Bumblebee: Did we need another Transformers movie? Yes we did.

I’m a Transformers pleb. But I really shouldn’t be. I mean, I grew up with the cartoons, played with the toys and have sat through all the recent movies. And yet, somehow I haven’t absorbed very much beyond the fact that there are Autobots and Decepticons and for some reason, they just don...

Mortal Engines

Based on Philip Reeve’s award winning post-apocalyptic steampunk series, Mortal Engines takes place in a world where cities now move across land on wheels, hunting each other for fuel and resources. It follows Hester Shaw (Hera Hillary) and Londoner Tom (Robert Sheehan) when they are ejected from London aft...

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – Ashton’s Thoughts

Animation has often put adults off from even watching certain films and television shows. I remember the fact that my mum always refused to watch The Simpsons because it was “a cartoon” and the difficulty I have in trying to explain the exceptional Bojack Horseman to more discerning adults. Often when peopl...

Flippin' great

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – Sarah’s Thoughts

By now, everyone is pretty familiar with the Peter Parker turned Spider-Man story line. Toby Maguire portrayed a great version of the geeky photographer Peter Parker in Spider-Man (2002), Andrew Garfield brings the cheeky badass we expect of Spider-Man to The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), and Tom Holland actua...

Robin Hood

DI: It’s a 2018 re-imagining of Robin Hood starring Taron Egerton (Kingsman). The trailer promises a sexier version of our beloved thief and I’m glad to see that there were no signs of men in tight tights (as much as I enjoyed the song that goes with this imagery). From the very start, the film overturns yo...

Ant-Man and The Wasp – Get it for the Marvel geek in your life

I didn’t actually get to see Ant-Man and the Wasp at the cinema, so I was very excited to get my hands on a 4K copy to review! For a run-down of what we thought of the movie itself, head here! I (like our reviewer Ben) absolutely loved the movie and Ant-Man is also my favourite Marvel super-hero…...

The Girl in the Spider’s Web

“After all, Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels…”. A fitting quote to open my review of Fede Alvarez’s The Girl in the Spider’s Web. In one of the opening scenes of this action/thriller/drama from the director of the brilliantly violent Evil Dead r...

Good

Solo: A Blu-ray Review

People hated this movie, but I didn’t, I didn’t hate it. I think the hate was partially a spill over from the previous Star Wars movie. I think if you view this movie just on its own merits, it’s a good movie. It’s an okay movie. Just an okay slash good movie. But with your own Blu-ray copy you get some ext...

Meh

Venom

When director Ruben Fleischer was first attached to Venom and the rumours of an R-Rated, more grown up superhero story (Logan anyone?) were floating around, I was pretty excited. The Zombieland director was potentially a great choice for the film and when Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams were attached as the...

Meh

Johnny English Strikes Again

I’m going to do things a little bit backwards here, and give you my score out of 10 straight away. For me, Johnny English Strikes Again is absolutely and unequivocally a 5/10! Because I can’t in good conscience lean towards either good or bad on this one. There’s an internal battle going on here, and it’s t...

The Predator

Director Shane Black has upset people before. Many fans strongly disliked his addition to the Iron Man franchise with claims that the film’s interpretation of The Mandarin butchered one of the most feared villains from the comics. I personally found Iron Man 3 to be pretty enjoyable – sure it wa...

Waste of time

The Crappytime Murders

Ah the late 80s. The perfect time to use what is traditionally a children’s medium – puppetry – and twist it on it’s head to push boundaries of what we are used to seeing puppets do. Sex, swearing, drugs! Amazing. Wait? It’s 2018 and Peter Jackson’s Meet The Feebles came out nearly 3...
