    Knives Out

    ★★★★½

    You know those movies that make you remember why it is that you love cinema? Happy to announce that Knives Out is one of those movies. I have elected to forget the period in my life where I had never experienced the joys of such a film. That is all of my life, but so be it! I don't know the last time I felt so fucking endeared to a movie. I love Knives Out's fearlessness; what it is covering…

  • Cats

    Cats

    ★★★

    By now, you're probably aware that Cats has had a reception not dissimilar to Harold Shipman at a nursing home Christmas party. Seemingly doomed from the start, Cats has went from a perturbing trailer to a career-ending car crash from which no one will recover. 1.5 star average? Yikes.

    And technically? A horrific film. The obfuscating cinematography and embarrassing visual effects come together to create a grimy, frightening orgasm of feline moans and dank, dark London streets that calls to…

  • The Good Son

    The Good Son

    ★★½

    Tepid reworking of a Bad Seed-style child psychopath story with flashes of potential that it never actively attempts to mine. The Good Son could've went either full-out madcap tiny terror horror film or full-throttle absurdist camp, but unfortunately director Joseph Ruben doesn't commit to one or the other, toeing the line between ominous and ludicrous by ultimately making no interesting decisions whatsoever.

    With that said, it's still quite a lot of fun to watch; Culkin is wooden and utterly miscast,…

  • Soapdish

    Soapdish

    ★★★

    This, for me, is a very difficult film to review and rate as, for the most part, this is a gloriously funny, sweet-natured and campy farce right up my street. Laugh-a-minute, Soapdish satirises the inherent silliness of daytime television and of the TV and acting industry in general. Bolstered by a brilliant all-star cast and a superb comedic performance from the inimitable Sally Field, this is just so much fun to watch and an utter joy - downright five star…

    Moonrise Kingdom

    ★★★★★

    I adore the medium of film. The fact that anything can happen, in any place, any time period, excites me in a way nothing else can. Of course, there's the stinkers of the movie world, but for every unfortunate event playing out on screen, there's two or three prodigious ones. However, the film world may be dandy and fresh, but there's one thing that has always got on my nerves.

    Whenever a child star portrays a lead character in a…
