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

Alien: Covenant (2017) Review

Do you think that somewhere, there’s a Twentieth Century Fox Executive kicking himself for not just giving Ridley Scott the money he wanted to make a sci-fi movie about the origin of intelligent life and the concept of meeting one’s creator? Maybe then we wouldn’t be here now, watching him tank the “Alien” franchise into … Continue reading Alien: Covenant (2017) Review

Why Him? (2016) Review

An under-the-radar Christmas movie, what “Why Him?” lacks in plot and substance it more than makes up for in a handful of great performances. When Ned Fleming’s (Bryan Cranston) beloved daughter invites her family out to California for the holidays to meet her new boyfriend, the last thing they expect is for him to be … Continue reading Why Him? (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 Interview (2015) Review

It’s been a couple of months now since the so called Guardians Of Peace (allegedly backed by North Korea) demanding the takedown of “The Interview”.  After Sony’s corporate flip flopping over the release, it finally arrives in the UK this coming weekend. Now that the dust has settled and the GOP have given us a … Continue reading The Interview (2015) Review

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) Review

Where “Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes” was a pleasant much-better-than-expected surprise, it’s sequel (the sequel to the prequel after the [failed*] reboot of the franchise) has a much higher standard to live up to. Set ten years after the events of the previous film, “Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes” picks up … Continue reading Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) 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
