  • Aquaman



    I had very high hopes for Aquaman, and my hopes were met, not exceeded. 
    Some quick thoughts...

    It’s a beautiful film to watch and there’s a great soundtrack to boot.

    Momoa and Heard work very well together and have great chemistry. The action scenes are wonderful and plentiful. 

    Was it as serious as I would’ve liked? No
    Is it kick ass and lots of fun? Definitely 

    I can’t wait to see it again.

    Decent story, could be better with what’s on offer, but thankfully Matthew McConnaughey is there to make everything alright...

  • Venom



    Ah Venom, at least you tried. 

    Full disclosure, I did enjoy this. Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams make this so much more worthwhile than it has any right to be. 

    But is enjoying a film simply enough? Perhaps. But what we have on offer here is a pretty bad script, an unspectacular story and dated CGI. Honestly, if you said this came out in 2012 or earlier and Hardy was only starring as Bane now you might just look back…

  • Halloween



    My favourite release of 2018 so far. 

    So intense. Rightly terrifying. Extremely violent. Plenty of gore. 

    An absolute thrill ride from start to finish. 

    The font, the music, the mask, the Strodes. If you are a fan of the 1978 film then you must see this as soon as possible. 

    Tonight was made even better by a very in depth Q&A with Jamie Lee Curtis. She was so sincere and loved every minute of it. 

    I can’t wait to experience this again in 2 weeks.
