    Wonder Woman is, for all but 30 minutes, pretty fantastic.

    Despite a rough opening half hour Wonder Woman manages to take a ‘fish out of water’ story and make it feel fresh and unique. The DC Extended Universe films have been anything but stellar since the release of Man of Steel, which had many problems of its own. This poor track record completely muted my expectations for upcoming DC projects including the upcoming Justice ...

    Jason Bourne is unmistakably another Bourne film and that’s not a bad thing.

    The longer we wait for a movie, the greater our expectations appear to become. However, expectations can so easily lead to disappointment, evidenced by one of this year’s biggest flops, Batman vs. Superman. Unlikely to ever be as revolutionary as The Bourne Identity, Jason Bourne feels slightly formulaic as it hurtles through a fast paced narrative littered with devastating action scenes. That ...

    X-Men: Apocalypse stumbles through a disappointing story.

    The X-Men universe has always been a wonderful thing, with the original trilogy creating a formula for how all of its Marvel successors would play out. The more recent instalments in the mainline First Class and Days of Future Past were nothing but spectacular and refreshed what could have been a stale story. What Apocalypse does right, is start by creating a ...

    One thing that doesn’t come as a surprise; 10 Cloverfield Lane is very good.

    Kept under lock and key 10 Cloverfield Lane, produced by J.J Abrams, came out of nowhere at the start of the year with a trailer that knocked some socks off. Unsurprisingly, the film seemed to be visually intriguing and the premise more so. And with this years sci-fi-thriller answer to Room, 10 Cloverfield Lane delivers throughout. Codenamed The Cellar for most of its ...

    Review: Deadpool

    Ever since the world saw a very strange Deadpool pop up in the Wolverine Origins film, there was a huge amount of hype surrounding the release of Deadpool’s very own movie (with a character closer resembling his comic book self). The wait is finally over and as with all things that are hyped up beyond belief, you sit and wonder was it ...

    Review: The Revenant

    As beautiful as it is brutal, The Revenant is one of the more uncompromising and utterly exhausting films we have seen in a while. It is not one for the faint hearted, the squeamish or the easily distracted. With ruthless opening fight scene that doesn’t cut once, the hand is played. The Revenant will have you in awe visually and drained physically ...

    Review: Creed

    Ever present in my mind was the idea that the Rocky series was this amazing, well-rounded story that will hold up forever. In actuality it is anything but that, with the series spiralling on an ever downward motion until the abomination that was Rocky V. A stale formula attempting to rekindle the working class grit of Rocky is everything that the series ...

    Review: Spectre

    Spectre is the 24th official instalment of the James Bond series and the fourth starring Daniel Craig as Bond. Casino Royale (2006) and Skyfall (2012) saw worldwide praise as two of the greatest Bond films made. The Daniel Craig era of Bond has awoken an edge that was never present, something away from just big set pieces and corny dialogue that made ...

    Review: Mistress America

    Despite sounding like the name of an unusually gifted superhero, Mistress America is in actual fact, the title of a rather curious film that will leave you unsure about what you have just seen. Noah Baumbach takes us on a rather unspecific existential journey through the lives of two soon-to-be stepsisters. When newbie New Yorker and College student Tracy finds her new ...

    Review: Crimson Peak

    Welcome to yet another hauntingly beautiful world created by Guillermo del Toro. The man behind visual masterpieces such as Pan’s Labyrinth and Pacific Rim is back again with a film that oozes all kinds of style while also managing to be terrifyingly creepy. Although it may be a little easy to see the track the film will take throughout the 2 hours, ...

    Review: Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

    First it was Vampires, now it’s dystopian apocalyptic futures and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials is right in the thick of it. You might expect something along the lines of mysteriously distant authority figures, exceptionally strong non-specific aged teenagers and a whole lot of choreographed violence and that’s what you’re going to get, in abundance. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials is the ...

    Review: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

    I have never understood why anyone likes The Notebook. Or the appeal of seeing The Fault in Our Stars. Why do you want to know you are going to be overcome with sadness while watching a film, something that I have derived happiness from for as long as i can remember. Sure, I’m probably not the target audience of the aforementioned and ...

    Review: Ant-Man

    Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU) closes Phase Two with an enormously tiny bang. Stunning visuals, big laughs; Ant-Man is a fun heist film at its core.  Paul Rudd, who you will know from his hilarious comedy roles, is crafty burglar Scott Lang, struggling to transition back to reality after just being released from prison. Unable to hold a job and distanced from his ...

    Review: Terminator Genisys

    More playful than impactful, Terminator Genisys attempts to find its own place within the narrative while paying homage to its predecessors. Since Terminator 2: Judgment Day, one of the greatest films of all-time, there has been a couple of attempts to continue the Terminator narrative. T3: Rise of the Machines (2003) has Arnie attempting to save John Connor from the latest killing ...
