*NEW* POWER RANGERS REVIEW *NEW*

Go, go . . . Watch something else. Another reboot bites the dust. Messy, corny, long at the tooth. How could a movie involving alien superpowers and giant robots be so god damn boring? A group of high-school students, who are infused with unique superpowers, harness their abilities in order to save the world. I … Continue reading *NEW* POWER RANGERS 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*

THE MAZE RUNNER REVIEW

AMAZE-ING?! Hardly but it did do something I didn't expect. It surprised me. In case that sounded familiar, I think I might have nicked a Monsters University quote. In fact, I totally did. Anyway, here we are. Another bestselling teen novel that Hollywood can adapt and churn into a million dollar franchise. Because that's worked … Continue reading THE MAZE RUNNER REVIEW

THE GIVER REVIEW

Hollywood gives us another post-apocalyptic teen franchise to sink our teeth into but does it make you want to? In a seemingly perfect community, without war, pain, suffering, differences or choice, a young boy is chosen to learn from an elderly man about the true pain and pleasure of the "real" world. Jonas: “If I’m the receiver … Continue reading THE GIVER 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

PLASTIC REVIEW

Surprisingly watchable and entertaining. Hardly original or groundbreaking. Pretty much a darker Hustled up Hollyoaks hybrid but with a likeable and talented young British cast, I can think of worst ways to kill 90-odd minutes. I went in expecting the worst and was relieved. A watchable easygoing crime caper, even if the end result is … Continue reading PLASTIC REVIEW

DIVERGENT REVIEW

Watchable enough. Even if the film was Di-Verging on Being a Hunger Games Rip off. In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris (Shailene Woodley) learns she's Divergent and won't fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four (Theo James) must find out what makes Divergents … Continue reading DIVERGENT REVIEW
