  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 17 Dec, 2015

    Unless you have been living under a rock for the last few decades, there's a good chance that you have heard of Star Wars. The intergalactic saga filled with dark wizards, space battles and a rag-tag group of heroes instantly captured the imagination of cinema-goers when it debuted in 1977. From the famous opening text crawl to the blaring trumpets triumphantly introducing John Williams’ amazing score, the world went Star Wars crazy.

  • The Final Girls

    The Final Girls 2015

I mean this is a story about a relatively unknown group of heroes that features…

  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes 2014

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 03 Aug, 2014

    There's a lot to like about Dawn. Like a lot of great sequels, the themes are a lot darker than its predecessor, and that in itself lends an emotional weight to the proceedings, adding to the feeling that there is a lot at stake to the events that unfold on-screen.

    There is a more focus on the apes this time around, and the perfect marriage of technical wizardry coupled with nuanced motion performance allows the film-maker to create scenes that…
