Tom Hardy’s performance certainly got the drop on me. He proves yet again why he is one of the most versatile actors going. So what’s it all about? Bob Saginowski (Hardy) finds himself at the centre of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighbourhood's past where friends, … Continue reading THE DROP REVIEW
Charming! To think a mad film student started a blog 12 months ago . 5000+ views and 231 followers later . . . I would like to thank you all for following my basic blog of mad movie ranting. Glad to know some of it made sense. There will be an influx of reviews in … Continue reading HO-HO-HO THANK YOU!
Well, this didn’t turn me into a fan but a stand out performance from Spall certainly kept me going. Mike Leigh takes his paintbrush to the canvas to paint the last 25 years of the great, if eccentric J.M.W (Joseph Mallard William) Turner. I loved Leigh’s earlier efforts; Life is Sweet, Vera Drake and Another … Continue reading MR TURNER REVIEW

A reluctant film gimmick that is starting to overstay its welcome. First Harry Potter, Twilight, … Continue reading HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 1 REVIEW

Christopher Nolan tackles the sci-fi genre in one of his most ambitious projects to date and . . . … Continue reading INTERSTELLAR REVIEW
Ho, ho, ho - horrible! Dude, Where's My Donkey? No, not the long awaited sequel to Dude, Where’s My Car? (Well, I liked it). I would have preferred watching an attempt at that than endure this festive fiasco again. From the moment the first badly mimed, badly choreographed and terribly out of sync flash mob … Continue reading NATIVITY 3: DUDE, WHERE’S MY DONKEY?
Get on it! Jim Broadbent dons the red suit and white beard and leads a sterling British cast in this fun (but flawed) Christmas cracker. Writer/director Christopher Smith has taken the same old Santa spiel and re-worked it into something quite different and entertaining. So what's it all about? (Besides the obvious implications of the title) A father … Continue reading GET SANTA REVIEW
