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* ATOMIC BLONDE REVIEW *NEW*

Charlize Theron kicks just enough ass to make this a little more than a generic actioner. An undercover MI6 agent (Theron) is sent to Berlin during the Cold War to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and recover a missing list of double agents. The slow opener didn't build up high hopes as it … Continue reading *NEW* ATOMIC BLONDE REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* CHRISTMAS WITH THE COOPERS REVIEW *NEW*

This one got me in the spirit. The alcoholic spirits in my cupboard. As Olivia Wilde’s character put it, “I can’t face the anticipointment. You know anticipation of disappointment”. Well, Ms Wilde. The anticipointment was still too much to bear. It was watchable BUT enjoyable? I should have known what I was getting myself into. … Continue reading *NEW* CHRISTMAS WITH THE COOPERS REVIEW *NEW*

THE GAMBLER REVIEW

The odds on me telling you to watch this pretentious yawnfest are virtually zilch. Harsh? Maybe. But I have never been so bored and disappointed with a film in some time. Mark Wahlberg and Rupert Wyatt take on the remake of the cult Caan crime caper and, to be honest, by the end I couldn’t … Continue reading THE GAMBLER REVIEW

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION REVIEW

Trans-Bore-Mers: Age of The Extinct franchise. Michael Bay is back with more bang, more bucks and more . . . of the same old monotonous, mechanical overlong drivel. Raking in close to a billion dollars, I am lost for words. You know you're onto a loser when Mark Wahlberg can't even save the day or … Continue reading TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION REVIEW

The Monuments Men Review

Not a monument that will stand the lengths of time in the huge backlog of war classics we've had before. It checked all the boxes but failed to deliver anything new or interesting. Hardly a bomb site, but it lacked the right execution for this operation. George Clooney takes the helm yet again in an … Continue reading The Monuments Men Review
