JURASSIC WORLD REVIEW

Revisiting the monster hit that tore up the box office and . . . Meh. I loved the original. An iconic piece of film making that I have lost many a Sunday afternoon watching again and again. It was always going to be hard not to draw comparisons. BUT this was just about en par … Continue reading JURASSIC WORLD REVIEW

JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE REVIEW

Welcome to the Jungle. We've got fun and Dwayne. Four teenagers are sucked into a magical video game, and the only way they can escape is to work together to finish the game.

For the love of God, Ridley Scott. Just stop. I can respect the … Continue reading *NEW* ALIEN: COVENANT REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* PASSENGERS REVIEW *NEW*

One ride I didn’t expect to enjoy. Two passengers are awakened 90 years early after a spaceship malfunction en route to a distant colony. From all the negative press, I was bracing myself for something horrific. A loved up but incredibly naff Gravity rip-off. Oh no! The opening act was completely different to what I had … Continue reading *NEW* PASSENGERS REVIEW *NEW*
