AssHat finds himself in the danger zone of giving a perfect score after playing with The Boys (2019)

The Boys TV Review

New from the creative minds (Seth Rogen and Garth Ennis) that adapted the dark, barbaric and satirical comic book "Preacher" for Amazon comes another bleak, cynical and darkly humourous tale in "The Boys". Based in a universe where superheroes walk amongst us, a sub-set of which are known as "The Seven" and are managed by … Continue reading AssHat finds himself in the danger zone of giving a perfect score after playing with The Boys (2019)

Blockers (2018) Review

Staggering its way into cinemas, “Blockers” strikes a clumsy blow for equality by showing that dumb, crass, tasteless teenage sex comedies aren’t just for boys anymore. Yay, equality? Three friends make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night but when one of their parents accidentally intercepts a text conversation, their parents band together … Continue reading Blockers (2018) Review

The Disaster Artist (2017) Review

From the last days of Pompeii, through Titanic to The Hindenburg, Hollywood has a long history of adapting disasters into motion pictures, so it was only a matter of time before Tommy Wiseau’s magnificent octopus was itself finally turned into an unironically watchable movie. When aspiring actor Greg Sestero (Dave Franco) encounters the bizarre and … Continue reading The Disaster Artist (2017) Review

Sausage Party (2016) Review

You know those hilarious conversations when you’re shooting the shit with your friends, high or drunk or whatever? Now, imagine someone made an animated movie based on them. Welcome to “Sausage Party”. In a world where food has consciousness, all they ever want is to be chosen and taken to ‘the great beyond’. But when … Continue reading Sausage Party (2016) Review

Bad Neighbours 2 (2016) Review

I love “Bad Neighbours”, even though it represented a watershed moment for me personally: it was the first time I’d found myself siding with the ‘boring’ old folk in a war of the generations comedy. I’m not getting any younger so sure, sign me up for another tour of duty and let the second park … Continue reading Bad Neighbours 2 (2016) Review

The Night Before (2015) Review

If the sentimentality of “Christmas With The Coopers” doesn’t get your fairy lights twinkling and the spooky shenanigans of “Krampus” leave your pudding more duff than plum, perhaps bawdy festive comedy “The Night Before” will put the snap back in your Christmas cracker. From the director and stars of “50/50”, “The Night Before” tells the … Continue reading The Night Before (2015) Review

The Watch (2012) Review

Some films never really escape development hell, and “The Watch” spent four miserable years stuck in rewrites and recastings before finally limping into cinemas just in time for its marketing to be hastily pulled in the wake of real life tragedy. In retrospect, they should have just let this slip ignominiously to a quiet direct-to-DVD … Continue reading The Watch (2012) Review

This Is The End (2013) Review

The stoner movie to end all stoner movies – literally. Seth Rogen’s latest is a drug, alcohol, sex and Milky Way-fuelled comedy blowout with apocalyptic bite as he sends up himself, his friends and the celebrity LA lifestyle. Revolving around a housewarming party thrown by James Franco, played with a indulgent, knowing egotistism by, erm, James … Continue reading This Is The End (2013) Review
