    Ocean's 8


    Ocean's Eleven pulled off the smugness of it's super cool characters stealing a shit tonne of money because the victim worked as a villain. They were stealing from a bad man. It was a flimsy connection for sure, put the film itself was a light breezy affair, so it was enough to work.

    This time around, they are stealing an insane amount of money (if they can even sell the jewels) from respectable organisations, who are not only entirely innocent…

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom


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

    This would have been a good movie, if:
    ● They'd hired decent writers
    ● They'd created likeable new characters
    ● They'd reduced the 'comedy' by at least half
    ● They'd ditched the entire black market auction plot
    ● They'd not bothered with James Cromwell, he was no Hammond
    ● They'd not used The Lost World: Jurassic Park to:
    ● Copy the entire film structure
    ● Replicate Pete Postlethwaite's character
    ● Replicate Arliss Howard's character
    ● Re-use the 'Friar Tuck' dinosaur…

    Unfilmable my ass.

    Zack Snyder has created a magnificent movie that absolutely got it right. It's a grand film on a large scale with big ideas and more style than most summer films put together.

    I'd recommend repeat viewings before anyone dismissed this as anything but an exceptional film. There is a wealth of material in its 3 hour runtime and a story so dense and intricately woven that it demands to be absorbed fully.

    This is a film made…

  • Cloud Atlas

    Cloud Atlas


    First they revolutionised the action movie for an entire generation.

    Then they made a live action cartoon and redefined the limits of audio visual filmmaking.

    For their hattrick the Wachowskis decided to turn their attention to the fundamental's of cinema and proved there is no limit to story telling if you simply dare to try.

    Audacious in its aspiration and outstanding in its execution Cloud Atlas is a film to take a moment to stand back and marvel at.

    And if that doesn't float your boat then simply watch and have fun picking out all the characters each actor plays.
