Birdman review

Birdman review

It’s been a while since we saw Michael Keaton (Robocop (2014)) at his very best, but in Birdman, he’s managed to surpass the brilliance of even Batman in a role that has more than a passing similarity with his own life. It’s a performance that’s mirrored to varying degrees by all of the members of(…)

Esio Trot film review

Esio Trot film review

It’s been a fairly long time since the work of Roald Dahl got a new adaptation, but the BBC delivered a treat of a production in their Esio Trot film over Christmas, and while there’s a lot more of our review to come, the gist is that it’s well worth a watch, especially while it’s(…)

’71 film review

’71 film review

Little publicised and only distributed on a limited release, director Yann Demange’s ’71 is a rough gem of an indie film with a whole lot more credibility than the majority of Hollywood’s output to-date in 2014. As directorial debuts go, it’s a pretty impressive first movie and it acts as a solid introduction to a(…)

The Inbetweeners 2 review

The Inbetweeners 2 review

The hit E4 comedy returned for its second outing on the big screen recently and it’s definitely official; Inbetweeners 2 is at least as funny as the first film, if not a bit funnier. For anyone with a slightly puerile sense of humour, like us, you’ll be cracked up for the majority of the film,(…)

Guardians Of The Galaxy review

Guardians Of The Galaxy review

We may have found our new favourite Marvel action hero movie, because Guardians Of The Galaxy literally has it all. It’s got comedy, action, amazing special effects and CGI, great characters, a strong storyline, awesome baddies and enough serious intent to bring it all together into the excellent sci-fi hit that it is. Star Lord,(…)

How To Train Your Dragon 2 review

How To Train Your Dragon 2 review

It was always going to be a tough ask, following up on the break-out success of the opening movie, but in How To Train Your Dragon 2, Dreamworks has lived up to the massive expectations of Berk, Hiccup and Toothless fans everywhere. It’s packed with action, great animation, a good storyline, moments of genuine awe(…)

Transformers: Age Of Extinction review

Transformers: Age Of Extinction review

Sometimes you have to judge a film by the intentions of its creator, as opposed to its ability to inspire pathos or capture a little window into our souls, and that’s undoubtedly the case with Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age Of Extinction. With some of the finest CGI we’ve seen on the big screen and an(…)

X-Men: Days Of Future Past review

X-Men: Days Of Future Past review

If you’re anything like us, the X-Men have probably been a big part of your life since primary school and the introduction of the X-Men movie series has built on the comic book and TV cartoon to create even more brilliant viewing. This culminated recently with the release of X-Men: Days Of Future Past and(…)

Godzilla (2014) review

Godzilla (2014) review

Under a cloak of enshrouded and shadowy hype Godzilla (2014) crashed onto the big screen recently, drawing in some pretty big audiences and taking the #1 spot in both the US and UK box office charts. However, sadly the movie itself doesn’t really live up to the expectations that the build up to the release(…)

The Monuments Men review

The Monuments Men review

When you pull together a cast that includes George Clooney, Matt Damon, Jean Dujardin, John Goodman, Bill Murray, and Cate Blanchett you sort of expect it to be something special, but sadly The Monuments Men just doesn’t quite pull it off. It’s entertaining enough, but there’s a little too much in the way of mixed(…)
