Hell Baby (2014) Review

Hell Baby (2014) Review

If you’re a fan of “Reno 911!” then you’ll probably get a kick out of this reasonably amusing spoof of “Rosemary’s Baby”, “The Omen”, “Devil’s Due” and a dozen other coming-of-the-anti-Christ movies. Starring Leslie Bibb and Rob Corddry (an actor I always get muddled up with David Koechner), it tells the story of a young ..

Storks (2016) Review

‘Where do babies come from?’ isn’t a question I intend to answer in this review but as to where babies may get their attention spans from, this hit and miss scattergun animated comedy may provide some clues.

IF (2024) Review

John Kransinski all but weaponises whimsy in charming but slight fable IF Writer/ Director John Krasinski has a passion when it comes to his projects, and that passion is family. You can see it in A QUIET PLACE and its sequel, and it forms the beating heart of his latest offering, IF. Determined this time ..

The Predator (2018) Review

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 ..
