Enough silly animation to entertain the little 'uns. A watchable and colourful sequel that failed to beat the original but just about got away with it. Here we join Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and Jewel (Anne Hathaway), now complete with three loveable kids, as they trade the frantic festival city life of Rio de Janeiro for … Continue reading RIO 2 REVIEW
The-Not-So-Amazing-And-Incredibly-Corny-Spiderman. Stunning special effects and 3D trickery does not a good movie make. Certainly made it watchable BUT with a gushy teen romance subplot dominating an overlong screen time, villains that hardly threatened or entertained and a plot that was nothing more than build up for another inevitable installment, you can't help but question why … Continue reading THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN 2 REVIEW
I loved the cast. I just wish the gags had more of a punch. It's OTT, corny and absolutely ridiculous but fun enough with the odd laugh (BUT not as much as I hoped). However, one thing that this film does prove is that talented actors can make mediocre material much much more watchable. Critically … Continue reading THE LOVE PUNCH REVIEW
Thought I'd check my little blog and found out I achieved over 1000 views from you lovely people.

Not bad for four months doing the … Continue reading THANKING YOU! OVER 1000 VIEWS!
The Dark Knight of Action Movies? Sorry guys not for me. The woes of hype and the dreaded sequelitis hinder a brutal tour de force of bone crushing awesomeness. By all means, it's still one of the better films out there at the moment but at a whopping 2 and a half hours, some might … Continue reading THE RAID 2 REVIEW
The . . . last film they should do about Mars. Oh my days. The next contender for worst film of 2014 and we're only into April. Shambolic. The pain endured watching this space turd was like having a xenomorph burst out of my chest and that still would have been more entertaining than this … Continue reading THE LAST DAYS ON MARS REVIEW
The Quite . . . Rubbish Ones, really. A real shame, a rebooted Hammer brings us a jumpy, if tragically predictable and disappointing affair. With the inevitable tag line, "Based on actual events", we follow an Oxford University professor and a team of students in the 1970s as they conduct an experiment on a young girl … Continue reading THE QUIET ONES REVIEW
