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...

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...

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...

Ralph Breaks the Internet

You and I step into Tapper’s together. We sit down and wave the barman over. He asks us our orders before handing us a root beer each. We both smell it in disgust because it’s root beer and so I offer you a ginger beer, spiced with cinnamon for the festive season. “So,” you pop the l...

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

Christmas came early… but unfortunately it’s probably one just for the kids. As the posters and trailers have promised, it is a visual spectacular. The costumes are absolutely stunning, the world is inventive, beautiful and mysterious and the ballet is entrancing. But it’s a fancy facade t...

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 Grinch

After an 18 year absence the Grinch and his hatred of merriment is returning to the big screen this Christmas. Benedict Cumberbatch voices the nasty green scrooge, who plans to steal Christmas away from those annoying Whos. The Grinch and his trusty dog Max will ensure the residence of Whoville will be with...

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...

Mirai

Josh: As we are both the eldest sibling in our families, I wonder, do you have any memory of your younger sibling arriving into your life? I don’t, but I do have a hazy memory of realising all of a sudden I would have to share. There’s a picture of me holding my younger sister gently, but my parents have in...

Christopher Robin: Bring your Hankies and Balloons

I can’t claim to be any sort of Winnie the Pooh expert. As a kid, I had an unfathomable dislike for movies with clothes-wearing animals. And any brush with Winnie the Pooh always lead me to the question of wondering what a “Pooh” was in the first place. After watching Christopher Robin, I have the dis...

Hotel Transylvania 3

It’s round 3 for the Hotel Transylvania franchise and boy has it returned with a fresh coat of paint. While I enjoyed both of the first movies, I never revisited them after seeing them at the cinema. So let’s have a recap shall we? The first film, Dracula’s motivation is to prevent his teenage daughte...

Incredibles 2

  Di: Before we dive into this much-anticipated (by me, anyway) sequel, I think it’s impossible not to give a brief nod to something that’s become a bit of a Pixar tradition: the animated pre-show short film. Jaz: Ooh, yes! It’s called Bao, like the Chinese pork buns, and it’s probably one of my favour...
