*NEW* THE SECRET OF MARROWBONE REVIEW *NEW*

A secret worth finding out? From the writer who penned The Orphanage . . . I will admit I may have set my expectations a little high. To see a low key period horror pop up during the summer blockbuster season was a shocker enough. A young man and his three younger siblings, who have … Continue reading *NEW* THE SECRET OF MARROWBONE REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* A QUIET PLACE REVIEW *NEW*

Shhhhh--- Shocking. BUT for the right reasons? A family is forced to live in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound. A tight, taut little thriller. Looks like Jim from The Office USA has a prosperous career in directing with his first foray into horror. AQP reminded me very much of M. Night Shyamalan's Signs … Continue reading *NEW* A QUIET PLACE REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* DEATH WISH REVIEW *NEW*

I must have had one watching this tripe . . . Well, that was what I thought I was going to say. Regardless of what I think of the man, Bruce Willis can still hold his own in this violent revenge flick. Dr Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) is an experienced trauma surgeon, a man who … Continue reading *NEW* DEATH WISH REVIEW *NEW*

ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD REVIEW

All in the money in the world can’t hide how mediocre this crime biopic really was. The story of the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother to convince his billionaire grandfather Jean Paul Getty to pay the ransom. A glorious opening sequence (encapsulated by Dariusz Wolski’s … Continue reading ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD REVIEW

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. An intriguing concept hammered by a meandering pace and a disappointing finale. It was a little annoying knowing that the main story arc was being retold … Continue reading ANNIHILATION REVIEW

10 CLOVERFIELD LANE REVIEW

Cloverfield Lame? Or Cloverfield Insane? Not my best effort BUT click bait is click bait. After getting in a car accident, a woman (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is held in a shelter with two men (John Goodman and John Gallagher Jr), who claim the outside world is affected by a widespread chemical attack. A fantastic Hitchcockian … Continue reading 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE REVIEW

*NEW* MOTHER REVIEW *NEW*

Oh MOTHER! That was bad. A couple's relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence. I guess I wasn't as big an Aronofsky fan as I thought. The very epitome of a Marmite movie. For some, an existential dissection of life through religious allegory. For me, a meandering mess … Continue reading *NEW* MOTHER REVIEW *NEW*
