turned criminals, really? Magicians and film is such a hit and miss combination anyway. Some TV magicians are undisputedly amazing, and Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Prestige’ was a fantastic film. The key to the success of that particular magical movie was that the magic didn’t…
