The Lego Ninjago Movie

I’m going to come right out and say it: I’m 23 years old and I LOVED The Lego Movie and The Lego Batman Movie. The former, I watched 4 times by choice. So my hopes were high for The Lego Ninjago Movie. Lego Ninjago stars the voice talent of Jackie Chan (Master Wu), Dave Franco (Master Builder Ll...

Kingsman: The Golden Circle – watch it bruv

Ultraviolence + a dash of smutty humour + a bunch of one liners = Kingsman: The Golden Circle I didn’t know if I’d be willing to jump back into the Kingsman world after the ending of the first one spoiled the fun I’d been having, but I’m SO glad I did! Definitely not a film for the c...

The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One

Now that I’ve seen the Osiris Child, I think I understand why adults would get so frustrated when I didn’t do the best I could at school. This movie had so much potential. Perhaps I went into it with too many expectations, perhaps I left it too long before watching it, raising my hopes. Whatever it was, I t...

Terminator 2: Judgement Day

Terminator was born from a nightmare. In 1981, James Cameron was in Italy working on the production of Piranha II: The Spawning (“finest flying killer fish horror/comedy ever made”) and was running a bad fever. That night, in what was no doubt a troubled sleep, he dreamt that a metallic torso was dragging i...

Fashion meets Fantasy in “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets”

Let’s just call it Valerian. Man, this title is a mouthful. I kept calling it “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Somethings”. Title aside, it has Luc Besson at the helm. If Christopher Nolan is the bad boy, then Besson is the rock star of directors in my eyes. With his typical style of f...

Great

Atomic Blonde

I never thought I would enjoy a movie that’s essentially about a woman beating a whole bunch of men to death quite so much. Set in Berlin in 1989, Atomic Blonde is an action thriller that proves a woman can quite deftly step into James Bond’s shoes. There’s big 80’s hits from Queen, Depeche Mode and Goldfin...

Dunkirk

Look, straight off the bat, this is another Christopher Nolan slam dunk. He’s one of the most reliable directors out there. When I first heard he was taking on a World War 2 film, I was like, this is guaranteed gold. The twist however is that it’s not a moment of glory, the battle of Dunkirk was a tough los...

War for the Planet of the Apes

I’m going to call it early: the Planet of the Apes reboot has left the best until last. War for the Planet of the Apes is the best instalment perhaps since the 1968 original, and you don’t need to have seen any of the other films to catch it in the cinema and love it. In the original, it’s obvious the audie...

Transformers: The Last Knight

You know, it ain’t bad. Back in 2006, I remember seeing the trailer for the first Transformers at the cinema before a screening of Nacho Libre. I went home telling my Mum about it and she gave me a strange look and a patronising “OK…” The following year however, on the way home from the cinema, Mum was ravi...

8 Reasons Why You NEED To See The Live Action Attack On Titan Movies!

Now I’m guessing you’re reading this article for one of three possible reasons: 1. You’re a fan of the manga/anime so you’ve been avoiding the live action films and you’re wondering if I’m going to convince you to give them a go (that is my goal) 2. You’ve seen the ...

The Fly: Ultimate Collection

If you’re reading this, if you’re interested at all, you’re probably already a fan of Cronenberg’s 1986 classic The Fly, starring Jeff Goldblum. Such a classic, that many are unaware that it’s actually a remake of a 1958 movie of the same name. Fewer still have been exposed to the sequels in the 50s and 60s...

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

“They call themselves the Guardians of the Galaxy.” “What a bunch of a-holes.” So yeah, that about sums it up. Of course the ladies-in-charge will never accept a two sentence quote as a review so allow me to elaborate. Normally when I review something, I like to watch the thing I’m reviewing and then start ...
