    ★★★★★

    'I have behaved poorly, I have behaved bravely, I have behaved bizarrely to some. I deny none of this and have no regrets because I have lost and found parts of myself that I never knew existed.'

    Val is a beautiful documentary; a truly life-affirming and touching look back at the life and career of the extremely talented and previously occasionally enigmatic actor, Val Kilmer.
    The piece is so personal, intimate and poignant because of how moving Kilmer's story really…

    ★★★★

    'All of the training, all of the sacrifice, no one can hide forever. It's time to show the world who I really am'

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is a triumph!

    I was pumped out of my mind when it was announced Marvel was finally delivering its first film with an Asian lead. And when the relatively unknown but intensely energetic Simu Liu showed his face at Comic-Con 2019, well needless to say I was betting my…

    Friday the 13th Marathon (watched concurrently with Dead Meat’s kill count re-count series)

    But alas, it didn't. All it took was a telekinetic, angsty teenager unleashing her inner demons on a pontoon to…

    The Matrix Revolutions

    The creepy Frenchman returns and this time he owns a weird sex club and chomps on olives?

    An immense failure in every way conceivable, The Matrix Revolutions is an utter embarrassment to the original flick and a true slog to get through. Lacking virtually ANY of the originality, nuance or stylistic flourishes that made the first film tick so effortlessly, Revolutions has to be the most disappointing and offensive sequel I have ever had the displeasure of experiencing.
    For a…

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★★

    ‘TDK stands for The Detachable Kid? What the f*ck?’ 

    So, after David Ayer got played like a fiddle by Warner Brothers in 2016 and an abhorrent rendition of our beloved group of badly-behaved antiheroes debuted on the silver screen, the studio needed to have a long, hard think about how best to move forward, if you catch my drift.

    As it happened, there was also some tomfoolery of sorts going on across the street at the House of Mouse. James…
