*NEW* ALIEN: COVENANT REVIEW *NEW*

Even in space, no one should see this dreadful Alien prequel. The crew of a colony ship, bound for a remote planet, discover an uncharted paradise with a threat beyond their imagination, and must attempt a harrowing escape. Sound familiar? It should. For the love of God, Ridley Scott. Just stop. I can respect the … Continue reading *NEW* ALIEN: COVENANT REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* MACBETH REVIEW *NEW*

I think I'd rather fill my mind with scorpions than sit through this again. Despite a powerhouse performance by Fassbender, Justin Kurzel's adaptation of the renowned Shakespearean play didn't quite do it for me. Macbeth (Michael Fassbender), the Thane of Glamis, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become … Continue reading *NEW* MACBETH REVIEW *NEW*

EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS REVIEW

Exoduzzzzz. Basically the Dark Prince of Egypt. No singing, a whole lot darker and a whole lot longer.  A mess. A beautifully shot one but a mess all the same. So what’s it all about? (For those who don’t know) The defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), … Continue reading EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS REVIEW

’71 REVIEW

A bold, visceral debut with another charismatic performance from a rising star. BUT not without its imperfections. Firstly, it helps to have some insight into the Troubles of '71. Now my knowledge is sparse but despite not being alive at the time, that doesn't mean I'm not aware of the conflict that ensued between England … Continue reading ’71 REVIEW

WHAT IF REVIEW

What if . . . 'Arry Potter made a rom com about falling in love with a girl who is with somebody else? A surprisingly watchable and entertaining one, that's what. Daniel Radcliffe makes another impressive screen outing breaking away from those Hogwarts halls in this indie rom com. Now it's hardly original. The obvious … Continue reading WHAT IF REVIEW
