*NEW* MOANA REVIEW *NEW*

Easygoing fun. In Ancient Polynesia, when a terrible curse incurred by the Demigod Maui (The Rock) reaches Moana's (Auli'i Cravalho) island, she answers the Ocean's call to seek out the Demigod to set things right. Typical Disney. But it still hit the spot. The animation was stunning. Beautiful to look at. I just wanted to dive … Continue reading *NEW* MOANA REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* EXPOSED REVIEW *NEW*

Some secrets are better left buried. A bit like this film, really. Absolutely bloody dreadful. A police detective (Keanu Reeves) investigates the truth behind his partner's death. A case that unearths disturbing police corruption and a dangerous secret involving an unlikely young woman (Ana de Armas). Or so the synopsis would lead you to believe. … Continue reading *NEW* EXPOSED REVIEW *NEW*

INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 REVIEW

Spook me once, shame on you. Spook me twice, shame on me. Spook me thr- If you can do that, then you're doing something right. They still got it! The third (Well, first) installment of the relentless Insidious franchise haunts the silver screen yet again.

SEVENTH SON REVIEW

Not as you bad as you think. Or just as bad depending on your outlook. Okay, it’s not great. BUT . . . It killed the time, zipped along, didn’t mess about and knew exactly what it was. A big, dumb, action packed supernatural blockbuster. Seventh Son is very much in the same vein as … Continue reading SEVENTH SON REVIEW

Questioning, debating, pondering how on Earth it even got through the pitching process? Then, welcome. I think I've already compiled my worst films … Continue reading THE WORST FILMS OF 2014 – PART TWO

THE BOOK OF LIFE REVIEW

There’s life in the animation. Shame there isn’t any in the story. Definitely one for the little ‘uns but adults may find themselves fidgeting. Fidgeting towards the exit door. Brought to you by Guillermo Del Toro. Meaning; He has nothing to do with it. Other than having a production credit. The honours go to animation … Continue reading THE BOOK OF LIFE REVIEW

*THROWBACK REVIEW* A NEW YORK WINTER’S TALE

An unexpected watch. Went in to the screen (not literally) expecting the usual luvvy duvvy guff (my terminology for romance stuff), but came out surprised. A well-acted love story that is as different as it is strange. Cudos for the concept but not so much for its execution. Great chemistry from a great cast shies … Continue reading *THROWBACK REVIEW* A NEW YORK WINTER’S TALE
