Bloodshot Review

Director: David S.F. Wilson Starring: Vin Diesel, Eiza González, Sam Heughan, Toby Kebbell, and Guy Pearce Bloodshot is the latest movie starring Vin Diesel and it has been made available on demand early due to the Coronavirus pandemic. However, there’s one big question that needs answering: is it worth watching even from the comfort of…


Knives Out Review

Director: Rian Johnson Starring:  Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell, Christopher Plummer Knives Out is the work of writer/director Rian Johnson, the man who gave us Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and who many Star Wars fans want to…


Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw Review

Director: David Leitch Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby, Cliff Curtis and Helen Mirren Ok, so answer me this question: how can you make a huge summer blockbuster hit and it not be tied to a superhero property? Answer: get Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in a movie together and tie it…


Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse Review

Directors: Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, Rodney Rothman Starring: Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, Jake Johnson, Liev Schreiber, Nicolas Cage This isn’t the first time Spider-Man has taken animated form. There has been a shed load of Spider-Man cartoons, and some of them have been rather good. Yet, Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse might be not only…


Hereditary Review

Director: Ari Aster Starring: Toni Collette, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro, Ann Dowd, Gabriel Byrne That a film deserves to be ‘treated with the same respect we have for The Exorcist, The Shining, and Psycho’ is a bold claim, but that is the quote (courtesy of Dazed and Confused) emblazoned across the poster for Ari Aster’s debut feature, Hereditary. Indeed, the…


Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Review

Director: J. A. Bayona Starring: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, B. D. Wong, Rafe Spall, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, James Cromwell, Toby Jones, Ted Levine, Jeff Goldblum After 25 years and several sequels of, shall we say, variable quality, some of the novelty has started to wear off the dinosaur-delivering Jurassic franchise. Sadly, this latest entry sees the series continue to teeter towards extinction: though director J….


My Friend Dahmer Review

Director: Marc Meyers Starring: Ross Lynch, Alex Wolff, Dallas Roberts, and Anne Heche What if someone you knew at school grew up to be a serial killer? This was what happened to John ‘Derf’ Backderf, whose award-winning 2012 graphic novel My Friend Dahmer told the tale of a teenage Backderf’s acquaintance with a young man called Jeffrey Dahmer, who would ultimately become…


Avengers: Infinity War Review

Director: Anthony and Joe Russo Starring:  Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Josh Brolin, Chris Pratt The Marvel Cinematic Universe has now spanned over 18 movies. That’s almost ten years of Marvel superhero movies, and Avengers: Infinity War very much feels like the movie…


A Quiet Place Review

Director: John Krasinski Starring: John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe How to find the words to discuss a film like John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place? Words, or the lack thereof, is very much one of the film’s central themes. A lot of this movie plays out like a silent film; you could describe it…


I, Tonya Review

Director: Craig Gillespie Starring: Margot Robbie, Sebastian Stan, Allison Janney, Julianne Nicholson, Bobby Cannavale Given the extent to which she gripped the world’s attention back in 1994, it’s perhaps surprising that it’s taken Tonya Harding’s story nearly 25 years to make it to the big screen. In Craig Gillespie’s efforts to bring together the truly wild…


Coco Review

Director: Lee Unkrich Starring: Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Alanna Ubach, Renée Victor, Ana Ofelia Murguía, Edward James Olmos Legendary though Pixar may be, the animation studio’s recent form has been patchy at best – for every Inside Out there’s been a Good Dinosaur. Thankfully their Dia de Los Muertos-themed Coco is a wonderfully creative, if…


Last Flag Flying Review

Director: Richard Linklater Starring: Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, Laurence Fishburne, J. Quinton Johnson A new Richard Linklater film is always something to take notice of. Over the years he’s proven himself to be one of the most interesting directors working in Hollywood and he’s shown that he’s able to effectively work in all sorts of different…


Molly’s Game Review

Director: Aaron Sorkin Starring: Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, Jeremy Strong, Chris O’Dowd Aaron Sorkin basically invented the faced-paced walking-and-talking trope you now see in so many films and TV shows. He was the man behind all of that, yet no one can quite do it with the same panache. You can really tell when it’s…


Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri Review

Director: Martin McDonagh Starring: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, John Hawkes, Peter Dinklage It’s been twenty years since Frances McDormand won an Oscar for her legendary turn as a folksy Minnesota detective in Fargo. Now her superb performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, the latest film from In Bruges-director Martin McDonagh, could see her…


Battle Of The Sexes Review
