A WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES REVIEW

Or Taken To The Grave? Liam Neeson uses his particular set of skills. No, wait! His acting skills (Remember them?) and his gravelly gravitas for the hardened private eye thrown into the seedy underworld of a 90s New York City. A return to form for the reformed action hero in a suspenseful, if drawn out, … Continue reading A WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES REVIEW

THE RIOT CLUB REVIEW

Such a riot! Tragically not. Two first-year students at Oxford University join the infamous Riot Club, where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening, leading to . . . A mediocre class satire that had so much potential to be so much more. To be honest, the concept should … Continue reading THE RIOT CLUB REVIEW

*THROWBACK REVIEW* PLANES 2: FIRE AND RESCUE

I was surprised and anxious to hear that Planes had earned a sequel. To be honest Cars was a bit of a misfire. Watchable but hardly memorable. I didn't even get round to watching the sequel. It reeked of desperation when they tried to merge the Cars and Planes universe together. The problems was that … Continue reading *THROWBACK REVIEW* PLANES 2: FIRE AND RESCUE

WHAT WE DID ON OUR HOLIDAY REVIEW

From the makers that brought you Outnumbered. Now if you’re wincing at that title, then this may not be for you. Doug (David Tennant), Abi (Rosamund Pike) and their three children travel to the Scottish Highlands for Doug's father Gordie's (Billy Connolly) birthday party. It's soon clear that when it comes to keeping a secret … Continue reading WHAT WE DID ON OUR HOLIDAY REVIEW

*THROWBACK REVIEW* TAMMY

  Oh my . . . what went wrong? Now I'm a big fan of Melissa McCarthy. She has proven time and time again to deliver the funny. Breaking through with the mega-hit Bridesmaids; McCarthy has excelled. Her projects may lack in story and plot but always deliver in laughs. The Heat was exceptionally good. … Continue reading *THROWBACK REVIEW* TAMMY

*THROWBACK REVIEW* BELLE

Pride and Racial Prejudice or Frownton Abbey. A stellar British cast uplifts a syrupy biopic that you'd expect to see on ITV. 12 Years A Slave, this ain't. It's certainly watchable and zips along but it doesn't really make full use of the cast or the subject matter and inevitably leads to the same old … Continue reading *THROWBACK REVIEW* BELLE

*THROWBACK REVIEW* BLENDED REVIEW

If you still like or even love Adam Sandler movies, then this one is for you. For everybody else, move on. There has been a lot of cynicism and “hate-watching” surrounding his last entries. A good portion not completely unjustified. (That’s My Boy, Jack and Jill and Grown Ups 2, I’m looking at you!) Let’s … Continue reading *THROWBACK REVIEW* BLENDED REVIEW
