BLUE RUIN REVIEW

It’s always the films that you expect to do nothing that surprise you. I went in fearing the worst (my usual stance these days) and was rewarded. This time it’s with a hard boiled, gritty Deep Southern revenge flick. That being said, it’s not without its flaws but worth a watch. Just has enough to … Continue reading BLUE RUIN REVIEW

ROBOCOP REVIEW

I wouldn't buy that for a dollar. Well, imagine the original cult classic in all it's glory, being de-shelled, removing all the tasty innards, the icy satire, the hysterical commercials with the infamous one liner, and replacing it with generic characters, predictable boring corrupt copper spiel, and oh yeah, pimping it out with a gloss … Continue reading ROBOCOP REVIEW

BAD NEIGHBOURS REVIEW

Rogen vs Efron. Family vs Frat. Who Will Win? There's only one way to find out . . . if you like that sort of thing. Rogen's best? Not even close. But is it funny? (The very purpose of a comedy). Did I laugh? Is it one of those movies where the best bits are in … Continue reading BAD NEIGHBOURS REVIEW

LEGO MOVIE REVIEW

Everything in this is AWESOME. Finally, a fun family movie, not without it's imperfections, but enjoyable none the less. 3D makes certain scenes stand out but not a MUST. Apart from that, the makers behind the equally brilliant Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs have assembled a hit. Basically, the plot follows Emmet (Chris Pratt), … Continue reading LEGO MOVIE REVIEW

GODZILLA REVIEW

Godzilla? God help us. I really wanted this to work but yet again another reboot fails to hit the mark by it's hero's gargantuan tail. A drawn out, plot holed mess that if not for a promising 15 minute finale would have been a complete fossil. This poor piece of dino doodoo goes out with … Continue reading GODZILLA REVIEW

PLASTIC REVIEW

Surprisingly watchable and entertaining. Hardly original or groundbreaking. Pretty much a darker Hustled up Hollyoaks hybrid but with a likeable and talented young British cast, I can think of worst ways to kill 90-odd minutes. I went in expecting the worst and was relieved. A watchable easygoing crime caper, even if the end result is … Continue reading PLASTIC REVIEW

THE OTHER WOMAN REVIEW

Here come the girls yadda yadda yadda. I mean, here comes another generic OTT chick flick. But if you go in with the right temperament, it's actually quite watchable, if ridiculous and a lot funnier than I anticipated. Hardly perfect. But with a lovely set of leading ladies who are game for a laugh, it … Continue reading THE OTHER WOMAN REVIEW
