  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

    Pride and Prejudice and Zombies 2016

    ★★★ Watched 26 Jun, 2016

    "Where he should have gone for all-out laughs through the sheer ludicrousness of his film's high concept, Steers instead attempts to make a movie half sincere period drama and half zombie horror, hoping that the comedy will emerge organically where the two meet. In fairness to him it does at times, just not often enough to make the whole thing work as satisfyingly as you'd like". Read my full review of Pride And Prejudice And Zombies at Film Intel

    The Conjuring 2 2016

    ★★★ Watched 18 Jun, 2016

    "Both this second installment and the original film offer straightforward, traditional Hollywood horror done well. They're far from perfect and never do anything as interesting as more innovative genre offerings such as Green Room or The Witch, but Wan knows what he's doing with an able cast, and at the moment that's enough to place The Conjuring at the top of the horror series rankings".

    Joe Pesci delivers the biggest Christmas miracle of the '90s by not swearing for the entire film. Full review here

  • The Dark Knight Rises

    The Dark Knight Rises 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 09 Aug, 2012

    The weakest of Nolan's Batman films, but not by much. Strong performances and breathtaking action sequences, coupled with emotional and thematic threads satisfyingly tied up; this is a great conclusion to a superb trilogy. Full review here
