*NEW* A WALK IN THE WOODS REVIEW *NEW*

A walk to remember? Jog on. A watchable if incredibly tame affair sees two ageing screen icons having fun. Shame, it didn't live up to much. After spending two decades in England, Bill Bryson (Robert Redford) returns to the US, where he decides the best way to connect with his homeland is to hike the … Continue reading *NEW* A WALK IN THE WOODS REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* THE VISIT REVIEW *NEW*

That’s one visit I won’t be making again. A single mother (Kathryn Hahn) finds that things in her family's life go very wrong after her two young children (Olivia DeJonge and Ed Oxenbould) visit their grandparents (Peter McRobbie and Deanna Dunagan). Has M. Night Shyamalan broken his movie curse? Not even close. To think this was … Continue reading *NEW* THE VISIT REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* THE TRANSPORTER REFUELLED REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS REVIEW *NEW*

Caught between a forbidden romance and the expectations of his friends, aspiring DJ Cole Carter (Zac Efron) attempts to find the … Continue reading *NEW* WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* RICKI AND THE FLASH REVIEW *NEW*

Meryl Streep sings and struts her way through this easygoing BUT tragically mediocre melodrama. A musician (Streep) who gave up everything for her dream of rock-and-roll stardom returns home, looking to make things right with her family. Penned by Diablo Cody. A somewhat mixed reaction for me. At her best, Juno. Her worst? Jennifer's Body. … Continue reading *NEW* RICKI AND THE FLASH REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL REVIEW *NEW*

A challenging dramedy in more ways than one. A promising cast reprieve a surprisingly patchy affair. High schooler Greg (Thomas Mann), who spends most of his time making parodies of classic movies with his co-worker Earl (RJ Cryler), finds his outlook forever altered after befriending a classmate (Olivia Cooke) who has just been diagnosed with cancer. … Continue reading *NEW* ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL REVIEW *NEW*
