  • Everly

    Everly

    ★★★

    Salma Hayek plays Everly, a woman trapped in her own apartment while she is hunted by a horde of different assassins and armed people .. And that's about it! We are told why she is the target of so many but in a film with so much gun play, violent scenes and parts where it feels ripped from a video game none of it really matters! Don't watch such a film expecting too much of a plot .. Better to just turn your brain off and enjoy the body count.

  • Bad Samaritan

    Bad Samaritan

    ★★★

    While working as valets at a fancy restaurant, best friends Sean and Derek take turns robbing the houses of certain customers while they dine. Sean jumps at the opportunity to rip off Cale Erendreich (played by David Tennant of 'Doctor Who' fame) but ultimately finds himself regretting it when he discovers what is stashed at Cale's home ....

    The film has some uneven scenes but makes up for it in other places and has enough thrills to keep you interested…

  • Let's Be Cops

    Let's Be Cops

    ★★½

    Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. play two pals who dress as police officers for a costume party then pretend to be actual cops outside of it but soon find themselves in over their heads! The two male leads are believable as friends (they were both on the series 'New Girl') And there are quite a few funny moments here and there (some of which were unfortunately shown in the trailer ...)

  • Dead Man on Campus

    Dead Man on Campus

    ★★★

    Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Tom Everett Scott play two friends who party way too much in college. When they learn that they need perfect grades to stay afloat they find a loop hole that if they have a roommate that commits suicide they can cruise by for at least a year without having to study. The premise is a bit dark but there are some funny scenes scattered throughout from the two leads and the hilarious Lochlyn Munro who plays the potential suicidal third roommate.

  • Mr. Right

    Mr. Right

    ★★★★

    After a messy break up, Martha (Anna Kendrick) meets a seemingly perfect guy in Francis (Sam Rockwell) but there's only one problem in that he is a hitman! The two leads play off each other really well and some of the sequences / violent scenes seem a little cartoonish (but that isn't a a bad thing!) It is a fun movie where you can simply turn your brain off and enjoy the quirky Kendrick who seems to be comfortable in this role and who steals the show.

  • A Simple Favor

    A Simple Favor

    ★★★★½

    Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) plays a single parent who has her own vlog and befriends the lavish Emily (Blake Lively) because their sons go to the same school. The friendship has it's strange moments (you'll see) But the two ladies bond regardless. Things take a random turn when Emily suddenly goes missing and Stephanie wants to know what happened to her and that's all I can say without giving away anything (I've already said too much ..!) Lively and Kendrick are cast perfectly as two fast friends who each hold secrets ....

  • Down to You

    Down to You

    ★★★½

    Freddie Prinze Jr. and Julia Stiles play Al and Imogen who meet and immediately fall for one another, they go through the typical (and not so typical!) ups and downs of a relationship and the main stars are believable as a couple. There are some cute moments here and there as well! Look out for the music sequence which for me stands out the most.

  • Senior Trip

    Senior Trip

    ★★½

    The President of the United States invites a class of misfits to Washington D.C. to share what they think is wrong with the education system but there is something more sinister afoot! There isn't much to the plot and the teenagers are typical for this kind of movie (stoners, fat guy who eats all the time, nerds etc.) The film isn't as memorable as other raunchy comedies from the 90s but there are some funny scenes! Plus look out for…

  • Goon: Last of the Enforcers

    Goon: Last of the Enforcers

    The first Goon film was pretty decent but this sequel doesn't in any way live up to the original. This time around Doug has a new enemy, is plagued with injuries and must decide if he wants to keep playing hockey or to change jobs and be there for pregnant wife Eva. The entire time I watched it I found myself looking to see how much time was left until it was over ... Best to stick with the first one and pretend this one doesn't exist ...

  • How to Be a Player

    How to Be a Player

    ★★★

    Bill Bellamy plays 'Dray' an overly confident ladies man who despite being in a relationship with one girl he wants to sleep with a lot of them! We are shown from the very start just how smart Dray is when it comes to all of the women he hooks up with.

    Tired of his cheating ways his sister hatches a plan to take him down a notch by inviting all of the women he does sleep with to one party…

  • Mr. Fix It

    Mr. Fix It

    ★★½

    Lance Valenteen (David Boreanaz) or 'Mr. Fix It' is hired by men who have recently been dumped by their girlfriends. He acts as such a bad new boyfriend that each girl runs into the arms of their ex but what Lance wasn't counting on is falling in love himself ..

  • Mr. Destiny

    Mr. Destiny

    ★★★★

    On his 35th Birthday Larry Burrows' (James Belushi) life is about to change! Down in the dumps over everything leading up till then he meets a guardian angel in Mike (Michael Caine) who grants Larry a different opportunity at life, back in the day Larry struck out during an important baseball game and he defines his less than memorable existence based on that one single moment ....

    Larry wishes things were different and Mike helps him change the past (hitting…
