*NEW* TOMB RAIDER REVIEW *NEW*

Vikander was brilliant BUT was everything else? Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared. In a nutshell, flawed but fun. Something these video game movie adaptations (of late) have failed to achieve (Sorry Fassbender, the … Continue reading *NEW* TOMB RAIDER REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* MORGAN REVIEW *NEW*

Boreee-gan, more like. Original, I know. A bit like this movie's premise. A corporate risk-management consultant (Kate Mara) must decide whether or not to terminate an artificially created humanoid being (Anya Taylor-Joy). If Ridley Scott's son wasn't directing this, I wouldn't have been surprised to see this feature as a Late Night Premiere on the … Continue reading *NEW* MORGAN REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS REVIEW *NEW*

A wonderfully acted and beautifully shot drama. One of the better ones. A lighthouse keeper (Michael Fassbender) and his wife (Alicia Vikander) living off the coast of Western Australia raise a baby they rescue from a drifting rowing boat. I wasn't the biggest fan of Derek Cianfrance's The Place Beyond The Pines. At the time … Continue reading *NEW* THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. REVIEW *NEW*

Slick, cool, funny. Guy Ritchie is back with a bang! In the early 1960s, CIA agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill - Man of Steel) and KGB operative Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer - The Lone Ranger) participate in a joint mission against a mysterious criminal organization, which is working to proliferate nuclear weapons. I know that … Continue reading *NEW* THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* JASON BOURNE REVIEW *NEW*

Jason Boreeee-neeeeee. I know. That pun was as lazy as the plot line. Bourne is back but bigger and better? Not even close. Blander and boring. Definitely. The CIA's most dangerous former operative is drawn out of hiding to uncover more explosive truths about his past. That synopsis failed to deliver anything that I’d hoped. … Continue reading *NEW* JASON BOURNE REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* THE DANISH GIRL REVIEW *NEW*

Two outstanding performances makes this intriguing little drama one to watch. A fictitious love story inspired by the lives of Danish artists Lili Elbe (Eddie Redmayne) and Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander). Lili and Gerda's marriage and work evolve as they navigate Lili's groundbreaking journey as a transgender pioneer. I never expected The Danish Girl to … Continue reading *NEW* THE DANISH GIRL REVIEW *NEW*
