AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON REVIEW

Did the second instalment do what the first couldn’t? Was I left fuming yet again? Or did I have to swallow my words? They’re back. Bigger, badder but better? There’s only one way to find out. When Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program called … Continue reading AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON REVIEW

THE GOOD LIE REVIEW

A good film. A group of Sudanese refugees are given the chance to resettle in Kansas City, Missouri, where their encounter with an employment agency counsellor (Reese Witherspoon) forever changes their lives. A wonderful little film that is certainly worth your attention. I originally watched this on a flight to America. I had no idea … Continue reading THE GOOD LIE REVIEW

BIG GAME REVIEW

BIG, DUMB, LAME? There's only one way to find out. The trailer looked ridiculous. I really had low expectations. BUT yet I came out after those mental 90 minutes with a guilty smile. And all I can say is this film is BIG FUN! Samuel L (The L stands for Mother F**ker) Jackson takes on … Continue reading BIG GAME REVIEW

TWO BY TWO . . . OOPS! THE ARK HAS GONE REVIEW

TWO many things wrong with this animated flick. A biblical disaster! Look, I know that this is a kids film. BUT not even the little 'uns that were in the cinema were interested. The animation was good at least. BUT not even the bright colours and zany effects could shy away the tepid mess and wishy … Continue reading TWO BY TWO . . . OOPS! THE ARK HAS GONE REVIEW

A young woman (Blake Lively), born at the turn of the 20th century, is rendered ageless after an accident. After many solitary years, she meets a man (Michiel Huisman) who complicates the eternal life she … Continue reading THE AGE OF ADALINE REVIEW

UNFRIENDED REVIEW

I'll unfriend anyone who liked this film. A little harsh. Some might say. But you know you're onto a loser when everyone in the cinema is laughing. Uninspiring, unattractive and uninteresting. As soon as the crackly Universal logo started buffering across the screen, I feared the worst. So what's this tripe about? A group of online … Continue reading UNFRIENDED REVIEW

SPOOKS: THE GREATER GOOD REVIEW

One of the best British dramas takes to the silver screen? Was it needed? Did it succeed? Or should the BBC have let old dogs lie? I won't hide my bias. I am a huge Spooks fan. It came around the same time as 24, managed to stand its own, and became one of my favourite … Continue reading SPOOKS: THE GREATER GOOD REVIEW
