REVIEW: X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

REVIEW: Steve Jobs (2015)

I really am a huge fan of Michael Fassbender, and I was very happy to see him land a huge role like this, which should have seen him storm the US and become a true Hollywood A-lister. It is a real shame then that ‘Steve…

REVIEW: Slow West (2015)

This film had one of those blink and you miss releases – actually I’m not even sure ‘Slow West’ came to my local theatre – and it’s a film that I wasn’t particularly heartbroken over not getting to see at the time. I’m a big…

REVIEW: The Counsellor (2013)

REVIEW: X-Men: Days Of Future Past (2014)

Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of the X-Men film franchise and I don’t know why. I love superheroes, both in comic-book and movie form, I love the idea of the X-Men in general, but somewhere along the line I just feel as though the…
