*NEW* THE QUIET MAN REVIEW *NEW*

A Ford/Wayne collaboration that wasn’t a Western? A retired American boxer (John Wayne) returns to the village of his birth in Ireland, where he finds love in the form of a fiery redhead (Maureen O’Hara). Easy going, comical, perfect Sunday viewing. Is this really from the man who gave us The Searchers? "This is Ireland, … Continue reading *NEW* THE QUIET MAN REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* DOCTOR STRANGE REVIEW *NEW*

Strange is right. A former neurosurgeon (Benedict Cumberbatch) embarks on a journey of healing only to be drawn into the world of the mystic arts. Fresh, different, throw in a few crazy visual effects and we're onto a winner. Ol' Cucumberbatch nails it as the cynical and quick-witted super doc. Imagine if House had super … Continue reading *NEW* DOCTOR STRANGE REVIEW *NEW*

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR REVIEW

10 years, 18 films, was Infinity War worth all the hype? I loved how the Russos made this surprisingly accessible for fans who may not have obsessively watched the entire Marvel backlog beforehand or ever (Sacrilege, I know). Crucial plot points were covered BUT you would be missing out on a lot of character depth, … Continue reading AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR REVIEW

JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE REVIEW

Welcome to the Jungle. We've got fun and Dwayne. Four teenagers are sucked into a magical video game, and the only way they can escape is to work together to finish the game. When I first heard the rumours circulating about a Jumanji sequel/reboot/whatever, I screamed to the movie gods . . . Why?! Do … Continue reading JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE REVIEW

Spielberg is back baby! But bigger and better? When the creator of a virtual reality world (Mark Rylance - The BFG) called the OASIS dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all OASIS users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune. An enjoyable romp. The man still knows how … Continue reading *NEW* READY PLAYER ONE REVIEW *NEW*

THE HOUSE REVIEW

The House always win? Not with jokes like these. After the town takes away their daughter's college scholarship, a couple (Will Ferrell/Amy Poehler) start an illegal casino in their friend's (Jason Mantzoukas) house to make back the money. Sheesh. What is going on with comedies these days? Look, I'm not looking for groundbreaking stuff BUT … Continue reading THE HOUSE REVIEW

ROUGH NIGHT REVIEW

Yikes! I’d rather have a rough night than watch this again. Things go terribly wrong for a group of girlfriends who hire a male stripper for a bachelorette party in Miami. A highly unfunny opening college flashback didn’t build my hopes up. It was good to see that ScarJo was up for a laugh BUT … Continue reading ROUGH NIGHT REVIEW
