AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR REVIEW

10 years, 18 films, was Infinity War worth all the hype? I loved how the Russos made this surprisingly accessible for fans who may not have obsessively watched the entire Marvel backlog beforehand or ever (Sacrilege, I know). Crucial plot points were covered BUT you would be missing out on a lot of character depth, … Continue reading AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR REVIEW

*NEW* THOR: RAGNAROK REVIEW *NEW*

Just as ridiculous as the film title but bloody good fun all the same.

Fighting for survival and racing against time, Thor must prevent the all-powerful Hela (Cate Blanchett) from destroying his home … Continue reading *NEW* THOR: RAGNAROK REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* NOW YOU SEE ME 2 REVIEW *NEW*

And now for my next trick. Watch a franchise that nobody wanted . . . DISAPPEAR! The Four Horsemen resurface and are forcibly recruited by a tech genius to pull off their most impossible heist yet. Now You See Me was an enjoyable romp. Hardly ground breaking BUT easy going fun with a group of … Continue reading *NEW* NOW YOU SEE ME 2 REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* SPOTLIGHT REVIEW *NEW*

A slow burning, well-crafted and brilliantly acted little drama. Spotlight is the true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese. One that would shake the entire Catholic Church to its core. An intriguing opening sequence piqued my curiousity as we witnessed a … Continue reading *NEW* SPOTLIGHT REVIEW *NEW*

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON REVIEW

Did the second instalment do what the first couldn’t? Was I left fuming yet again? Or did I have to swallow my words? They’re back. Bigger, badder but better? There’s only one way to find out. When Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program called … Continue reading AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON REVIEW

FOXCATCHER REVIEW

Tough, slow and frustrating. I’d rather watch “What Did The Fox Say?” for two hours than endure this over-hyped ensemble piece again. Watching this film made me feel like I had been in a wrestling match. Tired, achy, drained and frustrated. When I first saw the trailers, I had high hopes. I went in ready … Continue reading FOXCATCHER REVIEW

BEGIN AGAIN REVIEW

Better. We're getting there. A nice film that delivers the feel good factor without laying on the cheese too much but not without its imperfections. A somewhat slow burning opener turns into an easy going well acted and well sung summery movie with a different ending, if a little abrupt in my opinion. John Carney … Continue reading BEGIN AGAIN REVIEW
