*NEW* CREED REVIEW *NEW*

We may have seen it all before BUT Jordan's performance packs a punch and does enough to hold its own. The former World Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) serves as a trainer and mentor to Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan), the son of his late friend and former rival Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers). From … Continue reading *NEW* CREED REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* THE 5TH WAVE REVIEW *NEW*

Corny, dull, laughable. Another Hunger Games inspired mess floods the silver screen. Four waves of increasingly deadly alien attacks have left most of Earth decimated. Cassie (Chloe Grace Moretz) is on the run, desperately trying to save her younger brother (Zackary Arthur). The premise seemed a little hokey BUT with Hit Girl at the helm, I … Continue reading *NEW* THE 5TH WAVE REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* THE LAST WITCH HUNTER REVIEW *NEW*

Hopefully this will be the last. The last witch hunter (Vin Diesel) is all that stands between humanity and the combined forces of the most horrifying witches in history. I really wanted to like this. This had the perfect ingredients for a guilty pleasure. BUT all it did was leave me screaming like one of the … Continue reading *NEW* THE LAST WITCH HUNTER REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* HE NAMED ME MALALA REVIEW *NEW*

An interesting if patchy insight into the influential teen. A look at the events leading up to the Taliban's attack on Pakistani schoolgirl, Malala Yousafzai, for speaking out on girls' education followed by the aftermath, including her speech to the United Nations. A wonderfully animated opening didn't really set the pace for me. BUT it … Continue reading *NEW* HE NAMED ME MALALA REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* KILL YOUR FRIENDS REVIEW *NEW*

Hoult delivers a killer performance. Shame. The rest of the film didn't. An A&R man (Nicholas Hoult) working at the height of the Britpop music craze goes to extremes in order to find his next hit. He's come a long way from About A Boy. Channeling his inner Patrick Bateman, Nicholas Hoult kills in this … Continue reading *NEW* KILL YOUR FRIENDS REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* BRIDGE OF SPIES REVIEW *NEW*

I spy a cracking little drama. You can always bank on Hanks (Had to be careful typing that) During the Cold War, an American lawyer (Tom Hanks) is recruited to defend an arrested Soviet spy (Mark Rylance) in court, and then help the CIA facilitate an exchange of the spy for the Soviet captured American … Continue reading *NEW* BRIDGE OF SPIES REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* DADDY’S HOME REVIEW *NEW*

Daddy should have stayed away. Marky Mark and Ron Burgundy take each other on in a mediocre reunion. Stepdad, Brad Whitaker (Will Ferrell), is a radio host trying to get his stepchildren to love him and call him Dad. But his plans turn upside down when the biological father, Dusty Mayron (Mark Wahlberg) returns. Not … Continue reading *NEW* DADDY’S HOME REVIEW *NEW*
