NIGHTCRAWLER REVIEW

Donnie’s really gone Dark-o Jake Gyllenhaal manages to do his best Patrick Bateman impression and out-Bale Bale in one of his best performances to date. Dark, demented and very good. If a little predictable. So what's it about? When Lou Bloom (Gyllenhaal), a driven man desperate for work, muscles into the world of L.A. crime journalism, … Continue reading NIGHTCRAWLER REVIEW

HORNS REVIEW

Yawwwnnnnssss . . . Hell hath no fury like a horny Harry. Daniel Radcliffe delivers another standout performance. It’s just a shame that despite his best efforts, this film should go back to the fiery hole it came from. You’re a demon, Harry. Anyway, enough Harry Potter jokes. Let’s get down to business. I would … Continue reading HORNS REVIEW

THE BABADOOK REVIEW

The Baba-boo-k! A well-acted low budget horror that fails to live up to the hype. The wait for a decent horror movie goes on . . . After all the buzz and promise, I came out of the cinema not in tears from fear and anxiety but tears of laughter. After enduring a slow burning … Continue reading THE BABADOOK REVIEW

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU REVIEW

This is where I leave the cinema for a bit . . . No, it’s not that bad. But not that great either considering the talent at Shawn Levy’s fingertips. Levy’s projects have always been okay (Real Steel/ Date Night/The Internship). For some of you those titles might make you wince. The master of ground … Continue reading THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU REVIEW

BOGOWIE REVIEW

Wowie, Bogowie! Riveting, engaging (if a little corny) with a slightly abrupt ending but a treat none the less. If your cinema's showing it, go see it. I never miss a film at my cinema these days. Merely for the very fact (I have too much time on my hands) that the films I've never … Continue reading BOGOWIE REVIEW

LOVE, ROSIE REVIEW

Love the cast. But the film? The film was actually a lot better than I expected. Certainly better than The Best of Me and that's down to the chemistry of two very likeable leads in Claflin and Collins. Yes, yes! I saw a rom com . . . and I liked it. Kind of. It's … Continue reading LOVE, ROSIE REVIEW

FURY REVIEW

Feel the fury! Well . . . Sort of. NO! It's not another Marvel hero origins movie. Although how good would a Nick Fury movie be? Anyway . . . David Ayer (Training Day/End of Watch) pens a hard hitting visceral war drama with the aid of a stellar cast. BUT with an overlong running … Continue reading FURY REVIEW
