Movie Review: Eragon (2006)

I’ve been on something of a movie review kick lately, talking about some big and small screen adaptations of books that I’ve loved since I was a kid and now here we are with the 2006 movie adaptation of Eragon by Christopher Paolini. I promised it in my review of the adaptations of the Alex … Continue reading Movie Review: Eragon (2006)

Movie Review: The Celluloid Woman (2020)

Today I will be reviewing the short film ‘The Celluloid Woman’ which was submitted to us by director and writer Anantha Krishnan. The movie was released in July 2020, and this review comes with a quick apology, as I’ve had this sitting burning a hole in my inbox for a while, but I’ve finally managed … Continue reading Movie Review: The Celluloid Woman (2020)

Movie Review: Slay Belles (2018)

A Review of Slay Belles, a movie directed by SpookyDan Walker and featuring Kristina Klebe, Susan Slaughter and Hannah Minx.

Movie Review: Cleek (2017)

The first thing that really struck me about the film was the incredible cinematography, the opening shots are amazing, the drone shots in particular are really impressive but not drawn out, I have noticed a trend in some indie movies where to pad the run time they will fill it full of long shots, and … Continue reading Movie Review: Cleek (2017)

Movie Review: Don’t Look Under the Bed

For no particular reason whatsoever I remembered this film existed yesterday and decided to review it. I was surprised, especially considering this was a Disney Channel Original Movie, that a lot of people I asked either didn't remember or didn't know about this movie. I think this was compounded by the fact that it had … Continue reading Movie Review: Don’t Look Under the Bed

Movie Review: Blackball

Blackball has all the makings of a cult classic, it's certainly an engaging plot, but it never quite gained the recognition that I felt it deserved. In fact the reviews were largely mixed, with some agreeing, like me, that it's a carefree and enjoyable little sporty romp, while others felt, with some merit I suppose … Continue reading Movie Review: Blackball

Movie Review: Gattaca

Maybe it's just the literary nerd in me but I really like movies which open with a quote of some kind, and the more obscure the better in my opinion. Gattaca opens with a pair of whoppers, the first is a poignant quote from Ecclesiastes 7:13, "consider god's handiwork who can straighten what he hath … Continue reading Movie Review: Gattaca

Movie Review: Inception

Inception is a really good movie, but despite the rave reviews and personal recommendations from people whose opinions I trust, it took me way too long to actually get around to watching this movie. Good or not, it's far from perfect, and lies heavily upon some pretty sketchy premises, but those don't notably impact my … Continue reading Movie Review: Inception

Movie Review: Limitless

Considering the trippy, very cognitive nature of this movie, that it felt like one big long 'Hangover' from Bradley Cooper. Shit Joke Alert! And I'm starting off early this time. I think that Limitless makes my personal Top 5 favourites movies, joining movies like Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Shawshank Redemption, Bulletproof Monk and Disturbia. … Continue reading Movie Review: Limitless

Movie Review: James Bond – GoldenEye

So I think I will open with a dumb joke, James Bond might not have a Golden Eye, but he sure does have a eye for the ladies...haha. Okay got that out of the way early, let's move on with the review. First thing, as we progress, as more movies come out each year and … Continue reading Movie Review: James Bond – GoldenEye

Movie Review: Pulp Fiction

I don't want to colour the rest of the review with this statement but I'd like to say that this movie is a cinematic gem, and while personally I am not a fan of Quentin Tarantino, he knows how to make an engaging film. As I just said, Quentin Tarantino is not my favourite person … Continue reading Movie Review: Pulp Fiction

Movie Review: Scott Pilgrim vs The World

They really went all out to capture the retro game vibe that's central to Scott Pilgrim, they even have a delightful eight-bit version of the universal studios logo, which I think sets us up perfectly for the visual style prevalent in the movie. Following on from that, the establishing shot resembles panels of a comic … Continue reading Movie Review: Scott Pilgrim vs The World
