Aquaman (2018) Review

Imagine, ten years ago, if someone had told you the future of the DC cinematic universe would rest on the shoulders of…Aquaman. Yeah, that Aquaman, the character who had only really made it into pop culture consciousness as a fish-wrangling joke. Fresh from the, if not triumph, then at least plummet-arresting crunching gear change of … Continue reading Aquaman (2018) Review

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Review

Guy Richie wears his influences on his sleeve in Galfridian geezer romp “King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword”.

Seventh Son (2015) Review

*MINOR SPOILERS* Like a lot of people, I’ve spent the past few weeks binge-watching “Game Of Thrones” all the way from Robert Baratheon pitching up at Winterfell to Bran Stark finally reaching the Weirwood Tree home of the Three-Eyed Raven, so the bar for sword and sorcery was set pretty fucking* high when I went … Continue reading Seventh Son (2015) Review

Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014) Review

Do you remember when summer SciFi blockbusters were unashamedly fun? Do you remember how you felt watching “Return Of The Jedi”? Before you got all old and cynical and ironic. Before your “Star Wars” heart was hardened by special edition vandalism and successive soulless prequels? Before the angry words and bitter sentiment of a million revisionist … Continue reading Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014) Review

How To Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) Review

It's been four years since we were first introduced to Hiccup and Toothless on the big screen, and although that's a big gap for an animated title, we were at least treated to a couple of TV series to keep us up to date with events on the island of Berk.
