With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only the last Gunslinger Roland Dechain (Idris Elba) can defend the Tower from Walter O'Dim (Matthew McConaughey), the Man in Black.

*NEW* 13 HOURS: THE SECRET SOLDIERS OF BENGHAZI REVIEW *NEW*

Everything you could expect from a Bay flick and (surprisingly) more. As an American ambassador is killed during an attack at a U.S. compound in Libya, a security team struggles to make sense out of the chaos. At first; I didn’t know if I was going to be able to tolerate the relentless and OTT … Continue reading *NEW* 13 HOURS: THE SECRET SOLDIERS OF BENGHAZI REVIEW *NEW*

THE WATER DIVINER REVIEW

A simply divine debut from Russell Crowe. Engaging, heartfelt and definitely one of the better films I’ve seen. So what’s it about, mate? An Australian man (Russell Crowe) travels to Turkey after the Battle of Gallipoli to try and locate his three missing sons. Not the best title for a movie. And I could hear … Continue reading THE WATER DIVINER REVIEW

EX MACHINA

It may be a little mechanical in parts but it's certainly not one for the scrap heap. A ha . . . Anyway. Finally a film that didn't make me question the purpose of my cinema pass. A brooding, atmospheric and suspenseful thriller that ponders the existence of artificial intelligence and the very essence of life. … Continue reading EX MACHINA

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES REVIEW

BUT on the criteria of being a fun and entertaining family movie? I came out smiling and that’s saying something. Now I grew up with the Turtles and was … Continue reading TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES REVIEW

FURY REVIEW

Feel the fury! Well . . . Sort of. NO! It's not another Marvel hero origins movie. Although how good would a Nick Fury movie be? Anyway . . . David Ayer (Training Day/End of Watch) pens a hard hitting visceral war drama with the aid of a stellar cast. BUT with an overlong running … Continue reading FURY 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
