• The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes

    The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes



    Snow lands on top.

    An inferno of impressive visuals, writing and performances. Director Francis Lawrence unpacked the history that made Coriolanus Snow (Tom Blyth) the future President of Panem. This particular instalment took us back to when the Hunger Games were in their infancy, giving primary focus on the opportunities given and choices made by Coriolanus that led to his supremacy.

    I liked how the screenplay was split into three chapters (The Mentor, The Prize and The Peacekeeper) each…

  • The Invisible Man

    The Invisible Man


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.


    One night I was sitting and thinking about how to leave Adrian. I was planning the whole thing in my mind. And he was staring at me. Studying me. Without me saying a single word, he said that I could never leave him.

    Cecilia's abusive ex-boyfriend fakes his death and becomes invisible to stalk and torment her. She begins experiencing strange events and decides to hunt down the truth on her own - A staple thriller that delivers on…

  • Soul

  • The Marvels

    The Marvels



    Oh Captain! My Captain!

    The Marvel machine is starting to rattle and combust, screws are loosening and I can smell smoke. Someone call an engineer, quick!

    The Marvels is nothing that we haven't seen before, it only solidified Phase 5's deep decay into a dark abyss that would see Marvel firmly set sail into retirement. The formula is tired, panting for breath, desperate for a new lease of life. I don't see these films building to much, direction seems…

  • Monsters University

    Monsters University



    Scariness is the true measure of a monster. If you are not scary, what kind of a monster are you?

    Was there a demand to know how Mike and Sully first came to pass? Not really. Even still, Monsters University had soul and was a vibrant and sparkling prequel about the virtue of perseverance. It didn’t rock the boat, but audiences were served glistening animation, funny fraternity shenanigans and an ensemble of new gleeful characters.

  • Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

    Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory



    The suspense is terrible! I hope it will last.

    A sweet, swirling vortex of sarcastic, sardonic comedy wrapped up in opulent, animated sets. This is undoubtedly one of the funniest little gems out there. The cast is outstanding, and every single person, no matter how tiny, contributed to the film's classic status, from the charismatic Gene Wilder to the woman who wasn’t willing to give up her box of Wonka bars in exchange for her husband being held hostage - Brilliant stuff!

  • Cloverfield




    Looks like you should've left town a little earlier.

    Cloverfield, a found footage monster movie which follows six friends as they struggle to survive, is primitive filmmaking in its ugliest form.

    It fails to hit any emotional beats with a band of surface level characters that we don't really get to know or care about. The creature that descends upon New York isn't explained either, it merely acts as an "exciting" backdrop for the drama happening at ground level. Dishonourable mention to the monstrous camera work, I get the premise, but prepare for whiplash.

  • Paranormal Activity 2

    Paranormal Activity 2



    I don’t know if the house is haunted, but I hope it is.

    Whilst the acting and visuals weren't its key strength, this second dollop of demon drama provided some effective jump scares, particularly when the cupboard doors swung open, and a story that connected well with the events of its predecessor.

    It was more of the same but to an equal standard, amped up with extra characters, more cameras, and a bigger house. Paranormal Activity 2 will have audiences scanning every nook and cranny in the hope of finding something out of place.

  • Sorority Row

    Sorority Row



    You might wanna deal with that hair first, because it looks shit.

    Apart from a few hilarious catty comments from Jessica, Sorority Row was an unexceptional teen slasher with unimaginative deaths and an unbearably unlikeable cast full of sluts, bitches and misogynistic men.

    I love the fact that Chugs deep throating a bottle of wine didn't kill her, only the tyre iron managed to finish her off. Her blowjobs must be killer. A slut in life and death, what an icon.

  • Paranormal Activity

    Paranormal Activity



    Because what it probably wants is Katie.

    At first, the demon was only having a little harmless fun for the cameras, such as flinging a few keys and creaking a few doors. Perfect material that is suitable for any occasion, including weddings, christenings and birthdays.

    Micah is the real villain here, what a terrible boyfriend, no regard for Katie's feelings, he just wanted to create content. The demon was watching her back and got rid of him. 10/10 the perfect romance movie.

    The Crazies




    A brilliant advert for bottled water.

  • The Creator

    The Creator



    Then we're the same. We can't go to heaven, because you're not good, and I'm not a person.

    A few paces back from being marked as perfection, but I’m happy to see this scale of high-concept sci-fi back on the big screen.

    The Creator
    depicts a future war between the human race and artificial intelligence. Ex-special forces agent Joshua is recruited to hunt down and kill the Creator, the elusive architect of advanced AI. The Creator has developed a…
