Good Boys (2019) isn’t nearly as transgressive as it wants to make out, but is still plenty funny

Good Boys Review

There’s been a bit of Helen Lovejoy handwringing about the appropriateness of using young actors to anchor a crude adult-orientated comedy but while the language certainly isn’t entirely suitable for its young cast to watch, there’s nothing in the movie itself – swear words included – your average 12 year old hasn’t heard or used … Continue reading Good Boys (2019) isn’t nearly as transgressive as it wants to make out, but is still plenty funny

The Predator (2018) Review

The Predator franchise hasn’t had as much bad luck as its studio stablemate the Alien. Sure they both clashed in a pair of adequate/ terrible movies but at least our favourite extra-terrestrial trophy hunter hasn’t appeared in anything as aggressively stupid as “Alien: Covenant”...until now, that is. When a renegade Predator crashes to Earth, hotly … Continue reading The Predator (2018) Review

The 4th Annual Craggus Movie Awards

For a year which will surely go down in history for its polarisation, as far as movies went there was a concerted effort to stay centred in an unremarkable consensus of mediocrity, with the average score of the 95 films I watched in the cinema a paltry 6.5/10. 2016 saw 409 movies watched (and rewatched) … Continue reading The 4th Annual Craggus Movie Awards

From “Funny Or Die”, the entertainment production company founded by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy comes a film for the ages, the long lost motion picture based on Donald Trump's best-selling book “The Art of the Deal”. The Donald recounts his life and triumphs to a young boy who stumbles into his office … Continue reading Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie (2016) Review

Room (2016) Review

Adapted for the screen - from her own novel - by Emma Donoghue, "Room" is a challenging film to watch. Deeply harrowing, nerve shreddingly tense but ultimately richly rewarding; it’s a beautifully realised story of courage, love and resilience. Ma (Brie Larson) and her young son Jack (Jacob Tremblay) live in ‘Room’. For Jack, Room … Continue reading Room (2016) Review

The Smurfs 2 (2013) Review

I quite enjoyed the original Smurf movie. Sure, it was saccharine sweet, predictable by-the-numbers family entertainment but I thought it was a fair attempt to reintroduce The Smurfs to a contemporary audience following a significant absence from the public consciousness. The film was appealingly cast and the whole unlikely venture succeeded for me through the … Continue reading The Smurfs 2 (2013) Review
