HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 REVIEW

DRAGONS! Hiccup and Toothless are back after the DreamWorks animated blockbuster hit the big screens! Bigger? Absolutely. Better? Visually it's a feast for the eyes. While not surpassing the original, it certainly matches it for story, drama and entertainment. Get the little 'uns or the big kids (like myself) over to the pics and invest! … Continue reading HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 REVIEW

THE PURGE: ANARCHY REVIEW

I think I'm going to purge myself from seeing any more of these films for the foreseeable future.It's not bad enough that the first one wasn't that great. To hear there was a sequel, I was baffled. However, that ultra cool trailer worked its magic and had me intrigued.  The promise of an anarchic Escape from … Continue reading THE PURGE: ANARCHY REVIEW

BOYHOOD REVIEW

Richard Linklater brings us his most ambitious, and longest, project to the big screen with . . . mixed results. An intriguing, if overhyped, concept works as a great marketing tool but also delivers a good story with a great cast. However, despite offering a different and interesting viewing experience, it soon borders on pretentious as the second hour passes. We follow our lead character Mason … Continue reading BOYHOOD REVIEW

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION REVIEW

Trans-Bore-Mers: Age of The Extinct franchise. Michael Bay is back with more bang, more bucks and more . . . of the same old monotonous, mechanical overlong drivel. Raking in close to a billion dollars, I am lost for words. You know you're onto a loser when Mark Wahlberg can't even save the day or … Continue reading TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION REVIEW

DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES REVIEW

Yawn of the Planet of the Apes? Not quite but a questionable running length does more damage than the simian flu in what could have been a visually stunning tour de force of a prequel/sequel/prequel sequelI fear this film will split people. Not that it hadn't from the get go with a Planet of the … Continue reading DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES REVIEW

BEGIN AGAIN REVIEW

Better. We're getting there. A nice film that delivers the feel good factor without laying on the cheese too much but not without its imperfections. A somewhat slow burning opener turns into an easy going well acted and well sung summery movie with a different ending, if a little abrupt in my opinion. John Carney … Continue reading BEGIN AGAIN REVIEW

MRS BROWN BOY’S D’MOVIE REVIEW

What the feck did I just watch? Brendan O'Carroll is back as Ireland's favourite Mammy, Agnes Brown. Better than ever and on the big screen? Tragically, no. Maybe Mrs Brown should have stayed on the small screen. Now I know, that's not nice. I am actually a fan of the TV show and got caught … Continue reading MRS BROWN BOY’S D’MOVIE REVIEW
