MUPPETS MOST WANTED REVIEW

Meh-na-meh-na- Muppets Most Wanted? Unfortunately this time round, Muppets Missed Something. Before you ask, I am a big Muppet (We know that. Stop it. We're better than that) fan. I've loved the TV series and the movie franchise. After the fantastic reboot, it was inevitable a sequel would be in motion. This is hilariously demonstrated in … Continue reading MUPPETS MOST WANTED REVIEW

STARRED UP REVIEW

Scum, this ain't san. A slow hard boiled film that doesn't deserve to be locked up and is reprieved by an unexpected brutal climax and a very talented cast. It's great to see low budget British films like this getting recognized and put out on the cinema circuit. We follow the incredibly volatile Eric Love … Continue reading STARRED UP REVIEW

300: Rise of an Empire Review

THIS IS . . . surprisingly watchable and not bad. We seek that day where sequels can surpass their masters. There have been legends. But alas, today is not that day. But don't worry, it still bears the bare boned brutality, visual brilliance and enough gore and testosterone to cure your blood lust and fill … Continue reading 300: Rise of an Empire Review

NEED FOR SPEED REVIEW

I feel the need, the need . . . to review this film, yo! We've seen the story before but where it lacks in that department (I mean, come on, it's a car movie), it cooks up octane action and special effects with real cars in proper car chases without CGI, making this one to … Continue reading NEED FOR SPEED REVIEW

The Grand Budapest Hotel Review

Grand . . . to look at but beneath it's eye catching decor, it doesn't quite match your expectation and leaves a little to be desired. Hardly a film I would revisit but not bad for a weekend break, if you get my drift. Right enough wordplay. This is really down to how much of … Continue reading The Grand Budapest Hotel Review

THE BOOK THIEF REVIEW

An endearing and heartfelt drama. Brilliantly written, nicely shot and well acted. Against the backdrop of the impending Second World War, a young orphan Liesel Nieminger (Sophie Nelisse) finds solace in stealing books as well as hiding a Jewish refugee, Max (Ben Schnetzer) who is being sheltered by her adoptive parents. I've never read Markus … Continue reading THE BOOK THIEF REVIEW

RIDE ALONG REVIEW

Chug along? Cube and Hart make a cracking good duo. Fun enough BUT will it compare to the relentless list of cop comedies? Security guard Ben (Kevin Hart) must prove himself to his girlfriend's brother, top cop James (Ice Cube). He rides along with James on a 24-hour patrol of Atlanta. A mixed bag. It … Continue reading RIDE ALONG REVIEW
