WILD CARD REVIEW

I’m losing faith in the Stath. Well, in his movie choices anyway. So what’s it all about, san? When a Las Vegas bodyguard (The Stath) with lethal skills and a gambling problem gets in trouble with the mob, he has one last play . . . and it's all or nothing. I should have known … Continue reading WILD CARD REVIEW

STILL ALICE REVIEW

Julianne Moore’s still got it! A stand out performance from a talented actress. A linguistics professor (Julianne Moore) and her family find their bonds tested when she is diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. I knew it would have to take something special to stop Pike or Jones taking the gold. A heartrending, emotional drama on a disease … Continue reading STILL ALICE REVIEW

X + Y REVIEW

X + Y = One good film + one happy film goer. Heartwarming, engaging and brilliantly acted. Dare I say it? This gets a 4 from me. I nearly missed this little gem as it had only a week release at my local (Cinema NOT pub). What's it about? A socially awkward teenage math prodigy … Continue reading X + Y REVIEW

Questioning, debating, pondering how on Earth it even got through the pitching process? Then, welcome. I think I've already compiled my worst films … Continue reading THE WORST FILMS OF 2014 – PART TWO

CHAPPIE REVIEW

This didn’t make me a happy chappie. BUT it wasn’t all bad. Chappie is basically a What If film. What if Johnny Five was alive and hanging around in a South African ghetto with Die Antwoord? Your reaction to that statement will probably be the one you have when you see it. For me, it … Continue reading CHAPPIE REVIEW

SUITE FRANCAISE REVIEW

Zuts alors! I've seen more drama and heartbreak in an episode of 'Allo 'Allo! Two stars for two charismatic leads. During the early years of German occupation of France in World War II, romance blooms between French villager Lucile Angellier (Michelle Williams) and German soldier Bruno von Falk (Matthias Schoenaerts). Such a shame. I really … Continue reading SUITE FRANCAISE REVIEW

BLACK SEA REVIEW

Like the submarine, it’s dark, too long and rusty in all the wrong places. I didn't want the cast to walk the plank. Just the writer. Jude Law was fantastic. I’ve always rated him as an actor. He plays the gruffly Scot Captain Robinson well. His accent was very good and he delivers enough charisma … Continue reading BLACK SEA REVIEW
