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

*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*

*NEW* LIVE BY NIGHT REVIEW *NEW*

Alright, alright. The pace may have been a killer and we might have seen it all before BUT Affleck’s crime caper still packs a punch. A group of Boston-bred gangsters set up shop in balmy Florida during the Prohibition era, facing off against the competition and the Ku Klux Klan.

*NEW* THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN REVIEW *NEW*

Not that magnificent BUT still worth a watch. Yee-ha! Seven gun men in the old west gradually come together to help a poor village against savage thieves.

BUT thanks to a … Continue reading *NEW* THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* SUICIDE SQUAD REVIEW *NEW*

Meh. I didn't hate it. Didn't love it either. Based on the DC Comic, the government gives a team of super villains a chance at redemption. The catch: their mission will probably kill them all. The first 30 minutes was brilliant. It hit the ground running and got straight to business. Director David Ayer’s rapid … Continue reading *NEW* SUICIDE SQUAD REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* SPECTRE REVIEW *NEW*

Bond is back but bigger and better? Well done, Mr Craig. You have finally won me over. To be honest, I loved his first outing in Casino Royale (my favourite in the Craig era). He had the charm, the one liners and the look. Ticking all the boxes. BUT Quantum of Solace delivered a much … Continue reading *NEW* SPECTRE REVIEW *NEW*
