THE CLOVERFIELD PARADOX REVIEW

The Cloverfield Paradozzzzz Orbiting a planet on the brink of war, scientists test a device to solve an energy crisis, and end up face-to-face with a dark alternate reality. Slow, disjointed and disappointing on all fronts. The agonizing slow opening didn’t build high hopes despite Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s (Belle) best efforts.

ANNIHILATION REVIEW

Different . . . But worth watching? A biologist (Natalie Portman) signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition into a mysterious zone where the laws of nature don't apply.

*NEW* THE SIEGE OF JADOTVILLE REVIEW *NEW*

Gripping, shocking and a bloody good watch! Irish Commandant Pat Quinlan (Jamie Dornan - Fifty Shades of Grey) leads a stand off with troops against French and Belgian Mercenaries in the Congo during the early 1960s. How did this not get a better release? Well, at least this movie established one thing. Netflix are funding … Continue reading *NEW* THE SIEGE OF JADOTVILLE REVIEW *NEW*
