Film Review: The Wife

1879, Norway. A frustrated and belittled housewife decides to leave her ostensibly kind husband and children to try and find a life for herself after realizing that she has spent years living in the shadows. So goes the classic play by Henrik Ibsen, A Doll’s House, which shocked contemporary audiences who could scarcely believe that […]Read More

Film Review: Robin Hood

The legendary (if overused) tale of Robin Hood is back again in Otto Bathurst’s latest directorial adventure, featuring the skilled archer as he battles to save his land from the cunning leadership of the deceitful Sheriff of Nottingham (Ben Mendelsohn). Another failed iteration of a classic tale We’re introduced to Robin of Loxley (Taron Egerton), […]Read More

Film Review: The Nun

Essence of the supernatural and paranormal have been around for centuries: ghost sightings, the unholy and even the odd poltergeist. The film industry has been no stranger to this element of our supposed afterlife, with films such as The Amityville Horror, The Shining, and most recently, The Conjuring Universe all drawing focus to spirituality and immortality.  On the […]Read More

Film Review: BlacKkKlansman

Despite a mixed bag of recent releases, Spike Lee’s new film, a blistering race dramedy entitled BlacKkKlansman, is a stylish yet horrendous gut-punch, that draws in the audience with dark humour before ending with a grave sense of dread. A boldly-coloured tale of days gone by Resplendent in his seventies collars and earth-toned cords, Ron Stallwarth […]Read More

Film Review: Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

If there was one thing the world needed, a second Mamma Mia film was it. Ten years have flown by since the first movie and in all truth, many highly doubted there would be a second one. Until this year. Cue catchy songs, questionable costumes, dazzling dance routines and a star-studded line up of some […]Read More

Film Review: Annabelle: Creation

Dolls. Strange aren’t they? Some are cute, some are ugly, and some are possessed.

Film Review: Logan Lucky

Marking one of cinemas most anticipated returns of 2017 is Steven Soderbergh’s inevitable comeback movie Logan Lucky. Following his self-imposed exile from Hollywood in 2013 he’s not exactly been quiet, however his return to feature film was what fans were most excited for, and it’s certainly worth the wait, a classic Soderbergh heist with a […]Read More

Film Review: The Wall

In a tired genre that has made it increasingly hard to create a movie that is refreshingly different to the war film clichés, by providing innovating yet still gripping new takes on the subject, The Wall is a welcome addition. Playing out like the lovechild of 127 Hours and American Sniper, it is part survival […]Read More

Film Review: Baby Driver

Edgar Wright has an extremely good record when it comes to making films. He has gained acclaim for films like Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, as well as Scott Pilgrim vs The World. However, all of these are satirical or focused on comedy, which his new film, Baby Driver, is not. So I […]Read More

Film Review: War Machine

Having watched the trailer for this new Netflix original some time ago, I was incredibly excited to watch the entire thing, going on the initial clips I had seen, but it turns out it wasn’t at all what I was expecting, due entirely to the misleading promise of the trailer that looked to be both […]Read More

Film Review: Baywatch

We’re living in a time of reboots and remakes, while Baywatch was never the first property on the tip of audience’s tongues it definitely seemed to be one of the first for Paramount pictures. With an honest self-deprecating approach, it not’s exactly a bad idea. However, as with anything, execution is what matters. While the […]Read More
